Love wave

n.
A type of seismic surface wave that causes rock particles to move with a side-to-side motion perpendicular to the direction of an earthquake's main propagation. Love waves travel faster than Rayleigh waves. Also called L wave.

[After Augustus Edward Hough Love (1863-1940), British mathematician.]
