The kepstrum (or complex cepstrum) method is revisited and applied to the problem of spectral factorization
where the spectrum is directly estimated from observations. The solution to this problem in turn leads to a new
approach to optimal filtering, smoothing and prediction using the Wiener theory. Unlike previous approaches to
adaptive and self-tuning filtering, the technique, when implemented, does not require a priori information on the
type or order of the signal generating model. And unlike other approaches - with the exception of spectral
subtraction - no state-space or polynomial model is necessary. In this first paper results are restricted to
stationary signal and additive white noise.
