Ideal Vibrating String Model

We know already how to model a string as a bidirectional delay line with

This model is based on traveling waves and the superposition of traveling waves as experimental fact. In such a model, sound-speed must be measured experimentally.

We now take our string model to the next level based on the physics of ideal strings:
