This paper considers the problem of amplitude estimation of sinusoidal signals from observations corrupted by colored noise. A relatively large number of amplitude estimators, which encompass least squares (LS) and weighted least squares (WLS) methods, are described. Additionally, filterbank approaches, which are widely used for spectral analysis, are extended to amplitude estimation; more exactly, we consider the matched-filterbank (MAFI) approach and show that by appropriately designing the… 
2-D Sinusoidal Amplitude Estimation with Application to 2-D System Identification ∗
In a companion paper [1], we studied amplitude estimation of one-dimensional (1-D) sinusoidal signals from measurements corrupted by possibly colored observation noise. We herein extend the results

A new scheme for 2D system identification is introduced, which is shown to be computationally simpler and statistically more accurate than the conventional output error method (OEM), when the observation noise is colored.
Efficient Iterative Frequency Estimator of Sinusoidal Signal in Noise
This paper proposes an efficient iterative estimation algorithm using the phase shift Fourier interpolation and derives the performance of the new estimator, which is asymptotically unbiased and its mean squared error is slightly above the asymPTotical Cramer-Rao bound over the whole frequency estimation range.

It is proved that the estimation performance of the proposed algorithm can attain Cramer-Rao lower bound (CRLB) for sufficiently high signal-to-noise ratios.
Algorithm for signal parameters estimation based on the differential samples
This paper is concerned with the estimation of amplitude and phase of an analog multi-harmonic signal based on a series of differential values of the signal. To this end, assuming the signal
Reliable amplitude and frequency estimation for biased and noisy signals
Abstract Robust estimation of the amplitude, frequency and bias of unknown noisy sinusoidal signals is considered in this paper. It is only assumed that the measurements noise is bounded without any

Some New Results on the Estimation of Sinusoids in Noise
The main focus has not been on developing new algorithms for specific applications, but rather on understanding the underlying estimation problem and analysing it in a consistent fashion.


Performance analysis of forward-backward matched-filterbank spectral estimators
It is shown by means of a higher order expansion technique that the one-dimensional (1-D) Capon estimator underestimates the true spectrum, whereas the 1-D APES method is unbiased; it is shown that the bias of the forward-backward Capon is half that of theforward-only Capon (to within a second-order approximation).
An adaptive filtering approach to spectral estimation and SAR imaging
It is shown via both numerical and experimental examples that the adaptive FIR filtering approaches such as Capon and APES can yield more accurate spectral estimates with much lower sidelobes and narrower spectral peaks than the FFT method, which is also a special case of the FIR filtering approach.

Introduction to spectral analysis
This chapter presents a meta-analyses of the nonparametric methods used in the construction of the Cramer-Rao Bound Tools, which were developed in the second half of the 1990s to address the problem of boundedness in the discrete-time model.
