This book provides the reader for the first time with a comprehensive collection of the significant results obtained to date in the field of parametric signal modeling and presents a number of new approaches.

It begins by introducing discrete-time linear models such as AR, MA and ARMA models, their properties and their limitations, before addressing sinusoidal models. Estimation approaches based on least squares methods and instrumental variable techniques are then presented. Finally, the book deals with optimal filters, such as Wiener and Kalman filtering, and adaptive filters such as the RLS, the LMS and their variants.
