competitive accretion model
  مدل ِ فربال ِ هاجویشی   
model-e farbâl-e hâjuyeši

Fr.: modèle d'accrétion compétitive   

A scenario for → massive star formation whereby developing → protostars in their natal → molecular clouds compete with each other to gather mass. The protostars → accrete mass with a rate which depends on their location within the protocluster. They use the same reservoir of gas to grow. Therefore those protostars nearest the center, where the potential well is deep, and gas densities are higher, have the highest → accretion rates. The competitive accretion model explains the observational fact that the most massive stars are generally found in cluster cores. It accounts also for the distribution of stellar masses. In this model the accretion process depends on the content of the cluster. In clusters where gas dominates the potential (e.g. at initial stages of cluster formation), the accretion process is better modeled by using the → tidal radius as the accretion radius. In contrast, when the stars dominate the cluster potential and are virialized, the accretion is better modeled by → Bondi-Hoyle accretion (Bonnell et al. 1997, MNRAS 285, 201; 2001, MNRAS 323, 785).

competitive; → accretion; → model.

M.E., from O.Fr. compiler "compile, collect," from L. compilare "to plunder, rob," probably originally "bundle together, heap up;" from → com- "together" + pilare "to fix firmly, accumulate."

Hâtalidan, from hâ- variant of ham-, → com-, + tal, → pile, + -idan suffix of infinitives.


Fr.: compilateur   

A → software program that compiles program source code files into an executable program.

compile + → -er


Fr.: se plaindre   

To express dissatisfaction, pain, uneasiness, censure, resentment, or grief; find fault (

M.E. compleinen, from O.Fr. complaindre "to lament" from V.L. *complangere, originally "to beat the breast," from L. → com- an intensive prefix + plangere "to strike, beat the breast."

Mid.Pers. garz- "to weep, lament," garzišn "complaint;" Mod.Pers. geristan, geryidan "to weep," gelé "gripe, complaint, lamentation;" Kurd (Kurm.) girižin/giriž- "to be grumpy, growl;" Av. gərəz- "to lament, weep;" cf. Skt. grah "to complain;" Proto-Ir. *garz- "to lament, weep."


Fr.: plaint   

An expression of discontent, regret, pain, censure, resentment, or grief; lament; faultfinding (

M.E. compleynte, from O.Fr. complainte "complaint, lament," noun from complaindre "to lament," → complain.

Verbal noun of garzidan, → complain.


Fr.: complément   

1) Math., logic: With reference to any set A, conceived as a subset of some larger set U, all the elements of U that are not contained in A.
2) Optics: A complementary color that, when combined to another, creates neutral gray.

From O.Fr. complement, from L. complementum "that which fills up or completes," from complere "fill up," → complete.

Osporân, from ospor present tense stem of osporidan "to → complete."


Fr.: complémentarité   

The state or quality of being → complementary.

From → complementary + → -ity.

From osporandé, → complementary, + -gi, same as -i noun suffix.

complementarity principle
  پروز ِ اسپرندگی   
parvaz-e osporandegi

Fr.: principe de complémentarité   

Physical principle, put forward by Niels Bohr in 1928, that a complete knowledge of phenomena on atomic dimensions requires a description of both wave and particle properties.

complementarity; → principle.


Fr.: complémentaire   

Forming or serving as a complement; completing.

From → complement.

complementary angle
  زاویه‌ی ِ اسپرنده   
zâviyé-ye osporandé

Fr.: angle complémentaire   

Any angle that when added to another one creates a 90° angle.

complementary; → angle.

complementary apertures
  دهانه‌های ِ اسپرنده   
dahânehâ-ye osporandé

Fr.: ouvertures complémentaires   

Same as → complementary screens.

complementary; → aperture.

complementary screens
  پرده‌های ِ اسپرنده   
pardehâ-ye osporandé

Fr.: écrans complémentaires   

Two apertures where opaque and transparent areas are inverted. If A is an aperture that has some opaque areas and some transparent ones, the complementary pattern A' is the pattern in which exactly the opposite areas are opaque and transparent. Thus, the complimentary screen of a single slit is a wire of the same size, and the complementary screen of a circular opening is a dot. A better term would be → complementary apertures.

complementary; → screen.
