Analog Signal
• Mathematically, a signal is a function of time.
• Most fundamental signal – sinusoidal
• Any periodic signal is composed of may different sine and
cosine signals.
• Three parameters
– Amplitude
• The absolute value of how up the wave goes
– Angular Frequency
• How many times the signal repeats itself within a unit of time.
– Phase Angle
• Phase in waves is the fraction of wave cycles that has elapsed after an arbitrary point.
Continuous time VS discrete
time signals
• Continuous time signals are defined at any value of time
• Discrete time signals are defined only at discrete values of time.
• Continuous time signal takes a value at every point in time –
discrete time signal takes values on at discrete points in time. For
the rest of the points in time , we don’t know the value.
• Continuous time signal contains infinite values of time and the
corresponding amplitude.
• Discrete time signal only contains
Periodic discrete-timesignals
x[n] is periodic if thereexists a positiveinteger T, such that
x[n +T] =x[n], for all n.
Fundamental period: smallest positiveinteger T, such that theabove
holds.

Example: x[n] =A cos(Ωn +θ) is periodic if and only if thereare
positiveintegers q and r, such that Ω=2πq/ r (in other words, if Ωis a
rational multipleof 2π).

Nyquist Rate
• A signals sampling rate must be twice of the highest frequency
contained within that signal.
• Nyquist frequency = half the sampling frequency of a signal processing
system (a system which samples a signal).
• So, if the highest frequency contained within a signal is 40 Hz then that
signal must be sampled at a rate of nyquist rate (80 times/sec) to
prevent antialiasing.
Time Domain VS Frequency Domain
• Time Domain is a curve of Amplitude (Y – axis ) VS Time (X - Axis)
• Frequency Domain is a discrete or continuous thing of magnitude (Y -
axis) vs Frequency(Hz) (X-axis)

Discrete Fourier Transform(Example)
• Fourier Transform tells me
– Which frequency components are present in a signal
– What is the amplitude and phase of that frequency component in the signal
• Here is a sample code of fourier transform
fs = 100; % Sample frequency (Hz)
t = 0:1/fs:10-1/fs; % 10 sec sample
x = (1.3)*sin(2*pi*15*t) + (1.7)*sin(2*pi*30*t); % 40 Hz component
% + (2.5)*randn(size(t)); % Gaussian noise;

m = length(x); % Window length
n = pow2(nextpow2(m)); % Transform length
y = fft(x,n); % DFT
f = (0:n-1)*(fs/n) % Frequency range
power = y.*conj(y)/n; % Power of the DFT this is done to take all amplitudes in the positive
direction

y0 = fftshift(y); % Rearrange y values
f0 = (-n/2:n/2-1)*(fs/n); % 0-centered frequency range
power0 = y0.*conj(y0)/n; % 0-centered power

Multi-resolution analysis

The time window is not fixed anymore.

MRA analyzes different frequency at different time
resolution. So, every spectral component is not
resolved equally.
• MRA gives
– At high frequency : Good time resolution but poor freq
resolution
– At low frequency : Good freq resolution but poor time resolution

The above is tolerable when we have high freq
component for short period of time and low freq
component for long period of time.

Most of the practical signals are of this type.
Wavelet Transform
• We have looked at Fourier Transform – now it is time to look at
others.
• A few other signal processing techniques are
– Hilbert transform
– Wigner distributions
– Wavelet transform

THE LIST IS LONG!!!!
• Each one has its own characteristics and utilities.
• We will particularly look at the Wavelet Transform.
• What makes it different and possibly in cases more useful than
Fourier Transform
• What are the uses of Fourier Transform.
Wavelet Transform

We can do fourier Transform
– Fourier Transform is a reversible transform– we can go back and
forth between time domain and frequency domain
– But we cannot have both at the same time – in time domain
signal we do not have frequency information and in frequency
domain (fourier transformed signal ) ,we do not have time
information.
– What if we want to have both at the same time?
– That means fourier transform can tell us which frequency
component is contained in the signal but it cannot say when it
occurs in time in the signal.
When in time the
signal with this
frequency
component occurs??
When in time the
signal with this
frequency
component
occurs??
When do we need WT??

First we have to understand – when we don’t need the
WT ??
– When the signal is stationary (stationary signals are very
important in signal analysis)
– Definition - The signal whose frequency components do not
change with time is called stationary signal. In other words, the
frequency components of the signal do not change with time.
– So, all the frequency components exist all the time – so one
does not need to know which frequency component comes into
play at what point in time.
– Ex : x(t)=cos(2*pi*10*t)+cos(2*pi*25*t)+cos(2*pi*50*t)
+cos(2*pi*100*t)
• There are 4 frequency components 10Hz, 25Hz, 50Hz and 100Hz
• These 4 components exist at every point in time.

