## ABSTRACTSpectral factorization methods are used for the estimation of minimum - phase time series from a given power spectrum. We present an efficient technique for spectral factorization, based on Newton's method. We show how to apply the method to the factorization of both auto and cross-spectra, and present a simple example of 2-D deconvolution in the helical coordinate system. |
