angular diameter tarâmun-e zâviye-yi, qotr-e ~ Fr.: diamètre angulaire The apparent diameter of an object in angular measure. |
angular diameter distance apest-e zâviye-yi Fr.: distance angulaire 1) The ratio of an object's → linear size (l)
to its → angular size (δθ, in

angular differential imaging (ADI) tasvigari-ye degarsâne-yi-ye zâviye-yi Fr.: imagerie différentielle angulaire A high-contrast imaging technique that reduces minute temporal and spatial → seeing fluctuations and facilitates the detection of faint point sources, in close separation from their stars. It consists of the acquisition of a sequence of images with an → altazimuth mounting telescope while the instrument field derotator is switched off. This keeps the instrument and telescope optics aligned and allows the field of view to rotate with respect to the instrument. For each image, a reference → point spread function (PSF) is constructed from other appropriately selected images of the same sequence and subtracted to remove quasistatic PSF structure (Marois et al. 2006, ApJ 641, 556). → angular; → differential; → imaging. |

angular momentum problem parâse-ye jonbâk-e zâviye-yi Fr.: problème de moment angulaire 1) The fact that the Sun, which contains 99.9% of the mass of the
→ solar system, accounts for about 2% of the total
→ angular momentum of the solar system. The problem of outward
→ angular momentum transfer has been a main topic of interest for
models attempting to explain the origin of the solar system. |
angular momentum transfer tarâvaž-e jonbâk-e zâviye-yi Fr.: transfert de moment angulaire A process whereby in a rotating, non-solid system matter is displaced toward (→ accretion) or away from (→ mass loss) the rotation center. See also → magnetorotational instability. |

angular resolution vâgošud-e zâviye-yi Fr.: résolution angulaire Of a telescope, the smallest angle betwwen two → point sources that produces distinct images.

angular velocity tondâ-ye zâviye-yi Fr.: vitesse angulaire A measure of the angular displacement per unit time. Of a particle traveling on a circular path or a rotating body, the ratio of the angle traversed to the amount of time it takes to traverse that angle: ω = dθ/dt. For a rigid body, all lines in it rotate through the same angle in the same time, and the angular velocity is the characteristic of the body as a whole. The angular velocity is related to the linear velocity by the equation v = rω, where r is the distance of the point from the rotation axis. → vector angular velocity. |
