Postgraduate Course: Adaptive Signal Processing (PGEE11019)

Course Outline
SchoolSchool of Engineering CollegeCollege of Science and Engineering
Credit level (Normal year taken)SCQF Level 11 (Postgraduate) AvailabilityAvailable to all students
SCQF Credits10 ECTS Credits5
SummaryThis course deals with adaptive filters and related linear estimation techniques such as the Wiener finite impulse response filter and Kalman filters. The concepts of training and convergence are introduced and the trade-off between performance and complexity is considered. The application of these techniques to problems in equalization, coding, spectral analysis and detection is examined.
Course description The following topics are covered:
spectral factorization , inverse filters & filter noise calculations;
the principle of statistical orthogonality and the Wiener finite impulse response (FIR) filter;
recursive least squares and least mean squares adaptive filter algorithms and their application;
the scalar Kalman filter, the vector Kalman Filter and application to tracking systems;
autoregressive spectral analysis and linear predictive coding of speech;
spatially variant apodization and amplitude and phase spectral analysis .
