  Encyclopedia: List of wave topics
In acoustics and telecommunication, the harmonic of a wave is a component frequency of the signal that is an integer multiple of the fundamental frequency.
Longitudinal waves, also referred to as compressional waves or pressure waves, are waves that have vibrations along or parallel to their direction of travel and can be a wave in which the motion of the medium is in the same direction to the motion of the wave.
Waves with the same phase Waves with different phases The phase of a wave relates the position of a feature, typically a peak or a trough of the waveform, to that same feature in another part of the waveform (or, which amounts to the same, on a second waveform).

 Wave - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Waves are characterised by crests (highs) and troughs (lows), either literally (in the case of transverse waves) or in a graph of particles per cm against time (in the case of longitudinal waves).
The amplitude of a wave is the measure of the magnitude of the maximum disturbance in the medium during one wave cycle, and is measured in units depending on the type of wave.
For examples, waves on a string have an amplitude expressed as a distance (meters), sound waves as pressure (pascals) and electromagnetic waves as the amplitude of the electric field (volts/meter).

 Wave - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A wave is a disturbance that propagates in a periodically repeating fashion, often transfering energy.
A mechanical wave exists in a medium (which on deformation is capable of producing elastic restoring forces) through which they travel and can transfer energy from one place to another without any of the particles of the medium being displaced permanently; there is no associated mass transport.
Waves are characterised by crests (highs) and troughs (lows), either perpendicular (in the case of transverse waves) or parallel (in the case of longitudinal waves) to wave motion.

 Wave   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Rippless on the surface of a pond are actually a combination of transverse and longitudinal waves; therefore, the points on the surface follow elliptical paths.
Waves that remain in one place are called standing waves - eg vibrations on a violin string.
The wave equation is a differential equation which describes a harmonic wave passing through a certain medium.

 Alfvén wave - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A cluster of double layers forming in an Alfvén wave, about a sixth of the distance from the left.
An Alfvén wave in a plasma is a traveling oscillation of the ions and the magnetic field.
The wave propagates in the direction of the magnetic field, although waves exist at oblique incidence and smoothly change into the magnetosonic wave when the propagation is perpendicular to the magnetic field.

Longitudinal waves, also referred to as compressional waves or pressure waves, are waves that have vibrations along or parallel to their direction of travel.
For sound waves, the amplitude of the wave is the difference between the pressure of the undisturbed air and the maximum pressure caused by the wave.
Maxwell's equations lead to the prediction of electromagnetic waves in a vacuum, which are transverse (in that the electric fields and magnetic fields vary perpendicularly to the direction of propagation).

Apart from electromagnetic radiation, and probably gravitational radiation, which can travel through vacuum, waves exist in a medium (bearer)medium (which on deformation is capable of producing elastic restoring forces) through which they travel and can transfer energy from one place to another without any of the particles of the medium being displaced permanently; i.e.
Sound - a mechanical wave that propagates through air, liquid or solids, and is of a frequency detected by the earauditory system.
The amplitude may be constant (in which case the wave is a ''c.w.'' or ''continuous wave'') or may vary with time and/or position.
