Wave

A short-term movement that goes against the general trend. For example, if the DJIA rallies on a given trading day but overall is in the midst of a prolonged bear market, the rally is called a wave against the bearish tide.

Travelling wave solutions [phi] satisfy the advance-delay equation
The stator utilizes two 3rd-order bending modes in the section plane as working modes to form a travelling wave. The thread contact pair between the rotor and stator then transforms the rotation of the rotor into helical motion (linear and synchronous rotation).
The first observation in [1] is that travelling wave solutions of the general class (2) with power nonlinearities exist for two different regimes.
If there is a nonincreasing travelling wave W(c; [theta], x - ct) with W(c; [theta], [infinity]) = 0 and W(c; [theta], -[infinity]) = [beta], then c [greater than or equal to] [c.sup.*].
More specifically, in this paper we are looking for travelling wave solutions.

It has been shown that chemotaxis does not influence the existence of travelling wave solutions (see, e.g., [1]).
Zitterbart said that he was really surprised to learn that a travelling wave can be triggered by any penguin in a huddle rather than penguins on the outside trying to push in.
The time stamps are fixed at the travelling wave Arrival moments.
SWAs may operate in standing or travelling wave mode and the slots used are called resonant or non-resonant slots, respectively.
