### Global variability index for group of signals

Suppose I have a method that I can use to generate $n_p$ signals (we can intend them as realizations of an unknown not stationary discrete-time stochastic process). Modifying the method, I can obtain ...

### Variance Due to white noise input

I have the problem below. It sounds simple but for some reason I have been stuck on it for a long time and don't know what am doing wrong. Am trying to solve this using correlations. So we all know ...

### Signal-to-Noise ratio of multivariate stochastic process from Correlation Matrix

I'm not in signal processing, I'm from an another discipline. I've derived a simple result which I presume must be well known in SP and I'd like to know whether there's a paper or textbook that has it ...

### How to find the output mean and autocorrelation of a non-linear system

I need help with this question. I am sure this is the right StackExchange forum for this type of question. Consider a nonlinear device such that the output is $Y(t) = aX^2(t)$, where the input X(t) ...

### When is Markov a Martingale

I have two questions and I am very confused about the concepts Can a Markov process of order one also be a a Martingale? Is any Markov process of order one also a Martingale? For 1. I would say yes, ...

### Stochastic Methods for Image Deconvolution Problem

If we convolve an image with a point spread function and from the resulting image to find the input image, can we use any stochastic approaches? I feel like we will not be able to. A single image ...

### Showing that the sum of zero-mean noise is zero. Then computing the convolution of zero-mean noise with a given function

This is likely to be a quick fix for people with experience in stochastic processes. Let $\eta[k]$ be a sequence of Uniform noise, $\eta \sim U([-M,M])$. I want to test if the following is correct ...

### Steady state variance of a stochastic differential equation - relation between the frequency and time domains

Consider a stochastic differential equation: $$dx(t) = a x(t)dt + b y(t)dt \quad (1)$$ where $y(t)$ is a stochastic process satisfying $\langle y(t)y(t')\rangle = \delta(t-t')$. We will assume that ...

### Proving that this process is weakly-stationary [duplicate]

Let $X(t) = Acos(2\pi f_c t)$ be a random process where $A$ is a uniform random variable within $(-1,1)$. I'm trying to prove this is a weakly(i.e. wide sense) stationary process. I need to show two ...

### When deriving the power spectral density of stochastic processes, why does taking an expectation allow the $T\rightarrow\infty$ limit to be taken?

I am following the arguments presented in the paper AN-255 Power Spectra Estimation, from Texas Instruments, to learn how to derive the power spectral density for a stationary stochastic process, and ...

### Why the requirement of the GCD of the lengths of all circuits in the graph being one?

I am reading A Mathematical Theory of Communication. The second requirement of an ergodic process confuses me (emphasis mine): All the examples of artificial languages given above are ergodic. This ...

### How do I find variance from the PSD of a stochastic process?

I have a time series that consists of noise and a signal, shown here windowed and Wiener filtered: and the PSD of just the noise (used in filtering): I want to find the variance of the noise using ...
