Abstract:

Several techniques for estimating n-th order statistics of signals are investigated, including curve fitting methods involving estimation of average values of functions of signal amplitudes, and success counting methods for which probabilities are estimated as the percentage time that a specified condition exists. One of the success counting methods is selected for implementation, and a breadboard model constructed. This device will calculate fourth and lower order joint and conditional probability density functions and distribution functions for signals with bandwidth less than 10 Kcps. Provisions are incorporated in the breadboard for calculating probability of any fourth order event in signal space, through simple and inexpensive modification of one unit in t-device.
