Is it possible to open up this particular convolution equation?

I have three vectors, $x[n]$, $w[n]$, and $z[n]$. I need to compute: $y[n] = z[n] * \Big(x[n] \cdot w[n] \Big)$. This is easy to do. However, is there a way I can do this by 'opening' up the ...

Match Filter in Time-Frequency domain instead of just Time domain. Redundant, or better?

Assume you have a signal, and within it, some pulses are present. A pulse is a simple tone. You know the pulses' duration, and shape. (Let us assume that a pulse is made of a couple of cycles, and ...

Optimum matched filter without ISI

Given a filter used to shape the digital signal, $p(x)$, and given that we do not want the filter combination to cause any ISI, what "matched" filter, $q(x)$ will maximise the SNR? Matched filters ...
