There was a Bruel & Kjaer application note many years ago describing
exactly how this works, for their real time 1/3 octave audio analyzer.
I thought I had a copy, but I can't find it. Basically, as long as you
have
double the processing power needed to deal with the top band, you have
enough
to do all the lower bands by decimating and interleaving. The other
trick
is to design N filters to cover the top octave, then simply reuse them
after successive decimation to cover all the lower octaves.
