Abstract : An adaptive procedure is described and demonstrated which causes a reduction of the mean-square error of a linear stationary random process, without explicit knowledge of the characteristics of the process. The procedure involves recursive simultaneous adjustment of an arbitrary number of parameters in a feedback compensator. The adjustment is based on estimations of the error gradient in the space of the adjustable parameters. (Author)
