In this paper, we consider smooth convex approximations to the maximum eigenvalue function. To make it applicable to a wide class of applications, the study is conducted on the composite function of the maximum eigenvalue function and a linear operator mapping m to n , the space of n-by-n symmetric matrices. The composite function in turn is the natural(More)
—Broadband microphone arrays has important applications such as hands-free mobile telephony, voice interface to personal computers and video conference equipment. This problem can be tackled in different ways. In this paper, a general broadband beamformer design problem is considered. The problem is posed as a Chebyshev minimax problem. Using the 1-norm(More)
It is well known that filters designed using the frequency response masking (FRM) technique have very sparse coefficients. The number of nontrivial coefficients of a digital filter designed using the FRM technique is only a very small fraction of that of a minimax optimum design meeting the same set of specifications. A digital filter designed using FRM(More)
