A Conceptual Framework for Noise Reduction by Jacob Benesty, Jingdong Chen

By Jacob Benesty, Jingdong Chen

Though noise relief and speech enhancement difficulties were studied for no less than 5 a long time, advances in our figuring out and the advance of trustworthy algorithms are extra very important than ever, as they aid the layout of adapted options for essentially outlined purposes. during this paintings, the authors suggest a conceptual framework that may be utilized to the numerous various facets of noise aid, supplying a uniform method
to monaural and binaural noise relief difficulties, within the time area and within the frequency area, and concerning a unmarried or a number of microphones. additionally, the derivation of optimum filters is simplified, as are the functionality measures used for his or her evaluation.

Geometric Programming for Communication Systems (Foundations and Trends in Communications and Information The)

Lately Geometric Programming has been utilized to check a number of difficulties within the research and layout of verbal exchange structures from info conception and queuing thought to sign processing and community protocols. Geometric Programming for conversation structures starts off its accomplished remedy of the topic via delivering an in-depth instructional at the concept, algorithms, and modeling tools of Geometric Programming.

International Handbook of Network Industries : The Liberalization of Infrastructure

In contemporary a long time, all infrastructures have gone through major restructuring. This all over the world phenomenon is frequently labelled 'liberalization' and even though expectancies have been excessive with recognize to reduce costs, better potency and innovation, the predicted earnings haven't constantly been absolutely realised. This wide, cutting-edge guide offers a finished evaluate of a few of the stories of liberalization throughout varied sectors, areas and disciplines.

Teamwork in Multi-Agent Systems: A Formal Approach

Cooperation issues, in everyday life and in complicated functions. in any case, many initiatives desire greater than a unmarried agent to be successfully played. accordingly, teamwork ideas! groups are social teams of brokers devoted to the fulfilment of specific continual projects. In glossy multiagent environments, heterogeneous groups frequently include self sufficient software program brokers, a number of kinds of robots and humans.

In our simulations, these statistics are estimated as follows. 102) where αy ∈ (0, 1) and αv ∈ (0, 1) are the forgetting factors that control the influence of the previous data samples on the current correlation matrix estimate (the initial estimates of these two matrices are obtained from the first 100 signal frames with a short-time average). After the estimates of the Φy (k, n) and Φv (k, n) matrices are available at time frame n, the estimate of Φx (k, n) is computed as Φy (k, n) − Φv (k, n).

0 αy (= αv ) Fig. 2 Fullband performance of the MVDR filter for different values of the filter length, L, as a function of the forgetting factor αy (= αv ) in the white Gaussian noise. The window size is K = 64 (8 ms) with a 75% overlap and the fullband input SNR is 10 dB. optimized separately in an iterative way, which will be left to the reader’s investigation. 3 plots the performance of the MVDR filter in the NYSE noise. The conditions of this simulation are the same as those in the previous one except that, this time, we take the NYSE noise.

Comparing Figs. 2, we can see that varying the forgetting factor αv can help optimize the performance even when the noise is stationary. 0 αy (= αv ) Fig. 2 Fullband performance of the MVDR filter for different values of the filter length, L, as a function of the forgetting factor αy (= αv ) in the white Gaussian noise.
