Model number


Spill over of energy into adjacent frequencies is illustrated.


 A series is constructed from the following function:

 input = 10*cos(2*PI*t*f1)+20*sin(2*PI*t*f2)+randomg()
 where f1 = 26/(t.ct* and f2 = 28/(t.ct*
 The periodogram is computed. Then using loops, f1 and f2 are
 increased by a small amount:

 f1 = 26.571428/(t.ct* and f2 = 28.571428/(t.ct*

 The periodogram now shows leakage of energy from the original
 two peaks into adjacent frequencies and the two frequencies
 are not resolved. This is seen on plotpage Periodogram by
 running Loops. A partial solution is to sample for a longer
 time to resolve the frequencies, but this may not resolve
 the leakage problem.


fig 1

This is a periodogram of an input function with frequencies which are exactly matched by the Fourier transform frequencies (solid line with circles). Then an input function is generated with slightly different frequencies and the energy spills over into adjacent frequencies and the two modified frequencies are not resolved.




The equations for this model may be viewed by running the JSim model applet and clicking on the Source tab at the bottom left of JSim's Run Time graphical user interface. The equations are written in JSim's Mathematical Modeling Language (MML). See the Introduction to MML and the MML Reference Manual.
