I do not mention what is the sampling frequency but I know that it is low.

Should I use the article "the" or not in the following?

1

This can be highly error prone because of narrow bandlimited channel and low sampling frequencies of their signals.

or

2

This can be highly error prone because of the narrow bandlimited channel and the low sampling frequencies of their signals.

    If you are referring to a specific frequency use the .Are you sure the frequency ain't plural: ..because of low sampling frequencies in their time-frequency ? – Gil Jan 10 '14 at 23:57

    Is this a case where the sampling frequency is less than the Nyquist rate? – jlovegren Jan 11 '14 at 1:45
  • @jlovegren Good question! I will fix it there. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Jan 11 '14 at 2:38
  • @jlovegren I need to get greater Nyquist rate. I think this is done by increasing the bandlimited channel and thus the maximal sampling frequency such that we follow the Nyquist theorem. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Jan 11 '14 at 2:45

What do you mean?

(1) "This can be highly error-prone because there is some low sampling frequency in their time-frequency picture"
or
(2) "This can be highly error-prone because the sampling frequency in their time-frequency picture is low."?

In case (1), I'd consider omitting "the", in case (2) including it. But I'd prefer a rewrite, as above.

  • I meant originally (2) although the original sentences were mathematically wrong already. Fixed it. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Jan 11 '14 at 2:44
