    Tight wavelet frames and orthonormal wavelet bases with a general dilation matrix have applications in many areas. In this paper, for any d×d dilation matrix M, we demonstrate in a constructive way that we can construct compactly supported tight M-wavelet frames and orthonormal M-wavelet bases in of exponential decay, which are derived from compactly supported M-refinable functions, such that they can have both arbitrarily high smoothness and any preassigned order of vanishing moments. This paper improves several results in Battle (Comm. Math. Phys. 110 (1987) 601), Bownik (J. Fourier Anal. Appl. 7(2001) 489), Gröchenig and Ron (Proc. Amer. Math. Soc. 126 (1998) 1101), Lemarie (J.

    A Haar wavelet operational matrix method (HWOMM) was derived to solve the Riccati differential equations. As a result, the computation of the nonlinear term was simplified by using the Block pulse function to expand the Haar wavelet one. The proposed method can be used to solve not only the classical Riccati differential equations but also the fractional ones. The capability and the simplicity of the proposed method was demonstrated by some examples and comparison with other methods.

    A time-series similarity measurement method based on wavelet and matrix transform was proposed, and its anti-noise ability, sensitivity and accuracy were discussed. The time-series sequences were compressed into wavelet subspace, and sample feature vector and orthogonal basics of sample time-series sequences were obtained by K-L transform. Then the inner product transform was carried out to project analyzed time-series sequence into orthogonal basics to gain analyzed feature vectors. The similarity was calculated between sample feature vector and analyzed feature vector by the Euclid distance. Taking fault wave of power electronic devices for example, the experimental results show that the proposed method has low dimension of feature vector, the anti-noise ability of proposed method is 30 times as large as that of plain wavelet method, the sensitivity of proposed method is 1/3 as large as that of plain wavelet method, and the accuracy of proposed method is higher than that of the wavelet singular value decomposition method. The proposed method can be applied in similarity matching and indexing for lager time series databases.

    Cell-cell and cell-matrix signaling and communication between adhesion sites involve mechanisms which are required for cellular functions during normal development and homeostasis; however these cellular functions and mechanisms are often deregulated in cancer. Aberrant signaling at cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesion sites often involves downstream mediators including Rho GTPases and tyrosine kinases. This review discusses these molecules as putative mediators of cellular crosstalk between cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesion sites, in addition to their attractiveness as therapeutic targets in cancer. Interestingly, inter-junctional crosstalk mechanisms are frequently typified by the way in which bacterial and viral pathogens opportunistically infect or intoxicate mammalian cells. This review therefore also discusses the concept of learning from pathogen-host interaction studies to better understand coordinated communication between cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesion sites, in addition to highlighting the potential therapeutic usefulness of exploiting pathogens or their products to tap into inter-junctional crosstalk. Taken together, we feel that increased knowledge around mechanisms of cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesion site crosstalk and consequently a greater understanding of their therapeutic targeting offers a unique opportunity to contribute to the emerging molecular revolution in cancer biology.

    The spatial modes of a 1 km elliptical core few-mode optical fiber (6 spatial modes) are analyzed by using liquid crystal on silicon spatial light modulators to measure the fiber's mode crosstalk matrix in Hermite-Gaussian, Laguerre-Gaussian, and linearly polarized spatial mode bases. It is shown that the fiber's spatial modes can be described by Hermite-Gaussian modes, which can propagate 1 km over the optical fiber with <-20  dB (1%) average mode crosstalk even when the fiber has multiple 1 cm diameter bends. The use of elliptical core few-mode optical fibers for space division multiplexing in data centers is discussed.

    Fractional order systems can be more adequate for the description of dynamical systems than integer order models, however, how to obtain fractional order models are still actively exploring. In this paper, an identification method for fractional order linear system was proposed. This is a method based on input-output data in time domain. The input and output signals are represented by Haar wavelet, and then fractional order systems described by fractional order differential equations are transformed into fractional order integral equations. Taking use of the Haar wavelet operational matrix of the fractional order integration, the fractional order linear system can easily be converted into a system of algebraic equation. Finally, the parameters of the fractional order system are determined by minimizing the errors between the output of the real system and that of the identified system. Numerical simulations, involving integral and fractional order systems, confirm the efficiency of the above methodology.

    Many problems in image representation and classification involve some form of dimensionality reduction. Non-negative matrix factorization (NMF) is a recently proposed unsupervised procedure for learning spatially localized, parts-based subspace representation of objects. An improvement of the classical NMF by combining with Log-Gabor wavelets to enhance its part-based learning ability is presented. The new method with principal component analysis (PCA) and locally linear embedding (LLE) proposed recently in Science are compared. Finally, the new method to several real world datasets and achieve good performance in representation and classification is applied.

    pixels and identically gridded YSO crystal matrices. We began the study with the energy and crosstalk calibrations of the detector, then we constructed a GEANT4 simulation with the customized metallic film model as the MAPMT photocathode. The simulation reproduced more than 70% of the crosstalk...... and explained it as a consequence of the total reflection produced by the photocathode. The result indicated that the crosstalk mechanism could be a common case in most of the contact-assembled scintillation detectors. The concept of the Inverted-Conical light guide was to suppress the total reflection...... by contracting the incident angle of the scintillation. We optimized the design in the simulation and fabricated a test sample. The test sample reduced 52% crosstalk with a loss of 6% signal yield. The idea of the Inverted-Conical light guide can be adapted by scintillation detectors multi-pixel, imaging...

  17. Determination of micro yttrium in an ytterbium matrix by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry and wavelet transform

    2005-01-01

    In the determination of trace yttrium (Y) in an ytterbium (Yb) matrix by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES), the most prominent line of yttrium, Y 371.030 nm line, suffers from strong interference due to an emission line of ytterbium. In this work, a method based on wavelet transform was proposed for the spectral interference correction. Haar wavelet was selected as the mother wavelet. The discrete detail after the third decomposition, D3,was chosen for quantitative analysis based on the consideration of both separation degree and peak height. The linear correlation coefficient between the height of the left positive peak in D3 and the concentration of Y was calculated to be 0.9926.Six synthetic samples were analyzed, and the recovery for yttrium varied from 96.3% to 110.0%. The amounts of yttrium in three ytterbium metal samples were determined by the proposed approach with an average relative standard deviation (RSD)of 2.5%, and the detection limit for yttrium was 0.016%. This novel correction technique is fast and convenient, since neither complicated model assumption nor time-consuming iteration is required. Furthermore, it is not affected by the wavelength drift inherent in monochromators that will severely reduce the accuracy of results obtained by some chemometric methods.

    Full Text Available Accurate reconstruction of 3D photoacoustic (PA images requires detection of photoacoustic signals from many angles. Several groups have adopted staring ultrasound arrays, but assessment of array performance has been limited. We previously reported on a method to calibrate a 3D PA tomography (PAT staring array system and analyze system performance using singular value decomposition (SVD. The developed SVD metric, however, was impractical for large system matrices, which are typical of 3D PAT problems. The present study consisted of two main objectives. The first objective aimed to introduce the crosstalk matrix concept to the field of PAT for system design. Figures-of-merit utilized in this study were root mean square error, peak signal-to-noise ratio, mean absolute error, and a three dimensional structural similarity index, which were derived between the normalized spatial crosstalk matrix and the identity matrix. The applicability of this approach for 3D PAT was validated by observing the response of the figures-of-merit in relation to well-understood PAT sampling characteristics (i.e. spatial and temporal sampling rate. The second objective aimed to utilize the figures-of-merit to characterize and improve the performance of a near-spherical staring array design. Transducer arrangement, array radius, and array angular coverage were the design parameters examined. We observed that the performance of a 129-element staring transducer array for 3D PAT could be improved by selection of optimal values of the design parameters. The results suggested that this formulation could be used to objectively characterize 3D PAT system performance and would enable the development of efficient strategies for system design optimization.

  1. RAGE and TGF-β1 Cross-Talk Regulate Extracellular Matrix Turnover and Cytokine Synthesis in AGEs Exposed Fibroblast Cells.

    Full Text Available AGEs accumulation in the skin affects extracellular matrix (ECM turnover and triggers diabetes associated skin conditions and accelerated skin aging. The receptor of AGEs (RAGE has an essential contribution to cellular dysfunction driven by chronic inflammatory responses while TGF-β1 is critical in both dermal homeostasis and inflammation. We investigated the contribution of RAGE and TGF-β1 to the modulation of inflammatory response and ECM turnover in AGEs milieu, using a normal fibroblast cell line. RAGE, TGF-β1, collagen I and III gene and protein expression were upregulated after exposure to AGEs-BSA, and MMP-2 was activated. AGEs-RAGE was pivotal in NF-κB dependent collagen I expression and joined with TGF-β1 to stimulate collagen III expression, probably via ERK1/2 signaling. AGEs-RAGE axis induced upregulation of TGF-β1, TNF-α and IL-8 cytokines. TNF-α and IL-8 were subjected to TGF-β1 negative regulation. RAGE's proinflammatory signaling also antagonized AGEs-TGF-β1 induced fibroblast contraction, suggesting the existence of an inhibitory cross-talk mechanism between TGF-β1 and RAGE signaling. RAGE and TGF-β1 stimulated anti-inflammatory cytokines IL-2 and IL-4 expression. GM-CSF and IL-6 expression appeared to be dependent only on TGF-β1 signaling. Our data also indicated that IFN-γ upregulated in AGEs-BSA milieu in a RAGE and TGF-β1 independent mechanism. Our findings raise the possibility that RAGE and TGF-β1 are both involved in fibrosis development in a complex cross-talk mechanism, while also acting on their own individual targets. This study contributes to the understanding of impaired wound healing associated with diabetes complications.

    This book presents a systematic study of multivariate wavelet frames with matrix dilation, in particular, orthogonal and bi-orthogonal bases, which are a special case of frames. Further, it provides algorithmic methods for the construction of dual and tight wavelet frames with a desirable approximation order, namely compactly supported wavelet frames, which are commonly required by engineers. It particularly focuses on methods of constructing them. Wavelet bases and frames are actively used in numerous applications such as audio and graphic signal processing, compression and transmission of information. They are especially useful in image recovery from incomplete observed data due to the redundancy of frame systems. The construction of multivariate wavelet frames, especially bases, with desirable properties remains a challenging problem as although a general scheme of construction is well known, its practical implementation in the multidimensional setting is difficult. Another important feature of wavelet is ...

  9. A Mellin transform approach to wavelet analysis

    Science.gov (United States)

    Alotta, Gioacchino; Di Paola, Mario; Failla, Giuseppe

    2015-11-01

    The paper proposes a fractional calculus approach to continuous wavelet analysis. Upon introducing a Mellin transform expression of the mother wavelet, it is shown that the wavelet transform of an arbitrary function f(t) can be given a fractional representation involving a suitable number of Riesz integrals of f(t), and corresponding fractional moments of the mother wavelet. This result serves as a basis for an original approach to wavelet analysis of linear systems under arbitrary excitations. In particular, using the proposed fractional representation for the wavelet transform of the excitation, it is found that the wavelet transform of the response can readily be computed by a Mellin transform expression, with fractional moments obtained from a set of algebraic equations whose coefficient matrix applies for any scale a of the wavelet transform. Robustness and computationally efficiency of the proposed approach are shown in the paper.

