The differential value of a property, contingent
upon approaching a known value of a related
condition from a higher or lower level. A material
such as paper, for example, that is to be
conditioned at 50% relative humidity, will contain
more moisture when this level is approached from
above 50% than when approached from below.
Hysteresis has a considerable influence in
governing the dimensional stability of paper.
