A series representation for continuous-time quaternion random signals is given. The series expansion is based on augmented statistics and provides uncorrelated scalar real-valued random variables. The proposed technique implies a dimension reduction of the four-dimensional original problem to a one-dimensional problem. As a particular case, the quaternion Karhunen-Loève expansion is obtained. Finally, two illustrative applications to the quaternion widely linear detection and estimation problems are presented.
