Variable step size LMS is generally used to improve the speed of convergence or decrease steady-state error. Leaky adaptation is used to combat problems like the potential instability of the filter in a finite-precision implementation. It is closely related to the L2 norm regularization technique and results in continuous downscaling of filter coefficients (hence smoothing the extracted filter). So comparing these two techniques is not that meaningful. In fact, you can easily use both techniques together to achieve all the above advantages together.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for your reply. If i understood correctly, Leaky adaptaion is more favor in hardware implementation. Let me be more specific then and ask you if you provide me applications where leaky performs better than VSSLMS; and applications where VSSLMS is preferred over Leaky LMS. $\endgroup$
