Definition of Harmonic

pertaining to harmony | pleasant to hear; harmonious; melodious | (mathematics) used to characterize various mathematical entities or relationships supposed to bear some resemblance to musical consonance

- One of these receivers pointed to the
**harmonic**telegraph and the other to the speaking telephone. - Conjugate diameters of the hyperbola are
**harmonic**conjugates with respect to the asymptotes. - Corresponding rays of the involution are
**harmonic**conjugates with respect to the double rays. - The transmission of
**harmonic**sounds by electricity underlies the principle of the telephone. - An
**harmonic**passing-tone is the second of three tones belonging to the same chord. - It is permitted on the weak beat when the lower is treated as an
**harmonic**passing-tone. - Also, conjugate diameters are
**harmonic**conjugates with respect to the asymptotes. - Given four lines in the plane, to construct another which shall meet them in four
**harmonic**points. - An Harmonic interval is the difference in pitch between two tones sounding at the same time.
- In this process of complication lie the infinite
**harmonic**possibilities of sound as well as of colour. - This is only one of scores of instances where a knowledge of the
**harmonic**structure proves to be of constant importance to the student. - The octave
**harmonic**only is obtainable on this instrument owing to the great length of the bore and its large calibre. - Their modern spirit was best shown in their search for the significance of line in its
**harmonic**relation to colour and tone. - In such cases inversion sometimes produces
**harmonic**variety as well as a sense of melodic identity in difference. - It is not difficult to see that the double-points in the involution are
**harmonic**conjugates with respect to corresponding points in the involution. - A novel form of double transmission was invented by the writer soon after the completion of the
**harmonic**system, and was an outgrowth of it. - I designed and constructed another form of receiver, based somewhat upon the theory of the
**harmonic**telegraph.
