Paper Abstract

As with the case of instantaneous frequency, it is often difficult to interpret the instantaneous bandwidth of most signals: both quantities typically range beyond the spectral support of the signal, yielding the paradox that the instantaneous bandwidth (and frequency) can be greater than the global bandwidth of the signal. A new definition of instantaneous frequency that does not suffer from this difficulty has recently been given, and we build on those results here to obtain a new definition of instantaneous bandwidth. Kernel constraints for a Cohen-class time-frequency distribution to yield these new results for its conditional moments are also given.
