On April 14, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame held their 27th annual induction Ceremony.
Upon release, I had to report to the induction center again, and, after refusing once more, I received another month behind bars.
induction would be a fitting gesture, even now when the honor would be posthumous.
I was immediately admitted to the hospital and induction was started for me to go into labor.
All sciences face the “problem of induction” or uncertainties that arise in generalizing from observations.
But this was not the worst defect of Mill's attempt at a junction of old and new through Whately's conception of induction.
induction is a scientific process with which Samuel Brohls are familiar.
Explain the process of induction called the Method of Difference, and give some new instances of its application.
To prove or disprove the induction, we must resort to deduction and experiment.
This is proved by induction; but the proposition has not been demonstrated as regards universal Being.
late 14c., "advancement toward the grace of God;" also (c.1400) "formal installation of a clergyman," from Old French induction (14c.) or directly from Latin inductionem (nominative inductio) "a leading in, introduction," noun of action from past participle stem of inducere "to lead" (see induce).
As a term in logic (early 15c.) it is from Cicero's use of inductio to translate Greek epagoge "leading to" in Aristotle. Induction starts with known instances and arrives at generalizations; deduction starts from the general principle and arrives at some individual fact. As a term of science, c.1800; military service sense is from 1934, American English.

The process of initiating or increasing the production of an enzyme or other protein at the level of genetic transcription.
The period from the first administration of anesthesia to the establishment of a depth of anesthesia adequate for surgery.
The change in form or shape caused by the action of one tissue of an embryo on adjacent tissues or parts, as by the diffusion of hormones.
A modification imposed upon the offspring by the action of environment on the germ cells of one or both parents.
The generation of electromotive force in a closed circuit by a varying magnetic flux through the circuit.
A process of reasoning that moves from specific instances to predict general principles. (Compare deduction.)
A method of proving statements about well-ordered sets. If S is a well-ordered set with ordering "<", and we want to show that a property P holds for every element of S, it is sufficient to show that, for all s in S,
IF for all t in S, t < s => P(t) THEN P(s)
I.e. if P holds for anything less than s then it holds for s. In this case we say P is proved by induction.
The most common instance of proof by induction is induction over the natural numbers where we prove that some property holds for n=0 and that if it holds for n, it holds for n+1.
(In fact it is sufficient for "<" to be a well-founded partial order on S, not necessarily a well-ordering of S.)
