Multirate filters

Started by maverick.gvs October 11, 2008
hi all,
I am working on polyphase filter bank design. I want some pointers on 
(i)how to avoid aliasing from other bands? 
(ii)what are the important steps while considering the design of prototype
filter?
(iii)How to avoid the amplitude distortion?
(iv)How to design filter banks with different passband widths?

thanks in advance

what is 'amplitude distortion'?

1) aliasing can be avoid if proper bandedges are chosen, otherwise, minimizing the aliasing should be considered. 2,3,4) chosing the right bandedges and formulating the design problem as a optimization problem, as a function of the prototype filter. Lin. S.
