Fr.: libration diurne
Daily geometrical libration of the Moon arising from the fact that observers at different points on the Earth see the Moon from slightly different angles. As the Moon rises in the east, you are positioned on one side of our planet, and by the time it sets in the west. Earth's rotation has carried you to the other side. This change in position produces a slight → parallax effect that adds about another 1° of libration in longitude. Two other geometrical libration are → libration in longitude and → libration in latitude. See also → physical libration.
Fr.: mouvement diurne
The daily apparent motion of all celestial objects, due to Earth's rotation.
Fr.: parallaxe diurne
The apparent difference between the position of a celestial object measured from the Earth's surface and the position that would be recorded by a hypothetical observer at the center of the Earth. Same as → geocentric parallax.
1) quté, 2) quté xordan
Fr.: 1) plongon; 2) plonger
1a) An act or instance of diving.
M.E. diven "to dive, dip," O.E. dufan (strong verb) "to dive, duck, sink" and dyfan "to dip, submerge" (weak, transitive), related to → deep.
Quté is possibly Pers., since Farhang-e Asadai records it with "t" and not Ar. "tayn" (Dehxoda), although its etymology is not established. We propose ultimately from Proto-Ir. *ui-pat-, from *pat- "to fall, to fly," to which is related Pers. oft-, oftâdan "to → fall;" cf. Pashto. qupah "a dip, a dive, a plunge."
(v.intr.) To move, or extend in different directions from a common point.
M.L. divergere, from → di- "apart," variant of → dis- + vergere "to bend, turn, incline," from PIE *werg- "to turn," from base *wer- "to turn, bend" (cf.

Verâyidan, from vâ- "apart," → de-, + gerâyidan "to incline toward; to intend; to make for," infinitive of gerâ, the etymology of which is not clear. Gerâ may be a variant of Mod.Pers. kil "bent, inclined" (k/g and l/r interchanges), from PIE base *klei- "to lean, incline," cognate with L. clinare "to bend" (E. declination, inclination, etc.), Gk. klinein "to cause to slope, slant, incline," Skt. sri- "to lean," O.Pers. θray-, Av. sray- "to lean," P.Gmc. *khlinen (Ger. lehnen, E. lean).
1) The act, fact, or amount of diverging.
From diverge, → diverge, + -ence a noun suffix.
Vâgerâyi, from vâgerâ stem of vâgerâyidan, → diverge, + noun suffix -i.
Fr.: théorème de flux-divergence
Same as → Gauss's theorem.

M.L. divergent-, stem of divergens pr.p. of divergere, from → di- "apart," variant of → dis- + vergere "to bend, turn, incline," from PIE *werg- "to turn," from base *wer- "to turn, bend" (cf. L. vertere "to turn," Av. var ət- "to turn," Mod.Pers. gard, gardidan "to turn," Skt. vartate "turns round, rolls," Gk. rhatane "stirrer, ladle," Ger. werden, O.E. weorðan "to become."
Vâgerâ, agent noun from vâgerâyidan, → diverge + noun suffix -i.
