Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In this paper, the linearly constrained minimum variance (LCMV) beamforming problem is formulated in the frequency domain based on the time-domain formulation of the cost function and the constraints. We then derive a frequency-domain constrained adaptive broadband beam-forming algorithm, which has a much lower computational complexity than the time-domain algorithm, although it suffers from a slower convergence speed, as shown by simulations. It is however an attractive option when the implementation of the time-domain algorithm is prohibitive due to large computational complexity. An alternative implementation of this constrained frequency-domain algorithm using the generalised sidelobe canceller (GSC) structure is also studied.
