G \G\ (j[=e])

  1. G is the seventh letter of the English alphabet, and a vocal consonant. It has two sounds; one simple, as in gave, go, gull; the other compound (like that of j), as in gem, gin, dingy. See Guide to Pronunciation, [sect][sect] 231-6, 155, 176, 178, 179, 196, 211, 246.

    Note: The form of G is from the Latin, in the alphabet which it first appeared as a modified form of C. The name is also from the Latin, and probably comes to us through the French. Etymologically it is most closely related to a c hard, k y, and w; as in corn, grain, kernel; kin L. genus, Gr. ?; E. garden, yard; drag, draw; also to ch and h; as in get, prehensile; guest, host (an army); gall, choler; gust, choose. See C.

  2. (Mus.) G is the name of the fifth tone of the natural or model scale; -- called also sol by the Italians and French.

Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary

"the sun personified," mid-15c. (also in Old English), from Latin sol "the sun, sunlight," from PIE *s(e)wol-, variant of root *saewel- "the sun" (cognates: Sanskrit suryah, Avestan hvar "sun, light, heavens;" Greek helios; Lithuanian saule; Old Church Slavonic slunice; Gothic sauil, Old English sol "sun," swegl "sky, heavens, the sun;" Welsh haul, Old Cornish heuul, Breton heol "sun;" Old Irish suil "eye").\n

\nThe PIE element -*el- in the root originally was a suffix and had an alternative form -*en-, yielding *s(u)wen-, source of English sun (n.). French soleil (10c.) is from Vulgar Latin *soliculus, diminutive of sol; in Vulgar Latin diminutives had the full meaning of their principal words.

Artificial sols may be prepared by dispersion or condensation. Dispersion techniques include grinding solids to colloidal dimensions by ball milling and Bredig's arc method. The stability of sols may be maintained by using dispersing agents.

Sols are commonly used in preparing sol-gels.

Sól (sun)

Sól ( Old Norse "Sun") or Sunna ( Old High German, and existing as an Old Norse and Icelandic synonym: see Wiktionary sunna, "Sun") is the Sun personified in Germanic mythology. One of the two Old High German Merseburg Incantations, written in the 9th or 10th century CE, attests that Sunna is the sister of Sinthgunt. In Norse mythology, Sól is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson.

In both the Poetic Edda and the Prose Edda she is described as the sister of the personified moon, Máni, is the daughter of Mundilfari, is at times referred to as Álfröðull, and is foretold to be killed by a monstrous wolf during the events of Ragnarök, though beforehand she will have given birth to a daughter who continues her mother's course through the heavens. In the Prose Edda, she is additionally described as the wife of Glenr. As a proper noun, Sól appears throughout Old Norse literature. Scholars have produced theories about the development of the goddess from potential Nordic Bronze Age and Proto-Indo-European roots.

Sol (mythology)

Sol was the solar deity in Ancient Roman religion. It was long thought that Rome actually had two different, consecutive sun gods. The first, Sol Indiges, was thought to have been unimportant, disappearing altogether at an early period. Only in the late Roman Empire, scholars argued, did solar cult re-appear with the arrival in Rome of the Syrian Sol Invictus, perhaps under the influence of the Mithraic mysteries. Recent publications have challenged the notion of two different sun gods in Rome, pointing to the abundant evidence for the continuity of the cult of Sol, and the lack of any clear differentiation - either in name or depiction - between the "early" and "late" Roman sun god.

Sol (comedian)

Sol is a fictional character written for and performed on stage by Marc Favreau.

Sol is a clown who handily deconstructs the French language, to the amusement of adults as well as toddlers. Sol mostly appears alone on stage and recites comic monologues dealing with current social and political issues.

Sol began as a regular on La Boîte à surprise, a long-running children's television show on the French language Radio-Canada network. At that time, the act was called Bim et Sol. The character proved popular so Marc Favreau developed Sol's monologues into a one-man show. Favreau then teamed up with another clown for Sol et Bouton. He also appeared on a popular television series called Sol et Gobelet opposite Luc Durand. Sol also appeared on a television series on TVOntario called Parlez-moi, which taught basic French, as it is spoken in Quebec and other parts of Canada.

Sol (format)

sol is a file format for representing solutions of mathematical programming problems. It is often used in conjunction with the nl format to return solutions from the solvers. Initially this format has been invented for connecting solvers to AMPL but then it has been adopted by other systems such as FortSP for interacting with external solvers.

The sol format is low-level and is designed for compactness not for readability. It has both binary and textual representation. Many solvers such as CPLEX, Gurobi and MOSEK can produce files in this format either directly or through special driver programs.

The AMPL Solver Library (ASL) which allows among other things to read and write the sol files is open-source. It is used in many solvers to implement AMPL connection.
