Robustness in Parameter Estimation
Due to vagueness in the definition of robustness, there has been no natural transition between robust and nonparametric parameter estimators. In this work, qualitative ideas first expressed by Hampel  are extended in ...
This paper is concerned with estimates of an unknown vector parameter S based on observations X. A generalized error autocorrelation matrix with components the error moments of order 2p, is defined. A lower bound for ...
An Algorithm for Optimal Single Linear Feature Extraction from Several Gaussian Pattern Classes
A computational algorithm is presented for the extraction of an optimal single linear feature from several Gaussian pattern classes. The algorithm minimizes the increase in the probability of misclassification in the ...
Nonlinear System Identification Based on a Fock Space Framework
A method is presented for the identification of a nonlinear system represented by an operator V:E->Y, where the input space E is a separable Hilbert space over the field of complex numbers and the output space Y is the ...
Some New Performance Criteria in Robust Statistics-Small Sample Robustness
In this paper the analysis of estimates operating on dependent data is considered. Special dependent data structures are considered and the analysis is made for three different choices of contamination and performance ...
Some Distance Measures and Their Use in Feature Selection
The Bhattacharyya, I-divergence, Vasershtein, variational and Levy distances are evaluated, compared and used for the reduction of n data to one feature. This reduction is obtained through a restricted linear transformation ...

A Mathematical Model of the Vagally Driven SA Nodal Pacemaker
A model is developed for the vagal control of SA nodal activity in the heart and consists essentially of a modified bonhoeffer-Van der Pol (BVP) model of the "free-running" SA node and a lumped model of the neural terminations ...
Study of the Equivalent Electron Drift Field Characteristics in LiNb0<sub>3</sub> by Phase Holography
An analysis of the diffraction efficiency of photorefractive holograms in ferroelectric crystals is shown to provide a novel technique for determining the nature and magnitude of the equivalent electron drift field. For ...
