Abstract:

This research centers on the problem of how to precisely describe any arbitrarily determined binary pulse sequence. If such a technique is developed, can we then implement this description into some form of device which reproduces the specified signal In Chapter 1 I examine the impetus for this research and conclude with the problem statement. Chapter 2 contains the concept of an arbitrary pulse sequence and provides the fundamental definitions used throughout the remainder of the thesis. Transform methods using the Fourier and Walsh transforms are examined in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 uses hardware solutions, such as shift register theory, to solve the pulse sequence problem. The problems associated with transform methods and hardwired solutions when applied to the arbitrary sequence problem are highlighted in Chapter 5 with my proposed solution concluding the chapter. Where Chapter 5 contains the specifics of my solution, Chapter 6 proposes various hardwaresoftware implementations of this technique. Concluding remarks and conjectures complete the thesis in Chapter 7.
