### How to use cross-correlation to find a code sequence?

Problem Description: A given signal $s[n]$ is defined as $$s[n]=a_s\sin(2\pi\nu_sn+\theta),$$ $\theta$ is a stochastic variable distributed according to a rectangular pdf with support $[0, 2\pi)$. ...

### The mean value of phase noise as a stochastic process

What is the mean value of phase noise as a stochastic process? Where can I get a theoretical analysis of this topic? PS: PLL produces cos(2*πfct+φ(t)). The phase noise refers to φ(t). The mean value ...

A basic theorem in communications is the matched filter maximizes the SNR at sampling. I'm a little confused on how this relates to discrete time systems and sampling rate. Normally if you sample at ...

### Physical meaning of average values of random signals

This question might be a bit stupid, anyway, i'll risk it, since i want to get better understanding of this subject. Let's consider random signal x(t), and let's say that we know that it is ergodic ...

### Autocorrelation: numpy versus FFT

I have a series a of values (0 and 1) coming from a Brownian process with drift for which I am studying the autocorrelation. I used two methods: 1) numpy autocorrelation: ...

### Band-limited random signal with arbitrary distribution?

I'd like to generate a random discrete-time signal that is band-limited to some bandwidth B (by means of a digital filter, ie in MATLAB). The catch is that I'd like this signal to have an arbitrary ...

### What is the difference between the PSD of a deterministic and stochastic signal?

I am learning about stochastic processes and I don't get one thing: What is the advantage of calculating the PSD of a signal using the Wiener-Khinchin theorem $\Phi(\omega) =\mathcal{F}\{R_{xx}\}$ ...

### Power Spectral Density of Brownian Motion despite non-stationary

Note: I originally asked this on Physics Stack Exchange but haven't attracted any interest there so I'm asking here where it may be more relevant. A white noise process, $\xi(t)$ with delta ...

### Covariance matrix, Q, for a Kalman filter given the stochastic differential equation for the state of the system?

Given that I have a stochastic differential equation describing the motion of my system like so: $$\ddot{x}(t) + \Omega_0^2x(t) - C\dfrac{dW(t)}{dt} = 0$$ Where $\Omega_0$ and $C$ are constants. I ...

### How to generate colored Gaussian noise and adding it to a ODE system - Do I need Euler-Maruyama method?

In the tutorial, when white noise process is added to ordinary differential equations (ODE), the ODE becomes a stochastic process. Then the stochastic process needs to be solved using Euler Maruyama ...

### What is stochastic differential equation and its need?

A white noise process can be simulated using the Matlab command randn(). The numbers will be drawn from a Normal distribution of zero mean and variance 1. Is the ...

### Response of Linear System to Stochastic Process

Somehow I am getting the variance{u(n)} equal to '0' !! This is the case when I take the coefficient 'a' as real. As it is not mentioned in the question I need to find the solution to this question ...
I am reading through the PAM transmission scheme and about the power spectral density of the signals. Given that the Average Power Spectral Density of PAM Signals is:  \Phi_{ss}(f)=\Phi_{aa}\left(e^...
