Should give examples of some popular filter banks, and also talk about perfect reconstruction.

Stub tag[edit]

I'm putting a stub tag to this article. There are many volumes of books on filter banks, and filter banks are being used in virtually every signal processing application nowadays.--C6H12O6 11:06, 30 November 2006 (UTC)


We say "A filter bank is an array of band-pass filters". But bandpass filters produce bandpass outputs, which are not down-converted and decimated. But many structures called "filter banks" also do the down-conversion. And subsequent synthesis algorithms must include upconversion.

We also say "With the polyphase matrix you easily answer the question for the perfect reconstruction property of a filter bank." That doesn't appear to be a correct English sentence. Besides that, I don't think it is a correct statement, because of the important detail of the design of the analysis and synthesis filters.

So here is the actual book cover image

That is beside the point, it is still not the proper way to format a citation. SpinningSpark 19:43, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

No, that's a different point. The point is whether or not fred harris "uses capitalization". Here's another counter-example: And I can scan the title pages inside the book, if you like.

As to your next point, check out these edits by other editors:

Multidimensional Filter Bank Design[edit]

Potentially a good addition to the article. But chock full of errors. Not up to Wikipedia standards. Here are some examples:

  • It has a wide application prospect, researches in this area are very important when people try to get insight to the multidimensional signal. (punctuation)
  • Also filters can be used both in one dimensional signal processing and multidimensional signal processing; and by processing the signal, we can get one or more certain kinds of signal that may be used under different kinds of conditions. (doesn't say anything useful)
  • In recent decades, sub-band handing becomes more and more popular in some fields like image & video processing, communication and so on. (verb tense)
  • However, many of signals mentioned before are hi-dimensional, which ask for the well design of hi-dimensional filter banks. (various problems)

And those are just the first paragraph, of many.

  • Oversampled filter banks are multirate filter banks where the number of channels is larger than the sampling rate.

I assume this is trying to say that the more channels you have, the less bandwidth per channel, and the lower the Nyquist rate. So a fixed sample rate will exceed Nyquist above some minimum number of channels. But "number of channels" and "sampling rate" are quantities with different units.

And so on.
