The concept of spectral analysis using least-squares is further developed to remove any undesired influence on the spectrum. The influence of such a ‘systematic noise’ can be eliminated without the necessity of knowing the magnitudes of the noise constituents. The technique can be used for irregularly spaced as well as equidistantly spaced data. The response to random noise is found to be constant in the frequency domain and its expected level is derived. Presence of random noise in the… 

Some tests of the Vaníček Method of spectral analysis

One of the chief claims of the Vaníček Method of spectrum analysis is its, ability to remove ‘systematic noise’ from a time series with minimal distortion of the spectrum of the remaining series. In

Least-squares frequency analysis of unequally spaced data

The statistical properties of least-squares frequency analysis of unequally spaced data are examined. It is shown that, in the least-squares spectrum of gaussian noise, the reduction in the sum of

A Brief Overview on Least Square Spectral Analysis and Power Spectrum

This time of experimental time series used LSSA (which used projection theorem) so that it can also analyze the time series, which is unequally spaced and unequally weighted.

A New Method for the Spectral Analysis of Unevenly Sampled Time Series

We present a new method for the spectral analysis of unevenly sampled time series. We apply the properties of inverse sums of matrices and pseudoinverses to a constrained least squares formulation of

Stochastic significance of peaks in the least-squares spectrum

Abstract. The least-squares spectral analysis method is reviewed, with emphasis on its remarkable property to accept time series with an associated, fully populated covariance matrix. Two distinct

Spectral analysis as applied to a set of gyrocompass transit times

Spectral analysis by least squares as developed by Vaníček is applied to a series of transit times measurements obtained with a suspended gyrocompass (Wild) electronically equipped with three

Calculation of signal spectrum by means of stochastic inversion

Abstract. The standard method of calculating the spectrum of a digital signal is based on the Fourier transform, which gives the amplitude and phase spectra at a set of equidistant frequencies from

Least-Squares Wavelet Analysis of Unequally Spaced and Non-stationary Time Series and Its Applications

Least-squares spectral analysis, an alternative to the classical Fourier transform, is a method of analyzing unequally spaced and non-stationary time series in their first and second statistical

On the aliasing problem in the spherical harmonic analysis

To apply the least squares method for the interpolation of harmonic functions is a common practice in Geodesy. Since the method of least squares can be applied only to overdetermined problem, the



Approximate spectral analysis by least-squares fit

An approximate method of spectral analysis called ‘successive spectral analysis’ based upon the mean-quadratic approximation of an empirical function by generalised trigonometric polynomial with both
