Fr.: système conservatif
A system in which there is no dissipation of energy so that the total energy remains unchanged with time.
Fr.: système contraint
Fr.: système de coordonnées
Math: A system for locating each point in space by a set of numbers.
râžmânhâ-ye jafsar, ~ joftidé
Fr.: systèmes couplés
A set of two or more mechanical vibrating systems connected so that they interact with one another.
râžmân-e bolur, ~ boluri
Fr.: système cristallin
One of seven possible basic crystal types that is defined by the relations between the axis lengths and angles of its unit cell. Crystal systems can produce an infinite → lattice by successive translations in three-dimensional space so that each lattice point has an identical environment. The seven crystal systems are: → cubic, → orthorhombic, tetragonal, trigonal, hexagonal, monoclinic, and triclinic.
cubic crystal system
râžmân-e boluri-ye kâbi
Fr.: système cristallin cubique
A → crystal system whose three axes have equal lengths and all corners are 90°.
de Vaucouleurs system
râžmân-e de Vaucouleurs
Fr.: système de Vaucouleurs
A widely used scheme for classifying galaxies which is an extension
to the → Hubble sequence
Hubble sequence. De Vaucouleurs introduced a more elaborate
classification system for spiral galaxies (→ spiral galaxy)
based on three morphological
decimal number system
râžmân-e adadhâ-ye dahdahi
Fr.: système des nombres décimaux
A system of numerals for representing real numbers that uses the → base 10. It includes the digits from 0 through 9.
Fr.: système décimal
same as → decimal number system.
Fr.: système détaché
A binary system whose components are not in contact and in which no significant mass exchange is occurring.
P.p. of detach, from O.Fr. destachier (Fr. détacher), from des- "apart," + -tachier (as in atachier "to attach"); → system.
Râžmân→ system; jodâ "separate, distinct," Mid.Pers. jutâk (yutâk), jut (yut).
differentially rotating system
râžmân-e degarsâné carxân
Fr.: système en rotation différentielle
Fr.: système dissipatif
double-degenerate binary system
râžmân-e dorin-e dobâr vâgen
Fr.: système binaire doublement dégénéré
A system of evolved → binary stars in which both → components have ejected their envelopes and evolve toward → white dwarf stage. So far a half dozen double-degenerate → binary systems are known, for example Henize 2-248 (M. Santander-Garcia et al., 2015, 518, 5).
Fr.: système dynamique
A system composed of one or more entities in which one state develops into another state over the course of time.
early solar system
râžmân-e xoršidi-ye âqâzin
Fr.: système solaire primordial
A period in the evolution of the → solar system when the planets and satellites were in the process of formation.
Fr.: système Terre-Lune
A physical system composed on the → Earth and the
→ Moon in which both objects directly influence each other.
The total energy in the Earth-Moon system is conserved.
The most notable influence that the two objects have on each other is
Fr.: système écliptique
Coordinate system with the ecliptic as the fundamental plane.
Any geographic area that includes all of the organisms and nonliving parts of their physical environment.
Fr.: système équatorial
equatorial coordinate system
râžmân-e hamârâhâ-ye hamugâri
Fr.: système de coordonnées équatoriales
An astronomical → coordinate system for indicating the positions of → celestial objects on the → celestial sphere. The system consists of two components, → right ascension and → declination. Right ascension is the angle between the → vernal equinox and the point where the → hour circle intersects the → celestial equator. The right ascension is always measured eastward from the vernal equinox, in the units of hours, minutes, and seconds. Declination is the angle between the celestial equator and the position of the star measured along the star's hour circle. It is measured in degrees, minutes, and seconds north or south of the celestial equator. By definition, the vernal equinox is located at right ascension 0h and declination 0°. Equatorial coordinates change with time due to the → precession of the Earth's → rotation axis.
