Mathematical formulas have been derived for characterizing the terrain in terms of the dimension of its power spectral density curve. Also, the slope of the line relating the elevation profile detrending (1) length to some power of the detrended root mean squared (RMS) (2) value is used.
A key end-result or benefit of this dramatic areal density curve is that disc drive manufacturers have also been able to drive down the cost of the disc drives themselves because they can offer higher capacity disc drives using fewer platters, heads, and mechanical parts.
