G. Luenberger, Introduction to Linear and Nonlinear Programming, Addison Wesley, Reading, MA, 1973. 1 INTRODUCTION This chapter includes a brief review of deterministic and random signal representations. Due to the extent of those subjects our review is limited to the concepts that are directly relevant to adaptive filtering. The properties of the correlation matrix of the input signal vector are investigated in so me detail, since they play a key role in the statistical analysis of the adaptive filtering algorithms.
The sum of the eigenvalues of R is equal to the trace of R, and the product of the eigenvalues of R is equal to the determinant of R. Proof: tr[Q-1RQ] = tr[A] where, tr[A] = 2:[:0 aii· Since tr[A' A] = tr[AA'], we have N tr[Q-l RQ] = tr[RQQ-l] = tr[RI] = tr[R] = LAi i=O Also det[Q-l RQJ = det[RJ det[QJ det[Q-l] = det[R] = det[A] = n[:o Ai D 34 CHAPTER 2 7. 68) where the minimum and maximum values are reached when the vector w is chosen to be the eigenvector corresponding to the minimum and maximum eigenvalues, respectively.