    1995-01-01

    Since the study of wavelets is a relatively new area, much of the research coming from mathematicians, most of the literature uses terminology, concepts and proofs that may, at times, be difficult and intimidating for the engineer. Wavelet Basics has therefore been written as an introductory book for scientists and engineers. The mathematical presentation has been kept simple, the concepts being presented in elaborate detail in a terminology that engineers will find familiar. Difficult ideas are illustrated with examples which will also aid in the development of an intuitive insight. Chapter 1 reviews the basics of signal transformation and discusses the concepts of duals and frames. Chapter 2 introduces the wavelet transform, contrasts it with the short-time Fourier transform and clarifies the names of the different types of wavelet transforms. Chapter 3 links multiresolution analysis, orthonormal wavelets and the design of digital filters. Chapter 4 gives a tour d'horizon of topics of current interest: wave...

    Chaos is a class of ubiquitous phenomena and controlling chaos is of great interest and importance. In this Letter, we introduce wavelet controlled dynamics as a new paradigm of dynamical control. We find that by modifying a tiny fraction of the wavelet subspaces of a coupling matrix, we could dramatically enhance the transverse stability of the synchronous manifold of a chaotic system. Wavelet controlled Hopf bifurcation from chaos is observed. Our approach provides a robust strategy for controlling chaos and other dynamical systems in nature.

    2008-01-01

    By interacting and synchronizing wavelet theory in mathematics and variational principle in finite element method, a class of wavelet-based plate element is constructed. In the construction of wavelet-based plate element, the element displacement field represented by the coefficients of wavelet expansions in wavelet space is transformed into the physical degree of freedoms in finite element space via the corresponding two-dimensional C1 type transformation matrix. Then, based on the associated generalized function of potential energy of thin plate bending and vibration problems, the scaling functions of B-spline wavelet on the interval (BSWI) at different scale are employed directly to form the multi-scale finite element approximation basis so as to construct BSWI plate element via variational principle. BSWI plate element combines the accuracy of B-spline functions approximation and various wavelet-based elements for structural analysis. Some static and dynamic numerical examples are studied to demonstrate the performances of the present element.

As for 4-channel tight frame wavelet filter, the tight frame transforms' ma-trix is 2×4, but the lifting scheme transforms' matrix must be 4×4. And in the case of 3-channel tight frame wavelet filter, the transforms' matrix is 2×3, but the lifting scheme transforms' matrix must be 3×3. In order to solve this problem, we intro-duce two concepts: transferred polyphase matrix for 4-channel filters and trans-ferred unitary matrix for 3-channel filters. The transferred polyphase matrix is sym-metric/antisymmetric. Thus, we use this advantage to realize the lifting scheme.

    The Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) decomposes an image into bands that vary in spatial frequency and orientation. It is widely used for image compression. Measures of the visibility of DWT quantization errors are required to achieve optimal compression. Uniform quantization of a single band of coefficients results in an artifact that is the sum of a lattice of random amplitude basis functions of the corresponding DWT synthesis filter, which we call DWT uniform quantization noise. We measured visual detection thresholds for samples of DWT uniform quantization noise in Y, Cb, and Cr color channels. The spatial frequency of a wavelet is r 2(exp -1), where r is display visual resolution in pixels/degree, and L is the wavelet level. Amplitude thresholds increase rapidly with spatial frequency. Thresholds also increase from Y to Cr to Cb, and with orientation from low-pass to horizontal/vertical to diagonal. We propose a mathematical model for DWT noise detection thresholds that is a function of level, orientation, and display visual resolution. This allows calculation of a 'perceptually lossless' quantization matrix for which all errors are in theory below the visual threshold. The model may also be used as the basis for adaptive quantization schemes.

    Wavelets and wavelet packets have recently emerged as powerful tools for signal compression. Wavelet and wavelet packet-based compression algorithms based on embedded zerotree wavelet (EZW) coding are developed for electrocardiogram (ECG) signals, and eight different wavelets are evaluated for their ability to compress Holter ECG data. Pilot data from a blind evaluation of compressed ECG's by cardiologists suggest that the clinically useful information present in original ECG signals is preserved by 8:1 compression, and in most cases 16:1 compressed ECG's are clinically useful.

    The single 2 dilation orthogonal wavelet multipliers in one dimensional case and single A-dilation (where A is any expansive matrix with integer entries and|detA|=2) wavelet multipliers in high dimensional case were completely characterized by the Wutam Consortium (1998) and Z. Y. Li, et al. (2010). But there exist no more results on orthogonal multivariate wavelet matrix multipliers corresponding integer expansive dilation matrix with the absolute value of determinant not 2 in L2(R2). In this paper, we choose as the dilation matrix and consider the 2I2-dilation orthogonal multivariate wavelet Y={y1,y2,y3}, (which is called a dyadic bivariate wavelet) multipliers. We call the 3×3 matrix-valued function A(s)=[ fi,j(s)]3×3, where fi,j are measurable functions, a dyadic bivariate matrix Fourier wavelet multiplier if the inverse Fourier transform of A(s)(cy1(s),cy2(s),cy3(s))⊤ = ( b g1(s), b g2(s), b g3(s))⊤ is a dyadic bivariate wavelet whenever (y1,y2,y3) is any dyadic bivariate wavelet. We give some conditions for dyadic matrix bivariate wavelet multipliers. The results extended that of Z. Y. Li and X. L. Shi (2011). As an application, we construct some useful dyadic bivariate wavelets by using dyadic Fourier matrix wavelet multipliers and use them to image denoising.

    Full Text Available Wavelet solution techniques have become the focus of interest among researchers in different disciplines of science and technology. In this paper, implementation of two different wavelet basis functions has been comparatively considered for dynamic analysis of structures. For this aim, computational technique is developed by using free scale of simple Haar wavelet, initially. Later, complex and continuous Chebyshev wavelet basis functions are presented to improve the time history analysis of structures. Free-scaled Chebyshev coefficient matrix and operation of integration are derived to directly approximate displacements of the corresponding system. In addition, stability of responses has been investigated for the proposed algorithm of discrete Haar wavelet compared against continuous Chebyshev wavelet. To demonstrate the validity of the wavelet-based algorithms, aforesaid schemes have been extended to the linear and nonlinear structural dynamics. The effectiveness of free-scaled Chebyshev wavelet has been compared with simple Haar wavelet and two common integration methods. It is deduced that either indirect method proposed for discrete Haar wavelet or direct approach for continuous Chebyshev wavelet is unconditionally stable. Finally, it is concluded that numerical solution is highly benefited by the least computation time involved and high accuracy of response, particularly using low scale of complex Chebyshev wavelet.

    A structure based on the Wavelet neural networks (WNNs) is proposed for nonlinear channel equalization in a digital communication system. The construction algorithm of the Minimum error probability (MEP) is presented and applied as a performance criterion to update the parameter matrix of wavelet networks. Our experimental results show that performance of the proposed wavelet networks based on equalizer can significantly improve the neural modeling accuracy, perform quite well in compensating the nonlinear distortion introduced by the channel, and outperform the conventional neural networks in signal to noise ratio and channel non-llnearity.

    Stereoscopic displays provide viewers with a truly fascinating viewing experience. However, current stereoscopic displays suffer from crosstalk that is detrimental to image quality, depth quality, and visual comfort. In order to reduce the perceived crosstalk in stereoscopic displays, this paper proposes a crosstalk reduction method that combines disparity adjustment and crosstalk cancellation. The main idea of the proposed method is to displace the visible crosstalk using the disparity adjustment in a way that less amounts of intensity leakage occur on perceptually important regions in a scene. To this purpose, we estimate a crosstalk visibility index map for the scene that represents pixel-by-pixel importance values associated with the amount of perceived crosstalk and negative-after-effects of the crosstalk cancellation. Based on the crosstalk visibility index, we introduce a new disparity adjustment method that reduces the annoying crosstalk in processed images, which is followed by the crosstalk cancellation. The effectiveness of the proposed method has been successfully evaluated by subjective assessments of image quality and viewing preference. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method effectively improves the image quality and overall viewing quality of stereoscopic videos.

    The construction of frame wavelets with compact supports is a meaningful problem in wavelet analysis. In particular, it is a hard work to construct the frame wavelets with explicit analytic forms. For a given n×n real expansive matrix A, the frame-sets with respect to A are a family of sets in Rn. Based on the frame-sets, a class of high-dimensional frame wavelets with analytic forms are constructed, which can be non-bandlimited, or even compactly supported. As an application, the construction is illustrated by several examples, in which some new frame wavelets with compact supports are constructed. Moreover, since the main result of this paper is about general dilation matrices, in the examples we present a family of frame wavelets associated with some non-integer dilation matrices that is meaningful in computational geometry

    With the main purpose of improving the embedding capacity and concealment, using Human Auditory System (HAS) masking properties, an audio steganography algorithm based on lifting wavelet transform and matrix coding to embed secret information was proposed. MPEG I audio psychoacoustic model 1 was used to control embedding frames, middle and low frequency coefficients of lifting wavelet transform was choosen to host audio signal, and matrix coding which could improve embedding efficiency and decrease modified proportion was exploited to realize the secret information hiding. The simulation experimental results show that the algorithm not only has excellent concealment and embedding capacity, but also good robustness against noise addition, low pass filtering, resampling, MP3 compression and synchronization attack. Meanwhile, the method can realize blind extraction.%以提高隐秘信息嵌入量与隐蔽性为主要目的,利用人耳听觉系统(HAS)的掩蔽效应,提出一种结合提升小波变换和矩阵编码的嵌入隐秘信息的音频隐写算法.该算法利用MPEG I心理声学模型1来控制嵌入帧,选用宿主音频提升小波变换的中低频系数,利用能够大幅提高嵌入效率、减小修改比例的矩阵编码来实现隐秘信息的嵌入.经实验仿真证明,该算法不仅具有很好的隐蔽性和嵌入容量,还兼顾了鲁棒性,对于加噪、滤波、重采样、MP3压缩、同步攻击等常见操作具有较强的抵抗力.同时,该算法能够实现盲检测.

    1995-11-01

    In this paper, we use the biorthogonal wavelets recently constructed by Dahlke and Weinreich to implement a highly efficient procedure for solving a certain class of one-dimensional problems, (∂21/∂x21)u = f,I ɛ Z, I > 0. For these problems, the discrete biorthogonal wavelet transform allows us to set up a system of wavelet-Galerkin equations in which the scales are uncoupled, so that a true multiscale solution procedure may be formulated. We prove that the resulting stiffness matrix is in fact an almost perfectly diagonal matrix (the original aim of the construction was to achieve a block diagonal structure) and we show that this leads to an algorithm whose cost is O(n). We also present numerical results which demonstrate that the multiscale biorthogonal wavelet algorithm is superior to the more conventional single scale orthogonal wavelet approach both in terms of speed and in terms of convergence.

