Time­frequency analysis of nonstationary processes: concepts of wavelets and empirical modes

A comparation of wavelets and empirical modes concepts is performed that represent the most perspective tools to study the structure of nonstationary multimode processes. Their advantages over the classical methods for time series analysis and restrictions of both approaches are discussed that needs to be known for correct interpretation of the obtained results. New possibilities in the study of signals structure at the presence of noise are illuctrated for digital single-channel experimental data of prospecting seismology.
