Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • n Exogen (Bot) A plant belonging to one of the greater part of the vegetable kingdom, and which the plants are characterized by having c wood bark, and pith, the wood forming a layer between the other two, and increasing, if at all, by the animal addition of a new layer to the outside next to the bark. The leaves are commonly netted-veined, and the number of cotyledons is two, or, very rarely, several in a whorl. Cf. Endogen.

Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n exogen In botany, a plant in which the growth of the stem is in successive concentric layers. The exogens, otherwise called dicotyledons (see dicotyledon), form the larger of the two classes into which phænogamous plants are divided. They are usually considered as including two subclasses, the angiosperms and the gymnosperms, though the latter, which have essentially the same structure and mode of growth, but differ in having naked ovules, are by some late authorities separated as a distinct class. See endogen.

In a modelization, errors on data are exogenous, we do not know exactly from where they come.

In particular, Gabaix (1999) assumed that, for cities of small sizes, there are some exogenous factors preventing further decaying of their population (see also (Levy and Solomon 1996, Malcai et al. 1999)).
Theory of Zipf's Law and of General Power Law Distributions with Gibrat's law of Proportional Growth
We will consider two different mechanisms for the exit of a firm: (i) when the firm total asset value becomes smaller than a given minimum threshold (which can vary with time and with countries) and (ii) when an exogenous shock occurs, modeling for instance operational risks, independently of the size of the firm.

The motivation for the Blume and Easley model was to understand whether rationality is the only criterion for survival under natural selection, a topic that has generated considerable interest in the evolutionary economics literature.2 All of the work above assumes that ob jective outcomes are exogenously given.
The Reality Game
Physical layer scheduling decisions are made at the level of packets, and packet-level models with exogenous arrival processes have long been employed to study network performance, as well as design scheduling policies that more efficiently utilize network resources.
On the Flow-level Dynamics of a Packet-switched Network
However, they model the arrival of new packets to the network exogenously.
On the Flow-level Dynamics of a Packet-switched Network
In order to construct the stability region under the MWUM-α policy, first define the set of packet arrival rates by Λ , nλ ∈ RE + with λ ≤ Πs, 1⊤ s ≤ 1o . + : ∃ s ∈ RS Imagine that the network has no packet arrivals from flows, but instead has packets arriving according to exogenous processes.
On the Flow-level Dynamics of a Packet-switched Network
Suppose that λ ∈ RE + is the vector of exogenous arrival rates, so that packets arrived to each queue e at rate λe .

The quantity PRIMAL(λ) is called the effective load of a system with exogenous packet arrivals at rate λ.
On the Flow-level Dynamics of a Packet-switched Network
Now, in our model, packets arrive to the network not through an exogenous process, but rather, they are generated by flows.

Robust optimization was introduced in machine learning tasks to handle exogenous noise (e.g., Bhattacharyya et al., 2004; Shivaswamy et al., 2006; Globerson and Roweis, 2006), i.e., the learning algorithm only has access to inaccurate observation of training samples.