    1997-01-01

    Physicists and mathematicians are intensely studying fractal sets of fractal curves. Mandelbrot advocated modeling of real-life signals by fractal or multifractal functions. One example is fractional Brownian motion, where large-scale behavior is related to a corresponding infrared divergence. Self-similarities and scaling laws play a key role in this new area. There is a widely accepted belief that wavelet analysis should provide the best available tool to unveil such scaling laws. And orthonormal wavelet bases are the only existing bases which are structurally invariant through dyadic dilations. This book discusses the relevance of wavelet analysis to problems in which self-similarities are important. Among the conclusions drawn are the following: 1) A weak form of self-similarity can be given a simple characterization through size estimates on wavelet coefficients, and 2) Wavelet bases can be tuned in order to provide a sharper characterization of this self-similarity. A pioneer of the wavelet "saga", Meye...

    Electromagnetic wavelets are constructed using scalar wavelets as superpotentials, together with an appropriate polarization. It is shown that oblate spheroidal antennas, which are ideal for their production and reception, can be made by deforming and merging two branch cuts. This determines a unique field on the interior of the spheroid which gives the boundary conditions for the surface charge-current density necessary to radiate the wavelets. These sources are computed, including the impulse response of the antenna.

    In this paper,we propose the so-called continuous Fresnel-wavelet combinatorial transform which means that the mother wavelet undergoes the Fresnel transformation.This motivation can let the mother-wavelet-state itself vary from |ψ〉 to Fr,s(+)|ψ),except for variation within the family of dilations and translations.The Parseval's equality,admissibility condition and inverse transform of this continuous Fresnel-wavelet combinatorial transform are analysed.By taking certain parameters and using the admissibility condition of this continuous Fresnel-wavelet combinatorial transform,we obtain some mother wavelets.A comparison between the newly found mother wavelets is presented.

    2014-06-24

    Estimating impedance of energy storage devices includes generating input signals at various frequencies with a frequency step factor therebetween. An excitation time record (ETR) is generated to include a summation of the input signals and a deviation matrix of coefficients is generated relative to the excitation time record to determine crosstalk between the input signals. An energy storage device is stimulated with the ETR and simultaneously a response time record (RTR) is captured that is indicative of a response of the energy storage device to the ETR. The deviation matrix is applied to the RTR to determine an in-phase component and a quadrature component of an impedance of the energy storage device at each of the different frequencies with the crosstalk between the input signals substantially removed. This approach enables rapid impedance spectra measurements that can be completed within one period of the lowest frequency or less.

  1. Partial Crosstalk Cancellation for Upstream VDSL

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Raphael Cendrillon

    2004-09-01

    Full Text Available Crosstalk is a major problem in modern DSL systems such as VDSL. Many crosstalk cancellation techniques have been proposed to help mitigate crosstalk, but whilst they lead to impressive performance gains, their complexity grows with the square of the number of lines within a binder. In binder groups which can carry up to hundreds of lines, this complexity is outside the scope of current implementation. In this paper, we investigate partial crosstalk cancellation for upstream VDSL. The majority of the detrimental effects of crosstalk are typically limited to a small subset of lines and tones. Furthermore, significant crosstalk is often only seen from neighbouring pairs within the binder configuration. We present a number of algorithms which exploit these properties to reduce the complexity of crosstalk cancellation. These algorithms are shown to achieve the majority of the performance gains of full crosstalk cancellation with significantly reduced run-time complexity.

    Full Text Available A B-spline wavelet on interval (BSWI finite element is developed for curved beams, and the static and free vibration behaviors of curved beam (arch are investigated in this paper. Instead of the traditional polynomial interpolation, scaling functions at a certain scale have been adopted to form the shape functions and construct wavelet-based elements. Different from the process of the direct wavelet addition in the other wavelet numerical methods, the element displacement field represented by the coefficients of wavelets expansions is transformed from wavelet space to physical space by aid of the corresponding transformation matrix. Furthermore, compared with the commonly used Daubechies wavelet, BSWI has explicit expressions and excellent approximation properties, which guarantee satisfactory results. Numerical examples are performed to demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency with respect to previously published formulations for curved beams.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available Interval wavelet numerical method for nonlinear PDEs can improve the calculation precision compared with the common wavelet. A new interval Shannon wavelet is constructed with the general variational principle. Compared with the existing interval wavelet, both the gradient and the smoothness near the boundary of the approximated function are taken into account. Using the new interval Shannon wavelet, a multiscale interpolation wavelet operator was constructed in this paper, which can transform the nonlinear partial differential equations into matrix differential equations; this can be solved by the coupling technique of the wavelet precise integration method (WPIM and the variational iteration method (VIM. At last, the famous Black-Scholes model is taken as an example to test this new method. The numerical results show that this method can decrease the boundary effect greatly and improve the numerical precision in the whole definition domain compared with Yan’s method.

    In the present work a wavelets approximation method is employed to solve fuzzy boundary value differential equations (FBVDEs). Essentially, a truncated Legendre wavelets series together with the Legendre wavelets operational matrix of derivative are utilized to convert FB- VDE into a simple computational problem by reducing it into a system of fuzzy algebraic linear equations. The capability of scheme is investigated on second order FB- VDE considered under generalized H-differentiability. Solutions are represented graphically showing competency and accuracy of this method.

    In this chapter, the role of wavelet methods applied to identification and characterization of oil reservoir is elaborated. The market rate of petroleum product is very much related to exploration, drilling and production cost. The main goal of researchers working in oil industry is to develop tools and techniques for minimizing cost of exploration and production. Efforts of researchers working in applications of wavelet methods in different parts of the world to achieve this goal is reviewed. Wavelet based solution of Buckley-Leverett equation modelling reservoir is discussed. Variants of Buckley-Leverett equations including its higher dimension versions are introduced. Wavelet methods for inverse problems associated with Buckley-Leverett equation, which are quite useful for oil recovery, are also explained in this chapter.

    We establish a precise connection between discrete wavelet transforms and entanglement renormalization, a real-space renormalization group transformation for quantum systems on the lattice, in the context of free particle systems. Specifically, we employ Daubechies wavelets to build approximations to the ground state of the critical Ising model, then demonstrate that these states correspond to instances of the multiscale entanglement renormalization ansatz (MERA), producing the first known analytic MERA for critical systems.

    Aubry, Jean-Marie; Saito, Naoki

    2000-12-01

    Fractographs are elevation maps of the fracture zone of some broken material. The technique employed to create these maps often introduces noise composed of positive or negative 'spikes' that must be removed before further analysis. Since the roughness of these maps contains useful information, it must be preserved. Consequently, conventional denoising techniques cannot be employed. We use continuous and discrete wavelet transforms of these images, and the properties of wavelet coefficients related to pointwise Hoelder regularity, to detect and remove the spikes.

  14. THE CONSTRUCTION OF WAVELET-BASED TRUNCATED CONICAL SHELL ELEMENT USING B-SPLINE WAVELET ON THE INTERVAL

    Xiang Jiawei; He Zhengjia; Chen Xuefeng

    2006-01-01

    Based on B-spline wavelet on the interval (BSWI), two classes of truncated conical shell elements were constructed to solve axisymmetric problems, i.e. BSWI thin truncated conical shell element and BSWI moderately thick truncated conical shell element with independent slopedeformation interpolation. In the construction of wavelet-based element, instead of traditional polynomial interpolation, the scaling functions of BSWI were employed to form the shape functions through the constructed elemental transformation matrix, and then construct BSWI element via the variational principle. Unlike the process of direct wavelets adding in the wavelet Galerkin method, the elemental displacement field represented by the coefficients of wavelets expansion was transformed into edges and internal modes via the constructed transformation matrix. BSWI element combines the accuracy of B-spline function approximation and various wavelet-based lements for structural analysis. Some static and dynamic numerical examples of conical shells were studied to demonstrate the present element with higher efficiency and precision than the traditional element.

  15. Balance of multi-wavelets

    MAO Yibo

    2003-01-01

    The discrete scalar data need prefiltering when transformed by discrete multi-wavelet, but prefiltering will make some properties of multi-wavelets lost. Balanced multi-wavelets can avoid prefiltering. The sufficient and necessary condition of p-order balance for multi-wavelets in time domain, the interrelation between balance order and approximation order and the sampling property of balanced multi-wavelets are investigated. The algorithms of 1-0rder and 2-0rder balancing for multi-wavelets are obtained. The two algorithms both preserve the orthogonal relation between multi-scaling function and multi-wavelets. More importantly, balancing operation doesn't increase the length of filters, which suggests that a relatively short balanced multiwavelet can be constructed from an existing unbalanced multi-wavelet as short as possible.

    This book provides a systematic exposition of the basic ideas and results of wavelet analysis suitable for mathematicians, scientists, and engineers alike. The primary goal of this text is to show how different types of wavelets can be constructed, illustrate why they are such powerful tools in mathematical analysis, and demonstrate their use in applications. It also develops the required analytical knowledge and skills on the part of the reader, rather than focus on the importance of more abstract formulation with full mathematical rigor.  These notes differs from many textbooks with similar titles in that a major emphasis is placed on the thorough development of the underlying theory before introducing applications and modern topics such as fractional Fourier transforms, windowed canonical transforms, fractional wavelet transforms, fast wavelet transforms, spline wavelets, Daubechies wavelets, harmonic wavelets and non-uniform wavelets.

    Kutyniok, Gitta

    2007-01-01

    In wavelet analysis, irregular wavelet frames have recently come to the forefront of current research due to questions concerning the robustness and stability of wavelet algorithms. A major difficulty in the study of these systems is the highly sensitive interplay between geometric properties of a sequence of time-scale indices and frame properties of the associated wavelet systems. This volume provides the first thorough and comprehensive treatment of irregular wavelet frames by introducing and employing a new notion of affine density as a highly effective tool for examining the geometry of sequences of time-scale indices. Many of the results are new and published for the first time. Topics include: qualitative and quantitative density conditions for existence of irregular wavelet frames, non-existence of irregular co-affine frames, the Nyquist phenomenon for wavelet systems, and approximation properties of irregular wavelet frames.

    2006-01-01

    The delay fault induced by cross-talk effect is one of the difficult problems in the fault diagnosis of digital circuit. An intelligent fault diagnosis based on IDDT testing and support vector machines (SVM) classifier was proposed in this paper. Firstly, the fault model induced by cross-talk effect and the IDDT testing method were analyzed, and then a delay fault localization method based on SVM was presented. The fault features of the sampled signals were extracted by wavelet packet decomposition and served as input parameters of SVM classifier to classify the different fault types. The simulation results illustrate that the method presented is accurate and effective, reaches a high diagnosis rate above 95%.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2005-01-01

    Crosstalk noise is one of the emerging issues in deep sub-micrometer technology which causes many undesired effects on the circuit performance. In this paper, a Crosstalk-Aware Routing Resource Assignment (CARRA) algorithm is proposed, which integrates the routing layers and tracks to address the crosstalk noise issue during the track/layer assignment stage. The CARRA problem is formulated as a weighted bipartite matching problem and solved using the linear assignment algorithm. The crosstalk risks between nets are represented by an undirected graph and the maximum number of the concurrent crosstalk risking nets is computed as the max clique of the graph. Then the nets in each max clique are assigned to disadjacent tracks. Thus the crosstalk noise can be avoided based on the clique concept. The algorithm is tested on IBM benchmarks and the experimental results show that it can improve the final routing layout a lot with little loss of the completion rate.

