Same as → Jeans length.

Jeans; → scale.

jelly
  ژله   
želé (#)

Fr.: gelée   

1) A soft somewhat elastic food product made usually with gelatin or pectin; especially, a fruit product made by boiling sugar and the juice of fruit.
2) A substance resembling jelly in consistency (Merriam-Webster.com).

M.E. gely, from O.Fr. gelee "a jelly," from L. gelare "to freeze, congeal, stiffen," from PIE *gel- "cold; to freeze."

Želeh, loan from Fr., as above.

jellyfish
  مدوسا، عروس ِ دریایی   
medusâ, arus-e daryâyi

Fr.: méduse   

Any of various marine coelenterates of a soft, gelatinous structure, especially one with an umbrella like body and long, trailing tentacles; medusa (dictionary.com).

jelly; → fish.

Medusâ, from Gk. Medousa, literally "guardian," from medein "to protect, rule over."

jellyfish galaxy
  کهکشان ِ مدوسا   
kahkešên-e medusâ

Fr.: galaxie méduse   

A type of galaxy exhibiting "tentacles" (tails) of material that appear to be stripped from the main body of the galaxy, making it resemble a jellyfish. Such type of galaxies occur in → galaxy clusters and are produced by a process called → ram pressure stripping. The mutual → gravitational attraction between galaxies causes them to fall at high speed into the clusters, where they encounter a hot → intracluster medium (ICM) with dense gas. The falling galaxy feels a powerful wind, forcing tails of gas out of the galaxy's disk and triggering → starbursts within it. Jellyfish galaxies have mainly been observed in nearby clusters (e.g., Virgo, Coma, A1367, A3627, Shapley). A few examples have been identified in clusters at → redshifts z ~ 0.2-0.4, and there is accumulating evidence for a correlation between the efficiency of the stripping phenomenon and the presence of shocks and strong gradients in the X-ray → intergalactic medium (Poggianti et al., 2016, AJ 151, 78).

jellyfish; → galaxy.

jet
  ۱، ۲، ۳) اِشان، شان؛ ۴) جت   
1, 2, 3) ešân, šân; 4) jet

Fr.: jet   

1) A stream of a liquid, gas, or small solid particles forcefully shooting forth from a nozzle, orifice, etc.
2) Fountain-like formations of gas and/or dust gushing out from compact regions of some astronomical objects. → astrophysical jets.
3) Meteo.: A common abbreviation for → jet stream.
4) Shortened of → jet plane.

Jet, from M.Fr. jeter "to throw," from V.L. *jectare, alter. of L. jactare, from jac- "throw" + -t- frequentative suffix + -are infinitive suffix; PIE base *ye- "to do" (cf. Gk. hienai "to send, throw;" Hittite ijami "I make").

Ešân, from ešândan, → eject; šân contraction of ešân.

jet; → engine.

jet launching
  پرتاب ِ شان   
partâb-e šân

Fr.: lancement de jet   

The mechanism whereby → astrophysical jets are thrown out of → accretion disks . Observed correlations between emission from the accretion disk and from the jet provide evidence that the jets are launched from the disks directly. As the energy emitted from the jets is a → synchrotron radiation, the presence of a → magnetic field is deduced for the ejection. The most promising model for such "accretion-ejection" structures is based on a scenario where a large-scale magnetic field threads an accretion disk. This model, using a → magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) approach, shows that the magnetic field can azimuthally brake the matter inside the disk (carrying off → angular momentum allowing accretion) and accelerate matter above the disk surface. The → collimation of the flow is achieved via → magnetic tension due to the presence of a → toroidal component of the magnetic field. The magnetic field provides an effective alternative to the radially outward transport of disk angular momentum by → viscosity. The interaction of the magnetic structure with the disk plasma can create a MHD → Poynting flux leaving the disk along the magnetic surface. This energy flux can then be converted into → kinetic energy of the matter within the jet. Because the → mass density in the jet is smaller than in the disk, it is thereby possible to reach high → terminal velocities for a given amount of angular momentum removed from the disk (Casse & Keppens, 2002, ApJ 581, 988, and references therein).

jet; → launch; → -ing.

jet plane
  جت، هواپیما‌ی ِ ~   
jet (#), havâpeymâ-ye ~ (#)

Fr.: avion à réaction

jet; plane, short for airplane, from Fr. aeroplane, from aero-, → air, + plane feminine of plan "flat, level," from L. planus, perhaps by association with forme plane; apparently coined and first used by Fr. sculptor and inventor Joseph Pline in 1855.

