In formal language theory in computer science, "scattered context grammars" are used to mathematically formalize scattered information processing or the processing of broadly scattered pieces of mutually related information throughout various computer systems. Summarizing and synthesizing the literature on this topic, itself somewhat scattered, Meduna (computer science, Brno U. of Technology, Czech Republic) and Techet (PhD, computer science, Brno U. of Technology) provide a unified treatment of scattered context grammars and their languages from a theoretical point of view. They also discuss the practical issues of how to process scattered information by these grammars in linguistics, as well as in a few other application areas. Their treatment combines rigorous mathematical formalisms with intuitive explanations.
