Abstract
Threshold for a pulsed tone was measured as a function of its distance in frequency from the edge of a broad band of noise with very sharp skirts. Tone frequency was held constant at 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 4.0, or 8.0 kHz while the position of the noise edge was varied about the frequency of the tone. The spectrum level of the noise was about 40 dB. A mathematical expression was found to describe the filter, and subsequently, the expression was used to predict the results reported by several other investigators.
