Lecture Notes for Adaptive Filters

Introduction to Adaptive Filtering; Wiener filter and Steepest Descent [ pdf]
Least Mean Square Algorithm [ pdf]
Recursive Least Squares [ pdf]
Kalman Filter [ pdf]
Hidden Markov Model [ pdf]

Examples paper: part 1 [ pdf], part 2 [ pdf]
(Examples class is second half of lecture 7 and lecture 8)
Solutions: part 1 [ pdf], part 2 [ pdf]

Matlab demo files

Matlab m-file for Lecture 2: Steepest Descent Example Lec2_SDexample.m
Matlab m-file for Lecture 3: Noise Cancellation problem [ noiseCancel.m], Learning AR signal parameters [ misAdjustment.m], NLMS [ nlms.m]
For noise cancellation, you should plot the various signals. Also consider the effect of changing the filter order, the frequency of both the noises, their lags etc.
Matlab m-file for Lecture 4: Learning AR signal parameters using the RLS [ rlsExample.m] algorithm
The Matlab file for Examples Sheet 1, Q4 [ ex1Question4.m]
The Matlab file implementing the scalar KF
The Matlab file for Dishonest Casino

Lecture Notes for Spectrum Estimation

Power Spectrum Estimation [ pdf]
Periodogram properties [ pdf]
Improving the Periodogram [ pdf]
Parametric methods [ pdf]
Fitting the MA model [ pdf]
Maximum likelihood for ARMA model estimation [ pdf]

Examples paper with solutions [ pdf]
