The power spectrum of the simulated signal is smoothed with a window given by the number of samples NThe power spectrum of the simulated signal is smoothed with a window given by the number of samples N The autocorrelation function of the simulated signal Rz(m)= 0 for m>|N|The autocorrelation function of the simulated signal Rz(m)= 0 for m>|N| Computer simulation of Complex Gaussian process Matlab: CsignalDemo.m

Properties of power spectrum estimate Fractional variance = 1 independent of the window form and size G N (ω 1 ) and G N (ω 2 ) are uncorrelated when |ω 1 -ω 2 | > 1/N Increasing window length N gives better frequency resolution, but no decrease in variance Smooth window functions give lower side lobe level, but wider main lobe than the rectangular window Decrease in variance can be obtained by averaging spectral estimates from different data segments.
