Default why no definite article?

in oxford dictionaries, I also find something:

for understanding of sth & for use of sth

I wonder why the English don't say:

for the understanding of sth & for the use of sth

could you answer my question?

Default Re: why no definite article?

It's not really possible to answer your question without seeing the expression in context. Can you cite the full sentences?
