Phase distribution value obtained by (11) is limited in the range of (-[pi], +[pi]) for the theory of the arctan function, so also through phase unwrapping, the accurate phase information can be obtained [4].

where the branches of the arctan function must be taken appropriately.
F(t, x) = 1 + e/4[pi] (5 + sin([k.sup.-1] [omega]t))[[[absolute value of x].sup.4] + ln(1 + [[absolute value of x].sup.4])] arctan [[absolute value of x].sup.4].
arctan x = x - [x.sup.3] / 3 + [x.sup.5] / 5 - [x.sup.7] / 7 ...
One would naturally attempt to solve this by integration by parts, differentiating the "arctan" form and integrating sin(x):
[f.sub.1](x) = x arctan x - 1/2 ln(1 + [x.sup.2]), x [member of] (0,1).
