Fr.: hydrocarbures aromatiques polycycliques   

1) Chemistry: A family of → organic molecules composed of carbon and hydrogen atoms (→ hydrocarbons) in which → carbon atoms appear in multiple loops (polycyclic) with strong chemical → bonds that exist between them (aromatic). PAHs are formed during the incomplete burning of coal, oil and gas, garbage, or other organic substances like tobacco or charbroiled meat. As a pollutant, they are of concern because some compounds (benzo(a)pyrene) have been identified as tending to cause cancer.
2) Astro.: Strong → infrared emission features at 3.3, 6.2, 7.7, 8.6, and 11.2 microns, which are attributed to PAH molecules in the form of → dust grains with radii smaller than 10 Å. PAHs are common toward various sources characterized by a strong → ultraviolet radiation field (such as → active galaxies, → reflexion nebulae, → planetary nebulae, → H II regions). In particular, they trace the presence of → massive stars. The PAH features are thought to result from the fluorescent emission process of PAH molecules and ions excited by ultraviolet radiation of nearby stars. PAHs are likely produced by → photoevaporation of → very small grains.

Fr.: 1) polynôme; 2) polynomial   

1) A mathematical expression involving a sum of powers in one or more variables multiplied by coefficients.

Bolcemi, from bol, → poly-, + cem, → meaning, + noun suffix -i.

polytheism
  بل‌یزدان‌باوری، چندیزدان‌باوری   
bol-yazdân-bâvari, cand-yazdân-bâvari

Fr.: polythéisme   

The doctrine of or belief in more than one god or in many gods (Dictionary.com). → polydeism.

poly-; → theism.

polytrope
  بُلگشت   
bolgašt

Fr.: polytrope   

In astrophysics, a gaseous sphere in hydrodynamic equilibrium in which the pressure and density are related by the equation P = Kρ(n+1)/n at each point along the radius, where K is a constant and n is the → polytropic index. The constant K depends upon the nature of the polytrope. Before the advent of computing technology, the theory of polytropes played an important role in physically modeling the structure of stars. → Lane-Emden equation.

Polytrope, from → poly- + trope, from → -tropic.

Bolgašt, from bol-, → poly-, + gašt "change, alteration," → -tropic.

polytropic
  بُلگشتی   
bolgašti

Fr.: polytropique   

1) Math.: Describing a function which has different values for one variable.