  1. Wavelet-based method for computing elastic band gaps of one-dimensional phononic crystals

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    YAN; ZhiZhong; WANG; YueSheng

    2007-01-01

    A wavelet-based method was developed to compute elastic band gaps of one-dimensional phononic crystals. The wave field was expanded in the wavelet basis and an equivalent eigenvalue problem was derived in a matrix form involving the adaptive computation of integrals of the wavelets. The method was then applied to a binary system. For comparison, the elastic band gaps of the same one-di- mensional phononic crystals computed with the wavelet method and the well- known plane wave expansion (PWE) method are both presented in this paper. The numerical results of the two methods are in good agreement while the computation costs of the wavelet method are much lower than that of PWE method. In addition, the adaptability of wavelets makes the method possible for efficient band gap computation of more complex phononic structures.

    2011-01-01

    The notion of quasi-biorthogonal frame wavelets is a generalization of the notion of orthogonal wavelets. A quasi-biorthogonal frame wavelet with the cardinality r consists of r pairs of functions.In this paper we first analyze the local property of the quasi-biorthogonal frame wavelet and show that its each pair of functions generates reconstruction formulas of the corresponding subspaces. Next we show that the lower bound of its cardinalities depends on a pair of dual frame multiresolution analyses deriving it. Finally, we present a split trick and show that any quasi-biorthogonal frame wavelet can be split into a new quasi-biorthogonal frame wavelet with an arbitrarily large cardinality. For generality,we work in the setting of matrix dilations.

    1994-08-01

    The performance of an adaptive noise canceller (ANC) is sensitive to the presence of signal `crosstalk' in the reference channel. The authors propose a novel approach to crosstalk resistant adaptive noise cancellation, namely the constrained crosstalk resistant adaptive noise canceller (CCRANC). The theoretical analysis of the CCRANC along with the constrained algorithm is presented. The performance of the CCRANC in recovering somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) from myoelectric interference is then evaluated through simulations.

    2015-01-01

    Methods to solve the relativistic hydrodynamic equations are a key computational kernel in a large number of astrophysics simulations and are crucial to understanding the electromagnetic signals that originate from the merger of astrophysical compact objects. Because of the many physical length scales present when simulating such mergers, these methods must be highly adaptive and capable of automatically resolving numerous localized features and instabilities that emerge throughout the computational domain across many temporal scales. While this has been historically accomplished with adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) based methods, alternatives based on wavelet bases and the wavelet transformation have recently achieved significant success in adaptive representation for advanced engineering applications. This work presents a new method for the integration of the relativistic hydrodynamic equations using iterated interpolating wavelets and introduces a highly adaptive implementation for multidimensional simulati...

    2000-02-25

    We present a new technique for progressive approximation and compression of polygonal objects in images. Our technique uses local parameterizations defined by meshes of convex polygons in the plane. We generalize a tensor product wavelet transform to polygonal domains to perform multiresolution analysis and compression of image regions. The advantage of our technique over conventional wavelet methods is that the domain is an arbitrary tessellation rather than, for example, a uniform rectilinear grid. We expect that this technique has many applications image compression, progressive transmission, radiosity, virtual reality, and image morphing.

  7. Method of Infrared Image Enhancement Based on Stationary Wavelet Transform

    2008-01-01

    Aiming at the problem, i.e. infrared images own the characters of bad contrast ratio and fuzzy edges, a method to enhance the contrast of infrared image is given, which is based on stationary wavelet transform. After making stationary wavelet transform to an infrared image, denoising is done by the proposed method of double-threshold shrinkage in detail coefficient matrixes that have high noisy intensity. For the approximation coefficient matrix with low noisy intensity, enhancement is done by the proposed method based on histogram. The enhanced image can be got by wavelet coefficient reconstruction. Furthermore, an evaluation criterion of enhancement performance is introduced. The results show that this algorithm ensures target enhancement and restrains additive Gauss white noise effectively. At the same time, its amount of calculation is small and operation speed is fast.

    XU Yuesheng; ZOU Qingsong

    2005-01-01

    We construct a tree wavelet approximation by using a constructive greedy scheme(CGS). We define a function class which contains the functions whose piecewise polynomial approximations generated by the CGS have a prescribed global convergence rate and establish embedding properties of this class. We provide sufficient conditions on a tree index set and on bi-orthogonal wavelet bases which ensure optimal order of convergence for the wavelet approximations encoded on the tree index set using the bi-orthogonal wavelet bases. We then show that if we use the tree index set associated with the partition generated by the CGS to encode a wavelet approximation, it gives optimal order of convergence.

    Full Text Available Detection of the warning signals by the heart can be diagnosed from ECG. An accurate and reliable diagnosis of ECG is very important however which is cumbersome and at times ambiguous in time domain due to the presence of noise. Study of ECG in wavelet domain using both continuous Wavelet transform (CWT and discrete Wavelet transform (DWT, with well known wavelet as well as a wavelet proposed by the authors for this investigation is found to be useful and yields fairly reliable results. In this study, Wavelet analysis of ECGs of Normal, Hypertensive, Diabetic and Cardiac are carried out. The salient feature of the study is that detection of P and T phases in wavelet domain is feasible which are otherwise feeble or absent in raw ECGs.

  11. Boosted bosons and wavelets

    CERN Document Server

    Søgaard, Andreas

    For the LHC Run 2 and beyond, experiments are pushing both the energy and the intensity frontier so the need for robust and efficient pile-up mitigation tools becomes ever more pressing. Several methods exist, relying on uniformity of pile-up, local correlations of charged to neutral particles, and parton shower shapes, all in $y − \\phi$ space. Wavelets are presented as tools for pile-up removal, utilising their ability to encode position and frequency information simultaneously. This allows for the separation of individual hadron collision events by angular scale and thus for subtracting of soft, diffuse/wide-angle contributions while retaining the hard, small-angle components from the hard event. Wavelet methods may utilise the same assumptions as existing methods, the difference being the underlying, novel representation. Several wavelet methods are proposed and their effect studied in simple toy simulation under conditions relevant for the LHC Run 2. One full pile-up mitigation tool (‘wavelet analysis...

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2008-01-01

    The impacts of interband and intraband crosstalk are studied and compared experimentally. Results show that interband crosstalk can be removed with narrow-band filters and has no influence on signal. Intraband crosstalk will result in signal eye diagram close and BER increasing. When the polarization states of signal and crosstalk align, intraband crosstalk seriously decreases signal quality. But when they misalign, it has little influence. Coherent and incoherent crosstalk are studied experimentally. Results show that coherent crosstalk is less harmful to system performance than incoherent crosstalk.

  15. Crosstalk in stereoscopic displays: a review

    Science.gov (United States)

    Woods, Andrew J.

    2012-10-01

    Crosstalk, also known as ghosting or leakage, is a primary factor in determining the image quality of stereoscopic three dimensional (3D) displays. In a stereoscopic display, a separate perspective view is presented to each of the observer's two eyes in order to experience a 3D image with depth sensation. When crosstalk is present in a stereoscopic display, each eye will see a combination of the image intended for that eye, and some of the image intended for the other eye-making the image look doubled or ghosted. High levels of crosstalk can make stereoscopic images hard to fuse and lack fidelity, so it is important to achieve low levels of crosstalk in the development of high-quality stereoscopic displays. Descriptive and mathematical definitions of these terms are formalized and summarized. The mechanisms by which crosstalk occurs in different stereoscopic display technologies are also reviewed, including micropol 3D liquid crystal displays (LCDs), autostereoscopic (lenticular and parallax barrier), polarized projection, anaglyph, and time-sequential 3D on LCDs, plasma display panels and cathode ray tubes. Crosstalk reduction and crosstalk cancellation are also discussed along with methods of measuring and simulating crosstalk.

    The critical role played by stroma-epithelium crosstalk in carcinogenesis and progression of prostate cancer has been increasingly recognized.These interactions are mediated by a variety of paracrine factors secreted by cancer cells and/or stromal cells.In human prostate cancer,reactive stroma is characterized by an increase in myofibroblasts and a corresponding amplification of extracellular matrix production and angiogenesis.Permanent genetic mutations have been reported in stromal cells as well as in turnout cells.Transforming growth factor-β,vascular endothelial growth factor,platelet-derived growth factor and fibroblast growth factor signalling pathways are involved in the process of angiogenesis,whereas hepatocyte growth factor,insulin-like growth factor-1,epidermal growth factor,CXC12 and Interleukin-6 play active roles in the progression,androgen-independent conversion and distal metastasis of prostate cancer.Some soluble factors have reciprocal interactions with androgens and the androgen receptor (AR),and can even activate AR in the absence of the androgen ligand.In this article,we review the complex interactions between cancer cells and the surrounding microenvironment,and discuss the potential therapeutic targets in the stromal compartment of prostate cancer.

    Xie, Cheng Jun; Yan, Su; Xiang, Yang

    2006-01-01

    In this paper the algorithms and its improvement of integer wavelet transform combining SPIHT and arithmetic coding in image lossless compression is mainly studied. The experimental result shows that if the order of low-pass filter vanish matrix is fixed, the improvement of compression effect is not evident when invertible integer wavelet transform is satisfied and focusing of energy property monotonic increase with transform scale. For the same wavelet bases, the order of low-pass filter vanish matrix is more important than the order of high-pass filter vanish matrix in improving the property of image compression. Integer wavelet transform lossless compression coding based on lifting scheme has no relation to the entropy of image. The effect of compression is depended on the the focuing of energy property of image transform.

  19. Optimized wavelets for blind separation of nonstationary surface myoelectric signals.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Farina, Dario; Lucas, Marie-Françoise; Doncarli, Christian

    2008-01-01

    Surface electromyography (EMG) signals detected over the skin surface may be mixtures of signals generated by many active muscles due to poor spatial selectivity of the recording. In this paper, we propose a new method for blind source separation (BSS) of nonstationary signals modeled as linear instantaneous mixtures. The method is based on whitening of the observations and rotation of the whitened observations. The rotation is performed by joint diagonalization of a set of spatial wavelet distributions (SWDs). The SWDs depend on the selection of the mother wavelet which can be defined by unconstrained parameters via the lattice parameterization within the multiresolution analysis framework. As the sources are classically supposed to be mutually uncorrelated, the design parameters of the mother wavelet can be blindly optimized by minimizing the average (over time lags) cross correlation between the estimated sources. The method was tested on simulated and experimental surface EMG signals and results were compared with those obtained with spatial time-frequency distributions and with second-order statistics (only spectral information). On a set of simulated signals, for 10-dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), the cross-correlation coefficient between original and estimated sources was 0.92 +/- 0.07 with wavelet optimization, 0.74 +/- 0.09 with the wavelet leading to the poorest performance, 0.85 +/- 0.07 with Wigner-Ville distribution, 0.86 +/- 0.07 with Choi-Williams distribution, and 0.73 +/- 0.05 with second-order statistics. In experimental conditions, when the flexor carpi radialis and pronator teres were concomitantly active for 50% of the time, crosstalk was 55.2 +/- 10.0% before BSS and was reduced to 15.2 +/- 6.3% with wavelet optimization, 30.1 +/- 15.0% with the worst wavelet, 28.3 +/- 12.3% with Wigner-Ville distribution, 26.2 +/- 12.0% with Choi-Williams distribution, and 35.1 +/- 15.5% with second-order statistics. In conclusion, the proposed approach

    The purpose of this paper is to construct an orthogonal Armlet multi-wavelets with multiplicity r and dilation factor a.Firstly,the definition of Armlets with dilation factor a is proposed in this paper.Based on the Two-scale Similar Transform (TST),the notion of the Para-unitary A-scale Similar Transform (PAST) is introduced,and we also give the transform on the all two-scale matrix symbols of the multi-wavelets with dilation a.Then we show that the PAST and the transform on the matrix symbols of the multi-wavelets keep the orthogonality of the multi-wavelets system.We discuss the condition that a- 1 multi-wavelets corresponding to the multi-scaling functions are all Armlets.After performing the PAST and the transform on the matrix symbols of the multi-wavelets,the multi-scaling function can be balanced and the corresponding multi-wavelets can be Armlets at the same time.The construction of Armlets with high order is also discussed.At last,by a given example,we can conclude that the algorithm is feasible and efficient.

