Adaptive filtering techniques in subbands have been recently developed for a number of applications including acoustic echo cancellation and wideband active noise control. In such applications, hundreds of taps are required resulting in high computational complexity and low convergence rate when using LMS based algorithms. For fullband systems, new(More)
Studies on mesohabitat scale have been used to shed light on the ecology and distribution of chironomid larvae in small streams. Thus, the objective of the present study was to examine the diversity and distribution of the Chironomidae assemblage on the mesohabitat scale in three streams located in different preserved areas of southeastern Brazil. In each(More)
Subband adaptive filtering techniques have been recently developed for a number of applications, such as acoustic echo cancellation and wideband active noise control. Such applications require adaptive filters with hundreds of taps, resulting in high computational complexity and low convergence rate for LMS based algorithms. For fullband systems , a variety(More)
— Noise robustness of automatic speaker verification systems is crucial in real life applications. A study on the performance of several spectral subtraction-based speech enhancement techniques shows the poor performance of these algorithms when used as a preprocessing stage of the speaker verification system in the presence of colored noise. In this paper,(More)
This study describes the structure of the Chironomidae community associated with bryophytes in a first-order stream located in a biological reserve of the Atlantic Forest, during two seasons. Samples of bryophytes adhered to rocks along a 100-m stretch of the stream were removed with a metal blade, and 200-mL pots were filled with the samples. The numerical(More)
