The running time-frequency distributions

Abstract

This paper introduces the running kernels that yield recursive structures for time-frequency distributions (TFDs). The running kernels offer important properties not possessed by the commonly used block distribution kernels. The introduced kernels allow an invariance in computations with respect to the extent of the kernel in the time or the lag variable. However, contrary to the wide class of block kernels that satisfy the desired timefrequency (t-f) properties, most recursive (running) time-frequency distributions (RTFDs) violate the marginal and the support properties. This paper considers both the direct and the indirect types of recursion and presents examples for illustration.
