Jointly optimal time segmentation, component selection and quantization for sinusoidal coding of audio and speech

We propose a rate-distortion optimal algorithm for sinusoidal modeling of audio and speech. The algorithm determines, for a pre-specified target bit-rate, the optimal (variable-length) time segmentation, the optimal distribution of sinusoidal components over the segments and the optimal (scalar) quantizers for quantizing the sinusoid parameters.
