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)
— 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)
In this paper we address the problem of approximating functions on a semi-innite interval by truncated series of or-thonormal generalized Laguerre functions. The generalized Laguerre functions contain two parameters, namely a scale factor and an order of generalization. The rate of convergence of a generalized Laguerre series depends on the choice of these(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)
Recommended by James Kates In 2003 and 2004, the ISO/IEC MPEG standardization committee added two amendments to their MPEG-4 audio coding standard. These amendments concern parametric coding techniques and encompass Spectral Band Replication (SBR), Sinusoidal Coding (SSC), and Parametric Stereo (PS). In this paper, we will give an overview of the basic(More)
