# What is an analytic signal

## Analytical signal

A **analytical signal** is a complex-valued function of time in signal theory, the imaginary part of which is the Hilbert transform of the real part. The designation *analytically* expresses that the function is differentiable in the complex (see analytical function). This means that in contrast to a real signal, no negative frequencies occur in the spectrum of an analytical signal. The analytical signal represents a special case from the group of monogenic signals.

Applications of analytical signals in signal processing are in the area of single sideband modulation.

### definition

Is *x*(*t*) a real time signal with its Fourier transform*X*(jω), then a spectrum can be derived from it *X*_{a}(jω) can be obtained with purely positive frequencies by multiplying with the step function σ (ω).

Here, ω denotes the angular frequency and j the imaginary unit. The inverse Fourier transform takes place according to the convention of asymmetrical normalization. In addition, the formation specification for the analytical time signal is shown *x*_{a}(*t*) from the time signal *x*(*t*).

Ask the represents the Hilbert transformation. In the case of an analytical signal, the imaginary part has no additional information content in relation to the real part.

- example

The real time signal *x*(*t*), consisting of a cosine oscillation, has the analytical signal *x*_{a}(*t*). The Fourier transform of Euler's identity shows that *x*_{a}(*t*) has a one-sided spectrum with no negative frequencies.

Like any complex number, the analytic signal can also be expressed in a complex polar representation.

Thereby γ (*t*) as the *complex envelopes*, *A.*(*t*) as the *Amount envelope* and φ (*t*) as the *Momentary phase* designated.

This representation is important in communications engineering, since it can be used to control a polar modulator, whereas the real and imaginary part is suitable for controlling a Cartesian modulator (IQ modulator). Through the interaction with an appropriately designed power amplifier (English*Power amplifier* abbreviated *PA*), the former system has a better efficiency.

A modulated signal *m*(*t*) is derived from the carrier frequency and the complex envelope is generated according to the following equation.

### modulation

The carrier frequency can be obtained by multiplication a complex signal imprint, creating the complex modulated signal arises. The demodulation is done by multiplication with a complex pointer that rotates in the opposite direction.

The real part and the imaginary part each require their own transmission path. In practice, this is often not done. Calculation shows that this is the case with the modulated signal *m*(*t*) is an analytical signal, i.e. the imaginary part is redundant to the real part, which means that only one of the two has to be transmitted.

Provided with *x*(*t*) is a band-limited signal whose frequency components are above have an amplitude of zero, then the following Hilbert transformation applies:

The imaginary part can be regenerated on the receiver side by the Hilbert transformation.

In addition to the method shown, there are other options for generating and resolving the same modulated signal.
