| | In the case of Single-sideband modulation (SSB) the **carrier** is suppressed and must be reintroduced at the receiver by a beat frequency oscillator (BFO.) Frequency modulation (FM) is a form of modulation which represents information as variations in the instantaneous frequency of a **carrier** **wave**. |

| | In trigonometry, an ideal sine **wave** is a waveform whose graph is identical to the generalized sine function y = Asin[ω(x − α)] + C, where A is the amplitude, ω is the angular frequency (2π/P where P is the wavelength), α is the phase shift, and C is the... |

| | In telecommunication, a **carrier** system (loosely, a synonym with **carrier**) is a multichannel telecommunications system in which a number of individual circuits (data, voice, or combination thereof) are multiplexed for transmission between nodes of a network. |
