# How to calculate pitch fundamental frequency f( 0) ) in time domain?

I am new in DSP, trying to calculate fundamental frequency ( f(0) ) for each segmented frame of the audio file. The methods of F0 estimation can be divided into three categories:

• based on temporal dynamics of the signal time-domain;
• based on the frequency structure frequency-domain, and
• hybrid methods.

Most of the examples are estimating fundamental frequency based on the frequency structure frequency-domain, I am looking for based on temporal dynamics of the signal time-domain.

This article provides some information but I am still not clear how to calculate it in the time domain?

This is the code, I have found, used so far :

def freq_from_autocorr(sig, fs):
"""
Estimate frequency using autocorrelation
"""
# Calculate autocorrelation and throw away the negative lags
corr = correlate(sig, sig, mode='full')
corr = corr[len(corr)//2:]

# Find the first low point
d = diff(corr)
start = nonzero(d > 0)

# Find the next peak after the low point (other than 0 lag).  This bit is
# not reliable for long signals, due to the desired peak occurring between
# samples, and other peaks appearing higher.
# Should use a weighting function to de-emphasize the peaks at longer lags.
peak = argmax(corr[start:]) + start
px, py = parabolic(corr, peak)

return fs / px
