Abstract

The least mean-square (LMS) is a search algorithm in which a simplification of the gradient vector computation is made possible by appropriately modifying the objective function [1]–[2]. The LMS algorithm, as well as others related to it, is widely used in various applications of adaptive filtering due to its computational simplicity [3]–[7]. The convergence characteristics of the LMS algorithm are examined in order to establish a range for the convergence factor that will guarantee stability. The convergence speed of the LMS is shown to be dependent of the eigenvalue spread of the input-signal correlation matrix [2]–[6]. In this chapter, several properties of the LMS algorithm are discussed including the misadjustment in stationary and nonstationary environments [2]– [9], tracking performance, and finite wordlength effects [10]–[12].
