generalize on (someone or something)

To consider a specific situation in broad or vague terms. Quit generalizing on their divorce—none of us know what's really going on there. We shouldn't generalize on a situation as complicated as healthcare.

generalize about (someone or something)

To consider a specific situation in broad or vague terms. Quit generalizing about their divorce—none of us know what's really going on there. We shouldn't generalize about a situation as complicated as healthcare.

generalize from (something)

To reach a conclusion about someone or something despite a lack of supporting evidence or information. I know you don't like Rosemary, but I think you're just generalizing from your limited interactions with her—I've always known her to be a very sweet woman.

generalize about someone or something

 and generalize on someone or something
to interpret someone or something in very general terms. Sometimes it isn't wise to generalize about a complicated issue. She is very complex and it is difficult to generalize on her.

generalize from something

to assume a general pattern in something from specific observances of something. You can hardly generalize from only two instances. You can't generalize anything from the testimony of a single witness!

[5] Let R be a 2-torsion free ring, (f, [partial derivative]) : R [right arrow] R be generalize Jordan derivation, then f (ab + ba) = f (ab) + f (ba) = f (a)b + af (b) + d(a, b) + f (b)a + bf (a) + d(b, a) for all a, b [member of] R.
[5] Let R be a 2-torsion free ring and (f, [partial derivative]) : R [right arrow] R be generalize Jordan derivation the map S: R x R [right arrow] R defined as follows: S(a, b) = f (ab) - (f (a)b + af (b) + [partial derivative] (a, b) for all a, b [member of] R.

Generalize Jordan derivations on a semi prime rings
If R is a commutative 2-torsion free ring and (f, [partial derivative]) : R [right arrow] R be a generalize Jordan derivation then (f, [partial derivative]) is a generalize derivation.
Let R be a non commutative 2-torsion free semi prime ring and (f, [partial derivative]) : R [right arrow] R be a generalize Jordan derivation then (f, [partial derivative]) is a generalize where [partial derivative] is symmetric.
Orthogonal generalize derivations on semi prime rings
In this section, we gave some necessary and sufficient conditions for tow generalized derivation of type (2), to be orthogonal and also we show that the image of two orthogonal generalize derivations are different from each other except for both are is zero.
For any generalize derivation (f, [[partial derivative].sub.1]) on a ring R there exist tow orthogonal generalize derivation (h, [[partial derivative].sub.1]), (g, [[partial derivative].sub.2]) on S = R [direct sum] R such that h(x,y) = (f (x), 0), g(x,y) = (0,f (y)) for all x, y [member of] R.
Thus (h, [partial derivative]) is a generalize derivation on S.
