candbar (#)

Fr.: polygone   

A one-dimensional closed figure consisting of a series of points, each of which is called a → vertex, and the line segments, called → sides, joining the vertices. Polygons of three sides are called → triangles, and of four sides → quadrilaterals.

poly- + → -gon.


Fr.: polyèdre   

1) Geometry: A three-dimensional figure formed by several → polygons.
2) A set P ⊆ ℜn is a polyhedron if there is a system of finitely many unequalities Ax ≤ b such that P = {x ∈ ℜn | Ax ≤ b}.

poly-; → hedron.

1) A mathematical expression involving a sum of powers in one or more variables multiplied by coefficients.
2) Consisting of or characterized by two or more terms or names.

polynomial; → equation.


Fr.: polisémie   

Diversity of meanings.

From N.L. polysemia, from L. polysemus "with many significations" (from Gk. polysemos, from → poly- + sem, from sema "sign," → semantic, + adj. suffix -os), + -ia.

Fr.: polytrope   

In astrophysics, a gaseous sphere in hydrodynamic equilibrium in which the pressure and density are related by the equation P = Kρ(n+1)/n at each point along the radius, where K is a constant and n is the → polytropic index. The constant K depends upon the nature of the polytrope. Before the advent of computing technology, the theory of polytropes played an important role in physically modeling the structure of stars. → Lane-Emden equation.

Polytrope, from → poly- + trope, from → -tropic.

Bolgašt, from bol-, → poly-, + gašt "change, alteration," → -tropic.


Fr.: polytropique   

1) Math.: Describing a function which has different values for one variable.
2) Thermodynamics: Pertaining to pressure and volume change that maintains specific heat. → polytropic process.

poly- + → -tropic.

polytropic change
  دگرشد ِ بُلگشتی، دگرش ِ ~   
degaršod-e bolgašti, degareš-e ~

Fr.: changement polytropique   

A change in the → pressure or → volume of a → gas in a → polytropic process.

polytropic; → change.

gâz-e bolgašti

Fr.: gaz polytropique   

A gas capable of undergoing a → polytropic process.

polytropic; → gas.

polytropic process
  فراروند ِ بُلگشتی   
farâravand-e bolgašti

Fr.: processus polytropique   

A thermodynamic process that obeys the relation: PVn = C, where P is pressure, V is volume, n is any real number, called the → polytropic index, and C is a constant.
If n = 0, then P = C and it is an → isobaric process.
If n = 1, then for an → ideal gas PV = NkT = C and it is an → isothermal process.
If n = γ, → adiabatic index, then for an ideal gas it is an → adiabatic process.

polytropic; → process.
