BIPARTITE (from the Lat. bi-, two, and partire, to divide). In a general sense, the word means having two corresponding parts or in duplicate. In geometry, a bipartite curve consists of two distinct branches (see Parabola, figs. 3, 5). In botany, the word is applied to leaves divided into two parts near the base.
A bipartient factor is a number whose square exactly divides another number. In zoology, the Bipartiti was a name given by P. A. Latreille to a group of carnivorous Coleoptera.
