Cuyt A, Hou Y & Lee W (2022) Validated analysis of modulated signals: From de Prony to Padé and beyond. Journal of Computational and Applied Mathematics, 413, Art. No.: 114346. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cam.2022.114346
The spectral analysis of modulated signals has attracted quite some research, mainly because of the fact that Fourier methods are not particularly suitable. Among the challenges, we mention the separation of close components that differ significantly in magnitude, the limitation of the sampling duration, the probable ill-conditioning of certain structured matrices.
We show how a validated exponential analysis add-on, for use with any standard exponential analysis method, offers a lot of advantages in the context of these challenges. The add-on uses an alias-free decimation technique and essentially combines the basics of de Prony’s method for exponential fitting with the theory of Padé approximation theory.
