The adaptation of an IIR filter is a very difficult problem due to its non-quadratic performance surface and potential instability. Conventional adaptive IIR algorithms suffer from potential instability problems and a high cost for stability monitoring. Therefore, there is much interest in adaptive IIR filters based on alternative algorithms. Genetic algorithms are a family of search algorithms based on natural selection and genetics. They have been successfully used in many different areas. Genetic algorithms applied to the adaptation of IIR filtering problems are studied in this thesis, and show that the genetic algorithm approach has a number of advantages over conventional gradient algorithms, particularly, for the adaptation of high order adaptive IIR filters, IIR filters with poles close to the unit circle and IIR filters with multi-modal error surfaces. The conventional gradient algorithms have difficulty solving these problems. Coefficient results are presented for various orders of IIR filters in this thesis. In the computer simulations presented in this thesis, the direct, cascade, parallel and lattice form IIR filter structures have been used and compared. The lattice form IIR filter structure shows its superiority over the cascade and parallel form IIR filter structures in terms of its mean square error convergence performance.
