This paper introduces a novel method named DEGL (Differential Evolution with global and local neighborhoods) regarding the design of two channel quadrature mirror filter with linear phase characteristics. To match the ideal system response characteristics, this improved variant of Differential Evolution technique is employed to optimize the values of the filter bank coefficients. The filter response is optimized in both pass band and stop band. The overall filter bank response consists of objective functions termed as reconstruction error, mean square error in pass band and mean square error in stop band. Effective designing can be performed if the objective function is properly minimized. The proposed algorithm can perform much better than the other existing design methods. Three different design examples are presented here for the illustrations of the benefits provided by the proposed algorithm.

    ABSTRACT: Artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm has been introduced recently for solving optimization problems. The ABC algorithm is based on intelligent foraging behavior of honeybee swarms and has many advantages over earlier swarm intelligence algorithms. In this work, a new method based on ABC algorithm for designing two-channel quadrature mirror filter (QMF) banks with linear phase is presented. To satisfy the perfect reconstruction condition, low-pass prototype filter coefficients are optimized to minimize an objective function. The objective function is formulated as a weighted sum of four terms, pass-band error, and stop-band residual energy of low-pass analysis filter, square error of the overall transfer function at the quadrature frequency and amplitude distortion of the QMF bank. The design results of the proposed method are compared with earlier reported results of particle swarm optimization (PSO), differential-evolution (DE) and conventional optimization algorithms.
