Wavelet estimation for point processes

Youssef Taleb, Edward Cohen, Andrew Walden, Engineering And Physical Sciences Research Council
Wavelet theory constitutes one of the most significant mathematical advances for signal processing, and thus presents a great interest in point process analysis.  ...  For instance, numerous approaches have been explored to estimate the first-order intensity of a point process with wavelets.  ...  used to make inference about the mean behavior of the random field characterizing a Cox process.  ...

Content-Based Image Retrieval Using Self-Organizing Maps [chapter]

Jorma Laaksonen, Markus Koskela, Erkki Oja
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
As a result, the amount of data in visual form is increasing and there is a strong need for effective ways to manage and process it.  ...  In many settings, the existing and widely adopted methods for text-based indexing and information retrieval are inadequate for these new purposes.  ...  Song et al. (2001) presented a multiresolution comparison method for histograms which can remove candidate histograms whose lower bound is larger than the current minimum distance.  ...

Evaluating Track Stiffness and Rail Bending Moments using Vertical Track Deflection Measurements Considering the Effects of Track Geometry

Ngoan T Do
Although it is known that track stiffness parameters can potentially provide useful information for track condition assessment, there is a lack of understanding of factors affecting the track stiffness  ...  For this reason, attempts to establish an automatic framework for track condition assessment using a track stiffness measurement system are limited.  ...  As can be seen, all critical points including the lower and upper bounds in the bending moments are effectively captured.  ...

Deterministic Soliton Graphs Expected Case for Projecting Points

Anton Železnikar, Andrej Brodnik, Miklós Bartha, Miklós Krész, Sergio Cabello, Matt Devos, Bojan Mohar
2006 Informatica   unpublished
Soliton graphs are studied in the context of a reduction procedure that simplifies the structure of graphs without affecting the deterministic property of the corresponding automata.  ...  Based on this result, a general characterization is given for deterministic soliton graphs using chestnut graphs, generalized trees, and graphs having a unique perfect matching.  ...  Quellhorst, Jr. for critical reading of the manuscript.
