This user guide serves as a companion to Digital Spectral Analysis, Second Edition (Dover Publications, 2019), illustrating all the text's techniques and algorithms, plus time versus frequency analysis. The spectral demonstrations use MATLAB software that encompasses the full experience from inputting signal sources, interactively setting technique parameters and processing with those parameters, and choosing from a variety of plotting techniques to display the results. The processing functions and scripts have been coded to automatically handle sample data that is either real-valued or complex-valued, permitting the user to simply modify the demonstration scripts to input their own data for analysis.
Four integrated software categories support the demonstrations. These are the main MATLAB spectral demonstration scripts, supporting MATLAB plotting scripts, MATLAB processing functions listed in this guide, and signal sample data sources. Scripts and demonstration data files can be found on the Dover website for free downloading; see the Introduction for details.
