Intermediate, from M.L. intermediatus "lying between," from L. intermedius "that which is between," from → inter- "between" + medius "located in the middle;" PIE root *medhyo- "middle;" cf. Pers. miyân, as below; Av. maidiia-, Skt. mádhya-; Gk. medos, messos "middle;"
Miyâni, adj. of miyân "within, between, center," from
Mid.Pers. mayân "middle; among, between," Av. maidiia- "middle, the middle,"

Fr.: fréquence intermédiare

Fr.: infrarouge moyen
intermediate-mass black hole (IMBH)
siyah câl-e miyân jerm
Fr.: trou noir de masse intermédiaire
A → black hole with a mass in the range 102-104 solar masses. IMBHs may form as the result of multiple → mergers of smaller objects in the centers of dense stellar clusters in the present universe, assuming → mass loss from → stellar winds is not significant. They may also arise from the evolution of → very massive stars early in the history of the Universe, forming black hole "seeds" in the centers of massive halos (the precursors of the galaxies we see today) early in the history of the Universe, to redshifts z > 10. Currently the best observational evidence for IMBHs comes from models of ultraluminous X-ray sources (See, e.g., J. M. Centrella et al. 2010, astro-ph/1010.5260).
Fr.: protoétoile de masse intermédiare
A protostar that evolves into an → intermediate-mass star.
Fr.: étoile de masse intermédiare
A star whose mass lies in the range about 2 to 8 → solar masses approximately.
