Motion in which all the points of the moving body have at any instant the same velocity and direction of motion; -- opposed to rotation.
all points on a tooth move in a parallel straight line; the center of rotation is at infinity
Geometric transformation involving a linear shift in location.
( slide): A transformation of a plane where every point is moved in the same direction and the same distance to a new point ; moving a shape along a straight line without it flipping, rotating, or reflecting
A transformation, or change in position, resulting from a slide with no turn.
A geometric operation in which an image is moved up or down and/or left or right.
a transformation that moves all points the same distance in a common direction.
a transformation whereby a figure is reproduced at a different location by sliding it from the original location.
(mathematics) a transformation in which the origin of the coordinate system is moved to another position but the direction of each axis remains the same
a correspondence between points and their image points so that each image is the same distance in the same direction from the original point
an isometry which is a shift of some specified direction and distance
a shift and is specified by a direction and distance
a sliding of the graph
a transformation that moves an object relative to its current position
A movement of a figure to a new position without turning or flipping it.
A transformation in which the new coordinate axes are parallel to the original ones. A translation preserves length, angle, and orientation of all geometric entities.
a transformation where every point of a figure moves the same distance in the same direction.
A translation in a plane from A to A' is a transformation which maps any point P into a point P' such that PP' = AA' and PP' || AA'.
A transformation made by substitutions that shift each point of a given graph to a different location without changing the shape of the graph.
a transformation in which points in the original figure move an identical distance along parallel paths to the image; all the points in the original figure are equidistant from their images and the original figure and its image are congruent
to move along in constant contact with the surface in a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal direction. Also called a Slide.
A transformation that moves a geometric figure by sliding. Each of the points of the figure moves the same distance in the same direction.
an exact duplication of a geometric figure formed by moving each point in the figure the same distance and in the same direction.
see Slide.
A change in location of a figure by sliding it without turning it
A term used in geometry. Often called a slide. The figure or shape is moved from each point of the figure/shape in the same direction and distance.
The process of transforming all or part of a source program into a program image that contains all the information needed for the program to run.
transformation in which a figure “slides” along a line.
An approach to OO development that achieves design reuse by automating the resolution of nonfunctional requirements. Typically full automatic code generation is provided from an OOA model. In MDA terms translation involves a transformation from a PIM directly to a PSM that is a 3GL program. (See category on MDA.)
A transformation that slides a figure a given distance in a given direction. A translation is also called a slide.
A transformation of the number line or plane that moves each point the same distance in a fixed direction.
