### Is it possible to define the wavelet phase difference for only one signal?

The wavelet phase difference between two signals $x(t)$ and $y(t)$ is derived using the real and the imaginary part of cross wavelet transform $W_{x,y}$. (Let us consider e.g. the Morlet wavelet as ...

### Uncovering which frequencies two systems are communicating on by observing reoccurring time correlated signals and their frequencies

Suppose you have a set of communication systems {A, B, C, D}, which speak with each other as well as other systems not contained in the set. Our concern is how they speak with each other. They ...

### What is the standard deviation of a signal composed of multiple signals

I have three time signals (u(i) ,v(i) ,w(i) ) for 360 positions, and thus the total displacement is calculated as: vel(i) sqrt(u(i) ^2+v(i) ^2+w(i) ^2), for each position the signals are an averaged(...
