### How to change the samplimg rate with interpolation and decimation?

I have a wav file at a 44.1KHz. I'm trying to change the sampling frequency to 1.26MHz. For that, I need to use interpolation and decimation, and so I did, but I'm getting odd results back. It seems ...

### EEG peaks do not get identified at the correct frequencies

For my thesis I am re-analyzing a dataset where subjects were visually stimulated with 5.45, 8.57, 12 or 15 Hz. This well-known technique (steady state visual evoked potential) should elicit EEG peaks ...

### What's the correct way to align two signals downsampled at 10 Hz?

I'm trying to build a dataset where one of the features is a signal which has originally been sampled at 500 Hz, while another feature is a signal which was sampled at 100 Hz. I want to downsample ...

### Appropriate Gaussian filter parameters when resizing image

When scaling an image down it is common to first convolve the image with a Gaussian filter. Given a scale factor $0 < s < 1,$ what is an appropriate $\sigma$ to use? For example, if $s = 0.5$ (...

### Downsampling( decimation) theory: additional frequency

I work on a simulation decimation filter: downsampling + filter. My test environment: low data rate receiver, BPSK, square root raised cosine filter with cutoff frequency =0.5, transition bandwidth = ...

### Is there any deterministic downsampling algorithm for audio?

I was trying to use the scipy.decimate function provided in the library, but I had a question - I want a pre-processing algorithm to downsample audio in such a way ...

### In repeated upsampleing and downsampling by 2, how do i calculate the output Y(z)?

For example, if X(z) -> {downsampled by 2} -> {upsampled by 2} -> Y(z) Given that: X(z) = 1+z^2+z^12+z^19 How do I compute the value of Y(z)?

### Loosing information in decimation - without aliasing

We sample each other sample (01010101). Now say we have a signal - that is inside the original sample which has the pattern of (010-1). Decimation gives us 000 for this sub-signal. How to prove this ...

### Relationship between sampling and number of pixels?

In case of digital images, what is the relationship between sampling and number of pixels? For upsampling, the number of pixels increass, and for down sampling, the number of pixels decrease??

### How do you change an instance of dsp.DigitalDownConverter object in MATLAB to work with filters other than the ones it is originally defined with?

If you look at this website: https://www.mathworks.com/help/dsp/ref/dsp.digitaldownconverter-system-object.html you will see an example (with code) that attempts to up convert and down convert a ...

### How and why does downsampling reduces resolution in time

in my Course we talked about filter banks and the prof said that we get reduced resolution in time because of the downsampling after the band-pass filters. Is this because we now have fewer sample ...

### Downsampling issues

I have this data that need to be downsampled so that it can be fed into a classifier. The issue is that I need to downsample from 1000Hz into 20Hz. If you see the graph below, the blue line is the ...

### How is downsampling and low-pass filtering done in MS-SSIM?

I am just studying the Multiscale Strutural Similarity measure for image quality and going through the original paper . I think I understood the basic ides and "regular" structural similarity, but ...

### Can Carrier Offset cause Image Problems

The main reason why we use the Direct conversion receiver with zero IF is that we don't have to deal with the problem of images. For achieving zero IF we need to ensure that the receiver Local ...

### 2D Fourier downsampling

How can one correctly downsample a Fourier 2D matrix of complex numbers ? More precisely, if I have a 2D DFT of an image: x=phantom X=fft2(x) How should I do to ...

### How do wavelet levels depend on one another?

I am working with wavelets for my thesis, and I would like to know if there is an intuitive dependency between the levels of a DWT. To make it clear: The DWT performs a convolution, and then the ...
