Thaumaturgy is the practice or study of magical and supernatural effects.1 The term is sometimes used to describe a magical effect or object affected by magic, such as a construct or metamagical effect.23

On Golarion

Sleepless detectives are skilled in forensic thaumaturgy, or the ability to sense magical effects that have recently expired.4

One of the theoretical bases of Shory flying city magic, also known as Aeromantic Infadibulum, is the Azlanti practice of electro-thaumaturgy.5

Extremely powerful occultists who take on the mythic path of the archmage are often called thaumaturges.6
