### What wavelet should i use to analyze harmonic function?

If i have the following signal: $$s(t) = cos\left [ t\cdot \left (\frac{a}{2}t+b \right ) \right ]$$ What is the best family of wavelet to analize the signal, and what is its scale range? Do i ...

### “Sinusoidal” in DSP terminology

This is probably a bad question but I'll ask anyway because I'm often confused by it. Many textbooks explain how the movement of $z$ around the unit circle can be broken up into a sine wave along the ...

### Rearranging exp terms

I have some problems rearranging exp terms to receive a cos or sin. I guess the solution is silly but I‘m not able to spot my mistake. I know the solution (since i looked it up with wolfram alpha) ...

### Replacing “e” in Euler's formula with another number

Does Euler's formula remain valid if we use any real number other than the constant $e$? For example replacing $e$ with 5 would make the formula look like this: $5^{it}$. I tried this idea in ...

### Validating cross corrolation between sine and cos, shouldn't pahse lag be pi/2?

I am trying to use cross correlation instead of FFT to find lags between 2 signals. I am trying to understand cross correlation by using it on sin and cos and expecting phase lag to be pi/2 but it is ...
