Statistical Distances and Their Applications to Biophysical Parameter Estimation: Information Measures, M-Estimates, and Minimum Contrast Methods

Ganna Leonenko, Sietse Los, Peter North
2013 Remote Sensing  
We found that, for the conditions investigated, Least Square Estimation (LSE) is not an optimal statistical distance for the estimation of biophysical parameters.  ...  Our results indicate that other statistical distances, such as the two power measures, Hellinger, Pearson chi-squared measure, Arimoto and Koenker-Basset distances result in better estimates of biophysical  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Ana Prieto for advice and provision of LUT code.

Flooding attacks detection in traffic of backbone networks

Osman Salem, Ali Makke, Jean Tajer, Ahmed Mehaoua
2011 2011 IEEE 36th Conference on Local Computer Networks  
The proposed detection scheme is based on the application of Least Mean Square (LMS) filter and Pearson Chi-square divergence on randomly aggregated flows in Sketch data structure.  ...  Least mean square filter is used to predict the next value of the time series based on previous values, and Pearson Chisquare divergence is used to measure the deviations between the current and estimated  ...  As we want to compare the efficiency of Chi-square divergence with widely used divergence measures, we implement 3 distance measures over Sketch: Chi-square Divergence [29] , Hellinger Distance (HD [  ...

Any symmetric function of canonical correlation coefficient can be used as a test statistic for testing independence.  ...  Most of the resulting test statistics lead to the chi-square test of Pearson. The third part deals with the problem of independence and correlation.  ... 

Kriging meta-model assisted calibration of computational fluid dynamics models

Olumayowa T. Kajero, Rex B. Thorpe, Tao Chen, Bo Wang, Yuan Yao
2016 AIChE Journal  
A new EI measure was developed for the sum of squared errors (SSE) which conforms to a generalised chi-square distribution and hence existing normal distribution-based EI measures are not applicable.  ...  However, computation has become a bottleneck when calibration of CFD models with experimental data (also known as model parameter estimation) is needed.  ...  must be estimated so the predictor becomes non-linear. 45 As such, the SSE conforms to a generalised chi-square distribution. 69 This can be seen as follows.  ...

Recognition of Partially Occluded Elliptical Objects using Symmetry on Contour [chapter]

June-Suh Cho, Joonsoo Choi
2007 Vision Systems: Segmentation and Pattern Recognition  
For each test object, we varied the visible object portion from 20% to 100% and recorded the recognition results using Chi-square divergence and a proposed method.  ...  The results show that a proposed method clearly obtains better results than Chi-square divergence. Using only 60% of the object area, almost 80% of the objects are still recognized.  ...  This chapter is distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike-3.0 License, which permits use, distribution and reproduction for non-commercial purposes, provided  ...
