    Distributed time delay models are extended to deal with loss of entities from within the process being modeled. Analysis of a time-invariant distributed delay shows that the statistics of individual transit times through a delay process can be very sensitive to attrition incurred during the delay.

    The aim of this paper is to outline a model of the eye-head system and some of its control strategies. To formulate such a model, the eye-head system was stimulated with random or periodic visual targets. Coupling between the eye and head motor commands was evident in the experiments performed, and this was also found to be the case for acoustic and tactile stimuli. Further experiments were perfor...

  • Nonparametric Bayes Risk Estimation for Pattern Classification

    The performance of a pattern classification system is often evaluated based on the risk committed by the classification procedure. The minimum attainable risk is the Bayes risk. Therefore, the Bayes risk can be used as a measure of the intrinsic complexity of the system, and it also serves as a reference of the optimality measure of a classification procedure. There are many practical situations i... View full abstract»

    An aspect of the measurement selection problem¿the existence of anomalous orderings on the probability of error obtained by selected subsets of measurements¿is discussed. It is shown that for any ordering on the probability of error as a function of the subset of measurements (subject to an obvious set monotonicity condition), there exists a multivariate normal two-hypothesis problem N(¿,K) ver...

    A solution is given to the linear discrimination problem for more than two statistical classes, using a generalized Fisher criterion as the distance measure. Essentially, we find the direction X on which the projections of k > 2 statistical hypotheses make the generalized Fisher criterion maximum. Since the latter depends mainly on the minimum pairwise projected mean difference, the optimal projec... View full abstract»

    A graphical scheme (map) for representation and manipulation of fuzzy switching functions is described. Properties of the map and relationships between represented implicants are discussed. Emphasis is placed on illustrations of the use of the map in manipulation and minimization of fuzzy switching functions. View full abstract»
