related to aeolotropy; of a body or compound, having physical properties (e.g., electric conductivity, refractive index) that rely on the way by which they're calculated.
A non-isotropic substance, or one having different properties in numerous directions, as a biaxial crystal.
Exhibiting differences of quality or property in numerous instructions; having properties with various values along various axes; perhaps not isotropic. In specialized contexts, synonymous with anisotropic.
having properties with various values along various axes
In real, without having the exact same properties in all directions; non-isotropic; anisotropic: said of a body with reference to elasticity or perhaps the action upon it of light, temperature, etc.
