  پَروز ِ ناتاشتیگی ِ هایزنبرگ   
parvaz-e nâtâštigi-ye Heisenberg

Fr.: principe d'incertitude de Heisenberg   

The uncertainty in the measurement of the position and momentum of an elementary particle. The more precisely one quantity is known, the less certain the precision of the other. A similarly linked pair of quantities is the time and energy content in a volume of space.

Named after Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976), the German physicist who in 1927 derived the uncertainty principle. In 1932 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics; uncertainty, from → un- "not" + → certainty; → principle.

heliacal
  هورانه   
hurâné

Fr.: héliaque   

Of or near the → Sun, especially rising and setting with the Sun. → heliacal rising, → heliacal setting.

Heliacal "pertaining to the sun," from Gk. heliakos "of the sun," from helios, → sun; cognate with Pers. hur, as below.

Hurâné "sunlike," since the star rises in the morning like the Sun, from hur "sun", variant xor; Mid.Pers. xvar "sun;" Av. hû-, hvar- "sun;" Skt. surya-; L. sol; O.H.G. sunna; Ger. Sonne; E. sun; PIE *sawel- "sun" + -âné similarity suffix.

heliacal rising
  بر‌آیش ِ هورانه   
barâyeš-e hurâné

Fr.: lever héliaque   

The first appearance of a star following a period of invisibility due to its conjunction with the Sun. → heliacal rising of Sirius.

heliacal; → rising.

heliacal rising of Sirius
  بر‌آیش ِ هورانه‌ی ِ تیشتر   
barâyeš-e hurâne-ye Tištar

Fr.: lever héliaque de Sirius   

The first rising of → Sirius at dawn shortly before → sunrise. The heliacal rising of Sirius played a significant role in ancient Egypt by heralding the annual flooding of the Nile. The event took place some 70 days after the star had been seen for the last time in the western horizon at sunset. The heliacal rising of Sirius and its association with the rebirth of the Nile was so important that it marked the start of the Egyptian calendar year. At the time, the heliacal rising occurred in early July, as seen from the ancient capital of Memphis. But due to the → precession of the equinoxes the star now reappears in early August in Egypt. The date depends on the latitude (assuming transparent skies), being later for higher latitudes. For latitude 48° it occurs on about August 19.

heliacal; → rising; → Sirius.

heliacal setting
  فروشد ِ هورانه   
forušod-e hurâné

Fr.: coucher héliaque   

The last visible setting of a star below the western horizon just after sunset entering into a conjunction with the Sun.

heliacal; → setting.

helicity
  پیچاری

Fr.: hélicité   

1) In particle physics, the projection of the spin of an elementary particle on the direction of momentum.
2) In fluid mechanics, → kinetic helicity.
3) In magnetohydrodynamics, → magnetic helicity.

From → helix + → -ity.

helio-
  هور-، خور-، خورشید-   
hur- (#), xor- (#), xoršid- (#)

Fr.: hélio-   

A combining form of Gk. helios "sun."

Helio-, combining form of from Gk. helios "sun;" cognate with Persian hur "sun", variant xor and xoršid (Av. hvarə-xšaēta- "shining sun"); Mid.Pers. xvar "sun;" Av. hû-, hvar- "sun;" Skt. surya-; L. sol; O.H.G. sunna; Ger. Sonne; E. sun; PIE *sawel- "sun."

  گاهداد ِ ژولی‌ین ِ هورمرکزی   
gâhdâd-e žulian-e hurmarkazi

Fr.: date julienne héliocentrique   

The → Julian Date referenced to the center of the → Sun. Since the Earth revolves around the Sun, and since light travels at a finite speed, observations of a given object taken at different positions in the Earth's orbit are not equivalent, and so a correction for Earth's orbit around the Sun is required. Left uncorrected, the time of an observational event measured by Earth clocks will vary by 16.6 minute over the course of a year. If not properly accounted for, this can lead to a spurious signal in a → periodogram.

heliocentric; → Julian Date.

heliocentric parallax
  دیدگشت ِ هورمرکزی   
didgašt-e hurmarkazi

Fr.: parallaxe héliocentrique   

The parallax of a celestial body when viewed from two points in the Earth's orbit around the Sun. More specifically, the angular difference in a celestial object's position as seen from the center of the Sun and the center of the Earth. Also called → annual parallax.

heliocentric; → parallax.

heliocentric system
  راژمان ِ هورمرکزی   
râžmân-e hurmarkazi

Fr.: système héliocentrique
