Abstract:

An investigation of the possibility of efficient, discrete representations of random signals is discussed. In many problems a conversion is necessary between a signal of continuous form andA SIGNAL OF DISCRETE FORM. This conversion should take place with small loss of information but still in as efficient a manner as possible. Optimum representations are found for a finite time interval. The asymptotic behavior of the error in the stationary case is related to the spectrum of the process. Optimal solutions can also be found when the representation is made in the presence of noise. These solutions are closely connected with the theory of optimum linear systems. Some experimental results have been obtained by using these optimum representations. Author
