### What is the “Energy” equivalent of the Magnitude Spectrum

I have a semantic issue regarding the discrete spectrum $X[k]$ of a time domain signal with limited length $x[n]$, so we're talking about the FFT. Now, when I what to compare the bandwidth and ...

### Energy of audio signal

From audio file [y,FS]=something.wav So the y is typically N cross 2 matrix I want calculate energy so i.e sum(abs(y.^2)) So when I apply these I end with two answer for each column. So I want ...

### Simultaneously minimize and maximize two cost functions

I want to solve the following optimization problem, in which I have two cost functions $J_1 = \mathbf{w}^T R_1 \mathbf{w}$ and $J_2 = \mathbf{w}^T R_2 \mathbf{w}$, where $R_1$ and $R_2$ are covariance ...

### Manipulating line level signals

I need to manage several line level signals (physically, not in software), and need to know what to expect. I was expecting AC signals, but am not quite sure. Are line level audio signals AC or DC? ...

### Bandwith of a energy signal

I'm studying for my finals , and I'm struggling with finding bandwidths. I have this energy spectral density : Ψ(f)=rect(f) , and I need to find the bandwith, 3 dB band and the band with 90 % power. ...

### Analytically determine a PSD from a transient function

This question is related to a series of questions I have asked about the units of PSD and ESDs. I include it as a separate question as it may have worth in isolation. As I understand it to compute ...

### Effect of filtering on Energy of a Digital Signal

I am trying to detect (not remove) noise from the digital signal to get meaningful information out of it. The signal I need is in the frequency range of 0.1 Hz to 10 Hz. Anything beyond this is just ...

### How to compute the energy of a NON-STATIONARY (transient) random discrete-time signal

When computing the energy of a NON-STATIONARY (transient) random discrete-time signal $x(n)$, does it make more sense to compute the energy as $E=\sum_1^N{x^2(n)}$ over all the $N$ samples or does ...

### What's the maximum energy for a finite signal?

I'm trying to calculate the spectral density of a signal. What I'm expecting is a scale in dbFS where 0 dbFS would be the maximal theorical energy if all my signal is concentrated in a single ...

### Does windowing affect Parseval's theorem?

I have computed Fourier transform from ecg data.It does obey Parseval's theorem, relation $$\sum_{n=0}^{N-1} \Big| x[n] \Big|^2 = \frac{1}{N} \sum_{k=0}^{N-1} \Big| X[k] \Big|^2$$ is fulfiled. ...

### How to compute the energy of two signals?

Say I have two signals, one being $g_1(t)$ and the other one being $g_2(t)$, and say that I am being asked to compute the energy of $g_3(t)$, where $$g_3(t) = g_1(t) + g_2(t)$$ Is it correct to ...

### Probability of False Alarm versus SNR

I'm currently testing the performance of an energy detector using two tests. One test involves finding the optimal threshold to achieve a probability of detection(Pd) of 0.9 and a probability of false ...

### why total energy of a finite duration continuous signal becomes infinite after sampling

If I have a continuous-time energy signal and multiply it with an impulse train, the frequency domain representation has infinite replicas. The total energy if we sum them up becomes infinite. What ...

### Integral of the Fourier spectrum?

The integral $$\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}|X(f)|^2df$$ of the absolute Fourier spectrum squared is the energy in the signal, but what about the integral of the 'simple' absolute Fourier spectrum? \...
I'm a beginner so sorry if this question is very fundamental. Dirac impulse has finite area i.e = 1. But I've heard that $|\delta(t)|^2$ is undefined. So area under $|\delta(t)|^2$ is also undefined ...