    Full Text Available Fingerprints are today the most widely used biometric features for personal identification. With the increasing usage of biometric systems the question arises naturally how to store and handle the acquired sensor data. Our algorithm for the digitized images is based on adaptive uniform scalar quantization of discrete wavelet transform sub band decomposition. This technique referred to as the wavelet scalar quantization method. The algorithm produces archival quality images at compression ratios of around 15 to 1 and will allow the current database of paper finger print cards to be replaced by digital imagery. A compliance testing program is also being implemented to ensure high standards of image quality and interchangeability of data between different implementations.

    Mitochondria and peroxisomes are small ubiquitous organelles. They both play major roles in cell metabolism,especially in terms of fatty acid metabolism,reactive oxygen species(ROS) production,and ROS scavenging,and it is now clear that they metabolically interact with each other. These two organelles share some properties,such as great plasticity and high potency to adapt their form and number according to cell requirements. Their functions are connected,and any alteration in the function of mitochondria may induce changes inperoxisomal physiology. The objective of this paper was to highlight the interconnection and the crosstalk existing between mitochondria and peroxisomes. Special emphasis was placed on the best known connections between these organelles:origin,structure,and metabolic interconnections.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Wang Ping; Dai Xin-Gang

    2004-01-01

    The numerical solution of the Helmholtz equation for barotropic atmosphere is estimated by use of the waveletGalerkin method. The solution involves the decomposition of a circulant matrix consisting up of 2-term connection coefficients of wavelet scaling functions. Three matrix decompositions, i.e. fast Fourier transformation (FFT), Jacobian and QR decomposition methods, are tested numerically. The Jacobian method has the smallest matrix-reconstruction error with the best orthogonality while the FFT method causes the biggest errors. Numerical result reveals that the numerical solution of the equation is very sensitive to the decomposition methods, and the QR and Jacobian decomposition methods, whose errors are of the order of 10-3, much smaller than that with the FFT method, are more suitable to the numerical solution of the equation. With the two methods the solutions are also proved to have much higher accuracy than the iteration solution with the finite difference approximation. In addition, the wavelet numerical method is very useful for the solution of a climate model in low resolution. The solution accuracy of the equation may significantly increase with the order of Daubechies wavelet.

    1995-04-01

    In this paper we introduce a new class of communications systems called wavelet transform domain (WTD) systems. WTD systems are transmultiplexer (TMUX) structures in which information to be communicated over a channel is encoded, via an inverse discrete wavelet transform (IDWT), as the wavelet coefficients of the transmitted signal, and extracted at the receiver by a discrete wavelet transform (DWT). WTD constructs can be used for covert, or low probability of intercept/detection (LPI/D) communications, baseband bandwidth efficient communications, or code-division multiple access (CDMA). This paper concentrates on the spread spectrum applications.

    The aim of this study is to provide emerging applications of wavelet methods to medical signals and images, such as electrocardiogram, electroencephalogram, functional magnetic resonance imaging, computer tomography, X-ray and mammography. Interpretation of these signals and images are quite important. Nowadays wavelet methods have a significant impact on the science of medical imaging and the diagnosis of disease and screening protocols. Based on our initial investigations, future directions include neurosurgical planning and improved assessment of risk for individual patients, improved assessment and strategies for the treatment of chronic pain, improved seizure localization, and improved understanding of the physiology of neurological disorders. We look ahead to these and other emerging applications as the benefits of this technology become incorporated into current and future patient care. In this chapter by applying Fourier transform and wavelet transform, analysis and denoising of one of the important biomedical signals like EEG is carried out. The presence of rhythm, template matching, and correlation is discussed by various method. Energy of EEG signal is used to detect seizure in an epileptic patient. We have also performed denoising of EEG signals by SWT.

    2015-01-01

    POLAR is a space-borne Compton polarimeter desired to measure linear polarization of 50 -- 500 keV gamma rays arriving from prompt emission of of gamma ray bursts (GRBs). Reconstruction of energy deposition produced by gamma rays on scintillator bars is required to determine modulation curves, from which the linear polarization can be revealed. However, crosstalk between neighbor scintillator bars and non-uniformities of multi-anode photomultipliers (MaPMT) make the energy reconstruction complicated. We present a model to describe relation between recorded energy signal and visible energy deposited (real deposited energy) on detector modules and energy response matrix is de- duced from the model. According to the model, crosstalk and non-uniformities can be corrected by performing a linear transformation of recorded energy de- position with inverse matrix of the response matrix, whose elements can be also obtained by measuring Compton edges and analyzing crosstalk between recorded signal produced by gamma ray...

    We describe the Berkeley wavelet transform (BWT), a two-dimensional triadic wavelet transform. The BWT comprises four pairs of mother wavelets at four orientations. Within each pair, one wavelet has odd symmetry, and the other has even symmetry. By translation and scaling of the whole set (plus a single constant term), the wavelets form a complete, orthonormal basis in two dimensions. The BWT shares many characteristics with the receptive fields of neurons in mammalian primary visual cortex (V1). Like these receptive fields, BWT wavelets are localized in space, tuned in spatial frequency and orientation, and form a set that is approximately scale invariant. The wavelets also have spatial frequency and orientation bandwidths that are comparable with biological values. Although the classical Gabor wavelet model is a more accurate description of the receptive fields of individual V1 neurons, the BWT has some interesting advantages. It is a complete, orthonormal basis and is therefore inexpensive to compute, manipulate, and invert. These properties make the BWT useful in situations where computational power or experimental data are limited, such as estimation of the spatiotemporal receptive fields of neurons.

    2009-01-01

    A novel video watermarking system operating in the three dimensional wavelet transform is here presented. Specifically the video sequence is partitioned into spatio temporal units and the single shots are projected onto the 3D wavelet domain. First a grayscale watermark image is decomposed into a series of bitplanes that are preprocessed with a random location matrix. After that the preprocessed bitplanes are adaptively spread spectrum and added in 3D wavelet coefficients of the video shot. Our video watermarking algorithm is robust against the attacks of frame dropping, averaging and swapping. Furthermore, it allows blind retrieval of embedded watermark which does not need the original video and the watermark is perceptually invisible. The algorithm design, evaluation, and experimentation of the proposed scheme are described in this paper.

    The fourth-order B spline wavelet scaling functions are used to solve the two-dimensional unsteady diffusion equation. The calculations from a case history indicate that the method provides high accuracy and the computational efficiency is enhanced due to the small matrix derived from this method.The respective features of 3-spline wavelet scaling functions, 4-spline wavelet scaling functions and quasi-wavelet used to solve the two-dimensional unsteady diffusion equation are compared. The proposed method has potential applications in many fields including marine science.

    Full Text Available Steganography is the methods of communicating secrete information hidden in the cover object. The messages hidden in a host data are digital image, video or audio files, etc, and then transmitted secretly to the destination. In this paper we propose Wavelet based Non LSB Steganography (WNLS. The cover image is segmented into 4*4 cells and DWT/IWT is applied on each cell. The 2*2 cell of HH band of DWT/IWT are considered and manipulated with payload bit pairs using identity matrix to generate stego image. The key is used to extract payload bit pairs at the destination. It is observed that the PSNR values are better in the case of IWT compare to DWT for all image formats. The algorithm can’t be detected by existing steganalysis techniques such as chi-square and pair of values techniques. The PSNR values are high in the case of raw images compared to formatted images.

  12. Wavelets, turbulence, and boundary value problems for partial differential equations

    Weiss, John E.

    1995-04-01

    In this paper the qualitative properties of an inviscid, incompressible two-dimensional fluid are examined by numerical methods based on the compactly supported wavelets (the wavelet- Galerkin method). In particular, we examine the behavior of the spatial gradients of the vorticity. The growth of these gradients is related to the transfer of enstrophy (integral of squared vorticity) to the small-scales of the fluid motion. Implicit time differencing and wavelet-Galerkin space discretization allow a direct investigation of the long time behavior of the inviscid fluid. The effects of hyperviscosity on the long time limit are examined. To solve boundary problems we developed a new numerical method for the solution of partial differential equations in nonseparable domains. The method uses a wavelet-Galerkin solver with a nontrivial adaptation of the standard capacitance matrix method. The numerical solutions exhibit spectral convergence with regard to the order of the compactly supported, Daubechies wavelet basis. Furthermore, the rate of convergence is found to be independent of the geometry. We solve the Helmholtz equation since, for the indefinite case, the solutions have qualitative properties that well illustrate the applications of our method.

    Future cosmological surveys will provide 3D large scale structure maps with large sky coverage, for which a 3D Spherical Fourier-Bessel (SFB) analysis in is natural. Wavelets are particularly well-suited to the analysis and denoising of cosmological data, but a spherical 3D isotropic wavelet transform does not currently exist to analyse spherical 3D data. The aim of this paper is to present a new formalism for a spherical 3D isotropic wavelet, i.e. one based on the Fourier-Bessel decomposition of a 3D field and accompany the formalism with a public code to perform wavelet transforms. We describe a new 3D isotropic spherical wavelet decomposition based on the undecimated wavelet transform (UWT) described in Starck et al. 2006. We also present a new fast Discrete Spherical Fourier-Bessel Transform (DSFBT) based on both a discrete Bessel Transform and the HEALPIX angular pixelisation scheme. We test the 3D wavelet transform and as a toy-application, apply a denoising algorithm in wavelet space to the Virgo large...

    2012-11-01

    Full Text Available Wavelets offer significant advantages for the analysis of problems in quantum mechanics. Because wavelets are localized in both time and frequency they avoid certain subtle but potentially fatal conceptual errors that can result from the use of plane wave or δ function decomposition. Morlet wavelets in particular are well-suited for this work: as Gaussians, they have a simple analytic form and they work well with Feynman path integrals. But to take full advantage of Morlet wavelets we need to supply an explicit form for the inverse Morlet transform and a manifestly covariant form for the four-dimensional Morlet wavelet. We construct both here.Quanta 2012; 1: 58–70.

