This reminds us of the fact that in acoustics, a series of discrete frequency values is coordinated to a linear partial differential equation (if boundary values are given) namely the sinusoidal periodic solutions.
Unlike laboratory stimuli such as sinusoidal grating or the Gabor patch, natural images generally contain signals broadly distributed over different spatial frequencies.
Then we examine the system response to sinusoidal input signals with varying frequencies to determine if the cell can distinguish between different regimes of information flow from the environment.
For every line in order, perform a nonlinear regression to fit the line to an equation y = b0 + b1x + b2 (1. 1-x) b3 [+b4 sin (2πx + b5)] where the sinusoidal portion is optional for each page.
A surface function that is sinusoidal at the bottom and grades smoothly to a straight course of bricks at the top gives a pleasing curtain effect.

Born in Tel Aviv and trained at the Jerusalem Academy of Art, followed by the Architectural Association School in London, Ron Arad settled in London in 1973, where he has since produced a very varied range of creative objects based on sinusoidal, elliptical and oval forms, as unique pieces, limited series and mass-produced objects.
You bust out 'cuboid,' setting all my nerve endings a-tingle, but then use the limp 'perfectly sine regularity' in lieu of say the throbbing 'perfect sinusoidal regularity' or the magnificently necropriapic 'cold dead sinusoidal character'?
The ghost got up gracefully and at once started doing standing pirouettes, the linen whipping up in errant waves sinusoidal, sending ripples of air circlets, crowning the room.
