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.

Modified sine wave UPS output is shown in figure 4, which shows that the distortion in the wave form.
For the period from the maximum to the transition point, the sine curve used is sometimes treated as a the second quadrant of the same sine curve used for the period up to the maximum (Parton and Logan 1981; Goudriaan and van Laar 1994), although others have preferred a separate sine curve with a different phase length for this section (Cesaraccio et al.
Cordua said she named the cafe Sine Cura - which means "without care" in Latin - because she wanted the location to be one where people could sit back and relax.
His sine tables were calculated to an accuracy of four decimal places.
Orice cuvant transmite un sens, dar nici un cuvant nu isi poarta in sine procedura semnificanta.
However, Sine and co-author James Hunt, AIA, caution against designing spaces that are "so institutional" that they get in the way of recovery, rather than promote it.
The source recordings were the original, unprocessed digital files of laboratory-prepared sine waves and speech samples; the clipped recordings were the source recordings after their amplitudes had been increased beyond their maximum quantization levels, causing clipping of the waveform peaks; and the restored recordings were the clipped recordings after being processed by the two commercial software programs to restore their peaks.
The frequency of SINE elements had significantly lower densities in imprinted genes compared to control genes in both human and cattle.
Fined pounds 250, banned Sine Die with no review for five years from May 15, 2008 with a further 140 days on review if ban lifted.
The primary objective of this study was to determine whether the use of a newer HFCWO device that generates oscillations with a triangular waveform results in greater sputum production than a commonly used device that generates oscillations with a sine waveform.
When the sine wave crosses zero, no power is supplied to the load; only when the sine wave is at its peak is the instantaneous power applied to the load equal to the DC power.
