Paper Abstract

This paper describes a new family of algorithms for adaptive weight computation for sensor arrays with arbitrary geometries. This family includes existing algorithms of the steepest-descent and matrix-factorization types, plus a range of new algorithms that are intermediate between these two classes, in terms of performance and computational complexity. This approach is particularly valuable for applications where steepest descent is too slow, but the standard matrix methods require too much computation.
