    An unstated axiom in the abovementioned correspondence by M.H. El-Ayadi (see ibid., vol.ASSP-35, p.1347-50, Sept.1987) on quadratic noise estimators requires the kernel matrix to be nonnegative definite. The commenter shows that this assumption is not required for the noise-alone-reference (NAR) estimator; it limits the performance of the generalized NAR estimator in the sense of a minimum-varianc...

    In the abovementioned correspondence P. Yip and K.R. Rao (see ibid., vol.ASSP-35, p.404-6, Mar.1987) presented a shift property for even discrete cosine transforms (EDCT) and sine transforms (EDST). The commenter points out that the odd counterparts (ODCT and ODST) also exist in the family. He extends Yip and Rao's results to these odd triangular transforms and makes several corrections to their w... View full abstract»

    The conventional Huffman table, which stores a set of code words with different lengths, is difficult to construct. An easily constructed table that includes a code-length array and an encoding mapping array can accompany an encoding procedure to replace the conventional Huffman table. The code-length array records the number of code words of the same length, and the index of this array represents... View full abstract»

    A technique is presented for determining the transfer function of an nth-order pole-zero system when its frequency response is specified at 2n+1 distinct frequencies. It involves solving only two sets of linear simultaneous equations. The author makes clear its analogy to the famous Prony method. Although known since 1934, the technique appears to be new to the area of signal pro... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (5)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (276 KB)

    An approach is suggested to wideband adaptive beamforming for correlated signal and interference. Unlike other approaches, such as spatial smoothing, the new approach solves the signal cancellation problem by employing the idea of frequency-domain smoothing. Advantages of frequency-domain smoothing over spatial smoothing are identified. Preliminary performance studies of a simple frequency-domain ... View full abstract»

    The technique fits a sinusoidal model to additive vocal speech segments so that the least-mean-squared error between the model and the summed waveforms is obtained. Enhancement is achieved by synthesizing a waveform from the sine waves attributed to the desired speaker. Least-squares estimation is applied to obtain sine-wave amplitudes and phases of both talkers, based on either a priori sine-wave... View full abstract»

    In some signal processing applications, the input data are real. In this case, the Bruun algorithm for computation of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) is attractive. The author offers a pipeline and a recirculated shuffle network implementation of the Bruun algorithm. The implementation of the parallel pipeline and recirculated FFT structures is based on the modified perfect shuffle network View full abstract»

    A theoretical analysis is presented of the stochastic gradient adaptive lattice filter used as a linear, one-step predictor, when the effects of finite-precision arithmetic are taken into account. Only the fixed-point implementation is considered. Both the unnormalized and normalized adaptation algorithms are analyzed.

    The minimum-mean-squared-error encoding of a noisy source is considered within the context of alphabet-constrained data compression. Just as in the block-coding formulation, the optimum source coder consists of an optimum estimator followed by optimum source coding of the resulting estimates. However, unlike the block approach, the alphabet-constrained viewpoint admits estimators based on the past... View full abstract»

    A method for enhancing the bearing resolution obtained by conventional beamforming is described. Using the beamformer power outputs, the beam response functions, and optionally a background-noise spatial power spectral density (PSD) as input, the method gives a point-mass estimate of the signal PSD as function of bearing. The estimate is defined from the solution of a semiinfinite linear optimizat... View full abstract»

    Recently, H. Kimura and Y. Honoki (see ibid., vol.ASSP-35, p.1024-36, July 1987) proposed a hybrid approach to high-resolution 2-D spectral estimation. However, they did not do a performance analysis of the final spectrum estimate and only conjectured that the final estimate coincides with the true maximum entropy estimate for the case of cyclic and skew-cyclic Toeplitz R(l).

    A description is given of SPHINX, a system that demonstrates the feasibility of accurate, large-vocabulary, speaker-independent, continuous speech recognition. SPHINX is based on discrete hidden Markov models (HMMs) with LPC- (linear-predictive-coding) derived parameters. To provide speaker independence, knowledge was added to these HMMs in several ways: multiple codebooks of fixed-width parameter... View full abstract»

    Median filters have been proposed for the analysis of speech data and in image processing to enhance the data by smoothing the signal and removing noise. Many designs for median filters have been suggested in the literature. The author reviews these designs (most originally given as software filters) and compare them on the basis of suitability for implementation in VLSI. Each design is analyzed i... View full abstract»

    G.G.L. Meyer and H.L. Weinert (see ibid., vol.ASSP-34, p.973-8, Aug. 1986) use the majority rule for fault-tolerant detection. The authors extend this and examine a redundant system with a general voting rule. They present an optimal design for each individual processor and the optimal selection of the k-out-of-M voting rule. They give an analytic solution to the optimal voting p... View full abstract»

    Consideration is given to the phase error estimation and correction problem in tomographic acoustic microscopy. In a recent paper, Z.C. Lin and G. Wade (ibid., vol.ASSP-35, p.1037-45, July 1987) modeled the phase error as a constant and proposed a single-sideband technique for its correction. The present authors point out that the phase error is not a constant, and that the single-sideband techniq... View full abstract»

    The authors develop an iterative, adaptive, space-variant restoration incorporating both regularization and artifact-suppression constraints. The algorithm is formulated using the method of projections onto convex sets (POCS). They introduce a closed-convex regularization constraint set called the partial Wiener solution set. Projection onto this set forces the solution to be equal to the Wiener s... View full abstract»

    A multiple method used in speech coding is applied to the seismic deconvolution problem. The advantage of this method is that the source wavelet and reflectivity series representing the layered Earth structure are simultaneously estimated. Results of this investigation show that the method shows promise for all-pole models of the input wavelet. An application of the method to actual seismic data i... View full abstract»

    The deconvolution problem for a cycle convolution equation with the input (or the deconvolution kernel) spectrum containing zeros is discussed. It is shown that through factorization of the kernel the impulse can be obtained by combined use of the two conventional methods: the Z-transform division method and DFT (discrete Fourier transform) division method, if the length of the impulse re...
