Simulation of Transverse Standing Waves
Abstract: Solutions of a hyperbolic partial differential equation in one dimension with appropriate initial and boundary conditions are conducive to standing waves. We consider practical initial deformations not reported in literature. Utilizing a Computer Algebra System such as Mathematica we put the formulation into action simulating the standing waves.
