Subjecting a waveform to some sort of mathematical transformation, which is repeated each cycle, such that the shape of the waveform (as seen on a scope) is changed, but without changing the fundamental frequency. A simple example is clipping, as commonly occurs in overdriven amplifiers and guitar fuzz boxes. Clipping "flat tops" the signal, limiting it to a minimum and/or maximum value.
