dispersion measure
  اندازه‌ی ِ پاشش   
andâze-ye pâšeš

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.

dispersion relation
  بازانش ِ پاشش   
bâzâneš-e pâšeš

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.

dispersion; → relation.

dispersive
  پاشنده، پاششی

Fr.: dispersif   

Tending or serving to disperse.

The reciprocal of the → dispersive power.

dispersive; → index.

dispersive medium
  مدیم ِ پاشنده   
madim-e pâšandé

Fr.: milieu dispersif   

A medium in which the → phase velocity is a function of → wave number (→ frequency).

dispersive; → medium.

dispersive power
  توان ِ پاشش   
tâvân-e pâšeš

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.

dispersive; → power.

displacement
  جا-به-جایی   
jâ-be-jâyi (#)

Fr.: déplacement   

Physics: A vector quantity that specifies the change of position of a body or particle from the mean position or position of rest.
Geology: The offset of rocks caused by movement along a fault.

From displace, from → dis- + place + -ment.

Jâ bé jâyi, noun of jâ bé jâ literally "place to place," from "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."

displacement current
  جریان ِ جا-به-جایی   
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.

displacement; → current.

display
  ۱) نمودن، نمایاندن، نمایش‌دادن؛ ۲) نمایش   
1) nemudan, nemâyândan, nemâyeš dâdan; 2) nemâyeš (#)

Fr.: 1) visualiser; 2) visualisation   

1a) To show; make visible.
1b) Of computers, to show the output data on a screen.
2a) The act of displaying.
2b) Of computers, a visual representation of information.

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.

disruption
  گسیخت   
gosixt

Fr.: rupture   

Forcible division into pieces of an object. → tidal disruption.
