antinode

[′an·tə‚nōd]
(astronomy)
Either of the two points on an orbit where a line in the orbit plane, perpendicular to the line of nodes and passing through the focus, intersects the orbit.
(physics)
A point, line, or surface in a standing-wave system at which some characteristic of the wave has maximum amplitude. Also known as loop.

There are clear structural differences between warm and cold winters, namely the extension of the antinodes. The Eurasian centre of action is spatially confined to the European sector for warm winters, whereas it extends along the entire Eurasian continent and North Atlantic and presents two maxima for cold winters, which is suggestive of an additional contribution to the perturbation (quasi-wavenumber-2).
This latter was maintained stretched between the antinode positions of the first free-free mode.
At the same time, joints between the ring cavity and two straight MIM waveguides are antinodes, and there is a higher magnetic field intensity in two straight MIM waveguides.
I've figured out when the peacocking paepi I stop and photograph at Seoul Fashion Week are socially unusual antinodes, who themselves define and are defined by normal, non-peacocking people who are the nodes.
The measured points are the antinodes with the largest amplitude.
The leaked signal from an amplifier will always have "antinodes" at specific sites where that signal is at its greatest amplitude, and "nodes" where it has no amplitude at all.
It is well known that the amplitude ratio of forward and backward propagating mode determines the amplitude of the antinodes. Therefore it is ensured that the profile of the perturbation would determine the amount of localized SP.
The modes [E.sup.x.sub.pq] (p, q = 1, 2, 3 ...; p and q denote the number of antinodes of the electric field in the x and y direction, respectively), where the electric field is polarized mainly along the x direction, are equivalent to TE modes in Fig.
Not that they exist elsewhere, beyond our grasp, but because we are experiences, that is, thoughts that feel behind themselves the weight of the space the time, the very Being they think, and which therefore do not hold under their gaze a serial space and time nor the pure idea of series, but have about themselves a time and a space that exist by piling up, by proliferation, by encroachment, by promiscuity--a perpetual pregnancy, perpetual parturition, generativity and generality, brute essence and brute existence, which are the nodes and antinodes of the same ontological vibration.
Cutting wedges of grinding wheel are positioned in resonance ultrasound wave systems antinodes of longitudinal stagnancy oscillation.
A photon is a unit (packet) of energy from standing half waves at the antinodes where the speed of light is relative to infinity and mass is part of infinity.
