An approximate method of spectral analysis called ‘successive spectral analysis’ based upon the mean-quadratic approximation of an empirical function by generalised trigonometric polynomial with both unknown frequencies and coefficients is developed. A few quotations describing some properties of the method as well as one of the possible methods for numerical solution are given.
