A procedure is presented whereby cross-coupled filters can be synthesized using a gradient-based optimization technique employing determinants. The cost of function formulated depends on a minimum set of characteristics that can completely describe the desired response. An analytical gradient is also derived for the error function enhancing the efficiency… CONTINUE READING
