A graph of a sinusoidal function or sinusoidal oscillation can be obtained and observed by the students (see Figure 5).
This is because such waveform can be given as a series of sinusoidal functions, i.e., i(t) = [[summation].sup.[infinity].sub.n=0][[]sin(n[omega]t + [[theta].sub.n])], where [] and [[theta].sub.n], respectively, stand for peak value and phase of arbitrary nth term of the series, according to the Fourier theorem.
The essential of the proposed method and the SFMFT-based method [14] is to decompose the IF of the signals on some function basis, while the former one is the Bessel functions, and the latter one is the sinusoidal functions. The SFMFT is a parametric approach for the SFM signal estimation proposed in recent years.
In the current study, the general sinusoidal function proposed by Brockwell and Davis (2010) was applied to the MIR data for Panopea generosa and Panopea globosa.
First, a sinusoidal function of the form f(MDT) = [a.sub.0] + [a.sub.1] cos(MDT[omega]) (with the free parameters [a.sub.0], [a.sub.1] and [omega]) was fitted to the daily and the seasonally grouped data using the Trust-Region-Reflective Least Squares Algorithm.
If (11) below and (5) are used together, a sinusoidal function of [gamma] is obtained on motor torque.
1 that the micro-Doppler induced by p and q is the summation of the sinusoidal function's primary term and quadratic term, and its magnitude is modulated by much factors such as precession angle, line of radar's sight and the warhead's size, which is different from what induced under the hypothesis of precessional movement of the scattering centers.
Moreover, this is the process of such mutual payments the value of which is described with the sinusoidal function of time.
The instructor elicits from the students a periodic nature of the motion that suggests sinusoidal function to be applied.
The MTF is strictly the response to parallel lines whose brightness varies from minimum to maximum in a sinusoidal function (Optikos, 1999).
The motor torque is approximately a sinusoidal function of its position error.
