On the Statistical Estimation of Frequency Response Function

  • Hirotugu Akaike

Part of the Springer Series in Statistics book series (SSS)


At present, the spectral method is used very commonly for the analysis.of an electrical or mechanical system. The spectral method is used not only for the estimation of the individual spectral density functions of the input and output of the system but also for the estimation of the frequency characteristics of the system.
