A nonlinear model of the peripheral auditory system is proposed. The spectral analysis is performed by a bank of overlapping bandpass filters. These auditory filters provide a functional representation of the operation performed by the inner ear. The model can be used as a preprocessor for e.g. speech recognition systems, loudness models, or the evaluation of audio coding systems.
