Usage

In literature:

The decomposition of a beam of light can be noticed by exposing it to a prism.
"American Handbook of the Daguerrotype" by Samuel D. Humphrey
What is wanted is a light compost, consisting almost wholly of vegetable matter in a more or less advanced state of decomposition.
"The Culture of Vegetables and Flowers From Seeds and Roots, 16th Edition" by Sutton and Sons
Solar light also effects the decomposition of the nitrite-of-amyl vapour.
"Fragments of science, V. 1-2" by John Tyndall
The action of light is to bring about or to assist in the decomposition of the pigment.
"The Painter in Oil" by Daniel Burleigh Parkhurst

In science:

Reduced chi-squared for the least-squares decomposition of line profiles into Gaussian components, in which reference-epoch velocities, secular drifts, time-varying widths, and light curves are simultaneously fit for each Gaussian component using a time-series of spectra.
Discovery of Candidate H$_2$O Disk Masers in AGN and Estimations of Centripetal Accelerations
In any case, in the light of (1) and (2), obtaining an adequate minimal M -decomposition of the total tra jectory entropy production constitutes the cornerstone towards the derivation of generalized FTs for non-equilibrium systems.
Unifying approach for fluctuation theorems from joint probability distributions
We performed Fourier decomposition of the light curves for a subset of RR Lyrae stars and used the Fourier parameters to estimate the fundamental physical parameters of the stars using relations available in the literature.
CCD time-series photometry of the globular cluster NGC 6981: Variable star census and physical parameter estimates
With this motivation, we have performed a Fourier decomposition of the V filter light curves of the RR Lyrae stars in NGC 6981 for which we have data and a reliable period estimate (i.e. 28 RR0 and 5 RR1 type variables).
CCD time-series photometry of the globular cluster NGC 6981: Variable star census and physical parameter estimates
Fe/H], absolute magnitudes MV , effective temperatures Teff , masses M and radii R of the RR Lyrae stars in globular clusters from the fit parameters derived fr om the Fourier decomposition of the V light curves.
