Estimating the parameters of Burst-type signals
Swagata Nandi and Debasis Kundu
In this paper, we study a model which exhibits burst-type features such as ECG signals, under certain condition. The model is proposed by Sharma and Sircar (2001) and we call it burst-type signals. It is a generalization of the fixed amplitude sinusoidal model. The amplitudes take a certain deterministic function. We assume that the error random variables are independent and identically distributed. The least square method is proposed to estimate the unknown parameters. We show that the least squares estimators are strongly consistent and find their asymptotic distribution as Gaussian. Some numerical results based on simulations results are reported for illustrative purposes.
