The theory of time scales was created to unify continuous and discrete analysis. Difference and differential equations can be studied simultaneously by studying dynamic equations on time scales.
Although theoretical to a high extent, time scale tries to link a bridge between continuous and discrete analysis [1, 2].

This report abstracts these statutes, with each chapter providing a discrete analysis of the purpose and scope of major programs and activities authorized in each statute and definitions of key statutory terms.
As far as phonetics is concerned, it has become clear especially from the work of Labov (1994) that sound change is a stochastic phenomenon and that standard statistical methods such as multivariate analysis, linear regression models, and multidimensional scaling can reveal much stronger regularities in the seemingly irregular exemplar data than any discrete analysis could show.
Discrete analysis is based on condition of equilibriums, made for the nodal points of the cable.
Each chapter contains a discrete analysis of the most significant cases during this period while a timeline allows us to map the trajectory of the key doctrines.
And while no concrete evidence can predict the future of discrete analysis within the environmental market, perhaps the best evidence of the future is found in the success of discrete analyzers in clinical laboratories--especially when only one representative from a short list of discrete analyzer companies chose to answer IBO's questions.
