    The basic theory of Markov chains has been known to mathematicians and engineers for close to 80 years, but it is only in the past decade that it has been applied explicitly to problems in speech processing. One of the major reasons why speech models, based on Markov chains, have not been developed until recently was the lack of a method for optimizing the parameters of the Markov model to match o...

    A vector quantizer is a system for mapping a sequence of continuous or discrete vectors into a digital sequence suitable for communication over or storage in a digital channel. The goal of such a system is data compression: to reduce the bit rate so as to minimize communication channel capacity or digital storage memory requirements while maintaining the necessary fidelity of the data. The mapping... View full abstract»

    High speed signal processing depends critically on parallel processor technology. In most applications, general-purpose parallel computers cannot offer satisfactory real-time processing speed due to severe system overhead. Therefore, for real-time digital signal processing (DSP) systems, special-purpose array processors have become the only appealing alternative. In designing or using such array P...

    Albert Einstein introduces the concepts of the autocorrelation and cross-correlation functions and proves that automatic instruments can be devised for their experimental determination. However, the main point of the paper is that he introduces the concept of a power spectrum (without the use of this term, which - like "correlation function" and "stationary"- do not appear until much later) and el...

    A review of recent developments in radar signal processing in the presence of clutter is presented, with particular reference to an air-traffic environment. Two different signal processing issues are considered. The first issue relates to the adaptive suppression of clutter (of unknown statistics) and consequent enhancement of the echo produced by a moving target (e.g., aircraft). Here, several ad...

    In a computer vision system, we are given one or more digitized images of a scene, and our goal is to construct a description of the scene in terms of known types of objects that appear in it. Thus computer vision deals with digital images, but the techniques it uses are quite different from those used in digital image processing. In this article we describe some of these techniques, and indicate ... View full abstract»

    Set membership (SM) identification refers to a class of techniques for estimating parameters of linear systems or signal models under a priori information that constrains the solutions to certain sets. When data do not help refine these membership sets, the effort of updating the parameter estimates at those points can be avoided.

    Modeling of Physical systems can be decomposed into four subproblems: representation, measurement, estimation, and validation. This paper shows how this decomposition can be applied to the reflection seismology problems of inversion and deconvolution, and that reflection seismology is a very rich field for practitioners of parameter estimation, system identification, and signal processing.

    The author explores Householder transforms and their applications in signal processing. He shows that these transforms can be viewed as mirror-image reflections of a data vector about any desired hyperplane. The virtue of reflections is that they are covariance invariant, that is, they preserve the covariance matrix of the data. One can construct a finite sequence of such reflections that maps a b...
