Amplitude vs Beamforming - What's the difference?

amplitude | beamforming |


As nouns the difference between amplitude and beamforming

is that amplitude is amplitude (mathematics, physics) while beamforming is (physics) a technique in which the phase and amplitude of transmitted signals are modified, by a feedback process, in order to improve transmission speed.

amplitude

Noun

(en noun)
  • The measure of something's size, especially in terms of width or breadth; largeness, magnitude.
  • * Fuller
  • The cathedral of Lincoln is a magnificent structure, proportionable to the amplitude of the diocese.
  • * Milton
  • amplitude of mind
  • * Macaulay
  • amplitude of comprehension
  • (mathematics) The maximum absolute value of the vertical component of a curve or function, especially one that is periodic.
  • (physics) The maximum absolute value of some quantity that varies.
  • (astronomy) The arc of the horizon between the true east or west point and the center of the sun, or a star, at its rising or setting. At the rising, the amplitude is eastern or ortive: at the setting, it is western, occiduous, or occasive. It is also northern or southern, when north or south of the equator.
  • (astronomy) The arc of the horizon between the true east or west point and the foot of the vertical circle passing through any star or object.
  • (firearms) The horizontal line which measures the distance to which a projectile is thrown; the range.
