In literature:

Further, we know the truth 'I am acquainted with this sense-datum'.
"The Problems of Philosophy" by Bertrand Russell
Direction is a primary datum of sense.
"Visual Illusions" by Matthew Luckiesh
Verification consists always in the occurrence of an expected sense-datum.
"Our Knowledge of the External World as a Field for Scientific Method in Philosophy" by Bertrand Russell
Only in the physical sense of physical bodies that to the senses are separate is individuality an original datum.
"Reconstruction in Philosophy" by John Dewey
It is assumed, that is, that the other term of a proposition in which a sense datum is one term must be the thing which produced it.
"Essays in Experimental Logic" by John Dewey

In science:

In such a sense, the pair (|Tl=a | → M , Div(T )), or shortly, (T , Div(T )), encodes the datum of the triangulation |Tl=a | → M and of a corresponding set of curvature assignments {q(k)} on the vertices {σ0 (i)}N0 (T ) .

It follows that S(π) inherits a canonical basis and a cell datum (in the sense of Graham and Lehrer [GL]) from ˙U.
Presenting generalized q-Schur algebras
It follows that the basis ˙B = {bλ S,T } is a cellular basis for the algebra ˙U; more precisely, the datum (X + , M , b, ι) is a cell datum for ˙U, in the sense of Graham and Lehrer [GL] (with respect to the opposite partial order on X + ).
Presenting generalized q-Schur algebras
We note that this cell datum is of profinite type, in the sense of [RG, 2.1.2]; hence the algebra ˙U can be completed to a procellular algebra bU.

Thus, the map (φ0 , π0) → φt assigns to each initial datum pair a unique solution with sensible properties, and thus gives rise to a reasonable prescription in the sense defined by Wald and Ishibashi .
