Gale Physics Thesaurus

The Gale Physics Thesaurus is a subset of the master Gale Science Thesaurus. It includes terms associated with the study of matter, energy, and the interactions between matter and energy. Also included are terms associated with instruments and equipment used in physics research. Specific areas include mechanics, thermodynamics, forces, radiation, optics, acoustics, photonics, molecular physics, atomic physics, the phases of matter, quantum theory, and relativity and other areas of theoretical physics.

PIRA Demonstration Classification Scheme

"The goal of the Physics Instructional Resource Association (PIRA) Demonstration Classification Scheme is to create a logically organized and universally inclusive taxonomy giving a unique code to every lecture demonstration. (...) The topic and concept divisions of the structure loosely follow the standard textbook organization of chapter and section, although they were created to organize existing demonstrations, not cover the entirety of introductory physics, and therefore skip some areas of the curriculum covered by standard textbooks.


"PhySH (Physics Subject Headings) is a physics classification scheme developed by the American Physical Society to organize journals, meetings, and other content by topic. The development of PhySH is motivated by the lack of a fully open, high quality classification scheme for physics. It is intended initially to meet the specific goals of the APS for our journal, meeting, and other content. A longer term goal is to make it available for use by the broader community.

Unified Code for Units of Measure

"The Unified Code for Units of Measure is a code system intended to include all units of measures being contemporarily used in international science, engineering, and business. The purpose is to facilitate unambiguous electronic communication of quantities together with their units. The focus is on electronic communication, as opposed to communication between humans. A typical application of The Unified Code for Units of Measure are electronic data interchange (EDI) protocols, but there is nothing that prevents it from being used in other types of machine communication.

Diccionari de física

"El Diccionari de física, elaborat conjuntament per la Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Enciclopèdia Catalana i el TERMCAT, aplega i defineix més de tres mil termes de l’àmbit de la física. Forma part de la col·lecció de diccionaris científics i tècnics Ciència i Tecnologia. El diccionari ha comptat amb la col·laboració de la Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera i la Fundació Torrens-Ibern. La física, en el seu propòsit de descriure el món, des de les partícules més petites conegudes fins al cosmos en conjunt, és considerada una ciència d’abast molt ampli, amb molta terminologia pròpia.

"Dictionary of physics, developed jointly by the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Catalan Encyclopaedia and TERMCAT, brings together more than three thousand and defines terms used in physics. It is part of the collection of scientific and technical dictionaries Science and Technology. the dictionary has had the collaboration of the Foundation La Pedrera Catalonia and the Foundation Torrens-Ibern. the physics in its purpose of describing the world, from the smallest particles known to the whole cosmos is considered a broad range of science, much terminology.

Systematische Aufstellung Physik

"Die Signatur der phy-Bücher setzt sich aus Grundsignatur und Individualsignatur zusammen. Die Grundsignatur wird von der Individualsignatur im OPAC durch '/' getrennt, auf dem Signaturaufkleber am Buch durch einen waagerechten Strich. Eine der Signatur vorangestellte '6' kennzeichnet die Mediothek als Standort des Werkes. (...) Die eindeutige Kennzeichnung eines Buches wird durch die Individualsignatur erreicht. Sie wird durch den Anfangsbuchstaben des Autors gefolgt von zwei Ziffern gebildet. Bei mehrbändigen Werken folgt dann nach '-' die Bandangabe.

"The signature of the phy books is composed of the signature and individual signature, the basic signature is separated from the individual signature in the OPAC by '/', on the signature sticker in the book by a horizontal line (...) The unambiguous identification of a book is achieved by means of the individual signature, which is formed by the author 's initial letter followed by two digits, and in the case of multi - volume works, the band is followed by' - ' The circulation is indicated in brackets.
