In the sediments examined, non-undulatory quartz predominated over undulatory quartz, and we detected a smaller percentage of polycrystalline quartz (Qnu/Qu/Qp2-3/Qp>3 = 71/18/6/5), suggesting a gneissic-plutonic provenance (Basu et al.
The stiffness that we predict for good swimming characteristics is, in fact, the same as the experimentally determined stiffness of undulatory swimmers with a backbone," Amneet Bhalla, graduate student in mechanical engineering at McCormick and one of the paper's authors, said.
Gillis (2000) showed that Anguilla rostrata moving in the terrestrial environment also use more exaggerated undulatory movements than they use in water.

Bell's first telephone patent, in 1876, had modestly announced an "Improvement in Telegraphy," a mere modification of the older technology, but the technical description it contained pointed to a fundamental innovation in its method of transmission: "My present invention consists in the employment of a vibratory or undulatory current of electricity in contradistinction to a merely intermittent or pulsatory current.

Deleuze explains: "the disciplinary man was a discontinuous producer of energy, but the man of control is undulatory, in orbit, in a continuous network.
