sine wave

Sinusoidal waveform A waveform of periodic oscillations–eg, in alternating current in which the amplitude of each point in the wave is proportional to the sine of the time from a start point Cardiology An EKG finding described in severe hyperkalemia where the 'P' wave disappears and the QRS complex and 'T' wave merge in an oscillating pattern

(We only consider the predictable part of every future return and ignore the innovation part.) Thus, we decompose every return [r.sub.n] into a collection of decaying cosine waves
Because of this, I use section 4.1 of Muller and Watson (2015) with 10 cosine waves to estimate the long-run covariance matrix.
where, m indicate the number of half cosine waves in x-direction over the plate.
In its simplest form, Fourier analysis decomposes complex periodic functions (such as those perceived as "sound") into the sum of simple sine and cosine waves counted in cycles per second (hertz) (Fourier transform, n.d.).
By simultaneously generating sine and cosine waves, the driver sequentially deforms the piezoelectric elements.
