USING NOISE TO IMPROVE MEASUREMENT AND INFORMATION PROCESSING

Solenna Blanchard, David Rousseau, François Chapeau-Blondeau

Abstract

This paper proposes a synthetic presentation on the phenomenon of stochastic resonance or improvement through the action of noise. Several situations and mechanisms are reported, demonstrating a constructive role of noise, in the context of measurement and sensors, data and information processing, with examples on digital images.
