  1. 1. Towards Asymptotic Vector Quantization

    Author : Jonas Samuelsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : EM algorithm; parametric models; expectation maximization; spectrum coding; Gaussian mixture models; fast search; bounded support; multidimensional companding; vector quantization; high rate quantization;

    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

    Author : Thomas B. Schön; Fredrik Gustafsson; Simon Godsill; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Nonlinear estimation; system identification; Kalman filter; particle filter; marginalized particle filter; expectation maximization; automotive applications; Automatic control; 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

    Author : Ikram Ullah; Jens Lagergren; Arndt von Haeseler; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; 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

    Author : Erik Pettersson; Joakim Lundeberg; Afshin Ahmadian; Ann-Christine Syvänen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; genotyping; multiplex amplification; trinucleotide threading; single nucleotide polymorphism; genotype calling; Expectation-Maximization; protein-epitope signature tag; expression profiling; Human Protein Atlas; pooled genomic DNA; Pyrosequencing; 454; allelotyping; association studies; bioinformatics; Bioengineering; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : Advancements in the field of biotechnology are expanding the scientific horizon and a promising era is envisioned with personalized medicine for improved health. The amount of genetic data is growing at an ever-escalating pace due to the availability of novel technologies that allow massively parallel sequencing and whole-genome genotyping, that are supported by the advancements in computer science and information technologies.

  5. 5. Variational Inference of Dynamic Factor Models

    Author : Erik Spånberg; Pär Stockhammar; Gebrenegus Ghilagaber; Sune Karlsson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; dynamic factor models; variational inference; missing data; nowcasting; expectation maximization; statistik; Statistics;

    Abstract : When we make difficult and crucial decisions, forecasts are powerful and important tools. For that purpose, statistical models can be our most effective aid. Ideally, these models can incorporate large sets of multifaceted data. READ MORE
