Sine-wave fitting is usually done with least-squares minimization in the time domain. This can be slow when the number of samples is large (105 - 106 or more). It is shown that the fit can be done more effectively in the frequency domain using the Fourier transform of windowed data. This paper shows that using a Blackman-Harris window, it is enough to process just a few sampl... View full abstract»
