Frequency spectra, Signal detection, Signal processing


The particular coherent data processor which is to be discussed relies heavily upon several basic concepts. These concepts represent a departure from conventional practice and hence the theoretical description must await their presentation in order to gain some continuity. We will accordingly present the underlying assumptions and signal physics prior to description of the processor itself.
