poly2ac

Convert prediction filter polynomial to autocorrelation sequence

Syntax

r = poly2ac(a,efinal)

Description

r = poly2ac(a,efinal) returns the autocorrelation vector, r, corresponding to the autoregressive prediction filter polynomial, a, and the final prediction error, efinal. r is approximately equal to the autocorrelation of the output of a prediction filter with coefficients a. If a(1) is not equal to 1, poly2ac normalizes the prediction filter polynomial by a(1). a(1) cannot be 0.

Examples

collapse all

Given a prediction filter polynomial, a, and a final prediction error, efinal, find the autocorrelation sequence.

a = [1.0000 0.6147 0.9898 0.0004 0.0034 -0.0077];
efinal = 0.2;
r = poly2ac(a,efinal)
r = 6×1

   -1.7277
   -4.4231
    4.3985
    1.6426
   -5.3126

Tips

You can apply this function to both real and complex polynomials.
