It is known that the performance of adaptive algorithms is constrained by their computational cost. Thus, affine projection adaptive algorithms achieve higher convergence speed when the projection order increases, which is at the expense of a higher computational cost. However, regardless of computational cost, a high projection order also leads to higher final error at steady state. For this reason it seems advisable to reduce the computational cost of the algorithm when high convergence speed is not needed (steady state) and to maintain or increase this cost only when the algorithm is in transient state to encourage rapid transit to the permanent regime. The adaptive order affine projection algorithm presented here addresses this subject. This algorithm adapts its projection order and step size depending on its convergence state by simple and meaningful rules. Thus it achieves good convergence behavior at every convergence state and very low computational cost at steady state. © 2012 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
