The rotational wave is computed according to the transformation method, as mentioned above.
Here the rotational wave is given as a solution to the field equations (9)-(12), and the line of the maximum shear stress runs along the boundary of a pair of unlike rotations (a of mutually opposite signs.) The fourth field equation (12 assures that unlike rotations always pair.
The rotation tensor [[omega].sup.[mu]v] satisfies a wave equation known as the rotational wave equation [6, see p.
