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.

In this paper we study the impact of polynomial or broadband subspace decompositions on any subsequent processing, which here uses the example of a broadband angle of arrival estimation technique using a recently proposed polynomial MUSIC (P-MUSIC) algorithm. The subspace decompositions are performed by iterative polynomial EVDs, which differ in their approximations to diagonalise and spectrally majorise s apce-time covariance matrix.We here show that a better diagonalisation has a significant impact on the accuracy of defining broadband signal and noise subspaces, demonstrated by a much higher accuracy of the P-MUSIC spectrum.
