        The goal Introduction of PhD students with principles, theoretical concepts and algorithms for array processing of acoustical signals on microphone arrays.
        The outcome It is expected that PhD students are trained in basics of array processing of acoustical signals on microphone arrays and trained in independent research activities in that field.
        Contents of lectures Introduction to theory of array processing of acoustical signals. Mathematical modeling of acoustical signals on microphone array (planar and spherical waves). Spatial filtration (beamforming and null-steering). Direction of Arrival (DOA) estimation of acoustical waves and geolocalization of acoustical sources (two and one-step localization methods). MUSIC method. Adaptive microphone arrays. Acoustical spatio-temporal channel models. Principles of acoustical space-time communications. Acoustical MIMO channel sounders. Application of acoustical array processing in acustic camera. Identification and characterization of sound and vibration sources based on application of acustic camera. Medical application of acoustic array processing.
