Fluoride , is an inorganic, monatomic anion of fluorine with the chemical formula . Fluoride is the simplest anion of fluorine. Its salts and minerals are important chemical reagents and industrial chemicals, mainly used in the production of hydrogen fluoride for fluorocarbons. In terms of charge and size, the fluoride ion resembles the hydroxide ion. Fluoride ions occur on earth in several minerals, particularly fluorite, but are only present in trace quantities in water. Fluoride contributes a distinctive bitter taste. It contributes no color to fluoride salts.

The Fourier transform performs a decomposition of a function of into its sinusoidal components. As typically phrased in the language of signal processing, the transformation decomposes a signal – some given function of time – into the frequencies that make up the signal, akin to how a musical chord can be expressed as combination of its constituent notes. While the Fourier transform is not limited to functions of time in the literal sense, it is conventional to call the domain of the original function the time domain and the domain of the transformed function the frequency domain.

Phi (uppercase Φ, lowercase or ; , pheî, ; modern , fi, ; English: ) is the 21st letter of the Greek alphabet. In Ancient Greek, it represented an aspirated voiceless bilabial plosive , which was the origin of its usual romanization as "ph". In modern Greek, it represents a voiceless labiodental fricative  and is correspondingly romanized as "f". Its origin is uncertain but it may be that phi originated as the letter qoppa and initially represented the sound before shifting to Classical Greek . In traditional Greek numerals, phi has a value of 500 or . The Cyrillic letter Ef (Ф, ф) descends from phi.

    The fraction of a dose which is absorbed and enters the systemic circulation following administration of a drug by any route other than the intravenous route; the availability of drug to tissues of the body, generally. When the total clearance and the dose of drug administered are known, F can be determined from the relationship: (AUC x ClT)/D = F. When identical doses of a drug have been
    given by the intravenous and by some other route (x), and the AUCs have been determined, the availability of the drug after administration by route X can be determined: F=AUCx/AUCiv. The amount of free drug recovered in the urine (AU) after administration of identical doses given intravenously and by route X can also be used to determine availability:
    Cf. Bioavailability, First Pass Effect, AUC
    The fraction of C0 remaining at some specified time after drug administration; more generally, the fraction of C, or AB, remaining after some specified time interval. For first-order, single compartment systems (i.e. those yielding a single straight line when log C is plotted against t), f can be determined from the relationship: log C = log C0 - b t. When t is the time after drug administration, or
    the interval between two administrations, and t1/2 is the elimination half-life of the drug, f is 0.5 raised to a power which is the ratio of the time interval to the elimination half-life, i.e., 0.5t/t1/2.
