Total Variance: a Progress Report on a New Frequency Stability Characterization
NATIONAL INST OF STANDARDS AND TECHNOLOGY BOULDER CO
Pagination or Media Count:
We give results of recent work on a newly developed frequency stability characterization, called Total variance, whose main advantages are improved confidence at and near the longest averaging time of half the data duration, and lower sensitivity to drift removal. Properties given here, for the standard FM noise types, include mean, degrees of freedom, frequency response, and empircal distribution function.
