Engineering Applications is a hands-on treatment of the subject of optimization. A comprehensive set of problems and exercises makes the book suitable for use in one or two...
— In this paper, we present a new approach to the least-squares design of stable infinite impulse response (IIR) digital filters. The design is accomplished by using an iterative scheme in which the denominator polynomial obtained from the preceding iteration is treated as a part of the weighting function, and each iteration is carried out by solving a… (More)
— Digital filters capable of changing their frequency response characteristics are often referred to as variable digital filters (VDF's) and have been found useful in a number of digital signal processing applications. An important class of VDF's is the class of digital filters with variable fractional delay. This paper describes an enhanced weighted… (More)
In this paper, we investigate several efficient interpolation techniques for pilot symbol assisted channel estimation in OFDM. The interpolation methods studied include two dimensional (2-D) separable lowpass sinc interpolator with Kaiser window, 2-D separable Deslauriers-Dubuc (DD) interpolation and 2-D discrete Fourier transform (DFT) based lowpass… (More)
—In this paper, minimax design of infinite-impulse-response (IIR) filters with prescribed stability margin is formulated as a conic quadratic programming (CQP) problem. CQP is known as a class of well-structured convex programming problems for which efficient interior-point solvers are available. By considering factorized denominators, the proposed… (More)
—Since Lim's 1986 paper on the frequency-response-masking (FRM) technique for the design of finite-impulse response digital filters with very small transition widths, the analysis and design of FRM filters has been a subject of study. In this paper, a new optimization technique for the design of various FRM filters is proposed. Central to the new design… (More)
