      Early identification of pathogens is essential for limiting development of therapy-resistant pathogens and mitigating infectious disease outbreaks. Most bacterial detection schemes use target-specific probes to differentiate ...
    • Unsupervised SAR Image Segmentation using Recursive Partitioning 

      Baraniuk, Richard G. (2000-04-01)
      We present a new approach to SAR image segmentation based on a Poisson approximation to the SAR amplitude image. It has been established that SAR amplitude images are well approximated using Rayleigh distributions. We show ...
