Intermodulation distortion

Intermodulation distortion: Nonlinear distortion[?] characterized by the appearance, in the output of a device, of frequencies that are linear combinations of the fundamental frequencies and all harmonics present in the input signals.

Note: Harmonic components themselves are not usually considered to characterize intermodulation[?] distortion. When the harmonics are included as part of the distortion, a statement to that effect should be made.
