1) General: Pertaining to, established by, or conforming to a
canon, i.e. a law or a general rule (especially in ecclesiastical matters).
M.M. canonicalis, from canonic(us), from L. canon, from Gk. kanon "a straight rod, a measuring rod, rule " + alis, → -al.
Hanjârvâr, from hanjâr "a mason's rule, any string or instrument used by builders in laying stones straight; rule, law, way, custom; a norm" + -vâr suffix meaning "having, endowed with; like, in the manner of."
degaršod-e hanjârvâr, degareš-e ~
Fr.: changement canonique
A periodic change in one of the components of the orbit of a celestial object.
Fr.: coordonnées canoniques
Any set of generalized coordinates of a system together with their → conjugate momenta.
→ canonical; → coordinates.
Fr.: correlation canonique
The highest correlation between linear functions of two data sets when specific restrictions are imposed upon them.
→ canonical; → correlation.
Fr.: équation canonique
The most general form of an equation.
Fr.: forme canonique
The simplest expression of an equation, statement, or rule.
Fr.: IMF canonique
A two-component stellar → initial mass function with → slopes of 1.3 and 2.3 for massive and low mass stars, respectively. Also called universal IMF.
tarz-e hanjârvâr, model-e ~
Fr.: modèle canonique
A model for the formation of the Moon according to which the → Moon results from a giant impact. A Mars-sized body (often referred to as → Theia) obliquely collided with the proto-Earth at the mutual escapee velocity. This specific giant impact is often used to represent all giant impacts. A recent advanced version of the canonical model is called → giant impact hypothesis.
Fr.: moment cinétique canonique
Same as → conjugate momentum.
canonical upper limit
hadd-e zabarin-e jerm
Fr.: limite supériure canonique
A physical upper mass limit near 150 Msun assumed for the stellar → initial mass function (Kroupa et al. 2012, arXiv:1112.3340).
canonically conjugate variable
vartande-ye hanjârvârâné hamyuq
Fr.: variable canoniquement conjuguée
A generalized coordinate and its → conjugate momentum.
Canonically, adverb from → canonical; → conjugate; → variable.
Gibbs canonical distribution
vâbâžeš-e hanjârvâr-e Gibbs
Fr.: distribution canonique de Gibbs
The probability distribution of the various possible states of a certain → quasi-closed subsystem.
→ Gibbs free energy; → canonical; → distribution.
Fr.: étoile super-canonique
A star whose mass exceeds the → canonical upper limit of the stellar → initial mass function (Kroupa et al. 2012, arXiv:1112.3340).
