Wavelet-analysis of chirps


The paper discusses the possibilities of studying of rhythmic processes with linearly changed frequencies («chirps») based on the wavelet-analysis. Limitations of the continuous wavelet-transformation in the analysis of superpositions of signals with linear frequency modulation are formulated. E?ects of the interference and the modulation of rhythmic processes are considered.
