Delta was coined by Herodotus (the father of history, 484-425 BC) after the Greek letter delta because of the deltoid-shape at the mouth of the Nile.
Delta definition: Coastal accumulations, both subaqueous and subaerial, of river-derived sediments adjacent to, or in close proximity to, the source stream, including the deposits that have been secondarily molded by various marine agents, such as waves, currents, or tides.

 [No title]
In this appeal, we determine that the defendant airline's form letter advising a number of passengers that their tickets are considered to be stolen may be defamatory to the plaintiff travel agency that sold the tickets.
The Delta letter notes the reason for refusal to "honor this ticket for transportation [is] because Delta has not yet received the money you paid." Yet Taj Mahal is the only entity with which the patron had contact.
The District Court was correct in holding the letter was not reasonably susceptible to a defamatory meaning and did not "state, suggest or imply that the plaintiff was a thief." Therefore, I would affirm the decision of the District Court granting Delta's motion to dismiss Taj Mahal's complaint.

The sea coast line of the Delta is practically inaccessible on account of shallow water and the tremendous surf raised by the trade winds.
To recapitulate: the Delta is entirely covered by alluvium, but the proximity to Oilfields in Trinidad, seepages in the Delta, and the knowledge that Geological conditions cannot be very dissimilar to those in Trinidad, affords a basis on which relative values of different parts of the Delta may to some extent be judged.
In view of the apparent impossibility of surveying the Delta concession in the time available, the state of the surveys in hand and the probability or otherwise of plans being accepted by the Goverment assume a dominating importance.

 Kronecker delta Summary
In this usage, it takes the form of a Greek letter delta with two subscripts which indicate that the components are to be multiplied if the subscripts are equal and thrown out if the subscripts are different.
The Kronecker delta is not something that can be proven or disproven--it merely indicates, without a lot of excess verbiage, which of several potential components the mathematician is using.
In mathematics, the Kronecker delta or Kronecker's delta, named after Leopold Kronecker (1823-1891), is a function of two variables, usually integers, which is 1 if they are equal, and 0 otherwise.

Delta failed to respond to an initial US Air proposal last spring and a follow-up letter on Sept. 29.

[from triangular shape of the Nile delta, like the Greek letter delta], a deposit of clay, silt, and sand formed at the mouth of a river where the stream loses velocity and drops part of its sediment load.
No delta is formed if the coast is sinking or if there is an ocean or tidal current strong enough to prevent sediment deposition.

 What Are Deltas?
In this discussion, as it relates to kinematics and the study of physics in general, the Greek letter delta means 'change in'.
One note about the calculation for delta time: Unless you are working on some special time reversal problem, (which would be unusual), if you end up with a negative change in time, very most likely you have made a mistake.
For example, lower case script delta is often used as a symbol for an angle, and in advanced calculus lower case script delta is used in the symbol for a partial derivative.
