We present a method for computing the theoretically exact estimate of the instantaneous frequency of a signal from local values of its short time Fourier transform under the assumption that the complex logarithm of the signal is a polynomial in time. We apply the method to the problem of estimating and separating non-stationary components of a multi-component signal. Signal estimation and separation is based on a linear TF model in which the value of the signal at each time is distributed in frequency. This is a significant departure from the conventional nonlinear model in which signal energy is distributed in time and frequency. We further demonstrate by a simple example that IF estimated by the higher order method is significantly better than previously used first order methods.
