# Line & Noise Removal¶

This page provides a description of the regression.cc class Further documentation is available at the following link:

- Regression-documents: List of presentations and documents

## Overview¶

Regressions enables the subtraction of noise features from a *target*
channel based on the output of one or more *auxiliary* channels (see the
documents above for how it works). The calculation is conducted over
narrow sub-bands (*layers*) of the total bandwidth of the target
channel, with a desired frequency resolution. Performing the calculation
over sub-bands simplifies the problem, reducing the calculation from a
big filter to small ones. Regression also enables the possibility to
consider select the appropriate auxiliary channels for in different
frequency bands. Finally, the output of several auxiliary channels can
be used to perform multi-correlation analysis.

We introduce the following name convention for each single *layer*:

**h**: target (must be a discrete time series)**s**: prediction**x**: one or more auxiliary channels, M is the number of auxiliary channels**a**: filter, with length**2L+1****R**: autocorrelation matrix (2n*2n dimension, n=M(2L+1))**C**: cross-correlation vector (2n=2M(2L+1) dimension)**Lambda, P**: eigen-values and eigen-vectors matrices related to R (2n*2n dimension, n=M(2L+1))**Lambda’**: eigen-values matrix after the application of the regolators

## Implementation¶

The regression class is implemented in the WAT library
and contains the following C++ **struct** :

- Wiener: a structure which contains the values of the filter a.

The following list reports the attributes of regression object:

**kSIZE**: the value of L (half-length of filter)**Edge**: a scratch time applied to the boundaries of segment**chList**: WSeries for each channel**chName**: names of the channels**chMask**: integers storing the frequency layers for each channel shouldbe used**FILTER**: Wiener struct storing the filter for each layer**matrix**: matrix R for each layer**vCROSS**: cross-correlation vector C for each layer**vEIGEN**: matrix Lambda’ for each layer**target**: target time series**rnoise**: prediction (s) in time domain**WNoise**: prediction (s) in Time-Frequency domain**vrank**: rank contribution for each layer and for each channel**vfreq**: central frequency of each layer

A number of functions has been written for the regression method. These are classified into the following groups:

Object Definition | Constructor and destructor |

Channels definition | Inserting target and auxiliary channel |

## Regression examples¶

**Test on Gaussian noise**

```
In these examples target and witness channels are combination of gaussian noises.
These tests have been suggested by reviewers.
We report for each test a plot containing eigen-values and rank for each witness channel.
Usually target channel is sort of type: H = x + w
where w is noise to be cleaned.
So each script report at the end mean and rms of the following time series:
- x
- clean
- clean-x
This because x and clean should be the same channel, instead clean-x should be 0.
```

Test1.C Removal of broadband noise using a single, highly correlated witness channel. Output:

Removal of broadband noise using a single, highly correlated witness channel. You can prepare the channels with the desired correlation this way, for instance: Generate time series w(t) and x(t) each containing Gaussian white noise (unit variance) Construct the witness channel: A(t) = w(t) Construct the target channel: H(t) = x(t) + 0.8*w(t) Compare the ASD (or simply the RMS) of H(t) before and after regression. The regression should be able to reduce the noise amplitude by a factor of 1/sqrt(1^2+0.8^2) = 1/sqrt(1.64) ~ 0.78

Results:

Ratio rms: (0.998905/1.28003)= 0.780374 x : 0.000118281 0.999683 clean : -0.000804828 0.998905 clean-x : -0.000923109 0.0817862

Test2.C Similar, but witness channel includes some uncorrelated noise: Output:

Test 2: Similar, but witness channel includes some uncorrelated noise: Generate white noise time series w(t), x(t), y(t) Witness channel: A(t) = 0.6*y(t) + w(t) Target channel: H(t) = x(t) + 0.8*w(t) Compare the ASD (or simply the RMS) of H(t) before and after regression. Since regression removes the w(t) correlated noise but adds in some y(t) noise from the witness channel, I think the regression should be able to reduce the noise amplitude by a factor of sqrt(1^2+(0.8*0.6)^2)/sqrt(1^2+0.8^2) = sqrt(1.23)/sqrt(1.64) ~ 0.87

Results:

Ratio rms: (1.08211/1.2814)= 0.844474 x : 1.49279e-05 1.00022 clean : 0.000703435 1.08211 clean-x : 0.000688507 0.423346

Test3.C Similar, but witness channel includes more uncorrelated noise: Output:

Test 3: Similar, but witness channel includes more uncorrelated noise: Witness channel: A(t) = y(t) + w(t) Target channel: H(t) = x(t) + 0.8*w(t) Compare the ASD (or simply the RMS) of H(t) before and after regression. Since regression removes the w(t) correlated noise but adds an equal amount of y(t) noise, it should not be able to reduce the noise amplitude in H(t).

