### Predict Mean Squared Error for LMS Filter

The mean squared error (MSE) measures the average of the squares of the errors between the desired signal and the primary signal input to the adaptive filter. Reducing this error converges the primary input to the desired signal. Determine the predicted value of MSE and the simulated value of MSE at each time instant using the `msepred`

and `msesim`

functions. Compare these MSE values with each other and with respect to the minimum MSE and steady-state MSE values. In addition, compute the sum of the squares of the coefficient errors given by the trace of the coefficient covariance matrix.

**Initialization**

Create a `dsp.FIRFilter`

System object™ that represents the unknown system. Pass the signal, `x`

*,* to the FIR filter. The output of the unknown system is the desired signal, `d`

, which is the sum of the output of the unknown system (FIR filter) and an additive noise signal, `n`

.

num = fir1(31,0.5); fir = dsp.FIRFilter('Numerator',num); iir = dsp.IIRFilter('Numerator',sqrt(0.75),... 'Denominator',[1 -0.5]); x = iir(sign(randn(2000,25))); n = 0.1*randn(size(x)); d = fir(x) + n;

**LMS Filter**

Create a `dsp.LMSFilter`

System object to create a filter that adapts to output the desired signal. Set the length of the adaptive filter to 32 taps, step size to 0.008, and the decimation factor for analysis and simulation to 5. The variable `simmse`

represents the simulated MSE between the output of the unknown system, `d`

, and the output of the adaptive filter. The variable `mse`

gives the corresponding predicted value.

l = 32; mu = 0.008; m = 5; lms = dsp.LMSFilter('Length',l,'StepSize',mu); [mmse,emse,meanW,mse,traceK] = msepred(lms,x,d,m); [simmse,meanWsim,Wsim,traceKsim] = msesim(lms,x,d,m);

**Plot the MSE Results**

Compare the values of simulated MSE, predicted MSE, minimum MSE, and the final MSE. The final MSE value is given by the sum of minimum MSE and excess MSE.

nn = m:m:size(x,1); semilogy(nn,simmse,[0 size(x,1)],[(emse+mmse)... (emse+mmse)],nn,mse,[0 size(x,1)],[mmse mmse]) title('Mean Squared Error Performance') axis([0 size(x,1) 0.001 10]) legend('MSE (Sim.)','Final MSE','MSE','Min. MSE') xlabel('Time Index') ylabel('Squared Error Value')

The predicted MSE follows the same trajectory as the simulated MSE. Both these trajectories converge with the steady-state (final) MSE.

**Plot the Coefficient Trajectories**

`meanWsim`

is the mean value of the simulated coefficients given by `msesim`

. `meanW`

is the mean value of the predicted coefficients given by `msepred`

.

Compare the simulated and predicted mean values of LMS filter coefficients 12,13,14, and 15.

plot(nn,meanWsim(:,12),'b',nn,meanW(:,12),'r',nn,... meanWsim(:,13:15),'b',nn,meanW(:,13:15),'r') PlotTitle ={'Average Coefficient Trajectories for';... 'W(12), W(13), W(14), and W(15)'}

`PlotTitle = `*2x1 cell*
{'Average Coefficient Trajectories for'}
{'W(12), W(13), W(14), and W(15)' }

title(PlotTitle) legend('Simulation','Theory') xlabel('Time Index') ylabel('Coefficient Value')

In steady state, both the trajectories converge.

**Sum of Squared Coefficient Errors**

Compare the sum of the squared coefficient errors given by `msepred`

and `msesim`

. These values are given by the trace of the coefficient covariance matrix.

semilogy(nn,traceKsim,nn,traceK,'r') title('Sum-of-Squared Coefficient Errors') axis([0 size(x,1) 0.0001 1]) legend('Simulation','Theory') xlabel('Time Index') ylabel('Squared Error Value')

## Output Arguments

`mmse`

— Minimum mean squared error

scalar

Minimum mean squared error (mmse), returned as a scalar. This parameter is
estimated using a Wiener filter. The Wiener filter minimizes the mean
squared error between the desired signal and the input signal filtered by
the Wiener filter. A large value of the mean squared error indicates that
the adaptive filter cannot accurately track the desired signal. The minimal
value of the mean squared error ensures that the adaptive filter is optimal.
The minimum mean squared error between a particular frame of the desired
signal and the filtered signal is computed as the variance between the two
frames of signals. The `msepred`

function outputs the
average of the mmse values for all the frames. For more details on how this
parameter is calculated, see Algorithms.

`emse`

instant, returned as a matrix. The columns of this matrix contain
predictions of the mean values of the LMS adaptive filter coefficients at
each time instant. If the decimation factor, `m`

filter at each time instant, returned as a column vector. If the decimation
factor, `m`
