"This dissertation proposes four new algorithms based on fractionally lower order statistics for adaptive filtering in a non-Gaussian interference environment. One is the affine projection sign algorithm (APSA) based on L₁ norm minimization, which combines the ability of decorrelating colored input and suppressing divergence when an outlier occurs. The second one is the variable-step-size normalized sign algorithm (VSS-NSA), which adjusts its step size automatically by matching the L₁ norm of the a posteriori error to that of noise. The third one adopts the same variable-step-size scheme but extends L₁ minimization to Lp minimization and the variable step-size normalized fractionally lower-order moment (VSS-NFLOM) algorithms are generalized. Instead of variable step size, the variable order is another trial to facilitate adaptive algorithms where no a priori statistics are available, which leads to the variable-order least mean pth norm (VO-LMP) algorithm, as the fourth one. These algorithms are applied to system identification for impulsive interference suppression, echo cancelation, and noise reduction. They are also applied to a phased array radar system with space-time adaptive processing (beamforming) to combat heavy-tailed non-Gaussian clutters. The proposed algorithms are tested by extensive computer simulations. The results demonstrate significant performance improvements in terms of convergence rate, steady-state error, computational simplicity, and robustness against impulsive noise and interference"--Abstract, page iv.
