I have a question that has been bugging me fo rsome time and I am hoping someone here can help me get to the bottom of it. It is a zero padding & FFT issue. Here goes; If I take 2 random signals for deconvolution (say 1000 samples and 1500 samples long with same sampling time). If I zero pad both out to 4096, take FFTs, devide one by another, then take iFFT, I get a graph of one signal deconvo...

I'm having some problems with a simple spectrum analyzer I've been designing in Matlab (with GUIDE). I'm trying to plot the single sided Amplitude Spectrum in my GUI with some random data. The problem is the frequency mismatch in the x-scale of my axes. When I input a 1 kHz sine wave for example simulink sends an array of two colums wide. The first colomn contains the time and the second th...

Hi guys, not a real "matlab" question, but this group seems to be the best for random communications/DSP queries -- so here goes mine. I am looking for a .bib database that is heavy with references to papers/book in communications (e.g. MIMO, channel estimation etc). Considering that all of us who write papers have to build this kind of a database, it seems sharing will reduce the pai...

Hello! I have to generate two random sequences of fixed length (k). One with a rice distribution and the other with nakagami distribution( with characteristic parameter m). I've found in literature that a rice distribution can be obtained as the square root of the sum of squares of 2 independent gaussian variate (one with non zero mean). So I suppose I can generate it in Matlab with ,for exampl...

Can anybody elaborate on this.if h(t) is the impulse response of the filter I have to send white Gaussian noise to it,in continuous domain .In matlab simulation I have to generate a vector of Gaussian random variables using randn and convolve it with the discrete filter coefficents and use each element of the output vector as one time instant value.Is it correct Thank You Rakesh > > >

Dear All, In my work I am using MATLAB function RANDN to generate zero mean and variance 1 random numbers. I know the PDF for this is Gaussian which is well defined in literature and I can find loads of information on it. But in my work I happened to get four different Gaussian numbers multiplied together i.e.: a4 = a*a*a*a (where a is a Complex Gaussian number) I am interested in anal

Hi all, My project involves estimating some random vector 'X=[x1,x2....xn]' using the belief propagation algorithm in Matlab. I have a doubt in the initialization part of the algorithm. It states, the initial estimate of each x, x1_hat, x2_hat...xn_hat = mean of Px(x) and var(x_hat) = var of Px(x) where Px(x) is the prior marginal distribution. Now how do I do this in Matlab? If I assume so...

Hi everybody, First I like to appologize because my question is some how stupid, since I am mechanical engineer student and new in signal processing, I need to generate a random signal with a desired PSD, I found that this problem was asked before by Tony and Nandan gave him the answer. What Nandan said was to generate a white signal (uniform PSD) and then pass it through a filter whose f
