      Cakareski, Zeljko; Ahmed, Nasir; Dhar, Aditya; Aazhang, Behnaam (2002-05-20)
      This paper addresses the problem of broadcasting video over wireless channels. In such a scenario, different end users perceive the video signal through channels with different quality. We propose a source-channel coding ...

      Frantz, Patrick; Baraniuk, Richard G.; Choi, Hyeokho; Jones, Douglas L. (2004-11-01)
      Due to inherent factors like a small and fragmented market and rapid hardware obsolescence, the conventional textbook is inadequate for DSP laboratory education. Freely available open-content materials that enable and ...

    • Multiple access schemes over multipath fading channels 

      Erkip, Elza; Aazhang, Behnaam (1998-10-20)
      We compare the performance of different accessing schemes for communication over an additive white Gaussian noise multiple access channel with multipath fading. We assume that only the receiver can track the channel ...
    • Multiple Basis Wavelet Denoising using Besov Projections 

      Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G. (1999-10-01)
      Wavelet-based image denoising algorithm depends upon the energy compaction property of wavelet transforms. However, for many real-world images, we cannot expect good energy compaction in a single wavelet domain, because ...
    • Multiple wavelet basis image denoising using Besov ball projections 

      Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2004-09-01)
      We propose a new image denoising algorithm that exploits an image's representation in multiple wavelet domains. Besov balls are convex sets of images whose Besov norms are bounded from above by their radii. Projecting an ...

      Bayram, Metin; Baraniuk, Richard G. (1996-06-01)
      We propose a robust method for estimating the time-varying spectrum of a non-stationary random process. Our approach extends Thomson's powerful multiple window spectrum estimation scheme to the time-frequency and time-scale ...

      Baraniuk, Richard G.; Bayram, Metin (2000-01-20)
      We overview a new non-parametric method for estimating the time-varying spectrum of a non-stationary random process. Our method extends Thomson's powerful multiple window spectrum estimation scheme to the time-frequency ...

      Romberg, Justin; Riedi, Rudolf H.; Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2000-07-01)
      Multiscale processing, in particular using the wavelet transform, has emerged as an incredibly effective paradigm for signal processing and analysis. In this paper, we discuss a close relative of the Haar wavelet transform, ...
    • Multiresolution Intensity Estimation of Piecewise Linear Poisson Processes 

      Willett, Rebecca (2001-04-20)
      Given observations of a one-dimensional piecewise linear, length-M Poisson intensity function, our goal is to estimate both the partition points and the parameters of each segment. In order to determine where the breaks ...

      Willett, Rebecca; Nowak, Robert David (2002-05-20)
      This paper introduces a new multiscale method for nonparametric piecewise polynomial intensity and density estimation of point processes. Fast, piecewise polynomial, maximum penalized likelihood methods for intensity and ...
    • Multiscale Analysis for Intensity and Density Estimation 

      Willett, Rebecca (2002-04-20)
      The nonparametric multiscale polynomial and platelet algorithms presented in this thesis are powerful new tools for signal and image denoising and reconstruction. Unlike traditional wavelet-based multiscale methods, these ...

      Jansen, Maarten; Baraniuk, Richard G.; Lavu, Sridhar (2005-07-01)
      Multiresolution triangulation meshes are widely used in computer graphics for representing three-dimensional(3-d) shapes. We propose to use these tools to represent 2-d piecewise smooth functions such as grayscale ...
