Definitions

  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Dispersive power (Opt) the relative effect of a material in separating the different rays of light by refraction, as when the substance is formed into a prism.

On the left is the dispersion relation in the shock frame indicating the two polarisation branches of the waves, on the right is the wave power in the (kx , ky )-plane.

Given the suppression of order m2 present constraints, the theory in which κ = 3 must be fine-tuned to be viable, because the SUSY-breaking-induced suppression is not powerful enough to eliminate linear modifications in the dispersion relation of electrons.
Lorentz Violation: Motivation and new constraints
Such settings, however, are more the exception than the rule, since nonidentical power characteristics easily arise due to differences in the effect sizes, the dispersion parameters, or the test functions that are employed.
