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.

Caption: Figure 3: (a) Left panel shows single-frequency (10 Hz) sinusoidal wave with 500 sample points; middle panel shows the MSE for various length time series across several scaling factors; right panel shows normalized MSE (for scale factors [tau] = 1-10) and SE; (b) top row shows sinusoidal wave with white noise, (c) pink noise, and (d) brown noise; (b) bottom row shows normalized MSE (for scale factors [tau] = 1-10) and SE for sine wave with white noise, (c) pink noise, and (d) brown noise, respectively.
When the echo intensity is simulated with a sinusoidal wave, the difference between the two methods is large, and the normalized error ranges from -0.15 to -0.138 and from -0.122 to -0.11 for two precipitation types.
The induced magnetic fields may be expressed as a superposition of damping sinusoidal waves. The magnitude of induced magnetic fields near the sea surface produced by a typical vessel moving at moderate speed under moderate sea state is on the order of a few hundred pico-Tesla.
The difference between using only a sinusoidal wave and several harmonics looks subtle, but the result is remarkable.
It can be concluded that the method using the "sinusoidal wave" whose amplitude and phase are both transient to reconstruct the "triangular wave" based on the HHT has almost reproduced the original "triangular wave" perfectly.
For example in this simulation we select the IC provided that, its maximum value of amplitude is more than 50% of maximum value of originally sinusoidal wave's amplitude and the frequency of it not less or more than 50% of maximum amplitude's frequency value of original signal.
Non-linear loads draw current that is not in a sinusoidal wave form due to the power being consumed in pulses.
On top of the steady current field (second test), a sinusoidal wave train with a period of 1.0 s and a wave height of 0.0118 m is imposed at x = 18 m.
A synthetic three-component signal was produced by an attenuated tone-burst sinusoidal wave and a computer-generated random number.
The advantage of this feature is that its positive-to-negative swap about the zero order can neither be created nor copied with common holographic techniques because these only generate gratings with symmetrical sinusoidal wave cross sections.
A two-dimensional flow of an incompressible electrically conducting Carreau fluid in an inclined symmetric channel with inclination a induced by sinusoidal wave trains propagating with constant speed along the channel walls is considered.
