Anvaya (अन्वय) or Anvayajñāna refers to the “knowledge of conformity” and represents one of the “ten knowledges” (jñāna) as defined in the Dharma-saṃgraha (section 93). The Dharma-samgraha (Dharmasangraha) is an extensive glossary of Buddhist technical terms in Sanskrit (eg., anvaya). The work is attributed to Nagarjuna who lived around the 2nd century A.D.Source: Wisdom Library: Dharma-samgraha

9) (In Nyāya) Statement of the constant and invariable concomitance of the हेतु (hetu) (middle term) and the साध्य (sādhya) (major term) of an Indian syllogism (hetusādhyayorvyāptiranvayaḥ). In the familiar instance पर्वतो वह्निमान् धूमवत्त्वात् (parvato vahnimān dhūmavattvāt) the relation यत्र यत्र धूमस्तत्र तत्र वह्निः (yatra yatra dhūmastatra tatra vahniḥ) (wherever there is smoke there is fire) is called अन्वय (anvaya) or अन्वयव्याप्ति (anvayavyāpti). अन्वय (anvaya), in fact, corresponds to the universal A proposition of European logic 'All A is B.' The 'व्यतिरेकव्याप्ति (vyatirekavyāpti)' means an assertion of the concomitance of the absence of साध्य (sādhya) and the absence of हेतु (hetu) (tadabhāvayoḥ hetvabhāvasādhyābhāvayoḥ vyāptiḥ) and corresponds to the converted A proposition 'All not-B is not-A'; or in Sanskrit यत्र यत्र वह्निर्नास्ति तत्र तत्र धूमोऽपि नास्ति (yatra yatra vahnirnāsti tatra tatra dhūmo'pi nāsti); and a cause or हेतु (hetu) is said to be connected with its effect by अन्वयव्यतिरेकव्याप्ति (anvayavyatirekavyāpti) when both the affirmative and negative relations between the thing to be proved and the cause that proves can be equally asserted; such a Hetu alone makes the argument perfectly sound and incapable of refutation. This process of arriving at the Vyāpti or universal proposition corresponds to the methods of Agreement and Difference in Mill's Logic; साध्ये निश्चितमन्वयेन घटितम् (sādhye niścitamanvayena ghaṭitam) Mu.5.1.
