Hi, In part of modeling a communications system, I need to incorporate a broadband interference source. The model of interest is a source which generates Gaussian noise whose bandwidth and total power are specified. I am thinking of doing this by using the following model for a discrete signal by letting: n = time index at which signal is sampled dt = uniform time between samples w = 2...

I would like to experiment with chaotic noise versus Gaussian noise sources. Previous threads in comp.dsp have recommend summing 12 uniform RNG's to approximate Gaussian random noise, which can be done with a reasonably small computational overhead per sample. Does anyone know of any reasonably low overhead algorithms to generate random noise samples from an approximation to fat-tailed, ...

## PULSE DURATION ESTIMATION FROM THE OUTPUT OF MATCHED FILTER

Hi to everybody, As you can understand from the subject, i am trying to estimate durations of the pulses from the output of the matched filter. Let me explain you the problem. I have pulses that are seperated in time enough under 10 dB SNR white gaussian noise. The nominal pulse durations are 0.45 microseconds. However they may come 0.15 microseconds less than 0.45 microseconds. These narrower ...

Hi, I'm trying to use the "Gaussian Noise Generator" under Simulink 6.3(R14SP3). There are something I dont understand. 1. Is there any mathematic formula to calculate the "Noise Power Density" from the parameters "mean value(I set this to zero)", "variance", and "sample time"? 2. What's the sample rate mean? Should it be the same with the sample rate of signal, or the sample rate of ...

My understanding is that when you add AWGN to a carrier, you make the amplitude a gaussian distribution, and then add white noise to this (not really pure white noise, but as high a BW as your simulation can handle). However, if you amplitude modulate a carrier by any AM % modulation, then your Fourier transform will show side bands which will not be spectrally flat like the added white n...

I made a similar post sci.image.processing a while back. I'm trying to understand why a my natural images are higher entropy than uniform noise. The order from lowest to highest is constant (0 obviously), uniform noise, LPF'd image, same image not LPF'd, gaussian noise My theoretical calculation for uniform noise agrees with what I'm getting -- about 1/256*log2(256)*241^2. Now there a...

I am trying to implement a newton-raphson iteration to estimate sinusoidal frequency mixed with noise. Here's the problem statement: A white Gaussian noise process w(n) with variance sigma^2 = 1 is modulated by a sinusoid cos(2pif0n)*w(n) to yield the data set x(n) = cos(2pif0n)*w(n), n = 0, 1, ... , N-1, where N = 1000.

Let us assume that we have a bandlimited signal (with maximum frequency f_n) corrupted by additive white Gaussian noise. Before we can sample this signal, we pass the signal through an ideal anti-alias filter with cut-off frequency f_c > =f_n to avoid noise aliasing. The output of the anti-aliasing filter is fed into a matched filter matched to the symbol rate, (1/T)> =2f_n (i used f_n here because

I'am studying robust methods for processing power electrical signals in non-Gaussian noise. I know the mostly used method is M-Estimator and have already implemented an algorithm to analyze power harmonics. But how can I evaluate it and compare it with other non-robust methods. Besides impulsive noise, is there any other non-Gaussian noise? How can I simulate them? Thanks in advance!!!!!...

Hi, all, I would like to generate a white noise whose power spectral density is 1( flat over all frequency). I used Matlab function wgn to get it: wn=wgn(1,10000,1,'linear'); Does the function above generate a white gaussian noise whose PSD is 1? Then I did simple experiment to check its PSD. I used Matlab function periodogram without any window: [p,w]=periodogram(wn); figure; p...
