Entropy minimization based robust algorithm for adaptive networks
In this paper, the problem of estimating the impulse responses of individual nodes in a network of nodes is dealt. It was shown by the previous work in literature that when the nodes can interact with each other, fusion based adaptive filtering approaches are more effective than handling nodes independently. Here we are proposing the use of entropy functional based optimization in the adaptive filtering stage. We tested the new method on networks under Gaussian and ε-contaminated Gaussian noise. The results show that the proposed method achieves significant improvements in the error rates in case of ε-contaminated noise. © 2012 IEEE.
