Open Access research that shapes economic thinking...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Fraser of Allander Institute (FAI), a leading independent economic research unit focused on the Scottish economy and based within the Department of Economics. The FAI focuses on research exploring economics and its role within sustainable growth policy, fiscal analysis, energy and climate change, labour market trends, inclusive growth and wellbeing.

The open content by FAI made available by Strathprints also includes an archive of over 40 years of papers and commentaries published in the Fraser of Allander Economic Commentary, formerly known as the Quarterly Economic Commentary. Founded in 1975, "the Commentary" is the leading publication on the Scottish economy and offers authoritative and independent analysis of the key issues of the day.

Abstract

In this paper, we derive a polyphase analysis to determine the optimum filters in a subband adaptive filter (SAF) system. The structure of this optimum solution deviates from the standard SAF approach and presents its best possible solution only as an approximation. Besides this new insight into SAF error sources, the discussed analysis allows to calculate the optimum subband responses and the standard SAF approximation. Examples demonstrating the validity of our analysis and its use for determining SAF errors are presented.
