Sine

sine

(Science: mathematics) The length of a perpendicular drawn from one extremity of an arc of a circle to the diameter drawn through the other extremity.

The perpendicular itself. See Sine of angle, below. Artificial sines, logarithms of the natural sines, or logarithmic sines. Curve of sines. See sinusoid. Natural sines, the decimals expressing the values of the sines, the radius being unity. Sine of an angle, in a circle whose radius is unity, the sine of the arc that measures the angle; in a right-angled triangle, the side opposite the given angle divided by the hypotenuse. See Trigonometrical function, under Function. Versed sine, that part of the diameter between the sine and the arc.

Origin: LL. Sinus a sine, L. Sinus bosom, used in translating the Ar. Jaib, properly, bosom, but probably read by mistake (the consonants being the same) for an original jiba sine, from Skr. Jiva bowstring, chord of an arc, sine.

Population Growth Represented by Sine Graph?

I dunno, my teacher told me to talk about growth patterns that exhibit a sine graph... I've looked everywhere online to find a graph and a real world example but I just can't find one.

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

Jackbean wrote Anyway, the 300k random mutations are not those SINEs and LINEs, but those making the genomes different, as you might notice, if you wanted. I think, that the retrotransposones are using some kind of homology insertion, so it's pretty much ...
