Abstract:

The report derives extrema of elementary symmetric polynomials of a matrix PKPL, where K and L may be considered normalized noise and signal covariance matrices, respectively. The matrix P is a right-orthonormal, rectangular matrix transformation that may be applied to a normalized sampled input signal. The polynomials are generalizations of specific error and information content criteria in analog communications and may serve as mixed criteria. Author
