The need for Time - frequency analysis: introduction, simple analytic Examples, why spectra changes. Time and Frequency Description of Signals: duration and mean time in terms of the spectrum, bandwidth equations and AM and FM contributions to the bandwidth. Instantaneous Frequency and the Complex Signal: reasons for the complex signal, the analytic signal, physical interpretation of the analytic signal and density of instantane ous frequency. Densities and Characteristic functions: one and two dimensional density functions and their characteristic functions, relation between local and global averages. Fundamentals of Time - Frequency Distribution (TFD): Uncertainty principle and pr operties of TFD. Different Types of TFD: Short Time Fourier Transform, Wigner distribution, generalized TFD and prosperities of these distributions. Generation of TFD Using Kernal Methods. Kernel design for reduced interference in TFD. Positive Distributio ns Satisfying the Marginals. Applications of TFD in the fields of Radar, Speech, Sonar Signal Processing
