### Calculation of the discrete cosine transform

I am wanting to use the discrete cosine transform to relate the autocovariance function of a process to its periodogram. Following Chris Chatfield's book (Time Series Analysis, p129), I am wanting to ...

### Unexpected frequency components found in Periodogram

I am trying to make sense of Digital Signal Processing with the help of R language. So, the issue came up when I tried to create a periodogram for a simple sine wave. The regular periodogram shows 2 ...

### MATLAB & Power Spectral Density - Error - Getting the same range of values regardless of sound type?

I wrote code [attached at end of question] to take .wav files of child vocalizations and tried to see if there are valid ranges for the formants F1:F2:F3 for the 5 ...

### Normalizing vectors to be the same size to retain PSD data

Context: PSD=periodogram(y) in MATLAB gives the PSD (power spectral density) estimate of a sound-source signal. I want to find the local maximum within 3 different ...

### Making sense of the periodogram

I am trying to use the periodogram to tell when a signal is periodic or not by following the tutorial for the astropy Lomb-scargle periodogram here. http://docs.astropy.org/en/stable/stats/...

### How can I improve my fit of cosines to periodic data using Python?

I have a space-separated csv file containing a measurement. First column is the time of measurement, second column is the corresponding measured value, third column ...

### Periodogram and Welch periodogram comparison

I'm trying to compute the PSD using the periodogram method. I have a signal that is periodical at 5kHz. The frequency resolution sought for is 1.221Hz. It's a PRBS signal that has its energy drop to ...

Let $s(t)= \sum_{i=0}^{T} \delta(t-\tau_i)$, where $\{ \tau_{i} \}$ are random integers between $0,1,\cdots, T-1$. What is the power spectral density of the signal $s(t)$?
