Paper Abstract

We present a discussion of methods based on the complex cross- spectrum and the application of these methods to the analysis of speech. The cross spectral methods developed here are an extension of methods developed in the 1980s by one of the authors for accurately estimating stationary and cyclo-stationary parameters of signals buried deep in the noise. Since speech is non-stationary and therefore supports very little integration, the methods have been re-developed to address issues such as non-stationarity, harmonic structures and rapidly changing resonance Cross-spectral methods are presented as complex valued time-frequency surface methods which provide signal parameter estimation by taking advantage of signal structure. These methods have proven to be very powerful.
