conservation law parity conjugation(related)

The property of a physical system that entails how the system would behave if the coordinate system were reversed, each dimension changing sign from x, y, z to −x, −y, −z. If a system behaves in the same way when the coordinate system is reversed, then it is said to have even parity ; if it does not, it is said to have odd parity. For bosons, the antiparticle of any given particle has the same parity, odd or even, as that particle. For fermions, the antiparticle has the opposite parity.

check bit

(computer science) a bit that is used in an error detection procedure in which a 0 or 1 is added to each group of bits so that it will have either an odd number of 1's or an even number of 1's; e.g., if the parity is odd then any group of bits that arrives with an even number of 1's must contain an error
