Consider the (symmetric, linear phase) ﬁnite impulse response (FIR) ﬁlter described by its frequency response N ak cos kω, H (ω ) = a 0 + k=1 where ω ∈ [0, π ] is the frequency. The design variables in our problems are the real coeﬃcients a = (a0 , . . . , aN ) ∈ RN +1 , where N is called the order or length of the FIR ﬁlter. In this problem we will explore the design of a low-pass lter, with speciﬁcations: • For 0 ≤ ω ≤ π/3, 0.89 ≤ H (ω ) ≤ 1.12, i.e., the ﬁlter has about ±1dB ripple in the ‘passband’ [0, π/3]. • For ωc ≤ ω ≤ π , |H (ω )| ≤ α. In other words, the ﬁlter achieves an attenuation given by α in the ‘stopband’ [ωc , π ]. Here ωc is called the ﬁlter ‘cutoﬀ frequency’. (It is called a low-pass ﬁlter since low frequencies are allowed to pass, but frequencies above the cutoﬀ frequency are attenuated.) These speciﬁcations are depicted graphically in the ﬁgure below.
