Fr.: déconvolution   

A mathematical operation that allows to restore the original input signal, such as an astronomical image or spectrum, to its state before being affected by the → atmospheric turbulence and the → transfer function of the instrument. → convolution.

From → de- + → convolution.

  خوارزمیک ِ واهماگیش   
xârazmik-e vâhamâgiš

Fr.: logiciel de déconvolution, algorithme ~ ~   

An algorithm used to improve the resolution of an image particularly when the convolving function is well defined. Also called deconvolution code.

  واجفسریدن، واجفتیدن   
vâjafsaridan, vâjoftidan

Fr.: découpler   

1) To separate or detach; to cause to become disconnected or divergent.
2) Electronics: To reduce or eliminate the coupling of (one circuit or part to another).
3) Physics: To decrease or eliminate the shock waves of a nuclear explosion by having it take place underground.

de- + → couple.

  واجفسری، واجفتش   
vâjafsari, vâjofteš

Fr.: découplage   

Cosmology: In the early history of the Universe, separation of matter and radiation due to their non-interaction. At a redshift of 1000, that is about 400,000 years after the Big Bang, the temperature would have cooled to the point (4000 degrees Kelvin) where electrons and nuclei can recombine and form neutral hydrogen atoms. Since atoms do not scatter the radiation appreciably, free electrons were lacking, and the Universe became transparent to radiation. Same as → recombination. See also → decoupling era.

Verbal noun of decouple, from → de- + → couple + → -ing.

decoupling era
  دوران ِ واجفسری، ~ واجفتش   
dowrân-e vâjafsari, ~ vâjofteš

Fr.: époque du découplage   

The era some 400,000 years after the → Big Bang, when the cosmic → blackbody radiation was last scattered by the matter. → decoupling. Same as → recombination era and → last scattering epoch.

decoupling; → era.

Fr.: 1) décroitre; 2) décroissance

2) The act or process of decreasing; condition of being decreased. → Forbush decrease.

Decrease, from M.E. decres (n.), decresen, from O.Fr. descreistre, from L. decrescere, from → de- + crescere "to grow," → crescent.

Kâstan, kâh-, from Mid.Pers. kâhitan, kâstan, kâhênitan "to decrease, diminish, lessen," Av. kasu- "small, little" (Mod.Pers. keh), Proto-Iranian *kas- "to be small, diminish, lessen;" kâheš verbal noun from kâhidan.


Fr.: décrément   

1) The amount lost in the process of decreasing.
2) Math.: The quantity by which a variable is decreased. A negative → increment.
3) Physics: 1) The ratio of the amplitude of an oscillation to that of its succeeding oscillation in an underdamped vibrating system. 2) The intensity ratio of a series of spectral lines of the same nature, such as → Balmer decrement.

L decrementum, from decre(tus), → decrease + -mentum noun suffix -ment.

Kâheh, from kâh- present stem of kâhidan, → decrease + noun suffix .


Fr.: décrétion   

A physical process that is contrary to accretion, referring to the outward direction of the mass flow from a star to its environment.

From → de- "reversal, removal," + -cretion, from L. accretionem (nom. accretio, gen. accretionis) "a growing larger," from stem of accrescere, → accretion.

decretion disk
  گرده‌ی ِ وابال   
gerde-ye vâbâl

Fr.: disque de décrétion   

A disk that would form around a star when the star injects matter into a close orbit. This is in contrast to an → accretion disk, which transfers matter from outside to the star. The mass gets injected into the decretion disk by a not yet well-known mechanism, most probably a combination of → non-radial pulsation, fast rotation, and possibly small-scale → magnetic fields. See also → viscous decretion disk.

decretion; → disk.


Fr.: décryptage

Fr.: décryptage   

The process of restoring encrypted data back to the original information. See also → encryption and → decoding.

decrypt; → -tion.

  فروهاختن، فروهازیدن   
foruhâxtan, foruhâzidan

Fr.: déduire   

To derive as a conclusion from facts or premises.

L. deducere "to lead down, derive," from → de- "down" + ducere "to lead."
