  1. 1. Towards Asymptotic Vector Quantization

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Jonas Samuelsson; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Elektroteknik; elektronik och fotonik; Electrical engineering; electronics and photonics; Informationsteknik; Information technology; high rate quantization; vector quantization; multidimensional companding; fast search; parametric models; Gaussian mixture models; expectation maximization; EM algorithm; bounded support; spectrum coding;

    Abstract : We study topics in source coding, and vector quantization (VQ) in particular. We approach VQ from two directions: a theoretical starting point based on high rate quantization theory, and a practical based on a database desription of the signal source. READ MORE

  2. 2. Estimation of Nonlinear Dynamic Systems Theory and Applications

    University dissertation from Institutionen för systemteknik

    Author : Thomas B. Schön; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Nonlinear estimation; system identification; Kalman filter; particle filter; marginalized particle filter; expectation maximization; automotive applications; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Automatic control; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with estimation of states and parameters in nonlinear and non-Gaussian dynamic systems. Sequential Monte Carlo methods are mainly used to this end. These methods rely on models of the underlying system, motivating some developments of the model concept. READ MORE

  3. 3. Probabilistic Models for Species Tree Inference and Orthology Analysis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ikram Ullah; KTH.; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; phylogenetics; phylogenomics; gene tree; species tree; expectation maximization; mixture model; dynamic programming; markov chain monte carlo; PrIME; JPrIME; Datalogi; Computer Science;

    Abstract : A phylogenetic tree is used to model gene evolution and species evolution using molecular sequence data. For artifactual and biological reasons, a gene tree may differ from a species tree, a phenomenon known as gene tree-species tree incongruence. Assuming the presence of one or more evolutionary events, e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Interrogation of Nucleic Acids by Parallel Threading
