Paper Abstract

In this paper, the problem of choosing a method for time-frequency signal analysis is discussed. It is shown that a natural approach leads to the introduction of the concepts of the analytic signal and in-stantaneous frequency. The Wigner-Ville Distribution (WVD) is a method of analysis based upon these concepts and it is shown that an accurate Time-Frequency representation of a signal can be obtained by using the WVD for the analysis of a class of signals referred to as "asymptotic". For this class of signals, the instantaneous frequency describes an important physical parameter characteristic of the process under investigation. The WVD procedure for signal analysis and synthesis is outlined and its properties are reviewed for deterministic and random signals.
