Wave patterns. Computer artwork of wave patterns based on the sine wave. The sine wave is the basic periodic wave function. Waves are used in numerous areas of mathematics and physics to describe many different processes, including quantum waveform descriptions of electron distributions. When waves are confined to move in an area like the box here, then patterns of overlapping waves can form.
