Title: Higher-Order Moments and Moment Spectra for Different Types of Deterministic Signals
Author(s): Teofil Oroian   Ion Bădoi            

Abstract: The second-order statistics is a very important tool in the signal processing area. Also, the higher-order statistics is a new interesting tool that is used to reveal some additional information about the analyzed signal. The higher-order moments and moment spectra of the deterministic signal are defined followed by a presentation of their properties. The values of the triple correlation functions and the bispectra are determined and they are analyzed for some particular signals.

Keywords: higher-order statistics, higher-order moments, moment spectra, bispectrum, deterministic signal.
