Paper Abstract

An adaptive filtering algorithm is developed for the class of stack filters, which is a class of nonlinear filters obeying a weak superposition property. The adaptation algorithm can be interpreted as a learning algorithm for a group of decision-making units, the decisions of which are subject to a set of constraints called the stacking constraints. Under a rather weak statistical assumption on the training inputs, the decision strategy adopted by the group, which evolves according to the proposed learning algorithm, can be shown to converge asymptotically to an optimal strategy in the sense that it corresponds to an optimal stack filter under the mean absolute error criterion. This adaptive algorithm requires only increment, decrement and comparison operations and only local interconnections between the learning units. Implementation of the algorithm in hardware is therefore very feasible.
