Wow! This definitely contributed to my evening.
If you could indulge, I would like some clarification on this matter of
binning and distortion, particularly wrt time series (perhaps related to
long-memory processes?). I had thought binning was standard practice in
spectral analysis and ANPOW.
Bert is correct. Binning is seldom needed and usually distorts. It is the
statistical equivalent of a former governor from Alaska.
