FormuIas for the Product FiIter
HaIfband condition:
P(e ee e) + P(e ee e + t tt t) = 2
AIso want P(e ee e) to be Iowpass
and p[n] to be symmetric.
Daubechies' Approach
Design a poIynomiaI, P(y), of degree 2p - 1, such that
P(0) = 2
P

(0) = 0; = 1, 2, ., p - 1

Can achieve required fIatness at y = 1 by incIuding a
term of the form (1 - y)

i.e.
P(y) = 2(1 - y)

How to choose B

Let B

(y) be the binomiaI series expansion for
(1 - y)
-p
, truncated after p terms:
B

SpectraI Factorization
RecaII the haIfband condition for orthogonaI fiIters:
z domain:
H
0
(z) H
0
(z
-1
) + H
0
(-z) H
0
(-z

) = 2
Frequency domain:
| || |H
0
(e ee e) | || |
2
+ | || |H
0
(e ee e + t tt t) | || |
2
= 2
The product fiIter for the orthogonaI case is
P(z) = H
0
(z) H
0
(z
-1
)
P(e ee e) = | || |H
0
(e ee e)| || |

¬ ¬¬ ¬ P(e ee e) > >> > 0
p[n] = h

[n] - -- - h

[-n] ¬ ¬¬ ¬ p[n] = p[-n]
The spectraI factorization probIem is the probIem
of finding H

(z) once P(z) is known.

Consider the distribution of the zeros (roots) of P(z).
Symmetry of p[n] ¬ ¬¬ ¬ P(z) = P(z

If z
0
is a root then so is z

.
If p[n] are reaI, then the roots appear in compIex,
conjugate pairs.

CompIex zeros ReaI zeros
If the zero z
0
is grouped into the spectraI factor H

(z),
then the zero 1/z

must be grouped into H

Daubechies' choice: Choose H
0
(z) such that
(i) aII its zeros are inside or on the unit circIe.
(ii) it is causaI.
i.e. H
0
(z) is a minimum phase fiIter.

PracticaI AIgorithms:
1. Direct Method: compute the roots of P(z)
numericaIIy.
2. CepstraI Method:
First factor out the zeros which Iie on the unit
circIe
P(z) = [(1 + z
-1
)(1 + z)]
p
Q(z)
Now we need to factor Q(z) into R(z) R(z
-1
) such that
i. R(z) has aII its zeros inside the unit circIe.
ii. R(z) is causaI.
7
13
Then use Iogarithms to change muItipIication into
Q(z) = R(z) · R(z
-1
)
In Q(z) = In R(z) + In R(z
-1
)

R(z) has aII its zeros and aII its poIes inside the unit
circIe, so R(z) has aII its singuIarities inside the unit
circIe. (In0 = - · ·· · , In · ·· · = · ·· · .)
^
R(z) R(z) = In R(z)

AII singuIarities inside the unit circIe Ieads to a causaI
sequence, e.g.
