Fr.: colloque   

1) An informal meeting for the exchange of views.
2) A usually academic seminar on a broad field of study, usually led by a different lecturer at each meeting.

From L. colloquium "conference, conversation," from → com- "together" + loqui "to speak".

From Lori hacâyé "conversation among two or more people," maybe from Av. ušyāi- "to speak, talk," from vak- "to speak," Skt. vacas "speech, word," cognate with L. vox "voice," vocare "to call," Gk. ops "voice," epos "song;" PIE root *wek- "to speak".

Fr.: couleur   

1) A visual sensation produced in the brain when the eye views various wavelengths or frequencies of light.
2) Short for → color index.
3) A property of → quarks required to distinguish the three basic quarks of which → baryons are composed. In all → hadrons, the quarks (red, green, blue) are combined in such a way as to yield a colorless overall particle.

From M.E. colour, from O.Fr. colur, from L. color "color, hue," from Old L. colos "a covering," from PIE *kel-os- "that which covers," from *kel- "to cover, conceal."

Rang, from Mid.Pers. rang "color" (abrang "splendor"), related to Mod.Pers. razidan "to color," raxš "a mixture of red and white," also the name of Rostam's horse (loan from Sogd.?), awrang "glory, beauty, throne;" Kurd. raš "black;" cf. Skt. raj- "to color, to become red;" Gk. rezein "to color;" PIE base *(s)reg- "to color, paint" (Cheung 2007).

color excess
  فزونی ِ رنگ   
fozuni-ye rang,

Fr.: excès de couleur   

The difference between the observed → color index of a star and the intrinsic color index corresponding to its → spectral type. It indicates the modification brought to a color index by the → interstellar absorption.

color; excess, M.E., from O.Fr., from L. excessus "departure, going beyond," p.p. excedere "to depart, go beyond," from → ex- "out" + cedere "to go, yield."

Fozuni, from afzuni "excess," afzuni kardan "to exceed bounds," → add; → color.

color index
  دیشن ِ رنگ   
dišan-e rang

Fr.: indice de couleur   

The difference between the → apparent magnitude of a star measured at one standard wavelength and the apparent magnitude at another longer, standard wavelength, allowing the quantitative measure of a star's color.

color; → index.

color temperature
  دمای ِ رنگ   
damâ-ye rang

Fr.: température de couleur   

The temperature of that black-body which has the same spectral energy distribution in a limited spectral region, as the object under study has.

color; → temperature.

color transformation
  ترادیس ِ رنگ   
tarâdis-e rang

Fr.: transformation de couleur   

Empirical mathematical transformation applied to the observed magnitudes in order to convert them into a standard system, or into a different system.

color; → transformation.

color-color diagram
  نمودار ِ رنگ-رنگ   
nemudâr-e rang-rang (#)

Fr.: diagramme couleur-couleur   

A diagram based on two photometric colors usually representing the same class of astronomical objects.

color; → diagram.

color-color plot
  نمودار ِ رنگ-رنگ   
nemudâr-e rang-rang (#)

Fr.: diagramme couleur-couleur   

Fr.: diagramme couleur-couleur

Same as → color-color diagram.

color-luminosity diagram
  نمودار ِ رنگ-تابندگی   
nemudâr-e rang-tâbandegi

Fr.: diagramme couleur-luminosité   

A form of → Hertzsprung-Russell diagram in which the luminosity is the vertical axis and the → color index the horizontal axis.

color; → luminosity, → diagram.

color-magnitude diagram
  نمودار ِ رنگ-برز   
nemudâr-e rang-borz

Fr.: diagramme couleur-magnitude   

A form of → Hertzsprung-Russell diagram in which the visual absolute magnitude Mv is the vertical axis and the → color index the horizontal axis.

color; → magnitude, → diagram.

  رنگ سنجی   
rangsanji (#)

Fr.: colorimétrie   

The measurement and definition of unknown colors in terms of standard colors.

color; → -metry.

Kabutar (#)

Fr.: Colombe   

The Dove. A small → constellation in the Southern Hemisphere just south to → Canis Major and → Lepus. Abbreviation: Col; genitive: Columbae.

L. columba "dove."

Kabutar "pigeon," Mid.Pers. kabôtar, from kabôd "grey-blue; pigeon," cf. Skt. kapota- "a dove, pigeon; the grey color of a pigeon."

Either of two great circles of the celestial sphere that passes through the poles and meets the ecliptic at either the solstice points (the solstitial colure) or the equinox points (the equinoctial colure).

From L. colurus, from Gk. kolouros "dock-tailed," from kol(os) "docked" + -ouros "-tailed," from oura "tail;" so called because the lower part is permanently hidden beneath the horizon.

Koldom, from Mod.Pers. kol "docked, short," most probably cognate with the Gk. term, as above, + dom(b) "tail," Av. duma- "tail." Recorded in classical dictionaries, kol has several variants in a large number of dialects: kola, kalta, kel, kelma, koc, kall, kor, kul in Gilaki, Tâleši, Lori, Malâyeri, Hamedâni, Qâeni, and others, cf. Av. kaurva- "bald, docked," kaurvôduma- "with a bald tail," kaurvôgaoša- "with bald ears."

com-, col-, con-, cor-, co-
  هم-، هن-، ها-، هَ-   
ham- (#), han- (#), hâ- (#), ha- (#)

Fr.: com-, col-, con-, cor-, co-   

Prefix denoting "together; with; joint; jointly". It is sometimes used for intensification as in complete, complain, convince.

M.E., from O.L., classical L. form cum "together, together with," Gk. koinos "common," from PIE *kom- "beside, near, by, with."

Ham- and ham "together, with; same, equally, even," Mid.Pers. ham-, like L. com- and Gk. syn- with neither of which it is cognate. O.Pers./Av. ham-, Skt. sam-, sa-; also O.Pers./Av. hama- "one and the same," Skt. sama-, Gk. homos-; originally identical with PIE numeral *sam- "one," from *som-. The Av. hąm- (nasal a) appears in various forms: ham-, han- (before gutturals, palatals, dentals) and also həm-, hən-, ha- (Bartholomae, 1772). Variants in Pers. ha- as in (Anâraki) ha-bend, → connect, and (Kurd.) hasûn "to whet, sharpen," and hâ- as in hâ-dâdan, hâ-gereftan, see Dehxodâ.
