complex frequency

complex frequency

[′käm‚pleks ′frē·kwən·sē]
(engineering)
A complex number used to characterize exponential and damped sinusoidal motion in the same way that an ordinary frequency characterizes simple harmonic motion; designated by the constant s corresponding to a motion whose amplitude is given by Aest, where A is a constant and t is time.
