Depending on the amount of clipping, the waveform of a very distorted signal can approach a square wave. Mathematically, a square wave is an infinite sum of overtones, with each higher overtone at a lower intensity than the previous. Near the bottom of this page is the infinite sum of a mathematically exact square wave:
