Applications of differential phase statistics to studies of C3 and spread spectrum communications
Abstract
Three reports have been written under this second year of the contract and are listed in the next section as Papers No. 6, 7, and 8. Paper No. 6 addresses the classical and very complicated problem of finding the probability density function at the output of an RC filter when the input is a binary random telegraph signal whose intervals are described by a renewal process. Paper No. 7 focuses on a particular case in which the desired probability density is the solution of a rather formidable thirdorder differential equation with nonconstant coefficients. A closed form solution is found for one special value of a system characteristics parameter, and a series solution is obtained for general values of the this parameter. Paper No. 8 is concerned with developing methods for calculating the solution to a fourth order differential equation. Although the theory of such equations is well known, a prohibitive amount of algebra is required to determine the coefficients in series solutions, and a computer method is developed in which the algebra is circumvented. The method is quite general, and in an appendix is applied to Bessel's differential equation and, quite surprisingly, a new second solution to Bessel's equation is obtained which does not appear to have been previously noticed.
