Course objectiveIt is aimed to give the basics of Adaptive Signal Processing from a mathematical perspective. Adaptive Signal Processing is a major field of Statistical Signal Processing which is applied in several areas such as Communications, Control, Radar Signal Processing and Biomedical Engineering. 
Learning outcomes
  1. To make clear of the situations in which Adaptive Signal Processing ought to be used
  2. To teach Wiener Filter, and how to use it to filter, predict and smooth a signal
  3. To discuss the advantages and disadvantages of several Adaptive Signal Processing techniques and their limitings
  4. To discuss the characterics of a time varying signal, and teach how to use Adaptive Signal Processing techniques in such cases
  5. To help the student to use the Adaptive Signal Processing techniques learned in the course to his/her thesis and applications in the real world.
Course ContentStatistical Processes and Models, Wiener Filters, Linear Prediction, Steepest Descent Algorithm, LMS (Least-Mean-Square), Normalised LMS, Frequency Domain and Subband Adaptive Filters, Method of Least Squares, Recursive Least Squares Adaptive Filters, Kalman Filters, Tracking of Time-varying Systems
