### Use Scale Space Representation to Filter Single Image

Currently I hope to use scale space representation to filter one image. Features in one image can be filtered using an Gaussian smooth filter with one optimal sigma. It means different features in one ...

### How to get sigma of gaussian from accelerometer noise ug/sqrt(HZ)

I'm trying to model an accelerometer with gaussian noise in my application. The actual accelerometer has the following specs: ...

### Determine Gaussian distribution parameters from the signal-to-noise ratio

Is there a straightforward formula for determining the mean and standard deviation of the gaussian distribution followed by noise applied on an image, knowing the signal-to-noise ratio between the ...

### Is splitting single white gaussian noise samples-stream in multiple sample-streams still gaussian noises?

Suppose I have a random generator that generates gaussian distributed samples (mean = 0, variance = sigma) at a rate of 4*N samples per second. I want to generate 4 different streams from this ...

### AWGN for a specific dBc

I have a square-ware signal with 1V peak-to-peak (alternating between -500 and +500mV, so its absolute value is a constant 500mV) and I would like to add to this an AWGN expressed in dBc ("decibels ...

### How would I modify a squared-exponential covariance kernel to be periodic?

I want to create a Gaussian process that resembles one generated by an exponential kernel (smooth and with a lot of variance) with a single caveat: I need the final value to be the same as the initial ...

### Introduction to IP : Laplacian of Gaussian?

I am very new to the concept of computer vision (and image processing), and trying to understand the algorithm used for edge detection. One thing I'm currently struggling to figure out is the ...

### Applying a Power on a Sum of Gaussians to Enhance Resolution

There is so-called Power Transform technique in signal processing where the unresolved signal is sharpened by raising each data to a constant positive power. The example shown below is a sum of two ...

### Why is second-order Gaussian called Laplacian Gaussian?

We usually use Laplacian of Gaussian as the filter for edge detection or blob detection. But the filter itself is essentially a second order Gaussian. So why do we call it Laplacian of Gaussian? Is ...

### When should the sum of all elements of a gaussian kernel be zero?

I found an approximation of a 5x5 2D convolution kernel like this : Here, the sum of the elements is zero and this one was used for Laplacian of Gaussian! Another one here : This one has all ...

### Band Limit in Gaussian Pyramid

In the paper The Laplacian Pyramid as a Compact Image Code, it says The pyramid algorithm reduces the filter band limit by an octave from level to level. How is the conclusion drawn? Is this related ...

### What is DC level in white gaussian noise?

Am studying unbiased estimators and keep seeing this term "DC Level". What is the expansion of DC and what is a DC Level? Even the Wikipedia page on WGN says nothing about it.

### Conditions for symmetric and unimodal windows in both time and frequency domains

After a lecture on harmonic analysis and time/frequency methods, I reconsidered the Gaussian kernel, defined in continuous time. It is unimodal and symmetric, and its continuous Fourier transform is ...

### Audio experiment with intermodulation by multiplying two analytic signals

1) First, I describe intended processing with a basic case: Let's say on left channel I have a sin wave with frequency F1, and constant amplitude A1. Then on right channel a sin wave with frequency ...

### Low-Pass FIR that keeps all values positive

Let's say, that I want to low-pass the norm (hence positive values) of an analytic signal (related to Hilbert transform). This allows me to perform experiments with the envelope of audio. For low-...

### Gaussian Energy Broadening implementation to meet detector response

Respected Coding experts, I am trying to perform Gaussian broadening on an energy spectrum. The final result should convert "specrum.png" to a similar form of "Exp.png". The method is explained in ...

### Acoustic features

I am working on an automatic sound recognition project. I found that the LDA performs better than the SVMs. Does this mean that the acoustic features are Gaussian distributed? Also, is this the ...

### Time derivative of signal - effect on noise distribution

I have an angular velocity measurement that has a certain amount of ripple that yields an histogram shaped like a gaussian curve. I quantify that ripple using a standard deviation. I am interested in ...
