To expand on Dilip's comment: The noise being white implies only a certain property of the noise itself, not its correlation with any other signal. In digital communications, the independence and/or …

I'll assume AM DSB modulation for simplicity, but the same idea applies to quadrature modulation. I'll assume that the received signal has been properly bandpass filtered. I'll also ignore noise and c …

The usual scenario is where you want to find if the received signal is noise: $$r(t)=n(t),$$ or if it is a signal plus noise: $$r(t)=s(t)+n(t).$$ It is generally assumed that you know $s(t)$. For exam …

This channel model is known as a multiplicative channel, and it differs from the AWGN channel in that the signal amplitude is scaled by a gain factor. If the gain factor is real (that is, if the chan …

There are many factors involved in understanding the theoretical limits to communication. What follows is just a brief introduction that only scratches the surface. First, let's consider a simple sce …

I think the problem is not as bad as you suspect it is. I wasn't around at the time, but from what I've read, early radar systems essentially connected the matched filter's output to an oscilloscope, …

As Conrad pointed out, a correlator is probably your best bet. The correlation of a signal with itself (also known as its self-similarity) is larger than its correlation with any other signal (except …

In signal processing, two problems are common: What is the output of this filter when its input is $x(t)$? The answer is given by $x(t)\ast h(t)$, where $h(t)$ is a signal called the "impulse respon …

It looks like you have calculated $$\frac{S+N}{N}=3.47$$ (The output of snr is in dB). This means that $\frac{S}{N}=2.47$. I have assumed that the power of the signal plus noise is equal to the power …

Yes, it is possible (at least on paper or code, since complex signal don't exist physically) to apply a matched filter to complex signals. This is one way to look at it that I think is illustrative. …
