### Smoothing of Log Data Plots in Octave

I have some frequency based data that I'm plotting with Octave's semilogx that looks like this: The amplitude of peaks does not increase with frequency over the linear scale. But with a log scale, ...

### is there upper limit on averaging window size for images?

An amateur question. I take an image and average pixels over a window 3 by 3, thus obtaining a smoother image. Then I increase the averaging window size - obtain an image with even less details, but ...

### Bit accuracy improvement versus sample averaging

Supposing we have multiple samples of a scaled signal $x$ given by $y_i=a_ix+n_i$ where $n_i$ is AWGN how does the bit accuracy of estimation of $x$ improve with averaging of samples $y_i$ (number of ...

### Recoverable continuous function after average sampling

I have a personal interest in this question, but I don't know if it is unfounded. Suppose I have a continuous function x (t), which is sampled using an average sliding window, which performs a ...

### Coherent averaging of polyphase components of a signal

I want to subsample a multi-band signal to introduce controlled aliasing. My frequency components are uniformly distributed across the spectrum (comb structure) and occupy a relatively narrow ...
Lets say I have a system where I have a small sample of a signal with no noise $\hat{x}(t)$ and a lot of a similar signal with noise $y(t) = \hat{x}(t) + n(t)$, and from $\hat{x}(t)$ I want to create ...
