Re: About importance of "phase" in sound recognition

Whoa. I just drifted off there.

500Hz at 1, .25 at 500-4 and 500+4

Or you can use 1khz and then use 1000+4 and 1000-4.

I believe I suffered a change of center frequency between the first and second parts of my post. Sorry.

Hello Emad, from my quick reading of this paper (since the topic is
quite interesting to me) I notice the following (others feel free to
correct me if I get this wrong):
- to reconstruct a N-dimensional (complex) vector from magnitude only
coefficients you need N^2 coefficients (N(N+1)/2 for real vectors).
An earlier paper (in SPIE 2007) talks about sparse representations
needing as little as 2N-1 coefficients (in the real case). I am not
certain yet if they have generalized it to the complex case, and it
this only applies to a specific set of frames.
- reconstruction from magnitude only will always be within a root of
unity (that is, the solution will be a set of vectors that differ from
each other by e^{-i\phi} \phi=0...2\pi as one expects.

Thanks for the link though!  I am still working in reconstruction from
the basis of Griffin&Lim's iterative reconstruction algorithm, so this
is quite interesting to me.
