Abstract syntax Abstract syntaxes are classified as first-order abstract syntax (FOAS), if the structure is abstract but names (identifiers) are still concrete (and thus requires name resolution), and "higher-order abstract syntax," if the names themselves are abstract.
Abstract object theory Abstract object theory, also known as abstract theory, is a branch of metaphysics regarding abstract objects. Originally devised by metaphysicist Edward Zalta in 1999, the theory was an expansion of mathematical Platonism. One who studies abstract object theory is called an "abstract theorist".
Abstract painting (Pasmore) Abstract painting is an abstract oil painting, by Victor Pasmore, from 1998.
Abstract comics A collection of abstract comics was brought together in the book "Abstract Comics: The Anthology" edited by Andrei Molotiu. The Danish publisher Fahrenheit published "Nautilus" by Molotiu and "Reykjavik" by Henrik Rehr, both abstract graphic novels, in 2009. Creators of abstract comics included in Molotiu's anthology include Robert Crumb, Andrei Molotiu, Patrick McDonnell, Mark Badger, Henrik Rehr, Benoit Joly and Gary Panter.
Abstract nonsense In mathematics, abstract nonsense, general abstract nonsense, and general nonsense are terms used by mathematicians to describe abstract methods related to category theory and homological algebra. More generally, “abstract nonsense” may refer to a proof that relies on category theoretic methods, or even to the study of category theory itself.
Abstract type In programming languages, an abstract type is a type in a nominative type system that cannot be instantiated directly; a type that is not abstract – which "can" be instantiated – is called a "concrete type". Every instance of an abstract type is an instance of some concrete subtype. Abstract types are also known as "existential types".
Abstract (law) The Abstract of Title, used in real estate transactions, is the more common form of abstract. An abstract of title lists all the owners of a piece of land, a house, or a building before it came into possession of the present owner. The abstract also records all deeds, wills, mortgages, and other documents that affect ownership of the property. An abstract describes a chain of transfers from owner to owner and any agreements by former owners that are binding on later owners.
Abstract type Often, abstract types will have one or more implementations provided separately, for example, in the form of concrete subtypes that "can" be instantiated. In object-oriented programming, an abstract class may include "abstract methods" or "abstract properties" that are shared by its subclasses. Other names for language features that are (or may be) used to implement abstract types include "traits", "mixins", "flavors", "roles", or "type classes".

American Abstract Artists During the early 1940s the New York School gained momentum and throughout the mid-1940s and 1950s Abstract Expressionism dominated the American avant-garde. American Abstract Artists continued its mandate as an advocate for abstract art.
Abstract strategy game Traditional abstract strategy games are often treated as a separate game category, hence the term 'abstract games' is often used for competitions that exclude them and can be thought of as referring to "modern" abstract strategy games. Two examples are the IAGO World Tour (2007–2010) and the Abstract Games World Championship held annually since 2008 as part of the Mind Sports Olympiad.
Abstract and concrete Abstract and concrete () are classifications that denote whether a term describes an object with a physical referent or one with no physical referents. They are most commonly used in philosophy and semantics. Abstract objects are sometimes called abstracta (sing. abstractum) and concrete objects are sometimes called "concreta" (sing. "concretum"). An abstract object is an object which does not exist at any particular time or place, but rather exists as a type of thing, "i.e.", an idea, or abstraction. The term 'abstract object' is said to have been coined by Willard Van Orman Quine. The study of abstract objects is called abstract object theory.
American Abstract Artists American Abstract Artists (AAA) was formed in 1936 in New York City, to promote and foster public understanding of abstract art. American Abstract Artists exhibitions, publications, and lectures helped to establish the organization as a major forum for the exchange and discussion of ideas, and for presenting abstract art to a broader public. The American Abstract Artists group contributed to the development and acceptance of abstract art in the United States and has a historic role in its avant-garde. It is one of the few artists’ organizations to survive from the Great Depression and continue into the 21st century.
Class (computer programming) In a language that supports inheritance, an abstract class, or "abstract base class" (ABC), is a class that cannot be instantiated because it is either labeled as abstract or it simply specifies abstract methods (or "virtual methods"). An abstract class may provide implementations of some methods, and may also specify virtual methods via signatures that are to be implemented by direct or indirect descendants of the abstract class. Before a class derived from an abstract class can be instantiated, all abstract methods of its parent classes must be implemented by some class in the derivation chain.
