Chandrasekhar limit

Named after Subrahmayan Chandrasekhar (1910-1995), Indian-born American astrophysicist who, with William A. Fowler, won the 1983 Nobel Prize for Physics for his research on white dwarfs; → limit.

2b) To transform or convert.
3) To substitute another or others for; exchange for something else, usually of the same kind.
4) The act of changing; alteration or variation of any kind. → adiabatic change, → canonical change, → polytropic change, → secular change, → exchange.

M.E., from O.Fr. changier, from L.L. cambiare, from L. cambire "to exchange, barter," of Celtic origin, cf. Breton kamm "curved, bent;" Gk. kampe "a corner, a joint;" L. campus "a field;" Lith. kampus "corner;" PIE *kamb- "to bend, crook."

chaos
  ۱) ورشون؛ ۲) شیوار   
1) varšun; 2) šivâr

Fr.: chaos   

1a) General: A condition or place of great disorder or confusion.
1b) Math., Physics: Highly disordered evolution of some → dynamical systems which is sensitively dependent on → initial conditions. In a → chaotic system the → aperiodic, → nonlinear evolution grows → exponentially with time. Ordinary chaos is not → turbulence, but turbulence is always chaotic.
2) In → astrogeology, a distinctive area of fractured terrain on a planet or satellite, e.g. Gorgonum Chaos located in the southern hemisphere of Mars.

Chaos, in Gk. mythology and cosmology, the void existing at the beginning of the creation, as evoked in Hesiod's (c. 850 B.C.) Theogony. However, the meaning of chaos, used by Hesiod, is a matter of debate. Some have interpreted it as the primeval absence of order (hence → confusion). Subsequently, the Roman writer Ovid (43 BC-17? AD) described Chaos in his Metamorphoses as an unordered and formless primordial mass, and opposed Chaos to Cosmos "the ordered universe."

Chaos "gaping void," from L. chaos, from Gk. khaos "abyss, that which gapes wide open, is vast and empty," from *khnwos, from PIE base *gheu-, *gh(e)i- "to gape."

1) Varšun, from Tabari varâšun, Gilaki varâšin, daršin, uršin all meaning "confused, unordered, untidy," cf. Qomi šur-o-šin "chaos, confusion". The stem šun-/šin- is related to Mod.Pers. šân- in afšândan, šândan "to disperse, scatter, stew" (Mid.Pers. afšândan "to spread, scatter"), Gilaki šondan "to disperse," Hamadani šuândan "to derange, disorder," Laki veršânâ "to disperse, scatter," Šuštari šayn "to shake, agitate," Kermâni owšin "a winnowing fork to separate chaff from the grain," Laki šovâné "scattered household furniture," Tabari timšan "sowing seeds;" all ultimately from Proto-Ir. *šan- "to shake;" see also → confuse. The prefix var-, variant bar- "up, over" (as well as dar- "in"), denotes "disorder, confusion" as in darham barham "upside-down, helter-skelter".
2) Šivâr "depression between two terrains," from Tabari; probably a variant of šiyâr, → groove.

Chaplygin gas
  گاز ِ چاپلیگین   
gâz-e Chaplygin

Fr.: gaz de Tchaplyguin

In its simplest form, the Chaplygin gas has the → equation of statep = - A/ρ, where p and ρ denote the → pressure and → energy density, respectively, and A is a positive model parameter. This equation was introduced by Chaplygin (1904, Sci. Mem. Moscow Univ. Math., 21) to study the lifting force on a plane wing in aerodynamics.

Named after Sergey Chaplygin (1869-1942), Russian physicist; → gas.

Chappuis band
  باند ِ شپویی   
bând-e Chappuis
