During the last two decades, multirate filter banks have found various applications in many different areas, such as speech coding, scrambling, adaptive signal processing, image compression, signal and image processing applications as well as transmission of several signals through the same channel (Malvar, 1992a; Vaidyanathan, 1993; Vetterli and Kovacevic, 1995; Fliege, 1994; Misiti, Misiti, Oppenheim and Poggi, 1996). The main idea of using multirate filter banks is the ability of the system to separate in the frequency domain the signal under consideration into two or more signals or to compose two or more different signals into a single signal.
