Title:Cyclostationarity and Generalizations: An Ubiquitous Statistical Model for Science Data
Abstract: Cyclostationary signals and their generalizations are a suitable model for data originated by many processes arising from the interaction/combination of periodic phenomena and random phenomena. Examples come from many fields including communications, radar/sonar, telemetry, mechanics, biology, astronomy, and econometrics. Statistical characterization and applications of cyclostationary signals and their generalizations are reviewed. In particular, the problems of statistical function measurements, filtering, uniform sampling, parameter estimation, and signal detection are addressed. A link with other nonstationarity models is discussed.