Results:

Ratio rms: (1.14762/1.27984)= 0.896693 x : -0.000137184 0.999029 clean : 0.000252871 1.14762 clean-x : 0.000390055 0.572221

Test4.C Similar, but witness channel has mostly uncorrelated noise. Output:

Test 4: Similar, but witness channel has mostly uncorrelated noise. Witness channel: A(t) = y(t) + 0.5*w(t) Target channel: H(t) = x(t) + 0.8*w(t) Trying to do regression would add more noise that it removes. Is the code smart enough to determine this and choose NOT to use this witness channel for regression?

Results:

Ratio rms: (1.22895/1.28215)= 0.958502 x : 0.000117791 1.00031 clean : 0.000277306 1.22895 clean-x : 0.000159515 0.718146

Test5.C Two identical (i.e., redundant) witness channels: Output:

Test 5: Two identical (i.e., redundant) witness channels: Witness channels: A(t) = 0.6*y(t) + w(t) B(t) = A(t) Target channel: H(t) = x(t) + 0.8*w(t) This could be pathological in terms of matrix inversion, but corresponds to a very realistic case of, say, two power-line monitors (with high signal-to-noise) both showing 60 Hz and harmonics, equivalently. The right answer in terms of the regression goal is that we can use EITHER A(t) or B(t) (or any linear combination of them) and achieve the same result as Test 2 above. In other words, I'd like to think that it is harmless to include extra redundant aux channels. So does the code manage to do that? * Try this with hard, soft, and mild regulators *

Results:

HARD: Ratio rms: (1.08188/1.28075)= 0.844727 x : -0.00086732 0.99952 clean : -0.000774834 1.08188 clean-x : 9.24859e-05 0.423357 ------------------- SOFT: Ratio rms: (1.07976/1.28075)= 0.843067 x : -0.00086732 0.99952 clean : -0.0007748 1.07976 clean-x : 9.25191e-05 0.418084 ------------------- MILD: Ratio rms: (1.07982/1.28075)= 0.843122 x : -0.00086732 0.99952 clean : -0.000774804 1.07982 clean-x : 9.2516e-05 0.418233 -------------------

Test6.C Two witness channels, one highly correlated and the other not Output:

Test 6: Two witness channels, one highly correlated and the other not Witness channels: A(t) = y(t) + w(t) B(t) = w(t) Target channel: H(t) = x(t) + 0.8*w(t) Hopefully, the code figures out that it should use B(t) in the regression and ignore A(t). The net reduction in noise should be the same as Test 1 above. * Try this with hard, soft, and mild regulators *

Results:

Test7.C One witness channel with a little uncorrelated noise, other with more Output:

Test 7: One witness channel with a little uncorrelated noise, other with more Generate white noise time series w(t), x(t), y(t), z(t) Witness channels: A(t) = 0.6*y(t) + w(t) B(t) = z(t) + 0.5*w(t) Target channel: H(t) = x(t) + 0.8*w(t) Hopefully, the code figures out that it should use A(t) and ignore B(t). The net reduction in noise should be the same as Test 2 above. * Try this with hard, soft, and mild regulators *

Test8.C Similar, but second witness channel has a very small (but nonzero) correlation Output:

Test 8: Similar, but second witness channel has a very small (but nonzero) correlation Witness channels: A(t) = 0.6*y(t) + w(t) B(t) = z(t) + 0.2*w(t) Target channel: H(t) = x(t) + 0.8*w(t) Hopefully, the code will give the same result as tests 2 and 7 -- i.e. ignore B(t), since trying to use it in the regression would only add noise. * Try this with hard, soft, and mild regulators *

Results:

HARD: Ratio rms: (1.15622/1.2816)= 0.902168 x : 9.92543e-05 1.00016 clean : 0.00050095 1.15622 clean-x : 0.000401696 0.586336 ------------------- SOFT: Ratio rms: (1.08418/1.2816)= 0.84596 x : 9.92543e-05 1.00016 clean : 0.000501103 1.08418 clean-x : 0.000401849 0.426438 ------------------- MILD: Ratio rms: (1.08815/1.2816)= 0.849059 x : 9.92543e-05 1.00016 clean : 0.000501097 1.08815 clean-x : 0.000401843 0.435835 -------------------

