Fr.: 1) direct; 2) diriger   

1a) Proceeding in a straight course or line without deviation or interruption.
1b) Math.: Varying in the same manner as another quantity, especially increasing if another quantity increases or decreasing if it decreases.

2) To administer; manage; supervise; to serve as a director in the performance or production of.

From L. directus "straight," p.p. of dirigere "set straight," from → dis- "apart" + regere "to guide;" cognate with Pers. râst, as explained below.

  هم‌باز‌آنش ِ سرراست   
hambâzâneš-e sarrâst

Fr.: corrélation directe   

A correlation between two variables such that as one variable becomes large, the other also becomes large, and vice versa. The correlation coefficient is between 0 and +1. Also called positive correlation.

direct; → correlation.

direct current (DC)
  جریان ِ سرراست   
jarayân-e sarrâst

Fr.: courant continu   

An → electric current which flows in one direction only and which is substantially constant in magnitude. Virtually all electronic and computer hardware needs direct current to function. → Alternating current can be converted to direct current by means of a power supply consisting of a → transformer.

direct; → current.

direct motion
  جنبش ِ فرارو، ~ سرراست   
jonb eš-e farârow, ~ sarrâst

Fr.: mouvement direct   

The motion of a solar system body from West to East across the sky against the background stars. It is the "normal" direction of motion within the solar system. For rotating or orbiting solar system objects it is anti-clockwise as seen from above the solar system in the direction of the North Pole. The same as → prograde motion. See also → retrograde motion.

direct; → motion.

directed edge
  لبه‌ی ِ سودار   
labe-ye sudâr

Fr.: graphe orienté   

In → graph theory, an edge where endpoints are distinguished; one is the head and the other is the tail. A directed edge is specified as an ordered pair of → vertices, u, v and is denoted by (u, v) or uv.

directed; → edge.

directed graph
  نگاره‌ی ِ سودار   
negâre-ye sudâr

Fr.: graphe orienté   

In → graph theory, a graph with → directed edges. Also calle → digraph.

directed; → graph.

directed path
  په ِ سودار   
pah-e sudâr

Fr.: chemin orienté   

In a → directed graph, a path in which all → edges are oriented in the same direction.

directed; → edge.

direction
  راستا، سو؛ ۲) راشتاری   
1) râstâ, su (#); 2) râštâri

Fr.: direction   

1) A position to which motion or another position is referred.
2) The act or an instance of directing.

M.E. direccioun, from M.Fr., from L. direction-, stem of directio "arranging in line, straightening," → direct.

1) Râstâ, from directdirect + dimension suffix; su, from Mid.Pers. sôk "side."
2) Râštâri, noun from râštârdirector + suffix -i.

direction angle
  زاویه‌ی ِ راستا   
zâviye-ye râstâ

Fr.: angle de direction   

An angle made by a given vector and a coordinate axis.
The angle between the North and a chosen direction.

direct; → angle.

director
  راشتار   
râštâr

Fr.: directeur   

A person who directs a project, a group, a production.

From → direct + -tor a suffix found in loanwords from L., forming personal agent nouns from verbs.

Râštâr, from râšt- stem of râštidandirect + -âr suffix of agent noun (as in parastâr "nurse").

Dirichlet condition
  بوتار ِ دیریکله   
butâr-e Dirichlet

Fr.: condition de Dirichlet   

One of the following conditions for a → Fourier series to converge:
1) The function f(x) is defined and single valued, except possibly at a finite number of points in the interval -π, +π.
2) f(x) has a period of 2π.
3) f(x) and f'(x) are → piecewise continuous functions on -π, +π.
Then, the Fourier series converges to:
(a) f(x) if x is a point of continuity.
(b) (f(x + 0) + f(x - 0))/2, if x is a point of discontinuity.

Named after Peter Gustav Lejeune Dirichlet (1805-1859), German mathematician who made valuable contributions to → number theory, → analysis, and → mechanics; → condition.

dirt
  چرک

Fr.: saleté

  چرکین

A model for a → cometary nucleus proposed by Fred Whipple (1950-51), according to which the nucleus is a solid body (a few kilometers across) made up of various → ices (→ frozen water, → methane, → ammonia, → carbon dioxide, and → hydrogen cyanide) in which → dust is embedded. Dust particles are liberated when the ices vaporize as the → comet approaches the → Sun, and they get blown away by → solar radiation pressure, often forming impressive, gently curved → dust tails.

dirty; → ice; → ball; → model.

dis-
     
vâ- (#)

Fr.: dis-   

A prefix meaning "lack of, not" (e.g. dishonest); "do the opposite of" (e.g. disallow); "apart, away" (e.g. discard); before f, dif-; before some consonants (b, d, l, m, n, r, s, v, and sometimes g and j) di-.

From O.Fr. des-, from L. dis- "apart," from PIE *dis- "apart, asunder" (cf. O.E. te-, O.S. ti-, O.H.G. ze-, Ger. zer-). The PIE root is a secondary form of *dwis- and is thus related to L. → bis "twice."
