Dream Dictionary
To dream of having flux, or thinking that you are thus afflicted, denotes desperate or fatal illness will overtake you or some member of your family. To see others thus afflicted, implies disappointment in carrying out some enterprise through the neglect of others. Inharmonious states will vex you.

NRC Nuclear Energy Glossary
A term applied to the amount of some type of particle (neutrons, alpha radiation, etc.) or energy (photons, heat, etc.) crossing a unit area per unit time. The unit of flux is the number of particles, energy, etc., per square centimeter per second.

Electronics Terminology
A chemically- or physically-active formulation capable of cleaning oxides and enabling wetting of metals with solder.
Transport of a material or property through an interface. Mathematically, the flux is defined as the surface or volume integral of the dot product of the function and the normal component of the surface or volume. Meteorological examples of fluxes of interest include heat, momentum and moisture fluxes.
Dictionary of Automotive Terms
1. The lines of magnetic force moving through a magnetic field .
2. An ingredient placed on metal being soldered or brazed , to remove and prevent the formation of surface oxidization which would make soldering or brazing difficult.
Flux Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Flux is a simple and ubiquitous concept throughout physics and applied mathematics describing the flow of a physical property in space, frequently also with time variation. It is the basis of the field concept in physics and mathematics. There exist two common usages of the term flux, each with rigorous mathematical frameworks: For transport phenomena, flux is defined as a vector, whereas in electromagnetism, flux is a scalar quantity, as defined by the surface integral. The terms "flux", "current", "flux density", "current density", can sometimes be used interchangeably and ambiguously, though the terms used below match those of the contexts in the literature.
