Sparse Adaptive Filters for Echo Cancellation (Synthesis by Jacob Benesty, Constantin Paleologu, Silviu Ciochina, B.H.

By Jacob Benesty, Constantin Paleologu, Silviu Ciochina, B.H. Juang

Adaptive filters with plenty of coefficients are typically interested by either community and acoustic echo cancellation. accordingly, it is very important increase the convergence price and monitoring of the normal algorithms used for those purposes. this is completed via exploiting the sparseness personality of the echo paths. id of sparse impulse responses used to be addressed customarily within the final decade with the advance of the so-called ``proportionate''-type algorithms. The aim of this booklet is to give crucial sparse adaptive filters built for echo cancellation. along with a finished evaluate of the fundamental proportionate-type algorithms, we additionally current many of the most up-to-date advancements within the box and suggest a few new ideas for extra functionality development, e.g., variable step-size types and novel proportionate-type affine projection algorithms. An experimental learn is additionally supplied on the way to examine many sparse adaptive filters in numerous echo cancellation situations. desk of Contents: advent / Sparseness Measures / functionality Measures / Wiener and simple Adaptive Filters / easy Proportionate-Type NLMS Adaptive Filters / The Exponentiated Gradient Algorithms / The Mu-Law PNLMS and different PNLMS-Type Algorithms / Variable Step-Size PNLMS Algorithms / Proportionate Affine Projection Algorithms / Experimental research
