Verbal noun of populate, from M.L. populatus, p.p. of populare "to inhabit," from L. populus "people."

In the IE languages the concepts of "full, many, multitude" and "people, group, herd, flock" are related. In Pers. several variants of por "full, much, many" denote "group, population," as in Lori, Qâyeni bor "group, tribe, herd," Torbat-Heydariyeyi, Qomi borr "heap, bundle, group," Qomi borreh "group, assemblage of people," Pashtu parrak "flock, herd," Urdu para "flock, herd," Lârestâni baila "group, tribe," Tabari balik "herd, flock;" other examples from literary Pers. bâré "herd, flock," parré "a rank or file of soldiers, a circular disposition of troops." Therefore, porineš "population," verbal noun of porinidan "to populate," infinitive of porin "populous," from por "mutitude, many, full" + -in attribution suffix. Por, from Mid.Pers. purr "full;" O.Pers. paru- "much, many;" Av. par- "to fill," parav-, pauru-, pouru- "full, much, many;" PIE base *pelu- "full," from *pel- "to be full;" cf. Skt. puru- "much, abundant;" Gk. polus "many," plethos "great number, multitude;" O.E. full.

Population I star
  ستاره‌ی ِ پرینش ِ I

A member of a class of relatively young stars, containing a large fraction of → metals, found mainly in the disk of the Galaxy.

  ستاره‌ی ِ پرینش ِ II   
setâre-ye porineš-e II

Fr.: étoiles de population II

Population III star
  ستاره‌ی ِ پرینش ِ III   
setâre-ye porineš-e III

Fr.: étoile de population III   

A member of the first generation of stars, formed out of pristine gas, enriched by → primordial nucleosynthesis alone. The material from which these stars formed consisted mostly of hydrogen and helium. Because neutral hydrogen clouds were free of dust, their cooling mechanism was drastically ineffective. As a result, these star forming clouds had a much higher temperature than in the present epoch, and their → Jeans mass was much higher. Therefore, these first generation of stars were principally massive, with a typical mass scale of order of about 100 Msun. Population III stars started forming about 300 million years after the → Big Bang at → redshifts between 50 and 6, when the Universe had between 1 and 5% of its present age. These stars were probably responsible for the → reionization of the Universe. Given their high mass, they lived only a few million years ending with either a → pair-instability supernova phase or a direct collapse to a → black hole. Population III stars thus initiated the chemical enrichment of the Universe and opened the way to more normal modes of star formation, namely → Population II. Some models predict a bimodal → initial mass function for the first stars, allowing also for solar mass stars. See also → extremely metal-poor star.

population; III, Roman number 3; → star.

population inversion

pore
  لیک   
lik

Fr.: pore   

1) A small hole such as a space especially in a rock, soil, etc. → porous dust grain, → porosity.
2) A minute orifice in an animal or plant, as in the skin or a leaf.
3) Sun: A small → sunspot that does not have a → penumbra. Pores are up to about 2,500 km across and are lighter than a sunspot's → umbra. They appear and disappear at the surface of the Sun where sunspots are rarely formed, e.g. at low latitudes. Their lifetimes can be as short as 1/2 hour and as long as several days.

From L. porus "a pore," from Gk. poros "a pore," literally "passage, way," from PIE root *per- "to lead, pass over."

Lik, from Gilaki lik "hole," variants luk, luke, liuk, luxa, Tabari luk, li, Sangesari, Semnâni lu, Aftari lo.

porosity
  پرلیکی   
porliki

Fr.: porosité

3) Dust grains: The quantity usually defined as: P = (Vv/Vt) = (1 - Vs/Vt), where Vv and Vs are the volumes of vacuum and of the solid matter making up the particle, and Vt is the total volume of the particle within some defined surface.

porous; → -ity.

porous
  پرلیک   
porlik

Fr.: poreux

  دانه‌ی ِ غبار ِ پرلیک   
dâne-ye qobâr-e porlik

Fr.: grain de poussière poreux   

A type of → interstellar dust grain made up of an aggregate of components with a hollow structure. Various processes operating in interstellar and → circumstellar media are believed to produce inhomogeneous and porous dust grains. Porous grains can produce more → extinction per unit mass than their combined individual dust components. They are generally cooler than compact grains (see, e.g., Iati et al. 2001, MNRAS 322, 749).

porous; → dust; → grain.

Porrima (γ Vir)
  پوریما   
Porrimâ
