The least-squares (LS) and stochastic gradient (SG) lattice prediction algorithms are compared using two different performance criteria. These are a) output mean squared error and b) the accuracy of the autoregressive spectral estimate obtained from the mean values of the lattice coefficients, assuming a stationary input. It is found that the second performance criterion is more sensitive than the first. This “spectral” performance criterion is a measure of the accuracy of the estimated autoregressive model coefficients. Bias in the LS and SG coefficient estimates can cause significant deviation of the asymptotic spectral estimates from the actual input spectrum: The similarly between the LS and SG lattice algorithms enables comparative simulations.
