physics -> Modern Physics Most of classical physics is concerned with matter and energy on the normal scale of observation; by contrast, much of modern physics is concerned with the behavior of matter and energy under extreme conditions or on the very large or very small scale.

Bible -> English Translations of the Christian Bible John Wyclif was one of the first to project the publication and distribution of the Bible in the vernacular among the English people, and two translations go by his name.

Solid-state physics is concerned with the properties exhibited by atoms and molecules because of their association and regular, periodic arrangement in crystals.

In Euclidean geometry, a translation, or translation operator, is an affine transformation of Euclidean space which moves every point by a fixed distance in the same direction.

The set of all translations form the translation group T, which is isomorphic to the space itself, and a normal subgroup of Euclidean group E(n).

Since a translation is an affine transformation but not a linear transformation, homogeneous coordinates are normally used to represent the translation operator by a matrix.
