(from Greek δυναμικός
"powerful", from δύναμις
"power") may refer to:In Physics:
- Dynamics (physics), in physics, dynamics refers to time evolution of physical processes
- Analytical dynamics in physics, refers to the motion of bodies as induced by external forces
- Relativistic dynamics may refer to a combination of relativistic and quantum concepts to describe the relationships between the motion and properties of a relativistic system and the forces acting on the system. It may also refer simply to the impact of special relativity upon classical dynamics.
- Molecular dynamics
- Gravitational dynamics, the study of the dynamics of systems dominated by gravitational force
- Thermodynamics, a branch of physics that studies the relationships between heat and mechanical energy using macroscopic variables such as temperature, pressure, and volume
- Fluid dynamics, the study of liquids and gasses in motion
- In quantum physics, dynamics may refer to how forces are quantized, as in quantum electrodynamics or quantum chromodynamics.Other:
- System dynamics, the study of the behaviour of complex systems
- A Dynamical system in mathematics or complexity.
- Dynamics (music), In music, dynamics refers to the softness or loudness of a sound or note. The term is also applied to the written or printed musical notation used to indicate dynamics.
- Group dynamics, the study of social group processes
- Psychodynamics, the study of the interrelationship of various parts of the mind, personality, or psyche as they relate to mental, emotional, or motivational forces especially at the subconscious level
- Neurodynamics, an area of research in the brain sciences which places a strong focus upon the spatio-temporal (dynamic) character of neural activity in describing brain function
- Power dynamics, the dynamics of power, used in sociology
- Dynamic programming in computer science and control theory.
- Dynamic program analysis, in computer science is a set of methods for analyzing code that is performed with executing programs built from that software on a real or virtual processor.
