Recommended by Henning Puder Recently, hearing aid systems where the left and right ear devices collaborate with one another have received much attention. Apart from supporting natural binaural hearing, such systems hold great potential for improving the intelligibility of speech in the presence of noise through beamforming algorithms. Binaural beamforming(More)
Parameter estimations of a fourth-order linear model are applied to data from subthreshold measurements of impulse responses of the transient visual system. These impulse responses were obtained experimentally by several subjects, at two different background luminance levels and for different field sizes. The parameter estimations show consistent results(More)
Kautz series allow orthogonal series expansion of finite-energy signals defined on a semi-infinite axis. The Kautz series consists of orthogonalized exponential functions or sequences. This series has as free parameters an ordered set of poles, each pole associated with an exponential function or sequence. For reasons of approximation and compact(More)
A method for real-time estimation of ARMA models from power spectral density functions is proposed. It is based upon the combination of LPC methods to estimate both numerator and denominator polynomial of the transfer function and an iterative scheme to attribute the appropriate parts of the power spectral density function to pole or zero modelling of the(More)
There is evidence that the transient channel of temporal human vision behaves as a linear filter for small excursions around a steady background level. The linear filter characteristics depend on the background level. From experimentally obtained impulse responses of the transient channel the linear filter can be modelled and parametrized. This has been(More)
— We consider orthonormal expansions where the basis functions are governed by some free parameters. If the basis functions adhere to a certain differential or difference equation, then an expression can be given for a specific enforced convergence rate criterion as well as an upper bound for the quadratic truncation error. This expression is a function of(More)
This paper considers general, pure linear prediction schemes, where the prediction of the input signal is based on IIR-filtered versions of the one-sample-delayed input signal. Properties of these schemes are discussed, in particular, the whitening property and the realization and stability of the synthesis filter. In contrast to warped linear prediction,(More)
