We consider in this paper Wigner type representations Wigt depending on a parameter t ∈ [0,1] as defined in [2]. We prove that the Cohen class can be characterized in terms of the convolution of such Wigt with a tempered distribution. We introduce furthermore a class of “quadratic representations” Spt based on the t-Wigner, as an extension of the two window Spectrogram (see [2]). We give basic properties of Spt as subclasses of the general Cohen class.

Key words and phrases: Time-Frequency representation, t-Wigner distribution, generalized Spectrogram.

Introducimos también la clase de “representaciones cuadraticas” Spt basado en el t-Wigner, como una extensión de dos ventanas espectrograma (ver [2]). Nosotros damos propiedades básicas de Spt como subclases de la clase Cohen.