Test9.C Two good witness channels measuring different effects Output:

Test 9: Two good witness channels measuring different effects Witness channels: A(t) = w(t) B(t) = v(t) Target channel: H(t) = x(t) + 0.8*w(t) + 0.6*v(t) Compare the ASD (or simply the RMS) of H(t) before and after regression. The regression should be able to reduce the noise amplitude by a factor of 1/sqrt(1^2+0.8^2+0.6^2) = 1/sqrt(2.00) ~ 0.71

Results:

Test10.C Two good witness channels plus one slightly correlated one Output:

Test 10: Two good witness channels plus one slightly correlated one Witness channels: A(t) = w(t) B(t) = v(t) C(t) = y(t) + 0.5*z(t) Target channel: H(t) = x(t) + 0.8*w(t) + 0.6*v(t) + z(t) Compare the ASD (or simply the RMS) of H(t) before and after regression. Although C(t) is correlated, using it in the regression would add more noise than it removes. So hopefully the code will use A and B to regress but ignore C. The result, then, should be the same as Test 9. * Try this with hard, soft, and mild regulators *

Test11.C Two witness channels have some common noise (or environmental signal, but anyway uncorrelated with the GW target channel) between them Output:

Test 11: Two witness channels have some common noise (or environmental signal, but anyway uncorrelated with the GW target channel) between them Witness channels: A(t) = 0.4*y(t) + w(t) + v(t) B(t) = 0.2*z(t) + 0.5*w(t) + v(t) Target channel: H(t) = x(t) + 0.8*w(t) Hopefully, the code figures out that it should subtract a linear combination of A(t) and B(t). If I've done the math right (on paper), the optimal combination is (0.9933)A(t)-(0.7726)B(t). Note that the v(t) noise mostly (but not completely) cancels out in that combination. The w(t) component amplitude in H(t) reduces from 0.8 to 0.195, although the post-regression H(t) also picks up amplitudes of 0.4*0.9933=0.3973 from the y(t) term in A(t), 0.2*0.7726=0.1545 from the z(t) term in B(t), and 0.9933-0.7726=0.2207 from the combined v(t) terms. So the expected reduction in noise amplitude is by a factor of sqrt(1+(0.195)^2+(0.3973)^2+(0.1545)^2+(0.2207)^2)/sqrt(1^2+0.8^2) = sqrt(1.268)/sqrt(1.64) = 0.88 * Try this with hard, soft, and mild regulators *

## NMAPI integration¶

**Integration in NMAPI Virgo tool**

NMAPI (Noise Monitor Application Programming Interface) is a Virgo tool which interfaces various Noise Monitors developed by Virgo scientists. Some documents about NMAPI are in the following links (some are Virgo protected):

- Noise Monitor Application Programming Interface (NMAPI) Software Requirements
- Noise Monitor Applicationrogramming Interface (NMAPI) Development Report
- NMAPI and NoEMi for Advanced Detectors
- Noise Monitor Application rogramming Interface (NMAPI) - Latest developments

All the scripts are located in the Cascina cluster. NMAPI uses condor interface to submit the jobs related for each query received from the web.

Regression integration in NMAPI is dedicated for bilinear correlations of Virgo auxiliary channels with the gravitational one. We considered two carrier channels:

**Pr_power50**for power lines**V1:Pr_B5_ACp**for calibration lines

The results are given in appropriate figure of merits reporting for each
frequency band (1Hz resolution, centered at an integer number of
frequency) the *rank* value of the correlation (rank near to 1, high
correlation).

Regression in NMAPI involves two different output:

- Database query: on a set of selected channels.
- On-the-fly query: on the all possible set of channels.

**Database query**

The idea is to have an online analysis of bi-linear correlation of a small set of defined channel (about 10-20). After saving the rank values on-the-fly, the user can recall the results for the desired period and channels. The code is split in two parts:

The directory which creates the database. An example is on the dir: /users/drago/Regression/VSR4 It is stricly hard-coded, in the example it consider 24 channels on the frequency band of 0-2048 Hz.

