The relative motion between the transmitter and the receiver modifies the nonstationarity properties of the transmitted signal. In particular, the almost-cyclostationarity property exhibited by almost all modulated signals adopted in communications, radar, sonar, and telemetry can be transformed into more general kinds of nonstationarity. A proper statistical characterization of the received signal allows for the design of signal processing algorithms for detection, estimation, and classification that significantly outperform algorithms based on classical descriptions of signals.Generalizations of Cyclostationary Signal Processing addresses these issues and includes the following key features:
Presents the underlying theoretical framework, accompanied by details of their practical application, for the mathematical models of generalized almost-cyclostationary processes and spectrally correlated processes; two classes of signals finding growing importance in areas such as mobile communications, radar and sonar.
Explains second- and higher-order characterization of nonstationary stochastic processes in time and frequency domains.
Discusses continuous- and discrete-time estimators of statistical functions of generalized almost-cyclostationary processes and spectrally correlated processes.
Provides analysis of mean-square consistency and asymptotic Normality of statistical function estimators.
Offers extensive analysis of Doppler channels owing to the relative motion between transmitter and receiver and/or surrounding scatterers.
Performs signal analysis using both the classical stochastic-process approach and the functional approach, where statistical functions are built starting from a single function of time.
Air and Spaceborne Radar Systems (Radar, Sonar, Navigation and Avionics)
The history of airborne radar is almost as old as that of radar itself. The improvement in detection range provided by an airborne platform was realised early during the Second World War, and the development of the cavity magnetron at almost the same time allowed higher radar frequencies and, hence, directive antennas to be used. Nowadays,...
Trends in Functional Programming: 11th International Symposium, TFP 2010
The 11th Symposium on Trends in Functional Programming took place on the
University of Oklahoma campus in Norman, Oklahoma, May 17-19, 2010. The
program included presentations of 26 papers submitted by researchers from six
nations and an invited talk by J. Strother Moore on machine reasoning so well
received that the question/answer...
Computer Networking Illuminated (Jones and Bartlett Illuminated) The study of computer networking concepts and administration is an essential part of the education of computer science and information science students. A basic networking course should provide a strong theoretical background, practice in network design and creation, and the experience of maintaining and managing a network. Having taught computer...
