Single-channel hands-free teleconferencing systems are becoming popular. In order to enhance the communication quality of these systems, more and more stereophonic sound devices with two loudspeakers and two microphones are deployed. Because of the coupling between loudspeakers and microphones, there may be strong echoes, which make real-time communication very difficult. The best way we know to cancel these echoes is via a stereo acoustic echo canceller (SAEC), which can be modelled as a two-input/two-output system with real random variables. In this work, the authors recast this problem into a single-input/single-output system with complex random variables thanks to the widely linear model. From this new convenient formulation, they re-derive the most important aspects of a SAEC, including identification of the echo paths with adaptive filters, double-talk detection, and suppression.

Telecommunication systems and human-machine interfaces have begun using multiple microphones and loudspeakers to render interaction more lifelike, and more efficient. This raises acoustic signal processing problems under multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) scenarios, encompassing distant speech acquisition, sound source localization and tracking, echo and noise control, source separation and speech dereverberation, and many others. The book opens with an acoustic MIMO paradigm, establishing fundamentals, and linking acoustic MIMO signal processing with classical signal processing and communication theories. The second part of the book presents a novel analysis of acoustic applications carried out in the paradigm to reinforce the fundamentals of acoustic MIMO signal processing.

In the past few years we have written and edited several books in the area of acousticandspeechsignalprocessing. Thereasonbehindthisendeavoristhat there were almost no books available in the literature when we ?rst started while there was (and still is) a real need to publish manuscripts summarizing the most useful ideas, concepts, results, and state-of-the-art algorithms in this important area of research. According to all the feedback we have received so far, we can say that we were right in doing this. Recently, several other researchers have followed us in this journey and have published interesting books with their own visions and perspectives. The idea of writing a book on Microphone Array Signal Processing comes from discussions we have had with many colleagues and friends. As a c- sequence of these discussions, we came up with the conclusion that, again, there is an urgent need for a monograph that carefully explains the theory and implementation of microphone arrays. While there are many manuscripts on antenna arrays from a narrowband perspective (narrowband signals and narrowband processing), the literature is quite scarce when it comes to s- sor arrays explained from a truly broadband perspective. Many algorithms for speech applications were simply borrowed from narrowband antenna - rays. However, a direct application of narrowband ideas to broadband speech processing may not be necessarily appropriate and can lead to many m- understandings.

This book explains digital signal processing topics in detail, with a particular focus on ease of understanding. Accordingly, it includes a wealth of examples to aid in comprehension, and stresses simplicity. The book is divided into four chapters, which respectively address the topics sampling of continuous time signals; multirate signal processing; the discrete Fourier transform; and filter design concepts. It provides original practical techniques to draw the spectrum of aliased signals, together with well-designed numerical examples to illustrate the operation of the fast transforms, filter algorithms, and circuit designs. Readers of this book should already have some basic understanding of signals and transforms. They will learn fundamental concepts for signals and systems, as the focus is more on digital signal processing concepts rather than continuous time signal processing topics.
