Dick, I was wrong, the cochlea model you and Slaney describe in "On the importance of time - a temporal representation of sound" DOES include half-wave-rectification. My fault was to assume that it was fine to replace in Slaney's Auditory Toolbox examples of pitch estimation the call to the LyonPassiveEar function by a call to the ERBFilterBank function, which does not include HWR. I did not realize that the former included half-wave-rectification. I apologize for the mistake. However, what I said about the equivalence of applying a summary autocorrelation to the output of a orthonormal linear filterbank and applying autocorrelation to the input signal is still true, it just does not apply to your model, because of the HWR.
