To have, produce, or generate oscillations. → vibrate.

From L. oscillatus, p.p. of oscillare "to swing," from oscill(um) "swing" + -ate a suffix forming verbs from L. words.

Navidan "to swing, oscillate," from nâvidan, literally "to swing like a ship," from nâv "ship;" O.Pers./Av. *nāv-, O.Pers. nāviyā- "fleet;" Skt. nau-, nava- "ship, boat;" Gk. naus "ship;" PIE *nau- "boat."

oscillating Universe
  گیتیِ نونده   
giti-ye navandé

A cosmological model in which the Universe is closed and undergoes a series of oscillations, each beginning with a big bang and ending with a big crunch.

Oscillating, verbal adj. of → oscillate; → universe.

naveš (#)

Fr.: oscillation   

The state of any quantity when the value of that quantity is continually changing so that it passes through maximum and minimum values.

Verbal noun of → oscillate.

oscillation mode
  ترز ِ نَوِش، مُد ِ ~   
tarz-e naveš, mod-e ~

Fr.: modes d'oscillation   

Same as → pulsation mode.

oscillation; → mode.

navešgar (#)

Fr.: oscillator   

A device for producing sonic or ultrasonic pressure waves in a medium. A device with no rotating parts for converting direct current into alternating current.

Agent noun of → oscillate.

oscillator strength
  زورِ نوشگر   
zur-e navešgar

Fr.: force d'oscillateur   

A quantum-mechanical measure of the probability that a specific atomic transition will occur. It is used in the equation for the absorption coefficient of a spectral line. Also known as f value.

oscillator; → strength.



Geometry: Of a curve, to touch another curve so as to have the same tangent and curvature at the point of contact.

From L. osculatum p.p. of osculari "to kiss," from osculum "kiss," literally "little mouth," diminutive of os "mouth;" PIE *os-/*ous- "mouth;" cf. Av. āh- "mouth;" Skt. ās-, āsán- "mouth;" Hittite aiš- "mouth;" O.Ir. á "mouth;" O.N. oss "mouth."

Relating to → osculate.

Participial adjective of → osculate.

osculating circle
  پرهونِ آبوسنده   
parhun-e âbusandé

Fr.: cercle osculateur   

The circle that touches a curve (on the concave side) and whose radius is the radius of curvature.

osculating; → circle.

osculating elements
  بن‌پارهایِ آبوسشی

Fr.: éléments orbitaux osculateurs   

The orbital elements of an osculating orbit.

osculating; → element.

osculating orbit
  مدارِ آبوسنده   
madâr-e âbusandé

Fr.: orbite osculatrice   

The Keplerian orbit that a satellite would follow after a specific time t if all forces other than central inverse-square forces ceased to act from time t on. An osculating orbit is tangent to the real, perturbed, orbit and has the same velocity at the point of tangency.

Fr.: OSIRIS-REx   

A → spacecraft whose goal is to collect a sample from the asteroid → 101955 Bennu and bring it back to Earth. It was launched by → NASA on September 8, 2016. OSIRIS-REx will spend two years chasing Bennu down, finally rendezvousing with the → near-Earth asteroid in August 2018. The spacecraft will then study the → asteroid Bennu from orbit for another two years before grabbing at least 60 grams of surface material in July 2020. The sample should reach Earth in 2023.

The name is short for Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer .
