This can be found either by solving the two 2 x 2 sub games or from the abscissae of points.
m define the collocation abscissae, and, unless otherwise stated, we assume these values are fixed for a given problem and mesh.
wavelength ([Lambda]) is replotted on a frequency (f) or wavenumber (v) scale, the original and transformed curves at equal ordinates would have abscissae reciprocally related to [Lambda] - i.e., f = c/[Lambda] or v = 1/[Lambda] - where c is the speed of light in vacuum.
The abscissae [x.sub.i,j] are sample numbers." The ordinates [y.sub.i,j] are 16-bit integers.(12) Continuity between two successive waveforms is guaranteed by stipulating that the endpoint number 0 (first endpoint) in waveform j + 1 is equal to the endpoint number I- 1 (last endpoint) in waveform
