# 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.

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.
