CET732 Linear Prediction and Optimal Linear Filters

Course Provider

School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE)



Academic Unit



The objective of this module is to introduce linear prediction, one of the fundamental tools for processing and analyzing real-world signals, such as  audio, speech and biomedical signals. The objective is also to introduce  optimal linear filters that aim at achieving the best linear prediction and  estimation using statistical theory and are useful in wide applications.

This course is part of:

- Graduate Certificate in Signal and Media Processing
- FlexiMasters in Signal and Media Processing

At the end of the course, learners would be able to apply fundamental principles  and techniques of the course to analyze and design various problems encountered in both academic research and industry R&D practice.

Fundamentals of statistical signal processing. Innovations representation of stationary random process. Forward and backward linear prediction. Solution  of the normal equations. Properties of linear prediction-error filters.  Autoregressive (AR) lattice filters. Wiener filters. Adaptive filters. Applications.

For engineers who wish to upgrade their technical knowledge and skills  in the area of digital signal processing, which can be  used in the Infocomm industry to aid in prediction and in filtering any kind of  signal.
