  1. Result

    A result is the final consequence of a sequence of actions or events expressed qualitatively or quantitatively. Possible results include advantage, disadvantage, gain, injury, loss, value and victory. There may be a range of possible outcomes associated with an event depending on the point of view, historical distance or relevance. Reaching no result can mean that actions are inefficient, ineffective, meaningless or flawed. Some types of result are as follows: ⁕in general, the outcome of any kind of research, action or phenomenon ⁕in games or wars, the result includes the identity of the victorious party and possibly the effects on the environment ⁕in mathematics, the final value of a calculation, function or statistical expression, or the final statement of a theorem that has been proven ⁕in statistics, any information analyzed, extracted or interpolated from polls, tests or logs ⁕in computer sciences, the return value of a function, state of a system or list of records matching a query. The result type is the data type of the data returned by a function. ⁕in science, the outcome of an experiment
