mass resolution - the mass (actually, m/z) difference, Dmx that exists between two adjacent peaks in a mass spectrum that are of equal size and shape (Gaussian, Lorentzian, triangular) with a specified amount of overlap, where the subscript "x" denotes the overlap criterion  (10% valley, Full Width at Half Height [FWHH], etc.)
