ABSTRACT The proportionate normalized least-mean-square (PNLMS) algorithm was developed in the context of network echo cancellation. It has been proven to be efficient when the echo path is sparse, which is not always the case in real-world echo cancellation. The improved PNLMS (IPNLMS) algorithm is less sensitive to the sparseness character of the echo path. This algorithm uses the l1 norm to exploit sparseness of the impulse response that needs to be identified. In this paper, we propose an IPNLMS algorithm based on the l0 norm, which represents a better measure of sparseness than the l1 norm. Simulation results prove that the proposed algorithm outperforms the original IPNLMS algorithm.

    ABSTRACT: Acoustic echo is one of the most important issues in communication. It creates disturbance in day-to-day communication. This echo can be cancelled using adaptive filters which are governed by adaptive algorithms. Right from the introduction of Least Mean Square (LMS) algorithm, over the years, a lot of research has been done in this field in order to develop new algorithms which can effectively drive the filter to give better performance. In this review paper, we have studied and discussed all the previous work done on these algorithms in relation to acoustic echo cancellation. This paper contains the basic review of all such existing algorithms as well as their merits and demerits. It covers the basic algorithms like LMS algorithm,Recursive Least Square algorithm as well as their modified versions like Normalized Least Mean Square algorithm, Fractional Least Mean Square algorithm, Filtered-x Least Mean Square algorithm etc. Finally, a tabular comparison has been given towards the end of the paper in order to conclude the discussion.

    ABSTRACT: This paper provides an analysis of the steady-state behavior of two biased adaptive algorithms recently introduced for listening room compensation, the biased filtered-x normalized least mean squares (Fx-BNLMS) and the biased filtered-x improved proportionate NLMS (Fx-BIPNLMS). We give theoretical results that show that the biased algorithms can outperform the unbiased ones in terms of the mean square error, especially in low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) scenarios. Moreover, for impulse responses exhibiting high sparse-ness, the improved proportionate algorithms achieve faster convergence than the standard NLMS. Thereby, the advantages of the Fx-BIPNLMS algorithm are justified theoretically in terms of the excess mean square error. Simulation results show that there is a relatively good match between theory and practice, especially for low μ values.
