Symbolic analysis and design of communication systems using computer algebra systems

Prof. Dr Miroslav Lutovac Dr Dejan TošićSchool of Electrical Engineering at the University of Belgrade, Serbia

- Get back to basic understanding
- Numeric vs. Symbolic Computation
- Computer as a symbol processor
- Schematic as a symbolic object
- Programs as knowledge repositories
- A step by step example: QAM
- Benefits from symbolic techniques

- It has become so easy to do so much computation using computers that people will press keys on the keyboard without thinking what they are doing
- It's so easy to generate a tremendous amount of garbagethat you've got to understand what it is you're doing

Fifty Years of SP (1998), page 54

- So it is very important that we get back to basic understanding, get a much better grounding of what science underlies the phenomenon we are looking at
- I mean, this world is not an ideal world
- It's time-varying and nonlinear

Fifty Years of SP (1998), page 54

- Young people or anybody, really who are using these tools have got to thoroughly understandwhat assumptions underlie the tool that they are using
- That will tell them what they can expect to get out

Fifty Years of SP (1998), page 54

Numeric is false

Symbolic is true

a ≈ 0, a ≠ 0

- Symbolic analysis of systems is inherently immune to the problem imposed by algebraic loops occurring when two or more blocks with direct feed-through of their inputs form a feedback loop
- Numeric simulations of algebraic loops considerably reduce the speed of a simulation and may be unsolvable
- Symbolic simulation successfully and accurately computes the required response;it finds the exact solution

- Computers have become recognized as symbol processors(Oppenheim and Nawab 1992)
- Program can be viewed as a set of instructions for manipulating symbols
- Numbers are only one of the kinds of symbols that the computer can handle

- System model is a symbolic object
- It contains all details for drawing, symbolic solving, simulating, and implementing:
- Analyze the schematic as the symbolic object
- Identify symbolic system parameters
- Knowledge embedded in the schematic object can be used to generate implementation code or to derive transfer function

system = {

{"Multiplier", {{6, 0}, {6, 3}}, k1},

{"Delay", {{4, 5}, {4, 7}}, 1},

{"Adder",{{7,8},{8,5},{9,8},{8,9}},{1,1,2,0}},

{"Input", {0, 8}, "X"},

{"Output", {9, 8}, "Y1L"},

...,

{"Line", {{6, 8}, {7, 8}}} }

1. Find transfer function

s = H1*(H1/. z->1/z) + H2*(H2/. z->1/z) //FullSimplify

2. Simplify expression

- Symbol processor with the appropriate programs is usable on a much wider range of tasks, such as intelligence amplifier or augmenting our ability to think
- Programming has become a task of knowledge accumulation telling the computer what to know, when to use, and how to apply the knowledge in solving problems

- WHAT TO KNOW: symbolic object that contains a procedure for automated generation of the schematic for an arbitrary number of parts
- HOW TO APPLY: draw system, solve symbolically, simulate, and implement system
- Automatically generate system parameters
- Automatically generate schematic with symbolic or numeric parameters
- Solve symbolically: find the transfer function, impulse response, or property of the system from the schematic
- Automatically generate implementation code
- Simulate for specified symbolic parameter values

- WHAT TO KNOW: symbolic object that contains a procedure for automated generation of the schematic for an arbitrary number of parts
- WHEN TO USE:
- When Laplace or z-transform cannot be found
- When numeric computations fail
- When symbolic expressions have a large number of parameters
- When derivation by hand is very time consuming and difficult
- When symbolic optimization can reduce the number of parameters used in numeric optimization

- Programs are viewed as knowledge repositories
- Programs should be written to communicate …
- … not simply to compute

1. draw basic part of system

5. Save as function,

add knowledge of a system

{schematicSpec, inps, outs} =

SchematicFunction[params, …{x0, y0}, options]

2. draw input

(* generate schematic by replicating the basic part *)

numberOfStages = 7;

adaptiveSystem = TranslateSchematic[...

adaptiveSystem = Join[adaptiveSystem, ...