    Sezer, Osman G.; Altunbasak, Yucel

    2009-01-01

    This paper presents a new adaptive Boxcar/Wavelet transform for image compression. Boxcar/Wavelet decomposition emphasizes the idea of average-interpolation representation which uses dyadic averages and their interpolation to explain a special case of biorthogonal wavelet transforms (BWT). This perspective for image compression together with lifting scheme offers the ability to train an optimum 2-D filter set for nonlinear prediction (interpolation) that will adapt to the context around the low-pass wavelet coefficients for reducing energy in the high-pass bands. Moreover, the filters obtained after training is observed to posses directional information with some textural clues that can provide better prediction performance. This work addresses a firrst step towards obtaining this new set of training-based fillters in the context of Boxcar/Wavelet transform. Initial experimental results show better subjective quality performance compared to popular 9/7-tap and 5/3-tap BWTs with comparable results in objective quality.

  17. Wavelet Based Image Denoising Technique

    2011-03-01

    Full Text Available This paper proposes different approaches of wavelet based image denoising methods. The search for efficient image denoising methods is still a valid challenge at the crossing of functional analysis and statistics. In spite of the sophistication of the recently proposed methods, most algorithms have not yet attained a desirable level of applicability. Wavelet algorithms are useful tool for signal processing such as image compression and denoising. Multi wavelets can be considered as an extension of scalar wavelets. The main aim is to modify the wavelet coefficients in the new basis, the noise can be removed from the data. In this paper, we extend the existing technique and providing a comprehensive evaluation of the proposed method. Results based on different noise, such as Gaussian, Poisson’s, Salt and Pepper, and Speckle performed in this paper. A signal to noise ratio as a measure of the quality of denoising was preferred.

  18. Fast wavelet based sparse approximate inverse preconditioner

    1996-12-31

    Incomplete LU factorization is a robust preconditioner for both general and PDE problems but unfortunately not easy to parallelize. Recent study of Huckle and Grote and Chow and Saad showed that sparse approximate inverse could be a potential alternative while readily parallelizable. However, for special class of matrix A that comes from elliptic PDE problems, their preconditioners are not optimal in the sense that independent of mesh size. A reason may be that no good sparse approximate inverse exists for the dense inverse matrix. Our observation is that for this kind of matrices, its inverse entries typically have piecewise smooth changes. We can take advantage of this fact and use wavelet compression techniques to construct a better sparse approximate inverse preconditioner. We shall show numerically that our approach is effective for this kind of matrices.

    2016-01-01

    This textbook for undergraduate mathematics, science, and engineering students introduces the theory and applications of discrete Fourier and wavelet transforms using elementary linear algebra, without assuming prior knowledge of signal processing or advanced analysis.It explains how to use the Fourier matrix to extract frequency information from a digital signal and how to use circulant matrices to emphasize selected frequency ranges. It introduces discrete wavelet transforms for digital signals through the lifting method and illustrates through examples and computer explorations how these transforms are used in signal and image processing. Then the general theory of discrete wavelet transforms is developed via the matrix algebra of two-channel filter banks. Finally, wavelet transforms for analog signals are constructed based on filter bank results already presented, and the mathematical framework of multiresolution analysis is examined.

Moreover, there exists a dual wavelet frame generated by a finite linear...... combination of dilations of ψ with explicitly given coefficients.

    Multiresolution analysis (MRA) and wavelets provide useful and efficient tools for representing functions at multiple levels of details. Wavelet representations have been used in a broad range of applications, including image compression, physical simulation and numerical analysis. In this paper, the authors construct a new class of wavelets, called four-point wavelets,based on an interpolatory four-point subdivision scheme. They are of local support, symmetric and stable. The analysis and synthesis algorithms have linear time complexity. Depending on different weight parameters w, the scaling functions and wavelets generated by the four-point subdivision scheme are of different degrees of smoothness. Therefore the user can select better wavelets relevant to the practice among the classes of wavelets. The authors apply the fourpoint wavelets in signal compression. The results show that the four-point wavelets behave much better than B-spline wavelets in many situations.

    On the basis of fractional wavelet transform, we propose a new method called cascaded fractional wavelet transform to encrypt images. It has the virtues of fractional Fourier transform and wavelet transform. Fractional orders, standard focal lengths and scaling factors are its keys. Multistage fractional Fourier transforms can add the keys easily and strengthen information security. This method can also realize partial encryption just as wavelet transform and fractional wavelet transform. Optical realization of encryption and decryption is proposed. Computer simulations confirmed its possibility.

Iris recognition is one of the most secure and authentic among the other biometrics and this field demands more authentic, reliable and fast algorithms to implement these biometric systems in real time. In this paper, an efficient localization technique is presented to identify pupil and iris boundaries using histogram of the iris image. Two small portions of iris have been used for polar transformation to reduce computational time and to increase the efficiency of the system. Wavelet transform is used for feature vector generation.

    Since their appearance in mid-1980s, wavelets and, more generally, multiscale methods have become powerful tools in mathematical analysis and in applications to numerical analysis and signal processing. This book is based on "Ondelettes et Traitement Numerique du Signal" by Albert Cohen. It has been translated from French by Robert D. Ryan and extensively updated by both Cohen and Ryan. It studies the existing relations between filter banks and wavelet decompositions and shows how these relations can be exploited in the context of digital signal processing. Throughout, the book concentrates on the fundamentals. It begins with a chapter on the concept of multiresolution analysis, which contains complete proofs of the basic results. The description of filter banks that are related to wavelet bases is elaborated in both the orthogonal case (Chapter 2), and in the biorthogonal case (Chapter 4).

    2015-01-01

    This text introduces the basic concepts of function spaces and operators, both from the continuous and discrete viewpoints.  Fourier and Window Fourier Transforms are introduced and used as a guide to arrive at the concept of Wavelet transform.  The fundamental aspects of multiresolution representation, and its importance to function discretization and to the construction of wavelets is also discussed. Emphasis is given on ideas and intuition, avoiding the heavy computations which are usually involved in the study of wavelets.  Readers should have a basic knowledge of linear algebra, calculus, and some familiarity with complex analysis.  Basic knowledge of signal and image processing is desirable. This text originated from a set of notes in Portuguese that the authors wrote for a wavelet course on the Brazilian Mathematical Colloquium in 1997 at IMPA, Rio de Janeiro.

  14. Interpixel crosstalk cancellation on holographic memory

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ishii, Toshiki; Fujimura, Ryushi

    2017-09-01

    In holographic memory systems, there have been no practical techniques to minimize interpixel crosstalk thus far. We developed an interpixel crosstalk cancellation technique using a checkerboard phase pattern with a phase difference of π/2, which can decrease the size of the spatial filter along the Fourier plane with the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) kept high. This interpixel crosstalk cancellation technique is simple because it requires only one phase plate in the signal beam path. We verified the effect of such a cancellation technique by simulation. The improvement of SNR is maximized to 6.5 dB when the filter size specified in the Nyquist areal ratio is approximately 1.05 in ideal optical systems with no other fixed noise. The proposed technique can improve SNR by 0.85 in an assumed monocular architecture at an actual noise intensity. This improvement of SNR is very useful for realizing high-density recording or enhancing system robustness.

    Full Text Available Even though a large number of wavelets exist, one n eeds new wavelets for their specific applications. One of the basic wavelet categories is orthogonal wavel ets. But it was hard to find orthogonal and symmetric wavelets. Symmetricity is required for perfect reconstruction. Hence, a need for orthogonal and symmetric arises. The solution was in the form of biorthogonal wavelets which preserves perfect reconstruction condition. Though a number of biorthogonal wavelets are proposed in the literature, in this paper four new biorthogonal wavelets are proposed which gives bett er compression performance. The new wavelets are compared with traditional wavelets by using the des ign metrics Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR and Compression Ratio (CR. Set Partitioning in Hierarc hical Trees (SPIHT coding algorithm was utilized to incorporate compression of images.

    1995-07-01

    The presence of a high level of noise is a characteristic in some tomographic imaging techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET). Wavelet methods can smooth out noise while preserving significant features of images. Mallat et al. proposed a wavelet based denoising scheme exploiting wavelet modulus maxima, but the scheme is sensitive to noise. In this study, the authors explore the properties of wavelet phase, with a focus on reconstruction of emission tomography images. Specifically, they show that the wavelet phase of regular Poisson noise under a Haar-type wavelet transform converges in distribution to a random variable uniformly distributed on [0, 2{pi}). They then propose three wavelet-phase-based denoising schemes which exploit this property: edge tracking, local phase variance thresholding, and scale phase variation thresholding. Some numerical results are also presented. The numerical experiments indicate that wavelet phase techniques show promise for wavelet based denoising methods.

    2001-05-01

    Using multi-scale ideas from wavelet analysis, the singular-spectrum analysis (SSA) is extended to the study of nonstationary time series, including the case where their variance diverges. The wavelet transform is similar to a local Fourier transform within a finite moving window whose width W, proportional to the major period of interest, is varied to explore a broad range of such periods. SSA, on the other hand, relies on the construction of the lag-correlation matrix C on M lagged copies of the time series over a fixed window width W proportional to M to detect the regular part of the variability in that window in terms of the minimal number of oscillatory components. The proposed multi-scale SSA is a local SSA analysis within a moving window of width Mwavelets; successive eigenvectors of C(M) correspond approximately to successive derivatives of the first mother wavelet in standard wavelet analysis. Multi-scale SSA thus solves objectively the delicate problem of optimizing the analyzing wavelet in the time-frequency domain, by a suitable localization of the signal's correlation matrix. We present several examples of application to synthetic signals with fractal or power-law behavior which mimic selected features of certain climatic or geophysical time series. The method is applied to the monthly values of the Southern Oscillation index (SOI) which captures major features of the El Niño/Southern Oscillation in the Tropical Pacific. Our methodology highlights an abrupt periodicity shift in the SOI near 1960. This abrupt shift between 5 and 3 years supports the Devil's staircase scenario for the El Niño/Southern Oscillation phenomenon.

    We demonstrate the suppression of crosstalk between two dielectric nanowaveguides by placing an auxiliary linear waveguide between loaded waveguides spaced by one wavelength. The total cross-sectional dimension of the system containing two transmission lines is less than two microns that is hundred times smaller than a cross-section of a system made of dielectric fiber. The propagating modes in these waveguides are the sum and the difference of symmetric and antisymmetric modes of the coupled system. Crosstalk is suppressed by matching the wavenumbers of these modes. The analytically obtained results are confirmed by numerical simulation.

    A wavelet transformation is a special type of filter usually reserved for image processing and other applications. We develop metrics to evaluate wavelets for general problems on test one-dimensional systems. The goal is to eventually use a wavelet basis in electronic structure calculations. We compare a variety of orthogonal wavelets such as coiflets, symlets, and daubechies wavelets. We also evaluate a new type of orthogonal wavelet with dilation factor three which is both symmetric and compact in real space.

    Full Text Available This paper describes a Wavelet transform technique to analyze power system disturbance such as transmission line faults with Biorthogonal and Haar wavelets. In this work, wavelet transform based approach,which is used to detect transmission line faults, is proposed. The coefficient of discrete approximation of the dyadic wavelet transform with different wavelets are used to be an index for transmission line fault detection and faulted – phase selection and select which wavelet is suitable for this application. MATLAB/Simulation is used to generate fault signals. Simulation results reveal that the performance of the proposed fault detection indicator is promising and easy to implement for computer relaying application.

