A landmark text in LMS filter technology from the fields leading authorities
In the field of electrical engineering and signal processing, few algorithms have proven as adaptable as the least-mean-square (LMS) algorithm. Devised by Bernard Widrow and M. Hoff, this simple yet effective algorithm now represents the cornerstone for the design of adaptive transversal (tapped-delay-line) filters.
Today, working efficiently with LMS adaptive filters not only involves understanding their fundamentals, it also means staying current with their many applications in practical systems. However, no single resource has presented an up-to-the-minute examination of these and all other essential aspects of LMS filtersuntil now.
Edited by Simon Haykin and Bernard Widrow, the original inventor of the technology, Least-Mean-Square Adaptive Filters offers the most definitive look at the LMS filter available anywhere. Here, readers will get a commanding perspective on the desirable properties that have made LMS filters the turnkey technology for adaptive signal processing. Just as importantly, Least-Mean-Square Adaptive Filters brings together the contributions of renowned experts whose insights reflect the state-of-the-art of the field today. In each chapter, the book presents the latest thinking on a wide range of vital, fast-emerging topics, including:
- Traveling-wave analysis of long LMS filters
- Energy conservation and the learning ability of LMS adaptive filters
- Robustness of LMS filters
- Dimension analysis for LMS filters
- Affine projection filters
- Proportionate adaptation
- Dynamic adaptation
- Error whitening Wiener filters
As the editors point out, there is no direct mathematical theory for the stability and steady-state performance of the LMS filter. But it is possible to chart its behavior in a stationary and nonstationary environment. Least-Mean-Square Adaptive Filters puts these defining characteristics into sharp focus, andmore than any other sourcebrings you up to speed on everything that the LMS filter has to offer.
