### Why LTI system cannot generate any new frequencies?

Why $Y (\omega) = X(\omega)H(\omega)$ implies that an LTI system cannot generate any new frequencies? Why if a system generates new frequencies, then it is not LTI?

### Match Filter in Time-Frequency domain instead of just Time domain. Redundant, or better?

Assume you have a signal, and within it, some pulses are present. A pulse is a simple tone. You know the pulses' duration and shape. (Let us assume that a pulse is made of a couple of cycles, and then ...

### Why we need Frequency and Time information at the same time

The big disadvantage of a DFT is that it has only frequency resolution and no time resolution. This means that although we might be able to determine all the frequencies present in a signal, we do not ...

### Mathematical model of equivalent-time sampling, the resulting unevenly spaced periodic signal, and its interpretation

I sample a continuous signal $s(T)$ over time. This leads to $s[t]$, which depends on several factors of which some are (pseudo-) periodic. I am interested in the effect of one such periodic factors ...

### Analyse audio/music frequencies without STFT, at 1/f temporal resolution, using probe phasors at logarithmically-spaced frequencies, O(N log N)?

First, some background: The STFT is the best general-purpose tool I know of for analysing a (musical or other) signal into its component frequencies. For many purposes the STFT works fine, but there ...
