(category theory) A morphism whose codomain is the domain of a parallel pair of morphisms and which forms part of the limit of that parallel pair. Equivalently, a morphism which equalizes a parallel pair of morphisms in a limiting way, which is to say that any other morphism which equalizes that parallel pair factors through this limiting morphism.

“His quick wrister snuck between Crawford's right skate and the post for the equalizer with three minutes left.”

“The equalizer coefficients are periodically transmitted to a converter within the transmitter over a secondary channel.”

“I think that when it looks like somebody's got things a lot better than we do, we like to see them fall because it's sort of a great equalizer.”

equation

The act or process of equating two or more things, or the state of those things being equal (that is, identical).

(mathematics) An assertion that two expressions are equal, expressed by writing the two expressions separated by an equal sign; from which one is to determine a particular quantity.

“This mastering process uses tools such as compressors, equalizers and limiters to reduce frequency and amplitude imbalances between tracks.”

“This panel would then be connected through a patchbay to a microphone, line and program amplifiers, equalizers and echo sends.”

“By separating the equalization of the signal to separate equalizers, the cost of the equalization can be reduced without substantially affecting performance.”

“Relationships between other values from different quantity spaces can be defined using equalities and correspondences.”

“In full equilibrium, as Johnson pointed out, both equalities hold and the two theories are formally identical.”

“In a series of papers published over the following years Edmonds examined a whole variety of different conditions on the functions f and g which give the required equalities.”
