This graph contains two waveforms. One wave is identified by a thin solid line and the other is identified by a dotted line. The x-axis is labeled ω/π and the y-axis is labeled |H(ω)|. Both wave forms follow the same general path. They start high on the y-axis and proceed to the right. The waves drop drastically to the x-axis and bounce along the x-axis until the end of the graph. The upper portion of the waves are bound vertically by two sets of horizontal line. Solid line has a greated amplitude and contained within these bounds are two dotted lines which mark the bounds of the dotted line. The dotted line has a smaller amplitude. After the drastic descent, the upper bound of the solid line wave is marked by a solid line. The dotted line wave's upper bound is marked by a horizontal dotted line. The amplitude of the solid line is greater than the dotted line.
Effects of transition bands in l filters.

These two results together illustrate the importance of the transition bandwidth for a CLS design. Clearly one can decrease maximum error tolerances by widening the transition band. Yet finding the perfect balance between a transition bandwidth and a given tolerance can prove a difficult task, as will be shown in [link] . Hence the relevance of a CLS method that is not restricted by two types of specifications competing against each other. In principle, one should just determine how much error one can live with, and allow an algorithm to find the optimal transition band that meets such tolerance.

Two problem solutions

[link] introduced some important remarks regarding the behavior of extrema points and transition bands in l 2 and l filters. As one increases the constraints on an l 2 filter, the result is a filter whose frequency response looks more and more like an l filter.

[link] introduced the frequency-varying problem and an IRLS-based method to solve it. It was also mentioned that, while the method does not solve the intended problem (but a similar one), it could prove to be useful for the CLS problem. As it turns out, in CLS design one is merely interested in solving an unweighted, constrained least squares problem. In this work, we achieve this by solving a sequence of weighted, unconstrained least squares problems, where the sole role of the weights is to "constraint" the maximum error of the frequency response at each iteration. In other words, one would like to find weights w such that

min h D ( ω ) - H ( ω ; h ) 2 subject to D ( ω ) - H ( ω ; h ) τ ω [ 0 , ω p b ] [ ω s b , π ]

is equivalent to

min h w ( ω ) · ( D ( ω ) - H ( ω ; h ) ) 2

Hence one can revisit the frequency-varying design method and use it to solve the CLS problem. Assuming that one can reasonably approximate l by using high values of p , at each iteration the main idea is to use an l p weighting function only at frequencies where the constraints are exceeded. A formal formulation of this statement is

w ϵ ( ω ) = | ϵ ( ω ) | p - 2 2 if | ϵ ( ω ) | > τ 1 otherwise

Assuming a suitable weighting function existed such that the specified tolerances are related to the frequency response constraints, the IRLS method would iterate and assign rather large weights to frequencies exceeding the constraints, while inactive frequencies get a weight of one. As the method iterates, frequencies with large errors move the response closer to the desired tolerance. Ideally, all the active constraint frequencies would eventually meet the constraints. Therefore the task becomes to find a suitable weighting function that penalizes large errors in order to have all the frequencies satisfying the constraints; once this condition is met, we have reached the desired solution.

This image contains three graphs. The first graph represents Polynomial weighting (p=100). The second graph represents Linear-log view (p=100), and the third graph represents Linear-log view (p=500). The x-axis is labeled ε for all of these graphs, and the y-axis is labeled w(ε).
CLS polynomial weighting function.

One proposed way to find adequate weights to meet constraints is given by a polynomial weighting function of the form

w ( ω ) = 1 + ϵ ( ω ) τ p - 2 2

where τ effectively serves as a threshold to determine whether a weight is dominated by either unity or the familiar l p weighting term. [link] illustrates the behavior of such a curve.

Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
