Time frequency modelling (1998)
Abstract / truncated to 115 words
The overriding aim of this thesis is to investigate the benefits of focusing time-frequency analysis on particular regions of the time-frequency plane. The thesis examines aspects of such a regionalisation in the analysis of both deterministic signals and stochastic processes. The majority of deterministic energetic time-frequency representations are non-parametric indicating the distribution of the energy of a signal in the time-frequency plane but providing no further information about the time-frequency structure. This thesis develops a semi-parametric time-frequency model to simultaneously describe the time-frequency energetic structure of a signal and provide an indication of its time-frequency complexity. The model aims to identify â€˜timefrequency componentsâ€™ within the signal to indicate how their energy is distributed in the ...
