Abstract:

With the advent of high speed computers, the digital processing of data became a common practice among many researchers. The recent trend among geophysical researchers has been to establish their own computer system by use of a mini computer rather than time sharing of a larger system. In developing such a system, a question arises as to how reliable is the newly acquired computer system. A method of evaluating a performance of such computer system is presented. The method consists of processing data of known characteristics and comparing the results. The quantities calculated include probability densities, higher order moments, spectra, cross spectra, and a coherency spectrum. Author
