Analysis of multicomponent polynomial phase signals
MetadataShow full item record
While the theory of estimation of monocomponent polynomial phase signals is well established, the theoretical and methodical treatment of multicomponent polynomial phase signals (mc-PPSs) is limited. In this paper, we investigate several aspects of parameter estimation for mc-PPSs and derive the Crameacuter-Rao bound. We show the limits of existing techniques and then propose a nonlinear least squares (NLS) approach. We also motivate the use the Nelder-Mead simplex algorithm for minimizing the nonlinear cost function. The slight increase in computational complexity is a tradeoff for improved mean square error performance, which is evidenced by simulation results.
