ABSTRACT Due to the computational complexity of the Volterra filter, there are limitations on the implementation in practice. In this paper, a novel adaptive joint process filter using pipelined feedforward second-order Volterra architecture (JPPSOV) to reduce the computational burdens of the Volterra filter is proposed. The proposed architecture consists of two subsections: nonlinear subsection performing a nonlinear mapping from the input space to an intermediate space by the feedforward second-order Volterra (SOV), and a linear combiner performing a linear mapping from the intermediate space to the output space. The corresponding adaptive algorithms are deduced for the nonlinear and linear combiner subsections, respectively. Moreover, the analysis of theory shows that these adaptive algorithms based on the pipelined architecture are stable and convergence under a certain condition. To evaluate the performance of the JPPSOV, a series of simulation experiments are presented including nonlinear system identification and predicting of speech signals. Compared with the conventional SOV filter, adaptive JPPSOV filter exhibits a litter better convergence performance with less computational burden in terms of convergence speed and steady-state error.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, a recurrent neural network (RNN) based robust tracking controller is designed for a class of multiple-input-multiple-output discrete time nonlinear systems. The RNN is used in the closed-loop system to estimate online unknown nonlinear system function. A multivariable robust adaptive gradient-descent training algorithm is developed to train RNN. The weight convergence and system stability are proven in the sense of Lyapunov function. Simulation results are presented for a two-link robot tracking control problem.

    ABSTRACT: Electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings often experience interference by different kinds of noise, including white, muscle, and baseline, severely limiting its utility. The recent research has demonstrated that discrete-time Volterra models can be successfully applied to reduce the broadband and narrowband noise. Their usefulness is mainly because of their ability to approximate to an arbitrary precision any fading memory system and their property of linearity with respect to parameters, the kernels coefficients. The main drawback of these models is their parametric complexity implying the need to estimate a huge number of parameters. Numerical results show that the developed algorithm achieves performance improvement over the standard filtered algorithm. This paper presents a Volterra filter (VF) algorithm based on a multichannel structure for noise reduction. Several methods have been developed, but the VF appears to be the most effective for reducing muscle and baseline noise, especially when the contamination is greater in amplitude than the brain signal. The present study introduces a new method of reducing noise in EEG signals in one step with low EEG distortion and high noise reduction. Applications with different real and synthetic signals are discussed, showing the validity of the proposed method.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we describe a technique to smooth the Q-switched pulse output from the large core fibre by effectively reducing the degree of coherence of the laser beam before launch and thus reducing contrast in the speckle. Whilst developed for PIV, the technique is capable of general applicability.
