sine wave mowj-e sinusi (#) Fr.: onde sinusoïdale A periodic oscillation that is defined by the function y = sin x. |
single tak, taktâ Fr.: seul, isolé Only one in number; one only; unique; sole. M.E., from O.Fr. sengle "being one, separate," from L. singulus "one, individual, separate," from sim- (stem of simplus) + diminutive suffix, → -ule. Tak"single, alone," related to tâq "odd, single," tâ, tâh "piece, part; fold, plait, ply;" Mid.Pers. tak "single," tâg, tâk, tâi "unit, piece." |
single scattering parâkaneš-e tak Fr.: diffusion unique, ~ simple A type of scattering where photons are scattered only once. Single scattering dominates in → optically thin media, since photons have a high probability of exiting the medium (e.g., a thin cloud) before being scattered again. → single; → scattering. |
single-dish observation nepâhešè-e tak-jâm Fr.: observation avec antenne uinique A radio astronomical observation which uses only one antenna, in contrast to interferometric observations. → single; → dish; → observation. |
single-lined binary dorin-e tak-xatté Fr.: binaire à une seule raie A → spectroscopic binary in which only one set of → spectral lines is detectable. The binary nature of the system is deduced from the fact that the spectral lines exhibit periodic → Doppler shifts due to orbital motions in the system. Same as → SB1 binary. See also: → double-lined binary. |
singlet taktâyé Fr.: singulet A single unit; an unpaired or separate item. → doublet; → octet; → quadruplet. From → single + -et diminutive suffix, M.E. from O.F. -et (masc.), -ette (fem.). Taktâyé, literally "single-folded," from tak, → single, + -tâyé, from tâ- "fold, plait, ply; piece, part;" Mid.Pers. tâg "piece, part" + -yé nuance suffix. |
singlet state hâlat-e taktâyé Fr.: état singulet In atomic physics, the electronic state of an atom or molecule for which the total → spin angular momentum is zero. |
singly ionized atom atom-e yekbâr yonidé Fr.: atome une fois ionisé An atom that has lost one electron and has become a positive ion. |
singly ionized carbon Fr.: carbone une fois ionié A carbon atom → singly ionized by a photon of energy 11.3 eV. The ion C^{+} emits a → fine-structure line (^{2}P_{3/2}→ ^{2}P_{1/2}) at 157.7 μm when excitation conditions are satisfied (critical density ~ 3 x 10^{3} cm^{-3}). In → photodissociation regions, [C II] 157.7 μm is a major cooling line for regions exposed to significant → far ultraviolet (FUV) photon fluxes. In Galactic → H II regions, as well as in the central regions of external galaxies, the luminosity of the [C II] line is typically ~ 0.05-0.5% of the FUV luminosity and correlates well with → carbon monoxide (CO) line intensities. |
singular takin (#) Fr.: singulier Math.: 1) Of or pertaining to a linear transformation from a vector space
to itself that is not one-to-one. M.E., from O.Fr. singuler "single, separate," from L. singularis "single, solitary," from singulus "one, individual, separate," from sim- (stem of simplus) + diminutive suffix. Takin, from tak "single, alone," related to tâq "odd, single," tâ, tâh "piece, part; fold, plait, ply;" Mid.Pers. tak "single," tâg, tâk, tâi "unit, piece, after numerals" + -in adj. suffix. |
singular isothermal sphere kore-ye izodamâ-ye takin Fr.: sphère isotherme singulère In models of star formation, an isothermal sphere in which the density distribution in the static or nearly static outer envelope obeys an r^{-2} power law. In the limit of infinite central concentration, the unstable equilibrium approaches the singular isothermal sphere which has the density and mass distributions ρ(r) = (a^{2}/2πG)r^{-2} and M(r) = (2a^{2}/G)r, where a is the isothermal → sound speed inside the cloud, G is the → gravitational constant, and r the distance from the center (F. H. Shu, 1977, ApJ 214, 488). → singular; → isothermal; → sphere. |
singular matrix mâtris-e takin Fr.: matrice singulière A → square matrix that does not have a → matrix inverse. |
singular point noqte-ye takin Fr.: point singulier The point M_{0}(x_{0},y_{0}) of the curve F(x,y) = 0, where at least one of the → partial derivatives ∂F/∂x and ∂F/∂y vanishes. See also → ordinary point. |
singular solution luyeš-e takin Fr.: solution singulière, ~ particulière Of partial differential equations, the solution which cannot be obtained from the general solution by particular choice of arbitrary functions. → general solution; → particular solution. |
singularity takini (#) Fr.: singularité 1) Math.: A point at which a given mathematical object is not defined. |
sink câhak (#) Fr.: puits 1) A region within a system where mass or energy is given up, in contrast to a
→ source, where mass or energy is released. M.E. sinken, O.E. sincan, from verb; cf. O.S. sinkan, O.N. sökkva, M.Du. sinken, Du. zinken, O.H.G. sinkan, Ger. sinken, Goth. sigqan "to sink." Câhak, from câh "a well" (Mid.Pers. câh "a well;" Av. cāt- "a well," from kan- "to dig," uskən- "to dig out;" O.Pers. kan- "to dig;" Mod.Pers. kandan "to dig;" cf. Skt. khan- "to dig," khanati "he digs," kha- "cavity, hollow, cave, aperture") + -ak diminutive suffix. |
sink particle zarre-ye câhak Fr.: particule puits In hydrodynamics codes, a way of treating a collapsing or accreting region, such as a star, as a simple → point mass. Indeed, in many situations, the scale of interest is much larger than the scale of the → accreting object itself and it would be impossible to perform the calculation otherwise. → Sinks are generally modeled as → Lagrangian particles (see, e.g., Bates et al. 1995, MNRAS 277, 362; Krumholz et al. 2004, ApJ 611, 399; Federrath et al. 2010, ApJ 713, 269). |
Sinope Sinopé (#) Fr.: Sinopé The outermost of Jupiter's known confirmed satellites, also known as Jupiter IX, discovered by Seth B. Nicholson (1891-1963) in 1914. With a visual magnitude of 18.3, it has a diameter of 28 km and orbits Jupiter at a mean distance of 23,848,000 km every 753 days. In Gk. mythology a Naias Nymphe who was abducted by Zeus to a Black Sea coast where the city of Sinope was named for her. According to most sources, she tricked Zeus into swearing an oath promising her her virginity. |
