Dear Dennis Shea,
I found a same mistake in two documents Kessler: U. Washington: Complex Demodulation and PMEL: Complex Demodulation. The first formula should be conected by a ‘plus’ sign not ’minus’ sign.
All the best,
Feng

I found that the phases of the sunspot in the figures 7.9 and 7.11 (see the attachment) in Bloomfield (2000)’s book (chapter 7 complex demodulation) were totally different with the ‘demod_cmplx_1_lg.png (see the attachment)’. Which is right? I believe the original sunspots in two examples are same and the different low-pass filter methods can not be used to explain this difference. How to explain the difference?