When do we need WT??

But look at the following signal. It does not have all the
frequency component present at all the time!!!

but does not say at which point in
time these 4 frequencies occur
When do we need Wavelet
Transform??

So, for non-stationary signals, if we don’t need the
time information related to the occurrence of each
component frequency, Fourier transform is enough.

Otherwise, go for the wavelet transform.

Some practical non-stationary signals
– ECG - ecocardiogram
– EEG - electroencephalograph
– EMG – electromyogram

Wavelet transform gives time frequency information at
the same time. Some other transforms gives it too.
– Short time fourier analysis
– Wigner transform
Do I need Wavelet Transform

Our need – spectral analysis of accelerometer reading
of human gait
– Is human gait a non-stationary signal?
– Is it possible that at certain points in one gait cycle, some
frequency components occur ?
– We don’t know the answer – we need to figure out.
What is resolution????

In this discussion – resolution is directly analogous to
precision.

Precision = how near you can go to the exact value
– 99.999999999999% = this is high precision when exact value is
100
• Accuracy = Is the value you are producing correct??
– f(x) = x^2 ; f(2) should be 4, you produce 3; so, not accurate.

Generally, we need higher resolution(precision) for
smaller values
– f = 2.3; if we say 2.1 then we are loosing (2.3-2.1 = 0.2/2.1 =
10% ) a lot for such a small range
– So we need to be more precise (have higher resolution) for
smaller values

We can have lower resolution at higher values
– f = 10000;if we say f = 9950 then(10000-9950 = 50/9950 =
0.5%) , so we do not loose much.
– So, we can afford less resolution at higher values of frequency
Resolution contd…

In signal analysis = higher frequency components occur
less time
– Freq is higher = so low resolution is OK. Time is smaller, so high
reolution is needed

In signal analysis = lower frequency components occur
for more time
– Time is higher = so lower resolution is OK, frequency is smaller
= so higher resolution is needed

Wavelet gives us just that thing for lower values (of
either time or frequency) it gives higher resolution.
Example Non Stationary Signal
• x = (1.3)*sin(2*pi*15*power(t,2)) +
(1.7)*sin(2*pi*30*power(t,2));

The input signal
The mother wavelet
Fourier Transform VS Wavelet Transform
The mother
wavelet is
translated
the beginning to
the end of the
input signal
Then the mother
wavelet is
scaled(dilated or
compacted) and
the whole
translation
process is
repeated again.
Similarity between FT and WT

Both breaks a signal to its constituent parts for
analysis.
Classification of WT
Actually there is nothing continuous about scale and translation when it comes to
computer simulation of wavelet transform. Because computers does not generate
continuous points – it generates discrete points. We can only say that CWT is much
Smoother than DWT.
Result analysis

How to interpret the results of the wavelet transform.

First we try to understand what the MATLAB function
returns
• Co-efficients = cwt(x(t),scaleRange,waveletName)
– computes the wavelet transform of the input signal x(t) with the
positive scaleRange using the mother wavelet with
waveletName
– Ex: Co-efficients = cwt(x(t),1:128,’haar’) – mother wavelet is
haar, the scale is 1 to 128 .So, there are 128 rows of output co-
efficient values where each row corresponds to 1 scale. Column
dimension each row = duration length of input signal.

Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT)
• Takes a discrete signal in time domain – transform the signal into
discrete frequency domain representation.
• 2 concepts – Discrete Fourier Transform(DFT), Discrete time Fourier
Transform(DTFT).
– Discrete time signal  [DFT]  Discrete Frequency Domain
– Discrete Time Signal  [DTFT]  Continuous frequency domain
• In DTFT, frequency becomes continuous but in DFT , frequency is
discrete.
• We are working with DFT only.

• So. . • Nyquist frequency = half the sampling frequency of a signal processing system (a system which samples a signal).Nyquist Rate • A signals sampling rate must be twice of the highest frequency contained within that signal. if the highest frequency contained within a signal is 40 Hz then that signal must be sampled at a rate of nyquist rate (80 times/sec) to prevent antialiasing.

Time Domain VS Frequency Domain • Time Domain is a curve of Amplitude (Y – axis ) VS Time (X . Craig 18 Converting from time domain to frequency domain .Axis) • Frequency Domain is a discrete or continuous thing of magnitude (Y axis) vs Frequency(Hz) (X-axis) Time Domain & Frequency Domain K.

Short-time Fourier Transform • Sample code for STFT .

