What are the differences between progressive waves and stationary waves?

The differences between progressive waves and stationary waves are as listed below:

Progressive waves
Stationary waves
The disturbance travels forward.

The disturbances are confined to a particular region.

The amplitude of vibration of each particle is same.
The amplitude is zero at nodes and goes on increasing to become maximum at antinodes.
Energy is transferred forward along the waves.
No transfer of energy is in the medium.
No particles in the medium are at rest.

Particles at the nodes are permanently at rest.
