A method by which every multidimensional (M-D) filter with an arbitrary parallelepiped-shaped passband support can be designed and implemented efficiently is presented. It is shown that all such filters can be designed starting from an appropriate one-dimensional prototype filter and performing a simple transformation. With D denoting the number of dimensions, the complexity of design and implementation of the M-D filter are reduced from O(ND) to O(N). Using the polyphase technique, an implementation with complexity of only 2N is obtained in the two-dimensional. Even though the filters designed are in general nonseparable, they have separable polyphase components. One special application of this method is in M-D multirate signal processing, where filters with parallelepiped-shaped passbands are used in decimation, interpolation, and filter banks. Some generalizations and other applications of this approach, including M-D uniform discrete Fourier transform (DFT) quadrature mirror filter banks that achieve perfect reconstruction, are studied. Several design example are given.
