We presented a method to reduce noise in signals using a higher-order, correlation-based approach. This paper examines the differences between hard and soft thresholds using the higher-order method, and the use of different wavelets in the denoising algorithm. Using a detection algorithm derived from third-order statistics, we determined if a wavelet coefficient was either mostly noise or mostly signal based on third-order statistics. We found that hard thresholding worked best when compared to soft thresholding but there is the possibility of improvement using soft thresholding.
