The proposed technology makes it possible to control the hole size and configuration, hence there is a tool to control the amplitude of a wave scattered by each hole.
Предлагаемая технология позволяет регулировать размер и конфигурацию отверстий, а значит, имеется инструмент, позволяющий управлять амплитудой волны, рассеянной каждым отверстием.
There are therefore only two possible ways of describing a state by a wave function, viz. either by the symmetrical or the antisymmetrical wave function;
Таким образом, имеются только две возможности описать состояние системы частиц с помощью волновой функции — нужно пользоваться либо симметричной, либо антисимметричной формой.

It seemed to Andrey Yefimitch as though a huge salt wave enveloped him from his head downwards and dragged him to the bed; there really was a salt taste in his mouth: most likely the blood was running from his teeth.
Андрею Ефимычу показалось, что громадная соленая волна накрыла его с головой и потащила к кровати; в самом деле, во рту было солоно: вероятно, из зубов пошла кровь.

Now the probability density F (a summed) is the same for both F and F, so that they have the same dynamical properties which we shall determine by deriving the equation satisfied by the positive energy wave function F.
Далее плотность вероятности F (суммирование по а) одинакова для F и F, так что они имеют совпадающие динамические свойства. Мы найдем эти свойства, выведя уравнение, которому удовлетворяет волновая функция F с положительной энергией.

The object of the invention is also attained due to the fact that the surfaces of the massaging elements opposite to the extension direction of the corresponding cleaning element are wave-shaped.
Поставленная задача решается и тем, что поверхности массирующих элементов, противоположные направлению расширения соответствующего очищающего элемента, выполнены волнообразными.
The whole wave keeps moving, and even the vanguard of an earlier century (T. H. Huxley is the obvious example) would find itself way behind the laggers of a later century.
Волна продолжает свой бег, и даже авангард начала ХХ века (ярким представителем которого является Т. Г. Гексли) уже безнадёжно отстал от нынешнего "обоза".

But reflecting that it would be impossible to take it back now and that in any case he would not have taken it, he dismissed it with a wave of his hand and went back to his lodging.
Но рассудив, что взять назад уже невозможно и что все-таки он и без того бы не взял, он махнул рукой и пошел на свою квартиру.

Vyatcheslav Ilarionovitch does not read much; when he is reading he incessantly works his moustaches and eyebrows up and down, as if a wave were passing from below upwards over his face.
Читает Вячеслав Илларионыч мало, при чтении беспрестанно поводит усами и бровями, сперва усами, потом бровями, словно волну снизу вверх по лицу пускает.

In fact, the requirement of satisfying the correspondence principle, combined with indivisibility, the wave-particle duality, and incomplete determinism, will be seen to define the quantum theory in an almost unique manner.
Действительно, это требование в сочетании с дискретностью, корпускулярно-волновым дуализмом и статистическим характером квантовых законов, как мы увидим, определяет квантовую теорию почти однозначно.

His spirits plummeted sickeningly as Lorimer stepped forward, still radiating a wave of icy cold air after making his spells.
Дух скиплинга тотчас упал, а Лоример ступил вперед – от него все еще исходил ледяной воздух заклятий.

This wave was also distinct from all those which preceded it because no one fussed about with taking the head of the family first and then working out what to do with the rest of the family.
Поток этот отличался от всех предыдущих еще и тем, что здесь не цацкались брать сперва главу семьи, а там посмотреть, как быть с остальной семьей.

Here k is the wave number of the transmitted sound.
Здесь k - волновое число излучаемого звука.
According to Born and more than half a century of subsequent experiments, the wave nature of matter implies that matter itself must be described fundamentally in a probabilistic manner.
Согласно утверждению Борна, подкрепленному собранными более чем за полвека экспериментальными данными, наличие у материи волновых свойств подразумевает, что фундаментальное описание материи должно иметь вероятностный характер.
