- noun the shape of a wave, especially the graphic representation of its characteristics such as frequency or amplitude relative to time
- The shape, or a graphical representation of such a shape, of a wave. A waveform follows the instantaneous values of the amplitude, or other periodically-varying quantity, of a wave as a function of time. common waveforms include those of sine, square, and sawtooth waves, although waveforms may also be complex, aperiodic, and so on. Also called waveshape.
