Abstract : An optimal phase demodulator is realized by sequentially calculating the Fourier coefficients of the conditional density of the phase and phase rate given the observations. The point mass method of carrying the density and its resultant estimate is shown to be the same as that of the Fourier filter. The advantage of the Fourier filter is that it produces estimates eight times faster than the point mass filter while retaining fidelity. (Author)
