Definitions for "ORBit "
ORBit is an Object Request Broker aiming for full CORBA
The path described by a heavenly body in its periodical revolution around another body; as, the orbit of Jupiter, of the earth, of the moon.
1) The motion of a massive body around another massive body, governed by the force of gravity. Planets in our Solar System follow elliptical orbits around the Sun, as first noted by Johannes Kepler. An orbit is actually composed of two motions: one that points toward the other body (for example, a planet or star) and the another that points tangentially to the direction of motion. In the case of a circular orbit, these two component motions are at a 90 degree angle. According to Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, an orbit is actually a geodesic in space-time. 2) The act of one body revolving around another.

Orbit is a long-running series of anthologies of new fiction edited by Damon Knight; often featuring work by such writers as Gene Wolfe, Joanna Russ, R. A. Lafferty, and Kate Wilhelm, who was married to Knight. The anthologies tended toward the avant-garde edge of science fiction, but by no means exclusively; occasionally the volumes would feature some nonfictional critical writing or humorous anecdote-gathering by Knight.
Orbit is a fictional character, a mutant in the Marvel Comics Universe. His first appearance was in X-Statix #1.

The set of strands emanating from an indexpage or homepage. Each orbit is very much like a web. A closed orbit refers specifically to those infopages that are under the control of a single designer and which link only to the designers pages.
Dataformat in NEMO used to represent a stellar orbit; most programs in NEMO which handle orbits start or end with `` orb''.

an area in which something acts or operates or has power or control: "the range of a supersonic jet"; "the ambit of municipal legislation"; "within the compass of this article"; "within the scope of an investigation"; "outside the reach of the law"; "in the political orbit of a world power"
The set of iterates of a (here discrete) dynamical system. Strictly speaking, we allow negative (because is invertible), but in this paper I loosely refer to a `forward' orbit, with nonnegative only, simply as an `orbit'. We denote this by orb.
In the study of dynamical systems, an orbit is a collection of points related by time evolution. The points of the orbit will be a subset of the phase or state space of the dynamical system. If the dynamical system is a map, the orbit is a sequence and if the dynamical system is a flow, the orbit is a curve.
Orbit is a bus route of the University of Georgia Campus Transit system. The UGA Campus Transit system carries a greater volume of passengers than any other university transit system in the United States.
