Ticket #169 – Description
v2 v3 14 14 P = X + iY = R(cos(theta) + isin(theta)) 15 15 16 where R is the distance from the origin to the point P, and theta is the angle between the X axis and the line OP, measured counterclockwise.16 where R is the distance from the origin O to the point P, and theta is the angle between the X axis and the line OP, measured counterclockwise. 17 17 18 18 == Representing complex numbers as 2 reals == … … 26 26 At the most raw level, radars generate time series of I (inphase) and Q (quadrature) signals. These two signal components are considered to comprise a complex number. 27 27 28 Additionally, the spectra of radar signals are stored as complex numbers.28 Additionally, the spectra and covariances of radar signals are stored as complex numbers. 29 29 30 30 Because of the very large dynamic range of radar signals (up to 10 orders of magnitude), these complex numbers are often stored as power, in log units, and phase, in degrees.
