I am trying to analyze the variability of detection time by a threshold detector for input signal perturbed by a White Gaussian Noise (w[n]) N(0,sig^2). My input to the detector is a ramp-signal x[n] with added WGN w[n]. The input signal is supposed to have a fixed SNR. Now, I decide to use the input of duration/length L. Then compute the input signal power as sigPower = sum(x[n].*x[n])/...

Hello, I would just like to clarify what people mean when they say a signal is colored? My assumption is it means white gaussian noise is added to the signal, but I just want this to be clarified. Thank you.

I have a signal detection problem. The observer is presented 2 waveforms r1 and r2 on every trial. One waveform contains the signal + noise, and the other just noise. Eg r1 = s + n1 r2 = n2 The noise in the two waveforms is correlated Gaussian noise with covariance matrix R. Ie corr(n1,n2) is nonzero. If there were no correlation, the optimal way to make the decision would be to cross-corr...

Hi guys I'm trying to find a solution for detecting a sinusoidial signal under non-gaussian noise, for example sinusoidial noise, consider the following model: y1(t)=A*exp(j*w*t)+B*exp(j*w*t)+n(t) y2(t)=B*exp(j*w*t)+n(t) I want to detect if y1 or y2 is present, do you think that ML detection is applicable here (p(r/y1)/p(r/y2)>

Consider an unknown DC level in a white Gaussian noise with zero mean and unknown variance. The value of the DC level is restricted to a range of [A0, A1], the observations, that is the DC level plus WGN are also restricted in this range. Then what is the optimal estimator for the DC level and the variance of the noise?

All- I have 14-bit A/D samples in FPGA and I want to perform dithering to eliminate harmonics. How can I do it? I added the signal with Gaussian noise and did subtract dithering. And that didn't work. Any suggestion is very appreciated. Thank you. Billy

Hi! I'm simulating a burst QPSK modulation and demodulation through a canal with distortion and additive white Gaussian noise. Thus far everything is going as planned and I can retrieve the data. I've decided to implement a gardner timing error detector in order to compensate for some very small clock drift. So I've read some documentation and I now compute the Gardner TED error. But i...

I always had this question in my mind: The autocorrelation function of the filtered white Gaussian noise is simply a sinc function (inverse transform of the output of a brickwall filter with bandwidth 1/2T). Now if we sample the autocorrelation function with rate 1/T, the discrete-time noise samples are uncorrelated due to the sinc function passing through 0s at the T-spaced sampling instants. How...


Question about a Bandlimited Process

Is it possible to even simulate a true bandlimited process? That is we would like the spectrum to be zero at some frequency less that nyquist. Surely passing gaussian noise through some FIR filter would shape the noise to be 'small' in the band of non-interest but is not exactly zero. But seeting up a FIR is probably a quick and easy way out. Would a better means of simulating a bandlimit...

Hi guys, I have to determine the time lag between two signals x and y for an acoustic distance measurement setup. The signal x is the test input signal and y is the reflected signal from the acoustic path. This is modeled the following: y = h * y + N whereas N is additional gaussian noise and h is the impulse response of the acoustic path. (The operator * states for a con

I need a number, and I'm feeling lazy; has anyone worked this out recently? I want to know the distribution of the maximum of the absolute value of a vector of samples of a colored, zero-mean Gaussian process. Or, stated another way, I want to shove white noise into a filter, then examine a finite chunk of the filter output for it's maximum absolute value. Anyone know the answer? ...

Hi, I have a (for simplicity brickwall) bandlimited white Gaussian noise signal x[n]. Hence I know roughly its PSD. I would like to get an estimate of ||x^3[n]||/||x[n]||^3 (||.|| l2-Norm of the discrete time signal x[n]). My idea was now to go to frequency domain (Parseval) and obtain the PSD of x^3[n] via 2-fold convolution of X[k]. If I would just approximate the PSD of x[n] as ...

Hi, I am reading a paper on particle filter on bearing estimation. The system model is: x_k = P*x_k-1 + w_k P is a 4X4 matrix. x_k is the position and speed of a 2-D of the object position (a, a^, b, b^). The measurement z_k is: z_k=tan^-1(b_k/a_k) + v_k w_k and v_k are Gaussian noise. On particle filter, it needs likelihood to calculate posterior probability: p(z_k|x_k...
