Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper reviews and compares three different linear algebraic signal subspace techniques for angle of arrival estimation. These include a polynomial matrix approach to multiple signal classification (MUSIC), a parameterised spatial covariance matrix approach, and an auto-focussing based version of coherent signal subspace estimation applied to MUSIC. These approaches are expressed in the framework of polynomial space-time covariance matrices and their polynomial eigenvalue decomposition, thus highlighting their commonalities and differences. Simulation results comparing the accuracy of these broadband angle of arrival estimation methods are presented.