    Based on the general formula for finding qualified mother wavelets [Opt. Lett. 31 (2006) 407] we make wavelet transforms computed with the newly found mother wavelets (characteristic of the power 2n) for some optical Gaussian pulses, which exhibit the ability to measure frequency of the pulse more precisely and clearly. We also work with complex mother wavelets composed of new real mother wavelets, which offer the ability of obtaining phase information of the pulse as well as amplitude information. The analogy between the behavior of Hermite-Gauss beams and that of new wavelet transforms is noticed.

  5. Crosstalk Compensation for a Rapid, Higher Resolution Impedance Spectrum Measurement

    2012-03-01

    Batteries and other energy storage devices are playing larger roles in various industries (e.g., military, automotive, electric utilities, etc.) as the U.S. seeks to reduce its dependence on foreign energy resources. As such, there exists a significant need for accurate, robust state-of-health assessment techniques. Present techniques tend to focus on simple, passive monitoring of voltage and current at a given ambient temperature. However, this approach has the disadvantage of ignoring key elements of health, that is, changes in resistance growth and power fade. Impedance spectroscopy is considered a useful laboratory tool in gauging changes in the resistance and power performance, but it has not been widely considered as an onboard diagnostic tool due to the length of time required to complete the measurement. Cross-Talk Compensation (CTC) is a novel approach that enables rapid, high resolution impedance spectra measurements using a hardware platform that could be designed as an embedded system. This input signal consists of a sum-of-sines excitation current that has a known frequency spread and a duration of one period of the lowest frequency. The voltage response is then captured at a sufficiently fast sample rate. Previously developed rapid impedance spectrum measurement techniques either required a longer excitation signal or a sum-of-sines signal that was separated by harmonic frequencies to reduce or eliminate, respectively, the cross-talk interference in the calculated results. The distinct advantage of CTC, however, is that non-harmonic frequencies can now be included within the excitation signal while still keeping the signal duration at one period of the lowest frequency. Since the frequency spread of the input signal is known, the crosstalk interference between sinusoidal signals within the sum-of-sines at a given frequency of interest can be pre-determined and assigned to an error matrix. Consequently, the real and imaginary components of the

  6. Complex Wavelet Transform-Based Face Recognition

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2009-03-01

    Full Text Available Complex approximately analytic wavelets provide a local multiscale description of images with good directional selectivity and invariance to shifts and in-plane rotations. Similar to Gabor wavelets, they are insensitive to illumination variations and facial expression changes. The complex wavelet transform is, however, less redundant and computationally efficient. In this paper, we first construct complex approximately analytic wavelets in the single-tree context, which possess Gabor-like characteristics. We, then, investigate the recently developed dual-tree complex wavelet transform (DT-CWT and the single-tree complex wavelet transform (ST-CWT for the face recognition problem. Extensive experiments are carried out on standard databases. The resulting complex wavelet-based feature vectors are as discriminating as the Gabor wavelet-derived features and at the same time are of lower dimension when compared with that of Gabor wavelets. In all experiments, on two well-known databases, namely, FERET and ORL databases, complex wavelets equaled or surpassed the performance of Gabor wavelets in recognition rate when equal number of orientations and scales is used. These findings indicate that complex wavelets can provide a successful alternative to Gabor wavelets for face recognition.

    The homotopy perturbation method proposed by Ji-Huan He has been developed to solve nonlinear matrix differential equations. This paper constructs an adaptive multilevel quasi-wavelet operator according to the interpolation wavelet theory, with which the nonlinear partial differential equations can be discretized adaptively in physical spaces as a matrix differential equation, its numerical solution can be obtained by using the homotopy perturbation method. Numerical results show that the homotopy perturbation method is not sensitive to the time step, so the arithmetic error mainly arises in the space step. Burgers equation is taken as examples to illustrate its effectiveness and convenience.

    Equalizers are widely used in digital communication systems for corrupted or time varying channels. To overcome performance decline for noisy and nonlinear channels, many kinds of neural network models have been used in nonlinear equalization. In this paper, we propose a new nonlinear channel equalization, which is structured by wavelet neural networks. The orthogonal least square algorithm is applied to update the weighting matrix of wavelet networks to form a more compact wavelet basis unit, thus obtaining good equalization performance. The experimental results show that performance of the proposed equalizer based on wavelet networks can significantly improve the neural modeling accuracy and outperform conventional neural network equalization in signal to noise ratio and channel non-linearity.

    Providing a reliable short-term forecast of evapotranspiration (ET) could be a valuable element for improving the efficiency of irrigation water delivery systems. In the last decade, wavelet transform has become a useful technique for analyzing the frequency domain of hydrological time series. This study shows how wavelet transform can be used to access statistical properties of evapotranspiration. The objective of the research reported here is to use wavelet-based techniques to forecast ET up to 16 days ahead, which corresponds to the LANDSAT 7 overpass cycle. The properties of the ET time series, both physical and statistical, are examined in the time and frequency domains. We use the information about the energy decomposition in the wavelet domain to extract meaningful components that are used as inputs for ET forecasting models. Seasonal autoregressive integrated moving average (SARIMA) and multivariate relevance vector machine (MVRVM) models are coupled with the wavelet-based multiresolution analysis (MRA) results and used to generate short-term ET forecasts. Accuracy of the models is estimated and model robustness is evaluated using the bootstrap approach.

  13. low crosstalk packaging design for Josephson logic circuits

    Aoki, K.; Tazoh, Y.; Yoshikiyo, H.

    1985-03-01

    Theoretical and experimental studies are accomplished for inductive crosstalk noise reductions at Josephson chip-to-card connectors. This noise is induced by large AC power and high switching speed signal currents. The crosstalk mechanism was analyzed using a Partial Element Equivalent Circuits Model. Ground inductance causes not only crosstalk noise between connectors but also ground fluctuation noise inside the chip. This ground noise is large enough to cause false logic operations. Test chips and cards with improved connectors were produced for an experimental evaluation. Power crosstalk noise was measured using Josephson sampling circuits fabricated on the chip. The crosstalk noise - signal level ratio was less than 2.5%, when 250 MHz, 50 mA power currents were supplied. Crosstalk noise between neighboring signal connectors was also reduced to negligible level, including the worst case. These results favorably agree with calculations. This low crosstalk packaging design can be applied to high speed Josephson logic systems.

    We present a new wavelet compression and multiresolution modeling approach for sets of contours (level sets). In contrast to previous wavelet schemes, our algorithm creates a parametrization of a scalar field induced by its contoum and compactly stores this parametrization rather than function values sampled on a regular grid. Our representation is based on hierarchical polygon meshes with subdivision connectivity whose vertices are transformed into wavelet coefficients. From this sparse set of coefficients, every set of contours can be efficiently reconstructed at multiple levels of resolution. When applying lossy compression, introducing high quantization errors, our method preserves contour topology, in contrast to compression methods applied to the corresponding field function. We provide numerical results for scalar fields defined on planar domains. Our approach generalizes to volumetric domains, time-varying contours, and level sets of vector fields.

    Crosstalk effects of 36-fold segmented, large volume AGATA HPGe detectors cause shifts in the {gamma}-ray energy measured by the inner core and outer segments as function of segment multiplicity. The positions of the segment sum energy peaks vary approximately linearly with increasing segment multiplicity. The resolution of these peaks deteriorates also linearly as a function of segment multiplicity. Based on single event treatment, two methods were developed in the AGATA Collaboration to correct for the crosstalk induced effects by employing a linear transformation. The matrix elements are deduced from coincidence measurements of {gamma}-rays of various energies as recorded with digital electronics. A very efficient way to determine the matrix elements is obtained by measuring the base line shifts of untriggered segments using {gamma}-ray detection events in which energy is deposited in a single segment. A second approach is based on measuring segment energy values for {gamma}-ray interaction events in which energy is deposited in only two segments. After performing crosstalk corrections, the investigated detector shows a good fit between the core energy and the segment sum energy at all multiplicities and an improved energy resolution of the segment sum energy peaks. The corrected core energy resolution equals the segment sum energy resolution which is superior at all folds compared to the individual uncorrected energy resolutions. This is achieved by combining the two independent energy measurements with the core contact on the one hand and the segment contacts on the other hand.

    The relationship between Haar wavelet decomposition coefficients and modulated signal parameters is discussed. A new modulation classification method is presented. The new method uses the amplitude,frequency and phase information derived from Haar wavelet decomposition as feature vectors to distinguish the modulation types of M-ary Frequency-Shift Keying (MFSK), M-ary Phase-Shift Keying (MPSK) and Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) modulation types. A parallel combined classifier is designed based on these feature vectors. The overall successful recognition rate of 92.4% can be achieved even at a low Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) of 5dB.

    We propose a framework for the detection of junctions in images. Although the detection of edges and key points is a well examined and described area, the multiscale detection of junction centers, especially for odd orders, poses a challenge in pattern analysis. The goal of this paper is to build optimal junction detectors based on 2D steerable wavelets that are polar-separable in the Fourier domain. The approaches we develop are general and can be used for the detection of arbitrary symmetric and asymmetric junctions. The backbone of our construction is a multiscale pyramid with a radial wavelet function where the directional components are represented by circular harmonics and encoded in a shaping matrix. We are able to detect M -fold junctions in different scales and orientations. We provide experimental results on both simulated and real data to demonstrate the effectiveness of the algorithm.

We propose a method for generating the complete circuit of Haar wavelet based MRA by factoring butterfly matrices and conditional perfect shuffle permutation matrices. The factorization of butterfly matrices is the essential part of the design. As a result, it is the key point to obtain the circuits of .I2t()W()I2n-2t-2. In this paper, we use a simple means to develop quantum circuits for this kind of matrices. Similarly, the conditional permutation matrix is implemented entirely, combined with the scheme of Fijany and Williams. The cir-cuits and the ideas adopted in the design are simple and in-telligible.

    We construct a directional spin wavelet framework on the sphere by generalising the scalar scale-discretised wavelet transform to signals of arbitrary spin. The resulting framework is the only wavelet framework defined natively on the sphere that is able to probe the directional intensity of spin signals. Furthermore, directional spin scale-discretised wavelets support the exact synthesis of a signal on the sphere from its wavelet coefficients and satisfy excellent localisation and uncorrelation properties. Consequently, directional spin scale-discretised wavelets are likely to be of use in a wide range of applications and in particular for the analysis of the polarisation of the cosmic microwave background (CMB). We develop new algorithms to compute (scalar and spin) forward and inverse wavelet transforms exactly and efficiently for very large data-sets containing tens of millions of samples on the sphere. By leveraging a novel sampling theorem on the rotation group developed in a companion article, only hal...

    In a series of papers, Donoho and Johnstone develop a powerful theory based on wavelets for extracting non-smooth signals from noisy data. Several nonlinear smoothing algorithms are presented which provide high performance for removing Gaussian noise from a wide range of spatially inhomogeneous signals. However, like other methods based on the linear wavelet transform, these algorithms are very sensitive to certain types of non-Gaussian noise, such as outliers. In this paper, we develop outlier resistant wavelet transforms. In these transforms, outliers and outlier patches are localized to just a few scales. By using the outlier resistant wavelet transform, we improve upon the Donoho and Johnstone nonlinear signal extraction methods. The outlier resistant wavelet algorithms are included with the 'S+WAVELETS' object-oriented toolkit for wavelet analysis.

