Fr.: vent de disque
In → magnetocentrifugal models of → protostars, the wind arising from a significant range of radii in the → accretion disk. The contribution from innermost parts of the disk is dealt with by the → X-wind model. (Königl A. and Pudritz R. E., 2000, In Protostars and Planets IV, V. Mannings, et al. (eds.), Tucson: Univ. Arizona Press, p. 759).
Fr.: bulbe en forme de disque
A → galaxy bulge that is flatter than a → classical bulge. Such bulges might be difficult to see in very inclined galaxies. They may contain sub-structures such as nuclear → bars, → spiral arms, or → rings. They usually show signs of → dust obscuration, younger → stellar populations, or ongoing → star formation. These systems seem to form mostly through disk instabilities (→ disk instability), such as bars, in a relatively slow, continuous and smooth process. Essentially, such instabilities induce a redistribution of → angular momentum along the galaxy, and, as a result, mostly gas but also stars are driven to the disk center. Also called → pseudo-bulge (Kormendy & Kennicutt, 2004, ARA&A 42, 603; Fisher & Drory, 2010, ApJ 716, 942).
Birâyegi, from birâyé, → disordered, + -(g)i noun suffix.
Lacking → order.
→ disorder + -ed.
1) To spread or distribute from a fixed or constant source.
M.E., from M.Fr. disperser "scatter," from L. dispersus, p.p. of dispergere "to scatter," from → dis- "apart" + spargere "to scatter," from PIE base *(s)pregh- "to scatter;" cf. Av. spareg- "to germinate, shoot, sprout," fra-sparəγa- "shoot, sprout," Skt. parjanya- "rain, rain god," Lith. spurgas "sprout."
Pâšidan "to scatter, sprinkle," az ham pâšidan "to scatter on all sides;" cf. Gazi pâšn-/pâšnâ "to scatter, spread," Lor. perxa "sprinkling;" Av. paršat.gauu- "having a speckled cow;" Skt. prs- "to sprinkle," parsati "sprinkles;" Toch. pärs- "to sprinkle;" Lith. purškiu "I spray;" PIE roor *pers- "to spray, sprinkle."
1) The resolution of white light into its component wavelengths,
either by → refraction or by → diffraction.
Dispersion is actually an effect in which radiations having → different
wavelengths travel at different speeds in the medium. Since
the → angle of refraction
of each radiation vary as a function of
its → wavelength, the component waves deviate from each other.
Verbal noun of → disperse.
Fr.: courbe de dispersion
A graph displaying the variation of the → refractive index of a substance against the wavelength of the electromagnetic wave passing through the substance.
Fr.: équation de dispersion
Fr.: mesure de dispersion
A parameter used in radio astronomy which describes the amount of dispersion in a radio signal due to its passage through an intervening plasma. It is proportional to the product of the interstellar electron density and the distance to the source.
Fr.: relation de dispersion
An equation that describes how the → angular frequency, ω, of a wave depends on its → wave number, k. For the simplest of waves, where the speed of propagation, c, is a constant, ω(k) = ck. If the → phase velocity depends on k, that is for a dispersive medium, the function ω(k) is nonlinear.
Tending or serving to disperse.
Fr.: indice de dispersion
The reciprocal of the → dispersive power.
Fr.: milieu dispersif
Fr.: pouvoir dispersif
A measure of the ability of a medium to separate different colors of light. It is defined by: (n2 - n1)/(n - 1), where n1 and n2 are refractive indices at two specified widely differing wavelengths, and n is the → index of refraction for the average of these wavelengths.
A vector quantity that specifies the change of position of a body or
particle from the mean position or position of rest.
From displace, from → dis- + place + -ment.
Jâ bé jâyi, noun of jâ bé jâ literally "place to place," from jâ "place," from Mid.Pers. giyag "place," O.Pers. ā-vahana- "place, village," Av. vah- "to dwell, stay," vanhaiti "he dwells, stays," Skt. vásati "he dwells," Gk. aesa (nukta) "to pass (the night)," Ossetic wat "room; bed; place," Tokharian B wäs- "to stay, wait;" PIE base ues- "to stay, live, spend the night."
jarayân-e jâ-be-jâyi (#)
Fr.: courant de déplacement
In electromagnetism, a quantity which is not a real current (movement of charge), but has the units of current and has an associated magnetic field. The physical meaning of this displacement current is that a changing electric field makes a changing magnetic field.
1) nemudan, nemâyândan, nemâyeš dâdan; 2) nemâyeš (#)
Fr.: 1) visualiser; 2) visualisation
1a) To show; make visible.
From O.Fr. despleier "to unfold, spread out," from L. displicare "to scatter," from → dis- "un-, apart" + plicare "to fold, twist," from PIE base *plek- "to plait, twist" (cf. Gk. plekein "to plait," L. plectere "to plait, braid, intertwine," Av. frašna- "helmet" (in ərəzatô.frašna- "having a silver helmet" (epithet of Mithra), Skt. praśna- "turban," O.H.G. flehtan "to plait," Russ. plesti "to plait").
Nemudan, nemâyândan "to show, display," from Mid.Pers. nimūdan, present stem nimây- "to show," from O.Pers./Av. ni- "down; into," → ni-, + māy- "to measure," cf. Skt. mati "measures," matra- "measure," PIE base *me- "to measure;" cf. Gk. metron "measure," L. metrum.
1) To incur the dissatisfaction, dislike, or disapproval of; offend; annoy.
Fr.: mécontentement, déplaisir
Dissatisfaction, disapproval, or annoyance.
An act or instance of disqualifying; the state of being disqualified.
