Keyword indicating that an instance or class variable is not to be saved when an object is serialized.
(adj.) In the JavaTM look and feel, characteristic of a keyword that indicates that a field is not part of the serialized form of an object.

A species or population that migrates through a given area, but does not breed or winter there. Twice a year, during both its northward (spring) and southward (fall) migrations, the Purple Martin passes through Central America where it is present only as a transient.
Transient plane source is a type of modified hot wire. It is a transient reflectance technique for solids and liquids in which the sample surrounds a heating element configured as a planar circle. With the constant current heat input to the sample, a 3 dimensional heat flow results and the temperature of the interface is monitored and plotted against a time function. The results are thermal conductivity and diffusivity – both independent of each other, without requiring sample geometry information, density or heat capacity.
