wiener filtering

Started by "Hi, There" May 2, 2006
Hi, There,

Anyone use wiener filter to remove noise of
one-dimension signals?

I appreciate it very much if you can suggest any
papers? Matleb codes are welcome.

Thanks,

Frank
Thanks for your response.

I have a raw data collected from a machine. It is very
noisy. A researcher suggests us to adopt Wienier
Filter to remove the noise.

I didn't find a Matlab command to do so except wiener2
that is used to remove the noise of images.

I want to know the specific algorithm of Wiener
Filter. Therefore, I hope anyone can suggest a paper
on Wiener Filter.

Thank you.

Frank

Dear Parag,

Thanks for your response very much.

I will check it in Matlab and let you know my results.

Regards,

Frank

Hi Frank,

There are many denoising methods.. The dummiest method of denoising is to use the spectral subtraction where you estimate the noise spectrum and subtract that from the noisy signal.

a bit more complex and but surely efficient way of denoising is to use either Wavelet Shrinkage Denoising or Wiener Filterin instead of spectral subtraction.

If you do not know a priori about the smoothness class of your signal, then none of
the alternative procedures can perform better than Wavelet Shrinkage method.
Wavelet Shrinkage Denoising permits discontinuities and spatial variation in
the signal and exploits the spatially adaptive multiresolution features. Anyhow, it is more complex compared to wiener linear estimation.

On the other hand, main advantage of Wiener Filtering is that it takes a very short time to find the optimal solution in the sense that we have a priori knowledge about the signal. One constraint in the use of Wiener filtering is that signal and noise should be gaussian processes for optimality and you should note that it is not always possible compute the Covariance matrix!

However, in the end, both methods are superior to spectral subtraction!!

you can find the matlab codes for both Waveler Shrinkage and Wiener Denoisers at

I agree that Weiner filtering needs the co-variace matrix if implemented
in the matrix form. However if solved iteratively as in the LMS
algorithm ( stochastic gradient method ) one does not need the knowledge
of the Co-variance matrix.

Could you point me to some literature on Wavelet Shrinkage Denoising ?

Thanks

Parag

Hi Parag,

There is fair amount of information related to Wavelet Shrinkage Denoising in the literature. As far as I could recall, one good paper I had was "The what, How, and Why of Wavelet Shrinkage Denoising".. you can google it..

if you also need the matlab simulation codes, I have it on my web site.
here is the link;
