6. A Survey of Fields of Application of the Cyclostationarity Paradigm

Many distinct fields of application of the theory of cyclostationary time-series analysis are identified on the Home Page, and the number of research papers found by a carefully performed web search is used there as a metric for the apparent level of activity involving cyclostationarity in each of these fields. However, specific research papers are not singled out there as worthy examples. In contrast, the purpose of the present page is to direct readers to a single source where many fine examples are cited.

The research required for this section was recently completed and reported in a new book on cyclostationarity. This book, entitled Cyclostationary Processes and Time Series: Theory, Applications, and Generalizationsis the most comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of the entire field of cyclostationarity (including its generalizations), and it is written by today’s foremost developer and chronicler of advances in cyclostationarity. Chapters 9 and 10 include a survey of fields of application of the cyclostationarity paradigm, and identify on the order of 100 distinct applications and cite about 500 published papers addressing these applications. A sampling of the application areas identified is given here and includes the pages where this material can be found.
