Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    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.
