SNR estimation for multilevel constellations using higher-order moments
Abstract--The performance of existing moments-based nondata-aided (NDA) estimators of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in digital communication systems substantially degrades with multi...

Joint time synchronization and localization of an unknown node in wireless sensor networks
Abstract--Time synchronization and localization are two important issues in wireless sensor networks. Although these two problems share many aspects in common, they are traditional...

Covariance estimation in decomposable Gaussian graphical models
Graphical models are a framework for representing and exploiting prior conditional independence structures within distributions using graphs. In the Gaussian case, these models are...

Efficient recursive estimators for a linear, time-varying Gaussian model with general constraints
The adaptive estimation of a time-varying parameter vector in a linear Gaussian model is considered where we a priori know that the parameter vector belongs to a known arbitrary s...

Temporal Dynamics for Blind Measurement of Room Acoustical Parameters
In this paper, short- and long-term temporal dynamic information is investigated for the blind measurement of room acoustical parameters. In particular, estimators of room reverber...

Recovery-Based Error Estimators for Interface Problems: Mixed and Nonconforming Finite Elements
Abstract. In [9], we introduced and analyzed a recovery-based a posteriori error estimator for conforming linear finite element approximation to interface problems. It was shown th...

Stochastic Composite Likelihood
Maximum likelihood estimators are often of limited practical use due to the intensive computation they require. We propose a family of alternative estimators that maximize a stoch...

Estimating Heavy-Tail Exponents Through Max Self-Similarity
: In this paper, a novel approach to the problem of estimating the heavy–tail exponent α > 0 of a distribution is proposed. It is based on the fact that block–maxima of siz...

Least Squares Estimation Without Priors or Supervision
Selection of an optimal estimator typically relies on either supervised training samples (pairs of measurements and their associated true values), or a prior probability model for...

Dual divergence estimators and tests: Robustness results
The class of dual φ-divergence estimators (introduced in Broniatowski and Keziou (2009) [6]) is explored with respect to robustness through the influence function approach. For ...
