How accurately can deterministic modes be identified from a finite record of noisy data? In this paper we answer this question by computing the Cramer-Rao bound on the error covariance matrix of any unbiased estimator of mode parameters. The bound is computed for many of the standard parametric descriptions of a mode, including autoregressive and moving(More)
—This paper is concerned with the structure of estima-tors of correlation matrices and correlation sequences. We argue that reasonable estimators of the correlation matrix are quadratic in the data and nonnegative definite. We also specify the structure of the estimator when the data are modulated: a property we call modulation covariance. We state a(More)
