In this paper we study the impact of polynomial or broadband subspace decompositions on any subsequent processing, which here uses the example of a broadband angle of arrival estimation technique using a recently proposed polynomial MUSIC (P-MUSIC) algorithm. The subspace decompositions are performed by iterative polynomial EVDs, which differ in their approximations to diagonalise and spectrally majorise s apce-time covariance matrix.We here show that a better diagonalisation has a significant impact on the accuracy of defining broadband signal and noise subspaces, demonstrated by a much higher accuracy of the P-MUSIC spectrum.
