Paper Abstract

Several different approaches for joint detection/estimation of amplitude and frequency modulated signals embedded in stationary random noise with prescribed spectral density are considered and compared. Matched filter approaches are compared to time-frequency and time scale based approaches, together with “reassigned” versions. Particular attention is paid to the case of the so-called “power-law chirps”, characterized by monomial and polynomial amplitude and frequency functions. As target application, the problem of gravitational waves at interferometric detectors is considered.
