Technology / Home Audio / Total Harmonic Distortion (THD): Total harmonic distortion is a measure of the how much a given audio device may distort a signal through the introduction of added harmonics or overtones. These figures are usually given as percentage MORE

Harmonic Function

Science / Tides and Currents / Harmonic Function: In its simplest form, a quantity that varies as the cosine of an angle that increases uniformly with time. It may be expressed by the formula: y = A cos at in which y is a function of time (t), A is a MORE
