Thread Subject:
bandlimited Gaussian signal

Subject: bandlimited Gaussian signal

How can I create a bandlimited white Gaussian signal?

For example, what can I do if I want to construct a Gaussian signal with zero mean and extending over the frequency band [-0.75pi, 0.75pi]?

Thanks a lot.

Find a reference that gives you the relationship between the
spread of a Gaussian time function and the spread of it's
Gaussian Fourier transform. Then find the level at
which you are defining the boundaries of the passband
(e.g., -3dB, -6dB, or -10dB).

The rest should follow more easily.

Hope this helps.

I missed the adjective "white" which indicates you are not looking
for
a deterministic Gaussian pulse but a noise signal with a flat
spectrum
and a Gaussian probability distribution.

Sorry.

However, if there is no answer when I come back tonight, I will
try to help.
