- Max Born (1920) and systematically Paul Gruner (1921) introduced symmetric Minkowski diagrams in German and French papers, where the ct'-
**axis**is perpendicular to the x-axis, as well as the ct-axis perpendicular to the x'-axis (for sources and historical details, see Loedel diagram). - The Sri Lankan
**axis**deer ("Axis axis ceylonensis") or Ceylon spotted deer is a subspecies of axis deer ("Axis axis") that inhabits only Sri Lanka. - A gyroscope has three axes: a spin
**axis**, an input axis, and an output axis. - The rotation
**axis**of the highest order is known as the principal rotation axis. - When a rigid body rotates around a fixed
**axis**, its axis–angle data are a constant rotation axis and the rotation angle continuously dependent on time.

- The steering
**axis**angle is called caster angle when measured from vertical axis or head angle when measured from horizontal axis. - A spinning wheel is mounted in a gimbal frame whose
**axis**of rotation (the precession axis) is perpendicular to the spin axis. - The usual way of orienting the plane, with the positive "x"-
**axis**pointing right and the positive "y"-axis pointing up (and the "x"-axis being the "first" and the "y"-axis the "second" axis), is considered the "positive" or "standard" orientation, also called the "right-handed" orientation. - The heart has several axes, but the most common by far is the
**axis**of the QRS complex (references to "the axis" imply the QRS axis). - Every rotation in 3D space has a fixed
**axis**unchanged by rotation.

- Leadhillite is biaxial (-) with the optical Z
**axis**parallel to the crystallographic b axis, and the optical X axis inclined to the crystallographic c axis at an angle of -5.5°. - The spreading
**axis**migrates westward at a rate of 0.3 cm/year. - The most important non-resonant CEAS techniques are off-
**axis**ICOS (OA-ICOS) or off-axis CEAS (OA-CEAS), wavelength modulation off-axis CEAS (WM-OA-CEAS), off-axis phase-shift cavity enhanced absorption spectroscopy (off-axis PS-CEAS). - Many problems in computational geometry allow for faster algorithms when restricted to (collections of)
**axis**-oriented objects, such as axis-aligned rectangles or axis-aligned line segments. - A similar statement can be made about a [...]
**axis**and the parallel centroidal [...] axis. Or, in general, any centroidal [...] axis and a parallel [...] axis.

- -
**axis**: that is, the area above the [...] -axis minus the area below the [...] -axis.
