element of chance - элемент случайности
leading element in determinant - элемент главной диагонали определителя
in one's element - в своей стихии
ideal generated by element - порождённый элементом идеал
Silver is a metallic element. - Химический элемент серебро является металлом.
element 110: a radioactive chemical element with a very short half-life : a transactinide produced by bombarding any of various heavy elements, esp. lead, with high-energy nuclear particles : at. no., 110; ununnilium
ideal element: any element added to a mathematical theory in order to eliminate special cases. The ideal element i = √–1 allows all algebraic equations to be solved and the point at infinity ( ideal point ) ensures that any two lines in projective geometry intersect
Peltier element: an electronic device consisting of metal strips between which alternate strips of n-type and p-type semiconductors are connected. Passage of a current causes heat to be absorbed from one set of metallic strips and emitted from the other by the Peltier effect
identity element: an element of a mathematical system that does not change the other elements in the system when it operates on them: zero is the identity element for addition ( x + 0 = x) and one is the identity element for multiplication ( y × 1 = y)
transition element: any element belonging to one of three series of elements with atomic numbers between 21 and 30, 39 and 48, and 57 and 80. They have an incomplete penultimate electron shell and tend to exhibit more than one valency and to form complexes
finite element analysis: Finite element analysis is a type of computer-based analysis which calculates variations of quantities such as temperature or stress in a body by dividing it into small parts with no spaces between them.
