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.

Basing on the IoT platform we proposed a method to apply the green wave theory in urban areas of Vietnam so that the green bandwidth of arterial roads is maximied by changing cycle time, splits, and offset and non-fixed vehicles' velocities and traffic flow along arterial roads.
Linear wave theory is adopted to design marine conditions.
Linear Wave Theory. This theory is a method that replicates the ocean through simulation and generates data on the sea surface by synthesizing waves [4, 6].
For such situations, upstream influence area is determined by traffic wave theory. Assume that a traffic accident occurs on the basic link of highway, where upstream traffic demand is greater than actual capacity.
(1984) proposed an algebraic equation using the linear wave theory and wave energy conservation which was later modified by Mendez and Losada (2004):
A natural correction to Kogelnik's coupled wave theory to account for the last fact was made by Uchida [18] using the so-called beta value technique.
The widely developed understanding in contemporary wave theory is related to the separation of a multi-wave process into separate waves.
By using this method, we already established the "partial and temporary unified water gravity wave theory so far" and the corresponding "partial and temporary unified water gravity wave variational principle so far" in reference [6]; and established the "partial and temporary unified theory of fluid mechanics so far" and the corresponding "partial and temporary unified variational principle of fluid mechanics so far" in reference [7].
One of the examples is 'the wave theory of sound, which required development of the novel concept of a sound wave' (109).
Dent popularized the baby boomer spending wave theory, which suggests that once baby-boomers' children leave home, the baby boomers pay down debt and save for retirement, spending less.
To overcome these difficulties, the paper uses surface impendent theory to get eigen-equations of TE and TM modes and applies transmission and coupling wave theory to obtain the first order transmission line equations with mode coupling coefficients.
