During the last decade, CDquality digital audio has essentially replaced analog audio. Emerging digital audio applications for network, wireless, and multimedia computing systems face a series of constraints such as reduced channel bandwidth, limited storage capacity, and low cost. These new applications have created a demand for highquality digital audio delivery at low bit rates. In response to this need, considerable research has been devoted to the development of algorithms for perceptually transparent coding of highfidelity (CDquality) digital audio. As a result, many algorithms have been proposed, and several have now become international and/or commercial product standards. This paper reviews algorithms for perceptually transparent coding of CDquality digital audio, including both research and standardization activities. The paper is organized as follows. First, psychoacoustic principles are described with the MPEG psychoacoustic signal analysis model 1 discussed in some detail. Next, filter bank design issues and algorithms are addressed, with a particular emphasis placed on the Modified Discrete Cosine Transform (MDCT), a perfect reconstruction (PR) cosinemodulated filter bank that has become of central importance in perceptual audio coding. Then, we review methodologies that achieve perceptually transparent coding of FM and CDquality audio signals, including algorithms that manipulate transform components, subband signal decompositions, sinusoidal signal components, and linear prediction (LP) parameters, as well as hybrid algorithms that make use of more than one signal model. These discussions concentrate on architectures and applications of

In this paper we study the nonsubsampled contourlet transform. We address the corresponding filter design problem using the McClellan transformation. We show how zeroes can be imposed in the filters so that the iterated structure produces regular basis functions. The proposed design framework yields filters that can be implemented efficiently through a lifting factorization. We apply the constructed transform in image noise removal where the results obtained are comparable to the stateofthe art, being superior in some cases.

Abstract—We provide a frametheoretic analysis of oversampled finite impulse response (FIR) and infinite impulse response (IIR) uniform filter banks (FB’s). Our analysis is based on a new relationship between the FB’s polyphase matrices and the frame operator corresponding to an FB. For a given oversampled analysis FB, we present a parameterization of all synthesis FB’s providing perfect reconstruction. We find necessary and sufficient conditions for an oversampled FB to provide a frame expansion. A new frametheoretic procedure for the design of paraunitary FB’s from given nonparaunitary FB’s is formulated. We show that the frame bounds of an FB can be obtained by an eigenanalysis of the polyphase matrices. The relevance of the frame bounds as a characterization of important numerical properties of an FB is assessed by means of a stochastic sensitivity analysis. We consider special cases in which the calculation of the frame bounds and synthesis filters is simplified. Finally, simulation results are presented. Index Terms — Filter banks, frames, oversampling, polyphase representation.

Redundancy is a common tool in our daily lives. Before we leave the house, we double and triplecheck that we turned off gas and lights, took our keys, and have money (at least those worrywarts among us do). When an important date is coming up, we drive our loved ones crazy by confirming “just once more” they are on top of it. Of course, the reason we are doing that is to avoid a disaster by missing or forgetting something, not to drive our loved ones crazy. The same idea of removing doubt is present in signal representations. Given a signal, we represent it in another system, typically a basis, where its characteristics are more readily apparent in the transform coefficients. However, these representations are typically nonredundant, and thus corruption or loss of transform coefficients can be serious. In comes redundancy; we build a safety net into our representation so that we can avoid those disasters. The redundant counterpart of a basis is called a frame [no one seems to know why they are called frames, perhaps because of the bounds in (25)?]. It is generally acknowledged (at least in the signal processing and harmonic analysis communities) that frames were born in 1952 in the paper by Duffin and Schaeffer [32]. Despite being over half a century old, frames gained popularity only in the last decade, due mostly to the work of the three wavelet pioneers—Daubechies, Grossman, and Meyer [29]. Framelike ideas, that is, building redundancy into a signal expansion, can be found in pyramid

We study frames for robust transmission over the Internet. In our previous work, we used quantized finitedimensional frames to achieve resilience to packet losses; here, we allow the input to be a sequence in ` 2 (Z) and focus on a filterbank implementation of the system. We present results in parallel, R N or C N versus ` 2 (Z), and show that uniform tight frames, as well as newly introduced strongly uniform tight frames, provide the best performance.

In 1983, Burt and Adelson introduced the Laplacian pyramid (LP) as a multiresolution representation for images. We study the LP using the frame theory, and this reveals that the usual reconstruction is suboptimal. We show that the LP with orthogonal filters is a tight frame, and thus, the optimal linear reconstruction using the dual frame operator has a simple structure that is symmetric with the forward transform. In more general cases, we propose an efficient filterbank (FB) for the reconstruction of the LP using projection that leads to a proved improvement over the usual method in the presence of noise. Setting up the LP as an oversampled FB, we offer a complete parameterization of all synthesis FBs that provide perfect reconstruction for the LP. Finally, we consider the situation where the LP scheme is iterated and derive the continuous domain frames associated with the LP.

Abstract — This paper presents conventional and emerging applications of orthogonal synthesis/analysis transform configurations (transmultiplexer) in communications. It emphasizes that orthogonality is the underlying concept in the design of many communication systems. It is shown that orthogonal filter banks (subband transforms) with proper time–frequency features can play a more important role in the design of new systems. The general concepts of filter bank theory are tied together with the applicationspecific requirements of several different communication systems. Therefore, this paper is an attempt to increase the visibility of emerging communication applications of orthogonal filter banks and to generate more research activity in the signal processing community on these topics.

Tight frames and rankone quantum measurements are shown to be intimately related. In fact, the family of normalized tight frames for the space in which a quantum mechanical system lies is precisely the family of rankone generalized quantum measurements (POVMs) on that space. Using this relationship, frametheoretical analogues of various quantummechanical concepts and results are developed. The analogue of a leastsquares quantum measurement is a tight frame that is closest in a leastsquares sense to a given set of vectors. The leastsquares tight frame is found for both the case in which the scaling of the frame is specified (constrained leastsquares frame (CLSF)) and the case in which the scaling is free (unconstrained leastsquares frame (ULSF)). The wellknown canonical frame is shown to be proportional to the ULSF and to coincide with the CLSF with a certain scaling. Finally, the canonical frame vectors corresponding to a geometrically uniform vector set are shown to be geometrically uniform and to have the same symmetries as the original vector set.
