Mathematical models of natural signals have long been of interest in the scientic community. A primary example is the Fourier model, which was introduced to explain the properties of blackbody radiation and has since found countless applications. In this thesis, a variety of parametric models that are tailored for representing audio signals are discussed. These modeling approaches provide compact representations that are useful for signal analysis, compression, enhancement, and modication; compaction is achieved in a given model by constructing the model in a signal-adaptive fashion.
