Signal processing can be performed in time domain as well as intransform domain. Frequency domain is perhaps the most widely used domain for transform domain signal processing. In this paper we analyze sequency domain (SD) signal processing as an alternate to the conventional frequency domain signal processing. We perform signal processing in sequency domain using conjugate-symmetric sequency-ordered complex Hadamard transform and compare the results with those of discrete Fourier transform. We observe that in comparison with frequency spectrum, spectral energy of sequency spectrum is spread over the entire spectrum. We performed signal and image denoising in SD and found that our designed SD filters effectively denoise the signals.
