—Respiration rate (RR) is one of the important vital signs used for clinical monitoring of neonates in intensive care units. Due to the fragile skin of the neonates, it is preferable to have monitoring systems with minimal contact with the neonate. Recently, several methods have been proposed for contact-free monitoring of vital signs using a video camera.(More)
Binaural hearing studies show that the auditory system uses the phase-difference information in the auditory stimuli for localization of a sound source. Motivated by this finding, we present a method for demodulation of amplitude-modulated-frequency-modulated (AM-FM) signals using a signal and its arbitrary phase-shifted version. The demodulation is(More)
Gabor's analytic signal (AS) is a unique complex signal corresponding to a real signal, but in general, it admits infinitely-many combinations of amplitude and frequency modulations (AM and FM, respectively). The standard approach is to enforce a non-negativity constraint on the AM, but this results in discontinuities in the corresponding phase modulation(More)
Linear prediction is a popular strategy employed in the analysis and representation of signals. In this paper, we propose a new linear prediction approach by considering the standard linear prediction in the context of graph signal processing, which has gained significant attention recently. We view the signal to be defined on the nodes of a graph with an(More)
—We propose Hilbert transform (HT) and analytic signal (AS) construction for signals over graphs. This is motivated by the popularity of HT, AS, and modulation analysis in conventional signal processing, and the observation that complementary insight is often obtained by viewing conventional signals in the graph setting. Our definitions of HT and AS use a(More)
We address the problem of temporal envelope modeling for transient audio signals. We propose the Gamma distribution function (GDF) as a suitable candidate for modeling the envelope keeping in view some of its interesting properties such as asymmetry, causality, near-optimal time-bandwidth product, controllability of rise and decay, etc. The problem of(More)
The amplitude-modulation (AM) and phase-modulation (PM) of an amplitude-modulated frequency-modulated (AM-FM) signal are defined as the modulus and phase angle, respectively, of the analytic signal (AS). The FM is defined as the derivative of the PM. However, this standard definition results in a PM with jump discontinuities in cases when the AM index(More)
