Abstract : A method for spectrum analysis by complex cumulants comprises the steps of receiving a signal, Fourier transforming the signal to form a series of complex Fourier coefficients, forming complex cumulants from the series of complex Fourier coefficients, and displaying the cumulants in a form wherein the non-Gaussian components of the signal are emphasized.
