zir-daryâ-yi (#)

Fr.: sous-marin   

(Adj.) Located, occurring, operating, or living beneath the surface of the → sea.

sub- + → marine.

  روک ِ زیر-دریایی   
ruk-e zir-daryâ-yi


Geology: A long, steep elevation of the deep sea floor.

submarine; → ridge.

submarine spring
  چشمه‌ی ِ زیر-دریایی

  ۱) مرچیدن؛ ۲) مرچاندن   
1) marcidan; 2) marcândan

Fr.: submerger   

1) To sink or plunge under water or beneath the surface of any enveloping medium.
2) To cover or overflow with water; immerse (

From L. submergere, from → sub- + mergere "to dip, immerse;" probably by rhotacism from PIE *mezg- "to dip, plunge;" cf. Skt. majj- "to sink in water;" Lith. mazgoju "to wash."

Marcidan, from Av. mraoc- "to float, submerge;" cf. Skt. mroc/mloc "to go down, set (of the Sun), to disappear, to hide;" Kurd., Laki, Nahâvandi, Bovir-Ahmadi mala- "swim," Kurd. melâna "ship, boat," melaq "wave" may be related to this Av. form.


Fr.: sub-millimétrique   

Of or pertaining to scales smaller than millimeter.

sub-; → millimeter.

submillimeter astronomy
  اخترشناسی ِ زیر-میلیمتری   
axtaršenâsi-ye zir-milimetri

Fr.: astronomie sub-millimétrique   

The study of astronomical objects with → submillimeter waves. As with millimeter-wave astronomy, this part of the spectrum is rich in lines emitted by interstellar molecules and dust.

submillimeter; → astronomy.

submillimeter galaxy (SMG)
  کهکشان ِ زیر-میلیمتری   
kahkešân-e zir-milimetri

Fr.: galaxie sub-millimétrique   

A member of an extremely luminous population of → high-redshift galaxies which are detected in → submillimeter waves (→ flux density at 850 μm ≥ 3 - 5 mJy). SMGs are powered primarily by star formation rather than an → active galactic nucleus (AGN). Because of their high → dust content, these galaxies emit almost all of their luminosity in the infrared, with a → bolometric luminosity ranging from 1012-1013 → solar luminosities. As such, SMGs resemble → ultraluminous infrared galaxies (ULIRGs), which are almost exclusively → merging galaxies. Indeed, many observations support a → merger origin for SMGs (see, e.g. C.C. Hayward et al. 2011 and references therein, astro-ph/1101.0002).

submillimeter; → galaxy.

submillimeter radiation
  تابش ِ زیر-میلیمتری   
tâbeš-e zir-milimetri

Fr.: rayonnement sub-millimétrique   

That part of the → electromagnetic radiation with a → wavelength beyond 300 → microns.

submillimeter; → radiation.

submillimeter wave
  موج ِ زیر-میلیمتری   
mowj-e zir-milimetri

Fr.: onde sub-millimétrique   

An electromagnetic wave having wavelengths less than one millimeter (frequencies greater than 300 gigahertz).

millimeter; → wave.


Fr.: soumission   

An act or instance of submitting. The condition of having submitted. → submit

Verbal noun of → submit.


Fr.: soumettre   

To present for the approval, consideration, or decision of another or others. For example, to submit a research paper for publication, to submit an observing proposal.

From L. submittere "to yield, lower, let down, put under, reduce," from → sub- "under" + mittere "to let go, send."

Dar sepordan, dar sepârdan "to yield, surrender, give in," from dar "in, into" (→ in-) + sepordan/sepârdan "to give in charge, entrust to, deposit with;" ultimately Proto-Iranian *spar- "to hand over, entrust."


Fr.: sous preuve   

A proof that occurs within the context of a larger proof

sub-; → proof.


Fr.: subrelativiste   

Describing a system or situation for which the → Lorentz factor, γ, is much smaller than 1. See also → ultrarelativistic.

ultra- + → relativistic

zirnevešt (#)

Fr.: indice inférieur   

1) Math.: An → index (a digit or symbol) written under and to the right of a letter for representing terms in a → sequence or → series, or indicating variable components in → tensor analysis. → superscript.
2) Chemistry: Such a number occurring in a chemical formula.

From L. subscriptus, p.p. of subscribere "to write underneath," from → sub- "underneath" + scribere "to write," → describe.

Zirnevešt, from zir-, → sub-, + nevešt "written," from neveštan, nevis- "to write;" Mid.Pers. nibištan, nibes- "to write;" Av./O.Pers. nī- "down; in, into," → ni- (PIE), + paēs- "to paint; to adorn," paēsa- "adornment" (Mid.Pers. pēsīdan "to adorn"); O.Pers. pais- "to adorn, cut, engrave" (Mod.Pers. pisé "variegated"); cf. Skt. piśáti "adorns; cuts;" Gk. poikilos "multicolored;" L. pingit "embroiders, paints;" O.C.S. pisati "to write;" O.H.G. fēh "multicolored;" Lith. piēšti "to draw, adorn;" PIE base *peik- "colored, speckled."


Fr.: sous-ensemble   

A set of elements wholly contained in another set. If each element of a set A belongs to a set B, A is called a subset of B, written A ⊂ B or B ⊃ A and read "A is contained in B" or "B contains A" respectively.

sub- + → set.


Fr.: sous couche   

A set of electrons with the same angular momentum quantum number, denote l. The number of electrons permitted in a subshell is equal to 2l + 1.
