relativity principle
  پروز ِ بازانیگی

relaxation
  واهلش   
vâheleš (#)

Fr.: relaxation   

1) The evolution of the properties of a physical system which has been disturbed and which regains its equilibrium condition once the disturbing action has ceased. Relaxation is the response of the system to the perturbation. The time required by the system to regain its condition of minimum energy is called the → relaxation time.
2) Math.: In numerical analysis, a method of solving equations in which the errors, or residuals, resulting from an initial approximation are reduced by succeeding approximations until finally all are within the toleration limit.

Fr.: relais   

General: The act of passing something along from one person, group, or device to another.

A device consisting of a receiver and a transmitter, used to receive and retransmit signals.

Fr.: rem   

A unit used for measuring the effective dose of radiation received by a living organism. It is the quantity of radiation whose biological effect is equal to that produced by one → roentgen of → X-rays. 1 rem = 0.01 sievert (Sv) or 10 → millisieverts.
