Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a research book, a monograph, devoted to an actual problem: the design of the acoustic front-end to provide a seamless and hands-free communication in the frame of the human / machine interaction. … the theory is developed at an adequate mathematical level together with numerous experiments enforcing the conceptual frame. … The book represents an excellent ‘instrument de travail’ for specialists in statistical and adaptive signal processing." (D. Stanomir, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2006 e)
