    This paper deals with the pole zero identification of a linear system from a measured input-output record. One objective is to show that the pencil-of-function method minimizes a weighted version of the Kalman equation error. It follows that the pencil-of-function method is capable of yielding robust estimates for poles located in a given region of the complex s plane. The second objective of this... View full abstract»

    A new method for removing impulse noises from images is proposed. The filtering scheme is based on replacing the central pixel value by the generalized mean value of all pixels inside a sliding window. The concepts of thresholding and complementation which are shown to improve the performance of the generalized mean filter are introduced. The threshold is derived using a statistical theory. The ac... View full abstract»

    A new approach to implement computationally efficient finite impulse response (FIR) digital filters is presented. The filter structure is a cascade of two sections. The first section generates a sparse set of impulse response samples and the other section generates the remaining samples by using interpolation. The method can be used to implement most practical FIR filters with significant savings ... View full abstract»

  • On the approximation of the optimum detector by the energy detector in detection of colored Gaussian signals in noise

    We demonstrate that the optimum detector of colored Gaussian signals in white Gaussian noise can be approximated, without serious degradation in detection performance, by the so-called energy detector which is optimum only when the signal is also white. Contrary to intuition, such an approximation is possible when the signal which is colored dominates the noise which is white. The demonstration is... View full abstract»

    Each of the methods for computing digital convolution has its own advantages and disadvantages. Techniques are evolved by combining advantages of various methods, leading to reduction in computational effort, and relaxation of limitations in some cases. Although discussion is primarily based on convolution of real data, similar techniques could be employed for convolution of complex sequences. View full abstract»

    The theory of optimal image restoration is well established for monochrome imagery. However, a variety of sensors acquire multi-spectral or polychrome imagery. The restoration of multispectral imagery by optimal (Wiener) methods is developed in this paper. It is shown that optimal restoration must take place in the Karhunen-Loeve domain. It is further shown that high quality approximate multispect... View full abstract»

  • New amplitude change functions for improving the filter response

    A method is suggested for improving the response of a symmetric nonrecursive digital filter using several copies of that filter. This is based on shifting and/or scaling the amplitude change function (ACF). A new generalized ACF has been derived which has similar characteristics as that of the Kaiser-Hamming--Chebyshev ACF, but does not require additional correction filters for its implementation....

    A new technique for high quality syntheses of musical voices (instruments) is presented, it is a harmonic synthesis method based on weighted window function "pulse" sequences. The technique eliminates the problem of aliasing in its discrete-time implementation. High fidelity emulations of "natural" instruments are achieved at a greatly reduced cost in multiplies per sample time. In addition, param... View full abstract»

    The extension to the 2-D case of the Bauer formulation of the spectral factorization is given. The relation to the 2-D generalization of the Levinson algorithm by Marzetta leads to a proof of the convergence of the method. The problems of the practical implementation are discussed.

  • NAR AGC adaptive detection of signals deformed by random linear filtering using generalized matched and antimatched filters

    The adaptive detection of signals deformed by random linear filtering in noise with fluctuating power is considered. An automatic gain control (AGC) receiver comprising both generalized matched and antimatched filters is proposed. The antimatched filter is inserted in the AGC channel in order to minimize the average power signal-to-noise ratio, and thus renders the AGC approximately insensitive (t... View full abstract»

    Alternatives to Munson and Liu's structures [1] are given, which also realize a second-order section having both poles and zeros, with low sensitivity and roundoff noise. Instead of realizing zeros separately from poles, zeros are combined with poles in poles preceding zeros form. An illustration is worked out for comparison, and it is shown that such a realization could have better signal-to-nois... View full abstract»

    It often happens that a signal processing application will involve a matrix operator that is invariant under specific preunitary and postunitary matrix multiplications. This invariance feature may be exploited to establish algebraic invariance properties possessed by the singular vectors associated with that matrice's SVD representation. This characterization can be of considerable theoretical as ... View full abstract»

    Alignment of discrete-time signals using time shifts obtained through cross correlation techniques in the time domain without interpolation can only be done to within an integer multiple of the sampling period. In this paper, we discuss an alignment procedure for discrete-time signals which overcomes this difficulty by determining the time shifts through a parameter optimization problem in the dis...

    The paper presents filtering methods for interfacing time-discrete systems with different sampling frequencies. The methods are applicable for sampling rate conversion between any two sampling frequencies; the conversion ratio may even be irrational or slowly time varying. Interpolation by irrational factors requires digital filters with nonperiodically varying coefficients. This is dealt with in ... View full abstract»

    A frequency estimator for sinusoids in white noise is described. Convergence results are obtained for the single sinusoid case and a simulation described for the multiple sinusoid case. The estimator is shown to be capable of providing accurate frequency estimates at lower SNR's than currently existing techniques. Furthermore, the simplicity of the algorithm lends itself to a simple and efficient ... View full abstract»

    Memory and computation requirements imply fundamental limitations on the quality that can be achieved in vector quantization systems used for speech waveform coding and linear predictive voice coding (LPC). One approach to reducing storage and computation requirements is to organize the set of reproduction vectors as the Cartesian product of a vector codebook describing the shape of each reproduct...

    Adaptive predictive coding with dynamic bit allocation is presented for speech encoding at low to medium bit rates (6.4 kbits/s to 16 kbits/s). In this system, a split-band predictive coding scheme and a bit allocation scheme are employed in order to remove the redundancies due to a periodic concentration of the prediction residual energy, as well as the nonuniform nature of the speech spectrum.

    In this paper we discuss the problem of signal reconstruction from spectral magnitude or phase using group delay functions. We define two separate group delay functions for a signal, one is derived from the magnitude and the other from the phase of the Fourier transform of the signal. The group delay functions offer insight into the problem of signal reconstruction and suggest methods for reconstr... View full abstract»

    Results pertaining to the short and long term covariance identification of AR models driven by periodic sequences of possibly unknown phase are presented. The work is motivated by problems relating to LPC analysis of voiced speech, but results are formulated in general. Short term and asymptotic effects of such inputs on the invertibility of the covariance matrix are considered. Short term criteri... View full abstract»

    Block Truncation Coding is a recently developed approach to image compression whose design is specified by the appropriate moment preserving quantizer. In this paper we show how the basic Block Truncation Coding algorithm can be generalized to include a family of moment preserving quantizers with the potential for improved performance. We then illustrate by way of example that such improvement is ... View full abstract»
