    • n version In obstetrics, a manipulation whereby a malposition of the child is rectified, during delivery, by bringing the head or the feet into the line of the axis of the parturient canal; turning. According as the feet or the head may be brought down, the operation is called podalic or cephalic version. Pelvic version is that which converts a malpresentation into a breech-presentation. Version is called external when it is effected by external manipulation only, internal when it is performed by the hand within the parturient canal, and bimanual or bipolar when one hand acting directly upon the child in the uterus is aided by the other placed upon the abdominal wall.
    • n version In mathematical physics, the measure of the direction and magnitude of the rotation about a neighboring point produced by any vector function distributed through space. Thus, if the vector function is the velocity of a fluid at the different points of space, its curl or version is the rotation of that fluid at any point where its motion is rotational. The advantage of the word version over rotation is that it is applicable to cases where there is no motion: as. for example, to a stress.
