It appears that you are referring to a measurement series.  "A" (single)
"measurement" sounds like an individual data point, to me.    (02)

A more semantic name than "T" would be
"TimeTemperatureGraphOfObjectA".    (07)

Since ObjectAsTimeTemperatureGraph is an object that has
one functional property that relates it to Object A and another
functional property that relates it to a specific temperature at
some defined times (and to no temperature at other times).    (014)
