Bode is usually referred to in the context of engineering and physics as Bode Plot or Bode Diagram. It is a graphical representation used in control system engineering to determine the performance or response of a system. Named after Hendrik Wade Bode, it displays the magnitude and phase of a system's frequency response, i.e., it shows the system’s output response (in dB) over a range of frequencies, and the phase shift (in degrees). It is commonly used in electrical engineering and control theory.
