### Issues with the smoothing operator in coherence estimation using the complex Morlet (Gabor) wavelet

The goal I wish to compute the coherence estimate using the continuous wavelet transform (CWT) of a real-valued signal with the complex Morlet (a.k.a. Gabor) wavelet. I compute the cwt of the signal ...

### Spatial resampling, how to smooth?

Sorry if this is not the right forum. Having a velocity grid in which a wave propagates, and given a certain spatial sampling of the grid, what kind of smoothing/interpolation should be used if the ...

### Computationally 'lightweight' smoothing in realtime

I have a pitch tracker that can be quite unsmooth in its output (in Hz). A Savitzky-Golay filter has been good at smoothing but it looks like it adds a lot of multiplies on top of the already ...

### What are the kernels that are used in the Smooted Psuedo Wigner-Ville distribution?

Defined in Matlab's docs for WVD, SPWVD is given by: $\int_{-\infty}^\infty g(t) * H(f) x(t + \frac{\tau}{2}) x^*(t - \frac{\tau}{2}) e^{-j2\pi\tau\,f} \, d\tau$ H(f) and g(t) are the smoothing ...
