Recently, the data-selective adaptive Volterra filters have been proposed;
however, up to now, there are not any theoretical analyses on its behavior rather than numerical simulations. Therefore, in this paper, we analyze the robustness (in the sense of l_2-stability) of the data-selective Volterra normalized least-mean-square (DSVNLMS) algorithm. First, we study the local robustness of this algorithm at any iteration, then we propose a global bound for the error/discrepancy in the coefficient vector. Also, we demonstrate that the DS-VNLMS algorithm improves the parameter estimation for the majority of the iterations that an update is implemented. Moreover, we also prove that if the noise bound is known, then we can set the DS-VNLMS so that it never degrades the estimate. The simulation results corroborate the validity of the executed analysis and demonstrate that the DS-VNLMS algorithm is robust against noise, no matter how its parameters are adopted.
