    This article discusses the creation of adaptive algorithms for channel shortening, with particular attention to blind algorithms. The context is multicarrier modulation, through other applications of channel shortening are discussed. It is shown that the algorithms used for adaptive equalization are not easily applied to adaptive channel shortening. In a return to first principles, a property rest... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (94 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper discusses the isomorphism between the analog and digital signal domains and its implications in terms of technology transfer. The paper describes how the discovery of the correspondence between these domains has reshaped the way people think about the analog and digital worlds and formed the basis of some of the author's later work in DSP audio and music synthesis.

    Genomic signal processing (GSP) concerns the processing of genomic signals. It may be defined as the analysis, processing, and use of genomic signals to gain biological knowledge and the translation of that knowledge into systems-based applications. In this article, the authors discuss the key research issues for GSP. It is important to recognize that "genomic signal processing" is not a name for ... View full abstract»

  • Generating rectangular coordinates in polar coordinate order

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):178 - 180

    This paper proposes a means by which 2D data represented using the rectangular coordinate system can be converted to its equivalent in the polar coordinate system. Taking note that the order in which data becomes available with a polar coordinate measuring device is most unnatural from the point of view of a rectangular coordinate system, this paper presents a simple yet elegant algorithm that gen...

    The paper discusses the theory behind the dual-tree transform, shows how complex wavelets with good properties can be designed, and illustrates a range of applications in signal and image processing. The authors use the complex number symbol C in CWT to avoid confusion with the often-used acronym CWT for the (different) continuous wavelet transform. The four fundamentals, intertwined shortcomings ... View full abstract»

    This article focuses on FEC for scalable image coders. For various channel models, we survey recent progress made in system design and discuss efficient source-channel bit allocation techniques, with emphasis on unequal error protection. This article considered JSCC (joint source-channel coding) at the application layer only. Recent research has studied cross-layer optimization where JSCC is appli... View full abstract»
