—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(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 difficulty of selecting the optimal time-frequency distribution (TFD) for a given real-life signal has been one of the major limiting factors to a wider use of time-frequency analysis tools in practice. This paper, by extending our earlier works on the objective assessment of the performance of TFDs, presents a novel automatic approach for selecting a(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 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)
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)
