investigates these robustness issues, comparing both


methods (and derived methods) to order estimation algorithms


for, e.g., subspace-fitting methods. An important


point developed hereunder is the implicit order estimation


schemes present in linear prediction based methods


and their influence on identification performance. Furthermore,


we develop a new order estimation method, of


low computational cost and giving the channel estimate


as a by-product.




Linear prediction based algorithms have been applied to


the multi-channel FIR identification problem. In [11], it


was shown that oversampled and/or multiple antenna received


signals may be modeled as well as low rank MA


processes as low rank AR processes. Indeed, taking FIR


nature and the singularity of the MA process into account


(due to the fact that the number of channels is bigger than


the number of sources) leads to a finite order prediction


filter (i.e. AR(
