### Separating out a sequence of DFTs with overlapping windows

Suppose I have a time series partitioned into $N$ equally-sized sections. Choosing some $k<N$, for each of the sections $i \in[0, N-k]$, I concatenate that section with the $k-1$ sections to the ...

### Apply window taper for selected window or to full data block in algebraic problem with known frequencies?

First, I'd like to introduce a problem. I try to solve a set of linear equations in LS (Least Squares) sense, i.e. Ax=y (LS) => A^TA x = A^T y. x is a vector I'm looking for, but y is a measured ...

### Is there a window with both a lower side lobe level and higher side lobe roll of rate than Blackman

Is there a window with both a lower side lobe level and higher side lobe roll of rate than the Blackman window - even if it is poor or useless for some other reason?

### Windowing a signal by using Hanning / Hamming or... zero padding?

My question is about the use of Hanning or Hamming windows versus "square" windows. In my understanding, I will use a Hanning or Hamming window to limit the spectral leakage. But, on the second hand, ...

I remember having seen a formula of the form $C=\frac{B}{L}$ that relates a duration $L$(s) of a window to its width $C$(Hz) in the spectrum (defined at -3dB or so). The constant $B$ would be ...

### properly windowing for better FFT signal

I have an analog signal as shown below. As you can see it has a DC component, a 1MHz component and some high order component. The period of the signal is 8.0199667µs. I want to see a good accurate ...

### How best analyze a very short data record (~100 data points) windowing and padding data to perform CWT

I have short segments of a biological signal interpolated at 10 Hz (anywhre from about 8.5 sec to 10 sec length). I want to use a cwt to then convert this segment to frequency over the short time ...

### Window gain factor and amplitudes in FFT

I have some vibration data (acceleration) on which I need to perform an FFT, integrate it and again do an FFT. I read that for the nature of the data that I have, the input to the FFT must be first ...

### Blackman window magnitude attenuation

I am trying to compute the fundamental phasor using sliding window DFT. I have employed a Blackman window in conjunction i.e $$\sum_{k=0}^{L_{DFT}-1}x(k) w(k) e^{-j2\pi k/N}$$ where $x(k)$ is the ...

### How to specify a window?

I have developed my own window function for pre-processing signals prior to a DFT (FFT). How do I measure the performance of the window so that I can specify how good (or bad) it is? Maybe other ...

### How to know the time of my window to calculate the STFT with python knowing only the length?

I am trying to implement a work presented in an IEEE paper where they have mentioned that the STFT was performed on the signal measurements to obtain a spectrogram with no overlap window of 3 min : I ...

### Band-pass filtering on whole signal or overlapping chunks?

I am working with a signal acquired by a pulse oximeter, i.e. a device that records the change of light intensity reflected by a specific tissue depending on its blood perfusion. Since I am interest ...

### Welch's Overlapped Method

I am measuring wind speed using a number of different anemometers. These anemometers are placed on a structure which exhibits sinusoidal motion. Thus, the signal of the anemometers contains both the ...
$$x[n] = \cos(\omega_1n) + \cos(\omega_2n)$$ $w[n] = 1/N$ for $0 \leq n < N, 0$ for everything else Find the DTFT of $y[n]=x[n]w[n]$ expressed by the DTFT of $w[n]$, $W(\omega)$ I was thinking ...
