Bispectrum estimation methods

I am trying to understand whether to use the indirect method(with Parzen as our window) or the direct method to better estimate the bispectrum of X(k). I get the following plot for the indirect ...

Channel estimation using bit reversed order of FFT matrix

Is it possible to use the bit-reverse order of FFT instead of FFT to estimate the channel? Based on my reading, I found that bit reversed order of FFT matrix can diagonalize the channel, but ...

Estimation of Amplitude, Frequency and Phase of Linear Combination of Harmonic Signal Beyond the Leakage Resolution of DFT

How can I find a rough ( as accurate as possible) Amplitude of each frequency when there is spectral leakage. Currently, I am dealing with a system that contains special leakage which seems ...

Estimating the SNR of 2-FSK

I have some iq data recordings of a 2-FSK waveform that I've created periodograms from. How do you estimate the SNR of this waveform in the frequency domain? I've heard two opinions: One: Integrate ...

What is the current “state of the art” in future audio sample prediction, given recent developments in “image inpainting” using deep learning?

In the last few years, there have been many breakthroughs in the image processing world regarding repairing "damaged" images, images with corrupt pixels, or even reversing artefacts from ...

ML estimation - solve for x

I'm trying to solve the following maximum likelihood estimation but for multiplicative noise instead of additive noise: So the goal is to do ML-estimation for a scalar constant $x$, which is ...

Multipath channel estimation in single carrier modulation

I think it’s a basic question, but I couldn’t get it’s clear answer. If we have data symbols $x$ vector of length $N$ x $1$ ; it’s convoluted with a multipath channel $h$ of length $L$ x $1$; the ...

Estimate IR's from single channel speech audio

I have a dataset of single-channel audios containing speech, recorded in a single room. I need to extract the room IR's. The goal is to simulate the room acoustics and adjust new speech audios ...

Achieve better noise reduction at frequency response function estimation

I have the following problem. I have $M$ synchronized, noisy measurements of a MIMO system (2 inputs, 2 outputs) of all inputs and outputs. The inputs are synchronized (no phase shift, coherent ...

How to Use Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA) for a Transmitter Localization

Does anybody know a source that illustrates the algorithm to use TDOA method to locate a transmitter? Would the equations to solve (x, y, z) of the transmitter location linear or non-linear? How about ...

Variance of expectation estimator

Given a set of $N$ iid samples, $x_k$, of random variable $X$ and the expectation estimator, $$E[X] \approx \frac{1}{N} \sum_{k=1}^N x_k,$$ how do I find the variance of this estimator (not the ...

Justification for Squared ${L}_{2}$ Data and Smoothness Term as an Error Bound

Often in variational methods (and not only) we have an energy that is of the form: $$E(u) = \frac{1}{2}\|f-u\|^2_2 + \frac{\alpha}{2}\|\psi(u)\|^2_2,$$ where the first term is referred to as the data ...
As I know that in case of one tap OFDM equalizer, (ZF equalizer), we should have $N$ division complexity since we divide every subcarriers by its correspondent channel tap in frequency domain. But I ...
