Add noise for clearer signals

This post was originally published on this site

Adding just the right amount of noise can improve signal to noise ratio in certain non-linear systems. The effect is known as ‘stochastic resonance’, where mixing of noise and signal in the system non-linearity can sometimes push a previously buried signal just above the noise floor. Now researchers at Penn State University have exploited it …
