As this article's main text explores, one answer involves the rate of negative acceleration (deceleration) over time/distance.
where [[alpha].sub.-max] is the preset negative acceleration limit, not necessarily equal to positive acceleration limit [a.sub.max].
The core of such a detector is a rotating body (made from metal or ceramics) in the state of negative acceleration. Besides the advantage of the whole system is that is gives a possibility for easy registration of the direction of the gravitation wave moved through it.
