Extraction of fundamental signal information-Fourier full cycle algorithm

After filtering my noisy input signal using an anti-aliasing and FIR filter, I now wish to get the basic signal information (peak voltage and impedance; $R$ and $X$) from the pre-filtered as well as ...

How to remove historical values from exponential filter

Suppose I have two time series $A:=[0,0,0,4,5,6]$ and $B:=[1,2,3,4,5,6]$. I implement the following filter (with initial value at the first element): $$ f(t) = f(t-1) + \alpha*(f(t)-f(t-1))$$ with ...

Moving average on the frequency domain - (Welch's Method?)

Is there a name for a filter that is using a moving average on the frequency domain? I am searching for such a filter to filter out long "pads" (synths) from music. Do any of you know about such ...

Is there an algorithm for second order filtering of data where the filter frequency is not known a priori?

It is well known that a moving average algorithm done in the time domain is equivalent to a filter with frequency response $\mathrm{sinc}(\omega\tau)$ where $\tau$ is the averaging time. (see this ...

Gain function calculation (frequency response)

Define moving average process $y_t := 0.5 x_t + 0.5 x_{t-1}$ where $x_t := e^{i2 \pi t}$. Its frequency response is then: $$H(f) = 0.5 + 0.5 e^{-i2\pi f}$$ Recall that the frequency response in ...
