To develop new adaptive algorithms for adaptive feedback cancellation. New approaches by using sparse adaptive algorithms, the division-less and multiplierless Dichotomous Coordinate Descent (DCD) method, Gauss-Seidel (GS)method, integrating ANC algorithms and considering innovative hypothesis of widely linear perspective are proposed. The DCD based methods or combinations of AP/proportionate AP/RLS algorithms and their widely linear versions haven´t been applied yet for the hearing aid application.
To develop new algorithms for noise canceling. A new approach an integration of noise canceling with AFC algorithms considering the widely linear perspective is proposed. Also, a combination of AFC and PI´s designed ANC algorithms will be investigated. An investigation of using a different structure than the filtered-x structure for ANC integrated with AFC hasn´t been studied yet.
