Fr.: domaine   

1) Math.: The set of x values that can go into a function f(x). Compare with → codomain and → range.
2) Ferromagnetism: Any of several microscopic regions polarized in various directions whose combination forms a ferroelectric substance. In the absence of an external magnetic field, the directions of the magnetization vectors of the separates domains do not coincide and the resultant magnetization of the whole body may be zero.

From M.Fr. domaine "domain, estate," from O.Fr. demaine "lord's estate," from L. dominium "property, dominion," from dominus "master of a household," from domus "house;" cognate with Pers. dam, as below; Gk. domos "house;" O.C.S. domu , Russ. dom "house;" Lith. dimstis "enclosed court, property;" O.E. timber "building, structure"); PIE base *dem-/*dom- "to build."
