This paper presents the essential elements for developing objective methods of assessment of the performance of time-frequency signal analysis techniques. We define a measure for assessing the resolution performance of time-frequency distributions (TFDs) in separating closely spaced components in the time-frequency domain. The measure takes into account key(More)
A method for components instantaneous frequency (IF) estimation of multicomponent signals in low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is proposed. The method combines a new proposed modification of a blind source separation (BSS) algorithm for components separation, with the improved adaptive IF estimation procedure based on the modified sliding pairwise(More)
In this letter, we have proposed a signal denoising method based on a modification of the intersection of confidence intervals (ICI) rule. The ICI rule is complemented by the relative intersection of confidence intervals length which is used as an additional criterion for adaptive filter support selection. It is shown that the proposed method outperforms(More)
The time-frequency Rényi entropy provides a measure of complexity of a nonstationary multicomponent signal in the time-frequency plane. When the complexity of a signal corresponds to the number of its components, then this information is measured as the Rényi entropy of the time-frequency distribution (TFD) of the signal. This article presents a solution to(More)
A method for the instantaneous frequency (IF) estimation of a monocomponent nonlinear frequency modulated (FM) signal based on the pseudo Wigner-Ville distribution (PWVD) with an adaptive window width is presented. In order to improve the IF estimation accuracy, the original sliding pair-wise intersection of confidence intervals (SPICI) rule has been(More)
Selecting a time-frequency distribution (TFD) which represents a signal in an optimal way is commonly done by visually comparing plots of different TFDs. This paper presents a procedure that allows the analyst to perform the same task in an automatic way. Using the resolution performance measure for TFDs, the procedure optimises all distributions considered(More)
In this paper, we propose novel adaptive wavelet filter bank structures based on the lifting scheme. The filter banks are nonseparable, based on quincunx sampling, with their properties being pixel-wise adapted according to the local image features. Despite being adaptive, the filter banks retain a desirable number of primal and dual vanishing moments. The(More)
A methodology based on a resolution performance measure P for time-frequency distributions (TFDs) [ I ] was defined to optimise TFDs and select the one which results into best concentration of signal components around their instantaneous frequency laws, and best suppression of the interference terms in the time-frequency plane. The algorithm which(More)