jet; havâpeymâ "airplane," from havâ, → air, + peymâ "travelling; traveller," from peymudan, peymâyidan "to travel, traverse, pass over," from Mid.Pers. patmudan, paymudan "to measure (against)," from *pati-māya-. The first element *pati- "against, back" (cf. Mod.Pers. pâd- "against, contrary to;" Mid.Pers. pât-; O.Pers. paity "agaist, back, opposite to, toward, face to face, in front of;" Av. paiti; Skt. práti "toward, against, again, back, in return, opposite;" Pali pati-; Gk. proti, pros "face to face with, toward, in addition to, near;" PIE *proti). The second element from *mā- "to measure;" O.Pers./Av. mā(y)- "to measure;" cf. Skt. mati "measures," matra- "measure;" Gk. metron "measure;" L. metrum; PIE base *me- "to measure." Apart from peymâ, several other terms in Mod.Pers. are related to this second element, which occurs also as mun, mân, man, mâ, mu, and mây: pirâmun "perimeter," âzmun, âzmây- "test, trial," peymân "measuring, agreement," peymâné "a measure; a cup, bowl," man "a measure weighing forty seers)," nemudan, ne- "to show, display," âdan, âmây- "to prepare."

  جَست-و-جَه   
jastojah

Fr.: scintillement, vacillement   

Short term random variations either in amplitude or phase of a radio signal.

Jitter, may be variant of chitter "tremble, shiver," from M.E. chiteren "to twitter, chatter."

Jastojah, from jast and jah past and present stems of jahidan "to jump, leap, spring forward; to shake or tremble," from Mid.Pers. jastan, jahidan "to jump," figuratively "to happen, occur;" Av. yaēš-, yas- "to boil;" cf. Skt. yas-, yásyati "to boil, to heat; to make effort" + -o- euphonic infix, on the model of kandokâv, oftoxiz, and so on.

jitter mode
  مد ِ جَست-و-جَه   
mod-e jastojah

Fr.:   

A mode of observation in which a series of short exposures are used to enhance the final image quality through appropriate data processing. The first exposure is assumed to be centered on the point of interest; the following ones are slightly offset from the first position with separations not larger than a reasonably small fraction of the detector size. The offsets should be optimally distributed on the sky in order to maximize the chances of being able to filter out the sky background.

jitter; → mode.

jj coupling
  جفتش ِ jj، جفسری ِ ~   
jofteš-e jj, jafsari-ye ~

Fr.: couplage jj   

A coupling scheme of electronic → spin angular momenta and → orbital angular momenta for heavy atoms (generally Z > 30), where the spin and orbital angular momenta of individual electrons couple strongly, and therefore the → LS coupling scheme does not apply. The coupling between spin and orbital angular momentum of each electron is much stronger than the coupling between different electrons. Therefore, the total angular momentum, ji, for the i-th electron is obtained by combining li and si and then coupling these j's together to give the total angular momentum J = Σi ji. In the jj coupling scheme the total orbital angular momentum quantum number, L, and the total spin angular momentum number, S, are not specified.

j referring to the symbol of the total angular momentum for individual electrons; → coupling.

More generally, an intrinsic noise generated by thermal agitation of electrons by all bodies whose temperature is above 0 K. Also called → thermal noise, Johnson noise, or Nyquist noise.

Named after John Bertrand Johnson (1887-1970) and Harry Nyquist (1889-1976) Swedish-born American engineers and physicists, who did important work on thermal noise and information theory. → noise.

Jordan-Brans-Dicke theory
  نگره‌ی ِ یوردان-برانز-دایک   
negare-ye Jordan-Brans-Dicke

Fr.: théorie de Jordan-Brans-Dicke   

A relativistic theory of gravitation which involves a → scalar field in addition to the → metric (→ tensor field) used in rarr; general relativity. It obeys the → equivalence principle, but tries at the same time to comply with → Mach's principle owing to possible spatial and temporal variations of the → gravitational constant, which is inversely proportional to the scalar field. The theory uses a new dimensionless parameter to determine the discrepancy between its predictions and those of general relativity. So far there is no firm indication of its validity. Same as → scalar-tensor theory.

Named after the creators, Carl Brans (1935-) and Robert Dicke (1916-1997), who presented the theory in 1961, based on the initial work of Pascual Jordan (1902-1980); → theory.
