A Survey of Bandwidth Smoothing Techniques
After the introduction of the critical bandwidth based smoothing techniques, several new bandwidth smoothing techniques have appeared in the literature. In this chapter, we briefly review the bandwidth smoothing techniques described in the last chapter and present the bandwidth smoothing algorithms that have since appeared in the literature. After a discussion of the various bandwidth smoothing algorithms, we contrast and compare the algorithms using several metrics, highlighting the unique properties that each algorithm exhibits.
