### Books and references virtual microphone

What are some applications of virtual microphones (as in here http://sail.usc.edu/aigaion2/index.php/attachments/single/119.)? Are there good references (books or comprehensive tutorial papers) for ...

### Alignment of signals for ensemble averaging? Something else?

I have been applying ensemble averaging (adding signals of different trials to obtain one signal) to improve Signal to noise ratio in my data. I have achieved good results in terms of classification ...

### Doppler frequency to radial velocity in a given bandwidth

given the Bandwidth of the signal (say 20MHz) and Doppler frequency ranging from -100KHz to 100KHz for the Auto Correlation 2D plot. Can somebody kindly explain me what is the radial velocity with a ...

### Goodness of fit for complex valued curves (i.e. frequency responses in frequency domain)

My apologies for perhaps the stupidity of this question. Presume that one has the 'frequency response' $Y_{data}(k)$ of a system and also has an estimated model $Y_{syn}(k)$ that fits the data. How ...

### Wavelet transform in MATLAB

Suppose I have a wave with $20 \textrm{ kHz}$, $100 \textrm{ kHz}$ and $300 \textrm{ kHz}$. Sampling frequency used is $1000 \textrm{ kHz}$. I apply the discrete wavelet transform on the wave like <...

### How do we find the Power Spectrum Density (PSD) and which data type is valid for that?

I want a simple explanation on how to find PSD and which type of data (in which units, I mean) can be used for doing so. If found similar interesting questions 1 & 2 and some on Mathworks, like ...

### FFT of an acceleration response signal?

I am working to solve an equation of motion in simulink. I run the simulation for 10 seconds and got a plot for disturbance torque. The plot shows me 10s on x-axis with some magnitude of signal on y-...

### Implementing Welch's method for Power Spectral Density

I want to implement Welch's method for PSD calculation in MATLAB. I do not want to use built in MATLAB cpsd function, such that I can change the FFT implementation ...

### Methods for calculating signal quality metric

i'm sure this is a fairly large topic area, but I'm not quite sure where to start. I have a signal in which I can change several parameters, such as the frequency, gain, etc. The modulation is a ...

### Useful natural “Hilbert-like” $n$-uples and $n$-fold "analytic signals

If $\mathcal{H}$ denotes the Hilbert transform, the analytic signal of a signal $x(t)$ is $$x_a(t) = x(t) +\imath \mathcal{H}(x(t))\,.$$ The real and imaginary parts form Hilbert pairs. Are there ...

### How do I correctly receive a signal using a signal analyzer?

For the past few weeks, I have been trying to send a Zaddof Chu signal using a vector signal generator, and receive it using a signal analyzer. Both devices are made by R&S. However, the signal ...

### How to detect decaying oscillations in a signal

I have a sampled signal which contains (among other things) some damped oscillations. From the underlying theory I have reasons to believe that it can be characterized by some specific frequencies of ...

### Determining the fundamental frequency/pitch of a note

What I am trying to achieve is getting the fundamental frequency of a note played by an instrument. What I have already done is performing an FFT on a samples of audio file, and here's what I get: ...

### Cyclic prefix vs. guard interval. Why use one over the other?

I'm currently studying some OFDM techniques, and have found that in order to avoid Inter-Symbol Interference (ISI), there needs to be some space in between symbols. Lets assume this length to be $\mu$....

### Definition of energy of a signal

I was wondering why the energy of a signal is defined as $$E=\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}|x(t)|^2dt$$ I mean, I know that it is a definition, but is there a physical reason for it being defined like that?...

### GPS signal acquisition

I have a set of GPS satellite signal data, the set is 1 ms long and has the information of two satellites (satellite number, code phase and frequency) buried in noise. This data has a carrier ...

### Division of complex signal by frequency response

I have a measured signal (time domain) which i take the fft of. I have a measured frequency dependent sensitivity (magnitude and phase (radians) as a function of frequency) which I need to apply to ...

### Confusion with regards to units in Sinc pulse

I am currently reading a section in the Handbook for MRI Pulse Sequence book where it says that the time-bandwidth product for a SINC pulse is given by: $$T \Delta f = Z$$ where $T$ is the length ...
