Styling[edit] According to The Chicago Manual of Style, familiar Latin phrases that are listed in Merriam-Webster, such as "ad hoc", should not be italicized.[3][4]

Hypothesis[edit] Main article: Ad hoc hypothesis In science and philosophy, ad hoc means the addition of extraneous hypotheses to a theory to save it from being falsified. Ad hoc hypotheses compensate for anomalies not anticipated by the theory in its unmodified form. Scientists are often skeptical of scientific theories that rely on frequent, unsupported adjustments to sustain them.

In the military[edit] In the military, ad hoc units are created during unpredictable situations, when the cooperation between different units is suddenly needed for fast action.

Networking[edit] Main article: Wireless ad hoc network The term ad hoc networking typically refers to a system of network elements that combine to form a network requiring little or no planning.
