  Gaussian noise - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gaussian noise is noise that has a probability density function (pdf) of the normal distribution (a.k.a.
Gaussian noise is properly defined as noise with a Gaussian amplitude distribution.

 White noise - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term white noise is also commonly applied to a noise signal in the spatial domain which has zero autocorrelation over the relevant space dimensions.
Gaussianity refers to the way signal values are distributed, while the term 'white' refers to correlations at two distinct times, which are independent of the noise amplitude distribution.
White noise has also been used in electronic music, where it is used either directly or as an input for a filter to create other types of noise signal.

 Additive white Gaussian noise - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In communications, the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel model is one in which the only impairment is the linear addition of wideband or white noise with a constant spectral density (expressed as watts per hertz of bandwidth) and a Gaussian distribution of amplitude.
Wideband Gaussian noise comes from many natural sources, such as the thermal vibrations of atoms in antennas, fl body radiation from the earth and other warm objects, and from celestial sources such as the sun.
It is not a good model for most terrestrial links because of multipath, terrain blocking, interference, etc. However for terrestrial path modeling, AWGN is commonly used to simulate background noise of the channel under study, in addition to multipath, terrain blocking, interference, ground clutter and self interference that modern radio systems encounter in terrestrial operation.

 The Gaussian Processes Web Site
The simplest uses of Gaussian process models are for (the conjugate case of) regression with Gaussian noise.
Gaussian processes are in my view the simplest and most obvious way of defining flexible Bayesian regression and classification models, but despite some past usage, they appear to have been rather neglected as a general-purpose technique.
We derive novel analytic expressions for the predictive mean and variance for Gaussian kernel shapes under the assumption of a Gaussian input distribution in the static case, and of a recursive Gaussian predictive density in iterative forecasting.

 Random Electrical Noise: A Literature Survey
To verify that a noise source is indeed producing thermal noise, it may be useful to "short out" the source resistance and verify a marked reduction in resulting noise (hopefully to under 1/10 of the original value).
Thus, the noise is identical to shot noise associated with a dc current twice as large as the reverse saturation current of the diode.
The noise seems to be generated by a noise current generator in parallel with the dynamic resistance of the diode." (p.

 [No title]
The noise is modeled as a mixture of Gaussian distributions, and the expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm is used to derive estimates for the model parameters.
The details of the signal and noise environment are explained in \cite{dretar}, but the key result is that the BER of the maximal ratio combiner does not improve, and thus remains poor, as more antennas are added, while the new receiver performs better with each new antenna that is added.
Note that Gaussian noise is a special case of the Gaussian mixture pdf, so our receiver is capable of adapting to Gaussian noise and performing the linear processing that is optimum.

 Spatial Filters - Gaussian Smoothing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The idea of Gaussian smoothing is to use this 2-D distribution as a `point-spread' function, and this is achieved by convolution.
In theory, the Gaussian distribution is non-zero everywhere, which would require an infinitely large convolution kernel, but in practice it is effectively zero more than about three standard deviations from the mean, and so we can truncate the kernel at this point.
The effect of Gaussian smoothing is to blur an image, in a similar fashion to the mean filter.

Noise are random background events which have to be dealt with in every system processing real signals.
Another common form of noise is data drop-out noise (commonly referred to as intensity spikes, speckle or salt and pepper noise).

 DaqGen - Gaussian Noise
Gaussian noise is really "white", just like the White noise source, in the sense that it has equal energy at all frequencies.
Note that in one respect this Gaussian source does not provide a "true" Gaussian normal distribution, and you should be glad of that: The true Gaussian requires values that extend to infinity in both directions, even though they might be very infrequent.
The central peak of the histogram is thus proportionally higher, and all features of the Gaussian curve are constricted toward the center by the same proportion.

 Weakly Non-Gaussian Processes in a-Si:H Conductance Noise
The effects upon the noise of annealing and aging the sample as well as the time evolution of the second spectrum upon application of an electrical field suggest that sample microstructure and field induced processes may play roles in inducing correlations among fluctuators.
The differences between periods of RTSN and periods of flicker noise thus are revealed to be differences in the relative importance of phase-correlated processes to overall noise production.
The details of the experimental setup for collecting noise data on a-Si:H samples are described in Section II, and the results of applying the signal analysis techniques discussed in Section I to several representative noise measurements are presented in Section III.

 Introduction
Impulsive noise occurs in indoor and outdoor environments due to a variety of sources [3, 4].
Middleton and others [7, 8] have shown that the Gaussian mixture distribution model is accurate for many impulsive noise environments, while Redner and Walker [9] and others [10] have shown that the EM algorithm has attractive computational features when applied to Gaussian mixture distributions.
The details of the signal and noise environment are explained in [6], but the key result is that the BER of the maximal ratio combiner does not improve, and thus remains poor, as more antennas are added, while the new receiver performs better with each new antenna that is added.

Additive Gausian noise adds a normal Gaussian curve with mean 0 and standard deviation specified by parameter, "sigma", to the input image.
Regardless of the original image, because we are adding a normal Gaussian curve to the image, subtracting original image from the output should give us the Gaussian curve with mean 0 and standard diviation sigma back.
In this case, adding a positive constant value such that the mean is shifted to 128 from 0, but standard deviation stays the same.
