Peter Kroon: CS-ACELP speech compression system with adaptive pitch prediction filter gain based on a measure of periodicity. Lucent Technologies, Thomas A Restaino, Kenneth M Brown, September 2, 1997: US05664055 (214 worldwide citation)

A speech coding system employing an adaptive codebook model of periodicity is augmented with a pitch-predictive filter (PPF). This PPF has a delay equal to the integer component of the pitch-period and a gain which is adaptive based on a measure of periodicity of the speech signal. In accordance wit ...
