- the state or quality of being ample, especially as to breadth or width; largeness; greatness of extent.
- large or full measure; abundance; copiousness.
- mental range, scope, or capacity.
- Physics. the absolute value of the maximum displacement from a zero value during one period of an oscillation.
- Electricity. the maximum deviation of an alternating current from its average value.
- Astronomy. the arc of the horizon measured from the east or west point to the point where a vertical circle through a heavenly body would intersect the horizon.
- Mathematics. argument.
- “We build a shape, and the volume of the shape gives me an amplitude,” said Arkani-Hamed.
- The amplituhedron is a simpler way of calculating amplitudes.
- The somewhat clunky prevailing method for calculating amplitudes is something called a Feynman diagram, named for its inventor, Richard Feynman.
- Instead, they’re described by an amplitude, which is like a probability that the collision plays out in a given way.
- They’ve also shown that three-point amplitudes serve as the building blocks of four- and higher-point amplitudes involving more and more particles.
- Fairly or not, many people see that kind of amplitude of girth as a sign of irresponsibility or lack of discipline or something.
- And Romney spoke at a lower pitch and used more tonal amplitude.
- The proof is wrought out in detail, with great amplitude of evidence, acuteness of argument, and to an irresistible conclusion.
- The intensity of any light depends upon the amplitude of the corresponding vibration, and its color depends upon the wave length.
- Their historic lore and unequaled grandeur give them amplitude and poetry enough to kindle and enrich the imagination.
- The amplitude of a star is its distance from the prime vertical, measured on the horizon, north or south.
- The difference is due to the greater amplitude of vibration caused by more energy being used.
