A new topology for combination of adaptive filters is proposed. Based on incremental strategies, the standard convexly combined parallel-independent filters are rearranged into a series-cooperative configuration without changing the computational complexity. Two new algorithms are derived from the new topology. Simulations in a stationary system(More)
In parallel combinations of adaptive filters, the component filters are usually run independently to be later on combined, leading to a stagnation phase before reaching a lower error. Conditional transfers of coefficients between the filters have been introduced in an attempt to address this issue. The present work proposes a more natural way of(More)
The incremental combination of adaptive filters (AFs), recently introduced in the literature, presents intrinsic features capable of improving the overall filtering performance. In this work, the incremental combination is extended to account for AFs with different adaptive rules; when Recursive Least-Squares (RLS) and the Least-Mean-Squares (LMS) filters(More)
This letter exploits geometric (Clifford) algebra (GA) theory to devise and introduce a new adaptive filtering strategy. From a least-squares cost function, the gradient is calculated following results from geometric calculus (GC), the extension of GA to handle differential and integral calculus. The novel GA least-mean-squares (GA-LMS) adaptive filter,(More)
In this paper we show that a Geometric Algebra-based least-mean-squares adaptive filter (GA-LMS) can be used to recover the 6-degree-of-freedom alignment of two point clouds related by a set of point correspondences. We present a series of techniques that endow the GA-LMS with outlier (false correspondence) resilience to outperform standard least squares(More)
