conformal hamdis Fr.: conforme Math.: Of, pertaining to, or specifying a mapping of a surface upon another surface so that all angles between intersecting curves remain unchanged. |
conformal compactification hampakâneš-e hamdi Fr.: compactification conforme A mapping of an infinite → space-time onto a finite one that may make the far away parts of the former accessible to study. The technique invented by Penrose defines an equivalence class of → metrics, g_{ab} being equivalent to ĝ_{ab} = Ω^{2}g_{ab}, where Ω is a positive scalar function of the space-time that modifies the distance scale making the asymptotics of the physical metric accessible to study. → conformal; → compactification. |
conformal mapping hamtâyeš-e hamdis Fr.: application conforme A continuous mapping u = f(x) of a domain D in an n-dimensional Euclidean space (n≥ 2) into the n-dimensional Euclidean space is called conformal at a point x_{0}∈ D if it has the properties of constancy of dilation and preservation of angles at this point. |
