### A Machine Learning Based Algorithm as an Alternative to the Matched Filter

Consider we have to detect a known signal added with Gaussian noise. In this scenario, the matched filter is known to be an optimal filter for SNR. The question: is there any machine learning ...

### Noise model as Sinc function

In "Fundamentals of signal processing: estimation theory", example 3.13 Kay has used a model of band-limited Gaussian noise with a uniform PSD and a sinc autocorrelation function. I expected ...

### Real time estimation of room impulse response using the sine sweep method

I am working on real time Room Impulse Response estimation using sine sweep. $x(n)$ is my sine sweep signal. $f(n)$ is its amplitude modulated inverse. $beep$ consists of 3 sine sweeps with a delay ...

### Radar beamforming receiver combining vector estimation

I don't have much experience with radar signals. I know in the cellular system, the channel directional vector can be estimated using pilot symbols based on MMSE, EW-MMSE, and LS. Then, we can use the ...

### Estimating Correlation Matrices

I am trying to obtain the correlation matrices of two random signals. Both of them, $X$ and $Y$, are white Gaussian Noise, with unitary variance. However, they are correlated, with correlation ...

### Methods for time series estimation in time domain

I am trying to estimate the clean form of a time series, $u(t)$ that is corrupted by additive White Gaussian noise $w(t)$ at a particular SNR. The received signal is: $$y(t) = u(t) + w(t)$$ My first ...

### Estimate the Image Using Multi Realizations of Its Convolution with a Known Filters Using Wiener Filter

Suppose we have a corrupted image $Y = H*X + \epsilon$ formed by taking an image $X$, convolving it with a point-spread function $H$, and adding gaussian noise $\epsilon$. Then we know that the Wiener ...

### Why, for a musical instrument, the first harmonic has more power than the fundamental and last longer?

In analyzing the audio recording of a string instrument, I am struggling with pitch estimation. I am using the pYIN algorithm and every pitch estimation I'm obtaining is off by one octave. I assume ...

### Estimate and Track the Amplitude, Frequency and Phase of a Sine Signal Using a Kalman Filter

There is sinusoidally controlled signal, which other than being noisy, can change values for amplitude, frequency, phase and offset. At every new sample a new sine is fitted for the last N samples. ...

### Phase offset analysis in real trsnsmitted signal

Assume we are transmitting a real signal $x(t)$ through a channel $h$ in passband as : $y(t) = x(t)cos(2πf_c t + ∅) * h(t)$ = $Re(x(t)e^{j2πf_c t})*h(t)$ where $f_c$ is the carrier frequency and $t$...

### How Are Unmeasured Properties (Velocity and Covariance of Velocity) Handled with a Kalman Filter?

I'm trying to understand how I can update a Kalman filter with a state variable for position and velocity when I only measure position. I have a covariance matrix of the position measurements. But ...