Multi-resolution analysis • The time window is not fixed anymore. So. every spectral component is not resolved equally. . • MRA gives – At high frequency : Good time resolution but poor freq resolution – At low frequency : Good freq resolution but poor time resolution • The above is tolerable when we have high freq component for short period of time and low freq component for long period of time. • MRA analyzes different frequency at different time resolution. • Most of the practical signals are of this type.

What makes it different and possibly in cases more useful than Fourier Transform What are the uses of Fourier Transform. A few other signal processing techniques are – Hilbert transform – Short-time Fourier transform (more about this later) – Wigner distributions – Radon Transform – Wavelet transform – THE LIST IS LONG!!!! • • • • Each one has its own characteristics and utilities.Wavelet Transform • • We have looked at Fourier Transform – now it is time to look at others. We will particularly look at the Wavelet Transform. .

Wavelet Transform • We can do fourier Transform – Fourier Transform is a reversible transform– we can go back and forth between time domain and frequency domain – But we cannot have both at the same time – in time domain signal we do not have frequency information and in frequency domain (fourier transformed signal ) . – What if we want to have both at the same time? – That means fourier transform can tell us which frequency component is contained in the signal but it cannot say when it occurs in time in the signal.we do not have time information. When in time the signal with this frequency component occurs?? When in time the signal with this frequency component occurs?? .

all the frequency components exist all the time – so one does not need to know which frequency component comes into play at what point in time. – Ex : x(t)=cos(2*pi*10*t)+cos(2*pi*25*t)+cos(2*pi*50*t) +cos(2*pi*100*t) • There are 4 frequency components 10Hz. the frequency components of the signal do not change with time. .When do we need WT?? • First we have to understand – when we don’t need the WT ?? – When the signal is stationary (stationary signals are very important in signal analysis) – Definition .The signal whose frequency components do not change with time is called stationary signal. In other words. – So. 50Hz and 100Hz FFT • These 4 components exist at every point in time. 25Hz.

It does not have all the frequency component present at all the time!!! The frequency changes with time!!! Consider another one FFT of this Results in 0 – 300 ms 100 Hz sine 300 – 600 ms has a 50Hz sine 800 – 6001000 has 800 ms a 10 Hz has a sine 25Hz sine Shows the 4 component frequency – but does not say at which point in time these 4 frequencies occur .When do we need WT?? • But look at the following signal.

• Some practical non-stationary signals – ECG .• So.ecocardiogram – EEG . go for the wavelet transform. Some other transforms gives it too. if we don’t need the time information related to the occurrence of each component frequency. Fourier transform is enough. • Otherwise.electroencephalograph – EMG – electromyogram When do we need Wavelet Transform?? • Wavelet transform gives time frequency information at the same time. – Short time fourier analysis – Wigner transform . for non-stationary signals.

some frequency components occur ? – We don’t know the answer – we need to figure out.Do I need Wavelet Transform • Our need – spectral analysis of accelerometer reading of human gait – Is human gait a non-stationary signal? – Is it possible that at certain points in one gait cycle. .

What is resolution???? • In this discussion – resolution is directly analogous to precision. • Generally. if we say 2. • Precision = how near you can go to the exact value – 99. so we do not loose much. f(2) should be 4.3-2. not accurate. we can afford less resolution at higher values of frequency .1 = 10% ) a lot for such a small range – So we need to be more precise (have higher resolution) for smaller values • We can have lower resolution at higher values – f = 10000.5%) . you produce 3.999999999999% = this is high precision when exact value is 100 • Accuracy = Is the value you are producing correct?? – f(x) = x^2 . – So.1 then we are loosing (2.if we say f = 9950 then(10000-9950 = 50/9950 = 0. so.1 = 0.3.2/2. we need higher resolution(precision) for smaller values – f = 2.

so high reolution is needed • In signal analysis = lower frequency components occur for more time – Time is higher = so lower resolution is OK. . frequency is smaller = so higher resolution is needed • Wavelet gives us just that thing for lower values (of either time or frequency) it gives higher resolution.Resolution contd… • In signal analysis = higher frequency components occur less time – Freq is higher = so low resolution is OK. Time is smaller.

Fourier Transform VS Wavelet Transform

The mother wavelet is translated gradually from the beginning to the end of the input signal Then the mother wavelet is scaled(dilated or compacted) and the whole translation process is repeated again.

Similarity between FT and WT
• Both breaks a signal to its constituent parts for analysis.

Classification of WT

Actually there is nothing continuous about scale and translation when it comes to omputer simulation of wavelet transform. Because computers does not generate ontinuous points – it generates discrete points. We can only say that CWT is much Smoother than DWT.
