acceleration potential

acceleration potential

[ak‚sel·ə′rā·shən pə′ten·shəl]
(fluid mechanics)
The sum of the potential of the force field acting on a fluid and the ratio of the pressure to the fluid density; the negative of its gradient gives the acceleration of a point in the fluid.

Additionally, in two separate releases today, Khronos has announced that it has created two new API initiatives: OpenVG(TM) that will provide a low-level hardware acceleration interface for vector graphics libraries such as Flash and SVG on handheld devices; and OpenMAX(TM) that will standardize access to media processing primitives, used extensively in graphics libraries and video codecs such as OpenGL(R) ES and MPEG-4, to rapidly and effectively make use of the full acceleration potential of new silicon.
