Definitions for "Dilation"
The process of expanding or enlarging.
(n) the act of opening up wider (e.g., dilation of the pupils of the eyes, the bronchial tubes of the lungs, etc.)
the act of expanding an aperture; "the dilation of the pupil of the eye"
The act of dilating, or the state of being dilated; expansion; dilatation.
cervical opening.
The opening or widening of the cervix to allow the baby to pass into the birth canal. Dilation is caused by contractions and measured in centimeters.
in urologic terms, the stretching of the opening from the bladder (urethra).
A transformation in which each point in the plane is mapped to a point on the ray OP where is a fixed point in the plane. The position if is determined by the scale factor by choosing so OP' = k OP. If is less than one the transformation is called a contraction. Informally, a dilation transforms a polygon to a similar shape in which the sides are proportional.
a special type of transformation that preserves shape
of a map between metric spaces is the infimum of numbers such that the given map is - Lipschitz.
In mathematics, a dilation is a function f from a metric space into itself that satisfies the identity
In operator theory, a dilation of an operator T on a Hilbert space H is an operator on a larger Hilbert space K , whose restriction to H is T.

To change in magnitude or scale, as by multiplying by a scalar. Also written as dilatation.
Morphological process that looks at an image and for each neighborhood, if any pixel in the neighborhood is "active" the entire neighborhood in the corresponding neighborhood in the result image will be active.
Increase in volume, or decrease in bulk density of a particulate solid subject to deformation. Dilation is the opposite to compaction.
