relative tensor tânsor-e bâzâni Fr.: tenseur relatif A generalized tensor concept that is characterized by a → Jacobian matrix of transformation raised to a power called → weight of a tensor density. In practice, only relative tensors of weight 1 or -1 are used. The product of a relative tensor of weight -1 by another tensor of weight 1 is an → absolute tensor. Same as → tensor density. |
relative vector bordâr-e bâzâni Fr.: vecteur relatif A → relative tensor of → order → one. |
relative velocity tondâ-ye bâzâni Fr.: vitesse relative For two objects A and B, the velocity which B, supposing itself at rest, assigns to A. |
relatively bâzânivâr, bâzânâné Fr.: relativement In a relative manner; in relation to something else. From → relative + -ly "-vâr, -âné." |
relativism bâzâni-bâvari Fr.: relativisme The belief that truth is relative and may vary from individual to individual, from group to group, or from time to time, having no objective standard. From → relative + -ism a suffix used in the formation of nouns denoting action or practice, state or condition, principles, doctrines, etc. Bâzâni-bâvari, from bâzâni, → relative, + bâvari, from bâvar "belief" (Mid.Pers. wâbar "beleif;" Proto-Iranian *uar- "to choose; to convince; to believe;" cf. Av. var- "to choose; to convince" varəna-, varana- "conviction, faith;" O.Pers. v(a)r- "to choose; to convince;" Skt. vr- "to choose," vara- "choosing"). |
relativist bâzâni-bâvar Fr.: relativiste An adherent or advocate of relativism. From → relative + -ist a suffix of nouns. Adj. from → relativism. |
relativistic bâzânigimand, bâzânivar Fr.: relativiste 1) Physics: Relating to the → relativity theory. From → relativist + → -ic. |
relativistic aberration birâheš-e bâzânigimand Fr.: aberration relativiste The aberration of light for an object moving with
→ relativistic speed. In contrast to the classical case,
the → Lorentz transformation between the
→ rest frame of the observer and that of the object
must be used. Relativistic aberration is expressed by the equation:
cos φ' = (cos φ - → relativistic; → aberration. |
relativistic Doppler effect oskar-e Doppler-e bâzânigimand Fr.: effet Doppler relativiste The Doppler effect when the relative motion of the source and the observer is comparable to the speed of light. In that case the classical Doppler formula should be corrected for effects of the special theory of relativity (Lorentz transformation). → relativistic; → Doppler effect. |
relativistic effect oskar-e bâzânigimand Fr.: effet relativiste A physical phenomenon described only by the theories of → special relativity or → general relativity. → relativistic; → effect. |
relativistic mass jerm-e bâzânigimand Fr.: masse relativiste In → special relativity, the mass that is assigned to a body in motion. Einstein demonstrated that the velocity of the observer has an effect on the way inertial mass is measured. The relativistic mass is expressed by m_{t} = m_{0} / [1 - (v/c)^{2}]^{1/2}, where m_{0} is the → rest mass, v is the velocity, and c the → velocity of light. The experimental evidence for this phenomenon is observed in the mass of high-speed electrons accelerated by magnetic fields. This formula shows that it is impossible for a mass to be accelerated to the velocity of light in a vacuum. → relativistic; → mass. |
relativistic particle zarre-ye bâzânigimand Fr.: particule relativiste A particle which has a speed comparable to the velocity of light. → relativistic; → particle. |
relativistic precession pišâyân-e bâzânigimand Fr.: précession relativiste A → general relativistic phenomenon in which the line joining the → apsides of an orbit gradually rotates in a → prograde direction. Also called the → orbital precession and → perihelion precession. Although the general relativistic precession of Mercury's orbit is extremely small, the similar precession observed in the orbit of the → binary pulsar PSR B1913+16 amounts to 4.23 degrees per year, i.e. 36,000 times greater than the → advance of perihelion of Mercury. → relativistic; → precession. |
relativistic quantum mechanics kuântom mekânik-e bâzânigimand Fr.: mécanique quantique relativiste A quantum theory that incorporates special relativity, for example, → quantum electrodynamics. |
relativistic redshift sorx kib-e bâzânigimand Fr.: décalage vers le rouge relativiste A redshift caused by the → relativistic Doppler effect. → gravitational redshift. → relativistic; → redshift. |
relativistic speed tondi-ye bâzânigimand Fr.: vitesse relativiste Same as → relativistic velocity. → relativistic; → speed. |
relativistic spin precession pišâyân-e âse-ye carxeš-e bâzânigi-mand Fr.: précession de l'axe de rotation relativiste The change in the direction of the → rotation axis of a → pulsar in a → binary pulsar. In such a system, → geodetic precession leads to a relativistic → spin-orbit coupling, analogous of → spin-orbit coupling in atomic physics. In consequence, the pulsar spin precesses about the total → angular momentum, changing the relative → orientation of the pulsar toward Earth (Damour & Ruffini, 1974). As a result, the angle between the pulsar → rotation axis and our → line of sight changes with time, so that different portions of the emission beam can be observed leading to changes in the measured pulse profile. In extreme cases, the precession may even move the beam out of our line of sight and the pulsar may disappear as predicted for PSR 1913+16 for the year 2025. → relativistic; → spin; → precession. |
relativistic velocity tondâ-ye bâzânigimand Fr.: vitesse relativiste The velocity of a body when it is a significant fraction of the → speed of light. → relativistic; → velocity. |
relativity bâzânigi Fr.: relativité General: The state or fact of being relative. |
relativity of simultaneity bâzânigi-ye hamzamâni Fr.: relatitivité de simultanéité A basic concept of → special relativity whereby → events that are simultaneous in one → reference frame are not simultaneous in another reference frame moving with respect to the first. → relativity; → simultaneity. |
