Sine Wave

Any curve plotted along an axis where the y-value moves above and below zero at a rate of y = sin(x). The Composite Index of Lagging Indicators is thought to be roughly a sine wave because interest rates and inflation, which make up the index, move in relation to each other in a way resembling the sine.

Most sine-wave models, such as the Xantrex SW Series and most OutBack inverters, include multiple AC inputs for grid and generator power, and computer interface options which will allow you to program and monitor the inverter from your computer.
5 in log-log coordinates) are clearly apparent in many empirical data bearing on this issue, leading us to question the validity of the DeVries-Rose law for sine-wave gratings.
Second, we found that the modified sine-wave inverter produced a power noticeably inferior to the pure sine-wave power we'd gotten used to from the grid.
