râžmân-e bolur, ~ boluri

Fr.: système cristallin   

One of seven possible basic crystal types that is defined by the relations between the axis lengths and angles of its unit cell.

de Vaucouleurs system
  راژمان ِ دووکولور   
râžmân-e de Vaucouleurs

Fr.: système de Vaucouleurs   

A widely used scheme for classifying galaxies which is an extension to the → Hubble sequence Hubble sequence. De Vaucouleurs introduced a more elaborate classification system for spiral galaxies (→ spiral galaxy) based on three morphological characteristics:
1) Bars. Galaxies are divided on the basis of the presence or absence of a nuclear → stellar bar. SA denotes spiral galaxies without bars, complementing Hubble's use of SB for → barred spirals. De Vaucouleurs also defined an intermediate class, SAB, containing weakly barred spirals. → Lenticular galaxies are also classified as unbarred (SA0) or barred (SB0), with the notation S0 reserved for those galaxies for which it is impossible to tell if a bar is present or not.
2) Rings. Galaxies possessing ring-like structures are denoted (r), those without rings (s), and transition galaxies (rs).
3) Spiral arms. These are divided into the following subclasses: Sd (SBd), that is diffuse, broken arms made up of individual stellar clusters and nebulae; very faint central → bulge; Sm (SBm): irregular in appearance; no bulge component; and Im, that is highly irregular galaxy.
Galaxies in the classes Sm and Im are termed the → Magellanic spirals and irregulars, respectively. The → Large Magellanic Cloud is of type SBm, while the → Small Magellanic Cloud is an irregular (Im).

de Vaucouleurs radius; → system.

Fr.: système décimal   

same as → decimal number system.

detached system
  راژمان ِ جدا   
râžmân-e jodâ

Fr.: système détaché   

A binary system whose components are not in contact and in which no significant mass exchange is occurring.

P.p. of detach, from O.Fr. destachier (Fr. détacher), from des- "apart," + -tachier (as in atachier "to attach"); → system.

  راژمان ِ افتالی

equator system
  راژمان ِ هموگاری

equatorial coordinate system
  راژمان ِ هماراهای ِ هموگاری   
râžmân-e hamârâhâ-ye hamugâri

Fr.: système de coordonnées équatoriales   

An astronomical → coordinate system for indicating the positions of → celestial objects on the → celestial sphere. The system consists of two components, → right ascension and → declination. Right ascension is the angle between the → vernal equinox and the point where the → hour circle intersects the → celestial equator. The right ascension is always measured eastward from the vernal equinox, in the units of hours, minutes, and seconds. Declination is the angle between the celestial equator and the position of the star measured along the star's hour circle. It is measured in degrees, minutes, and seconds north or south of the celestial equator. By definition, the vernal equinox is located at right ascension 0h and declination 0°. Equatorial coordinates change with time due to the → precession of the Earth's → rotation axis.

equatorial; → coordinate; → system.