- The script which query the database: /a/st7/storage/d001/web/nmapi/NMAPI_scripts/RegressionThe input parameters are:
- An identificative number given by NMAPI
- Auxiliary channel
- Time period: Start and Stop
- Frequency band: Low and High
- Frequency resolution for the output figure (It collects more frequency bins in the same one reporting the maximum value)

The script file is

*Regression.sh*which calls*DrawRankChannel.C*

**On the fly query**

This allows to obtain the bi-linear ranking for each channel in the
frame, at a limited period of a single job. The scripts called by NMAPI
are located in the directory:
*/a/st7/storage/d001/web/nmapi/NMAPI_scripts/Regression_QueryChannel*.
The main script is *Regression_QueryChannel.csh* which call the macro
*Regression_QueryChannel.C*

- An identificative number given by NMAPI
- Auxiliary channel
- Time period: Start and length
- Frequency band: Low and High
- Ranking threshold of results (write frequencies with rank greater than threshold)

## List of constructor and destructor¶

This page shows the list of functions used by the regression class as object constructors and destructors in the c++ language.

- regression::regression
- Default constructor

- regression::regression(const regression&)
- Copy constructor from another regression object

- regression::operator_
- Copy constructor from another regression object

- regression::regression(WSeries<double> &, char*, double fL=0., double fH=0.)
- Constructor inserting target channel as a WSeries object. It calls the

- regression::add function. See also Channels definition
- regression::clear
- Clear the regression object. All the inserted channels are removed.

- regression::_regression
- Default distructor. It calls the function clear()

## Inserting target and auxiliary channels¶

regression::add(WSeries<double> & target, char* name, double fL=0., double fH=0.) Add the target channel. It is possible to specify a desired frequency band. If not, all the frequency band of the target is considered.

regression::add(wavearray<double>& witness, char* name, double fL=0., double fH=0.) Add one auxiliary channel. It is possible to specify a desired frequency band. If not, all the frequency band of the auxiliary is considered.

regression::add(int n, int m, char* name) Add an auxiliary channel as a multiplication of two already inserted channels. The relative frequency band depends on the original channels.

- regression::mask(int n, double flow=0., double fhigh=0.)
Discard a frequency band for a specific channel (both target and auxiliary).

- regression::unmask(int n, double flow=0., double fhigh=0.)
Add a frequency band precedently discarded for a specific channel

(both target and auxiliary)

## Getting attributes¶

For the meaning of the following quantities see Regression-documents

- regression::channel(size_t n) Get time series for channel n.
- regression::getTFmap(int n=0) Get time-frequency wseries for channel n.
- regression::getMatrix(size_t n=0) Get matrix R for a definite layer.
- regression::getVCROSS(size_t n=0) Get matrix C for a definite layer.
- regression::getVEIGEN(int n=-1) Get matrix Lambda for a definite layer.
- regression::getFILTER(char c=’a’, int nT=-1, int nW=-1) extract filter for target index nT and witness nW.
- regression::getNoise Get Prediction s in time domain.
- regression::getWNoise Get prediction s in time-frequency domain.
- regression::getClean Get difference between target and prediction in time domain.
- regression::getRank(int n) Get rank values of alllayers related to a definite channel (or the contribution of all channels).
- regression::rank(int nbins=0, double fL=0., double fH=0.) Get rank value for a definite frequency band selecting the biggest values of the layers.

Using regression as LPE

More specifically, the code use as witness channel the target channel itself. This is the code implemented in the function:

```
// regression parameters
#define REGRESSION_FILTER_LENGTH 8
#define REGRESSION_MATRIX_FRACTION 0.95
#define REGRESSION_SOLVE_EIGEN_THR 0.
#define REGRESSION_SOLVE_EIGEN_NUM 10
#define REGRESSION_SOLVE_REGULATOR 'h'
#define REGRESSION_APPLY_THR 0.8
layers = rateANA/8;
WDM<double> WDMlpr(layers,layers,6,10); // set LPE filter WDM
pTF[i]->Forward(*hot[i],WDMlpr);
regression rr(*pTF[i],const_cast<char*>("target"),1.,cfg.fHigh);
rr.add(*hot[i],const_cast<char*>("target"));
rr.setFilter(REGRESSION_FILTER_LENGTH);
rr.setMatrix(NET.Edge,REGRESSION_MATRIX_FRACTION);
rr.solve(REGRESSION_SOLVE_EIGEN_THR,REGRESSION_SOLVE_EIGEN_NUM,REGRESSION_SOLVE_REGULATOR);
rr.apply(REGRESSION_APPLY_THR);
*hot[i] = rr.getClean();
```

In this case, to avoid the over-fitting between target and witness, the matrix R and vector C are modified, in particular:

- the values on the diagonal of R are put to zero
- the components L and L+(2L+1) of the vector C and (of 2(2L+1) components) are put to zero.
