**Von Kármán constant**— A unitless constant describing the logarithmic velocity profile of a turbulent fluid near a no slip boundary. The equation for such boundary layer flow profiles is:u=frac{u {star{k}lnfrac{z}{z 0}where u is the velocity at height z above the… …82

**Mouse flow**— In computer networking, a mouse flow is a short (in total bytes) flow set up by a TCP (or other protocol) flow measured over a network link. A mouse is a flow with less than C packets. An elephant flow is a flow with at least C packets. The… …84

**Linear flow on the torus**— In mathematics, esecially in the area of mathematical analysis known as dynamical systems theory, a linear flow on the torus is a flow on the n dimensional torus:mathbb{T}^n = underbrace{S^1 imes S^1 imes cdots imes S^1} nwhich is represented by… …85

**Cooling flow**— A cooling flow occurs according to the theory that the intracluster medium (ICM) in the centres of galaxy clusters should be rapidly cooling at the rate of tens to thousands of solar masses per year.[1] This should happen as the ICM (a plasma) is …86

**Yamabe flow**— In differential geometry, the Yamabe flow is an intrinsic geometric flow a process which deforms the metric of a Riemannian manifold.It is the negative L 2 gradient flow of the (normalized) total scalar curvature, restricted to a given conformal… …87

**steady streamlined flow**— An airflow whose parameters (e.g., speed, direction, pressure, etc.) are constant at any point with respect to time. The airflow could be linear, a controlled separated flow, a leading edge vortex flow, or a vortex trail. Vortex streamline flow.… …88

**laminar flow**— noun Date: 1935 uninterrupted flow in a fluid near a solid boundary in which the direction of flow at every point remains constant compare turbulent flow …89

**(the) ebb and flow of something**— the ebb and flow of (something) the continually changing character of something. There is a normal ebb and flow in nature, for example, when there is just the right amount of rain and when there is not enough. Usage notes: often said about… …90