Do[adaptiveSystem = Join[adaptiveSystem,...

aK -> ToExpression["a"~StringJoin~ ... {k, numberOfStages}];

3. draw output

4. write code

numStages = 3

Invoke from the knowledge repository

p = UnitSymbolicSequence[numStages + 1, k, 0]

parameterSymbols = Join[{b}, p] // Flatten

{hsSystem, inpCoordsHS, outCoordsHS} =

HighSpeedIIR3FIRHalfbandFilterSchematic[parameterSymbols];

ShowSchematic[hsSystem]

system = {

{"Multiplier",{{6,0},{6,3}},k1},

{"Delay",{{4,5},{4,7}},1},

{"Adder",{{7,8},...,{1,1,2,0}},

{"Input",{0,8},"X"},...,

{"Line",{{6,8},{7,8}}}}

s = H1*(H1/. z->1/z) + H2*(H2/. z->1/z) //FullSimplify

s = H1*(H1/. z->1/z) + H2*(H2/. z->1/z) //FullSimplify

Solve[s == 1, k0]

num3 = Numerator[h3L//Together]/. z -> -1

Solve[num3==0, k2]

DiscreteSystemImplementation[hsSystem,"hsf"]

1. Output variables

{{Y9p8, Y9p0, Y31p0},

{Y4p5, Y4p3, Y2p8}} =

hsf[{Y0p8},{Y4p7, Y4p5, Y28p0},

{b, k0, k1, k2, k3}] is the template for calling the procedure.

The general template is {outputSamples,

finalConditions} = procedureName[inputSamples,

initialConditions, systemParameters].

Efficient method for approximating the reciprocal using a modified Newton-Raphson iteration

- Draw the schematic of algorithm
- Automatically generate a code that implements the systemDiscreteSystemImplementation[systemNR, "implementNR"];
- Compute the successive output values{{y2}, {d2}} = implementNR[{x,2}, {d1}, {}];{{y3}, {d3}} = implementNR[{x,2}, {d2}, {}];
- Eliminate the initial states and find the relation between the output sampleseqns = Reduce[{y[n - 1] == y2, y[n] == y3}, {d1}];
- Find the recurrence equationreducedEqn = (x*y[n-1]^2 == 2*y[n-1] - y[n]);
- Load knowledge for solving recurrence equations<<DiscreteMath`RSolve`
- Find a closed-form solutionsol = RSolve[{reducedEqn,y[0]==b},y[n],n];

- Example: algorithm for implementation of an efficient method for approximating the reciprocal using a modified Newton-Raphson iteration
- Find the initial guess to minimize the error of the approximate reciprocal in terms of the given number x, the initial guess b and the number of iterations n:FindRoot[e[n] + 1/2^16 == 0, {b,2}];
- Solution: b = 1.98923
- The error is smaller than 2-16 for x over the range 0.01 < x < 1

- Contemporary trends to use very sophisticated algorithms combine expertise in many areas, such as communications engineering, computer science, ICT, and signal processing
- Current symbolic computation environments are powerful in doing symbolic and mixed symbolic-numeric mathematics for technical computing

- Programs provide knowledge about design and employ the knowledge in symbolic manipulation:
- automated generation of schematic objects and the corresponding implementation codes
- derivation of the transfer function, system properties and time response
- symbolic optimization

- Superiority of symbolic computation against numerical computation was shown by
- the example system with an algebraic loop; CAS yielded the exact solution while the traditional numeric approach failed
- the closed-form solution of a nonlinear LMS subsystem
- deriving the analytic expression for the error of the Newton-Raphson iteration

- Benefits of symbolic methods were highlighted from the viewpoint of
- Academia (derivation of time and frequency response, proving system properties)
- Industry (QAM, Hilbert transformer, LMS algorithm, verification of realizations, design alternatives in multirate systems)
