What is psuedogaussian noise? I have heard that it is
anotherb term for "white" noise.
White noise (in the context of sound) is the presence of sound waves of
equal intensity for all frequencies (usually in the audible range from about
15 to 20,000 hertz). I assume that "psuedogaussian" noise is the presence of
sound waves whose intensity centers about an average frequency and decreases
in intensity in a gaussian distribution. That is: ~ exp(-(nu-nu avg.))^2
where nu is the frequency and nu avg. is the average frequency.