    In spite of extensive observations and numerous theoretical studies in the past decades several key questions related with Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRB) emission mechanisms are still to be answered. Precise detection of the GRB polarization carried out by dedicated instruments can provide new data and be an ultimate tool to unveil their real nature. A novel space-borne Compton polarimeter POLAR onboard the Chinese space station TG2 is designed to measure linear polarization of gamma-rays arriving from GRB prompt emissions. POLAR uses plastics scintillator bars (PS) as gamma-ray detectors and multi-anode photomultipliers (MAPMTs) for readout of the scintillation light. Inherent properties of such detection systems are crosstalk and non-uniformity. The crosstalk smears recorded energy over multiple channels making both non-uniformity corrections and energy calibration more difficult. Rigorous extraction of polarization observables requires to take such effects properly into account. We studied influence of the crosstalk on energy depositions during laboratory measurements with X-ray beams. A relation between genuine and recorded energy was deduced using an introduced model of data analysis. It postulates that both the crosstalk and non-uniformities can be described with a single matrix obtained in calibrations with mono-energetic X- and gamma-rays. Necessary corrections are introduced using matrix based equations allowing for proper evaluation of the measured GRB spectra. Validity of the method was established during dedicated experimental tests. The same approach can be also applied in space utilizing POLAR internal calibration sources. The introduced model is general and with some adjustments well suitable for data analysis from other MAPMT-based instruments.

    Using multi-scale ideas from wavelet analysis, we extend singular-spectrum analysis (SSA) to the study of nonstationary time series of length $N$ whose intermittency can give rise to the divergence of their variance. SSA relies on the construction of the lag-covariance matrix C on M lagged copies of the time series over a fixed window width W to detect the regular part of the variability in that window in terms of the minimal number of oscillatory components; here W = M Dt, with Dt the time step. The proposed multi-scale SSA is a local SSA analysis within a moving window of width M 3/4 W 3/4 N. Multi-scale SSA varies W, while keeping a fixed W/M ratio, and uses the eigenvectors of the corresponding lag-covariance matrix C_M as a data-adaptive wavelets; successive eigenvectors of C_M correspond approximately to successive derivatives of the first mother wavelet in standard wavelet analysis. Multi-scale SSA thus solves objectively the delicate problem of optimizing the analyzing wavelet in the time-frequency do...

    In the design of the finger-overlap envelope according to the envelope of wavelet function, it is concluded that the pulse-response function of the interdigital transducer (IDT) for surface acoustic wave (SAW) is identical to the wavelet function. SAW type of the wavelet-transform element is manufactured. A new method of using two wavelet-transform elements to manufacture the reconstruction element of the wavelet transform is proposed. The sources of the element error are analyzed, and the methods for reducing the error are put forward. SAW type of the wavelet transformation element and its reconstruction element have the following three characteristics: (i) the implementing methods of the wavelet transform element and its reconstruction element are simple, and free of complicated mathematical algorithms of the wavelet transform; (ii) because one of SAW element is fast, the response velocities of SAW type of the wavelet transform element and its reconstruction element are also fast; (iii) the costs of the wavelet transform element and its reconstruction element are low, so the elements may be manufactured in a large quantity.

After wavelet de-noing and pre-whit-ening, the optimal separation matrix was obtained by using RADICAL algorithm to process the EEG signals combined with Jacobi rotation matrix. Then, the paper introduced cross-correlation coefficient and matrix cross-correlation coefficient to prove the effectiveness of the proposed method. The experimental results indicate that the cross-correlation coefficient of each component for the three mutual crosstalk signals processed by RADICAL algorithm is approximate to 0 and each row of the matrix cross-correlation coefficient have the value larger than 0. 95 which is better than FastICA algorithm. It proves that the proposed method can effectively remove the noise and artifacts in EEG signals.

  1. Modeling Network Traffic in Wavelet Domain

    2004-12-01

    Full Text Available This work discovers that although network traffic has the complicated short- and long-range temporal dependence, the corresponding wavelet coefficients are no longer long-range dependent. Therefore, a "short-range" dependent process can be used to model network traffic in the wavelet domain. Both independent and Markov models are investigated. Theoretical analysis shows that the independent wavelet model is sufficiently accurate in terms of the buffer overflow probability for Fractional Gaussian Noise traffic. Any model, which captures additional correlations in the wavelet domain, only improves the performance marginally. The independent wavelet model is then used as a unified approach to model network traffic including VBR MPEG video and Ethernet data. The computational complexity is O(N for developing such wavelet models and generating synthesized traffic of length N, which is among the lowest attained.

    2010-10-01

    Full Text Available This paper investigates the application of complex wavelet transforms to the field of digital data hiding. Complex wavelets offer improved directional selectivity and shift invariance over their discretely sampled counterparts allowing for better adaptation of watermark distortions to the host media. Two methods of deriving visual models for the watermarking system are adapted to the complex wavelet transforms and their performances are compared. To produce improved capacity a spread transform embedding algorithm is devised, this combines the robustness of spread spectrum methods with the high capacity of quantization based methods. Using established information theoretic methods, limits of watermark capacity are derived that demonstrate the superiority of complex wavelets over discretely sampled wavelets. Finally results for the algorithm against commonly used attacks demonstrate its robustness and the improved performance offered by complex wavelet transforms.

  3. On the wavelet optimized finite difference method

    1994-01-01

    When one considers the effect in the physical space, Daubechies-based wavelet methods are equivalent to finite difference methods with grid refinement in regions of the domain where small scale structure exists. Adding a wavelet basis function at a given scale and location where one has a correspondingly large wavelet coefficient is, essentially, equivalent to adding a grid point, or two, at the same location and at a grid density which corresponds to the wavelet scale. This paper introduces a wavelet optimized finite difference method which is equivalent to a wavelet method in its multiresolution approach but which does not suffer from difficulties with nonlinear terms and boundary conditions, since all calculations are done in the physical space. With this method one can obtain an arbitrarily good approximation to a conservative difference method for solving nonlinear conservation laws.

  4. Cross wavelet analysis: significance testing and pitfalls

    2004-01-01

    Full Text Available In this paper, we present a detailed evaluation of cross wavelet analysis of bivariate time series. We develop a statistical test for zero wavelet coherency based on Monte Carlo simulations. If at least one of the two processes considered is Gaussian white noise, an approximative formula for the critical value can be utilized. In a second part, typical pitfalls of wavelet cross spectra and wavelet coherency are discussed. The wavelet cross spectrum appears to be not suitable for significance testing the interrelation between two processes. Instead, one should rather apply wavelet coherency. Furthermore we investigate problems due to multiple testing. Based on these results, we show that coherency between ENSO and NAO is an artefact for most of the time from 1900 to 1995. However, during a distinct period from around 1920 to 1940, significant coherency between the two phenomena occurs.

    2001-01-01

    An application of multiresolution image analysis to turbulence was investigated in this paper, in order to visualize the coherent structure and the most essential scales governing turbulence. The digital imaging photograph of jet slice was decomposed by two-dimensional discrete wavelet transform based on Daubechies, Coifman and Baylkin bases. The best choice of orthogonal wavelet basis for analyzing the image of the turbulent structures was first discussed. It is found that these orthonormal wavelet families with index N<10 were inappropriate for multiresolution image analysis of turbulent flow. The multiresolution images of turbulent structures were very similar when using the wavelet basis with the higher index number, even though wavelet bases are different functions. From the image components in orthogonal wavelet spaces with different scales, the further evident of the multi-scale structures in jet can be observed, and the edges of the vortices at different resolutions or scales and the coherent structure can be easily extracted.

    Full Text Available Image reconstruction of fluorescent molecular tomography (FMT often involves repeatedly solving large-dimensional matrix equations, which are computationally expensive, especially for the case where there are large deviations in the optical properties between the target and the reference medium. In this paper, a wavelet-based multiresolution reconstruction approach is proposed for the FMT reconstruction in combination with a parallel forward computing strategy, in which both the forward and the inverse problems of FMT are solved in the wavelet domain. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed approach can significantly speed up the reconstruction process and improve the image quality of FMT.

    Wavelet transform of neural spike trains recorded with a tetrode in the rat primary somatosensory cortex is described. Continuous wavelet transform (CWT) of the spike train clearly shows singularities hidden in the noisy or chaotic spike trains. A multiresolution analysis of the spike train is also carried out using discrete wavelet transform (DWT) for denoising and approximating at different time scales. Results suggest that this multiscale shape analysis can be a useful tool for classifying the spike trains.

    Interictal spikes and sharp waves in human EEG are characteristic signatures of epilepsy. These potentials originate as a result of synchronous, pathological discharge of many neurons. The reliable detection of such potentials has been the long standing problem in EEG analysis, especially after long-term monitoring became common in investigation of epileptic patients. The traditional definition of a spike is based on its amplitude, duration, sharpness, and emergence from its background. However, spike detection systems built solely around this definition are not reliable due to the presence of numerous transients and artifacts. We use wavelet transform to analyze the properties of EEG manifestations of epilepsy. We demonstrate that the behavior of wavelet transform of epileptic spikes across scales can constitute the foundation of a relatively simple yet effective detection algorithm.

    Yin, F F; Gao, Q

    1997-12-01

    A new algorithm has been developed to compress oncologic images using both wavelet transform and field masking methods. A compactly supported wavelet transform is used to decompose the original image into high- and low-frequency subband images. The region-of-interest (ROI) inside an image, such as an irradiated field in an electronic portal image, is identified using an image segmentation technique and is then used to generate a mask. The wavelet transform coefficients outside the mask region are then ignored so that these coefficients can be efficiently coded to minimize the image redundancy. In this study, an adaptive uniform scalar quantization method and Huffman coding with a fixed code book are employed in subsequent compression procedures. Three types of typical oncologic images are tested for compression using this new algorithm: CT, MRI, and electronic portal images with 256 x 256 matrix size and 8-bit gray levels. Peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR) is used to evaluate the quality of reconstructed image. Effects of masking and image quality on compression ratio are illustrated. Compression ratios obtained using wavelet transform with and without masking for the same PSNR are compared for all types of images. The addition of masking shows an increase of compression ratio by a factor of greater than 1.5. The effect of masking on the compression ratio depends on image type and anatomical site. A compression ratio of greater than 5 can be achieved for a lossless compression of various oncologic images with respect to the region inside the mask. Examples of reconstructed images with compression ratio greater than 50 are shown.

    We present a simple and efficient scheme that combines multiple descriptions coding with wavelet transform under JPEG2000 image coding architecture. To reduce packet losses, controlled amounts of redundancy are added to the wavelet transform coefficients to produce multiple descriptions of wavelet coefficients during the compression process to produce multiple descriptions bit-stream of a compressed image. Even if areceiver gets only parts of descriptions (other descriptions being lost), it can still reconstruct image with acceptable quality. Specifically, the scheme uses not only high-performance wavelet transform to improve compression efficiency, but also multiple descriptions technique to enhance the robustness of the compressed image that is transmitted through unreliable network channels.

    Based on the proceding Letter [Int. J. Theor. Phys. 48, 1539 (2009)], we expand the relation between wavelet transformation and Husimi distribution function to the entangled case. We find that the optical complex wavelet transformation can be used to study the entangled Husimi distribution function in phase space theory of quantum optics. We prove that the entangled Husimi distribution function of a two-mode quantum state |phi> is just the modulus square of the complex wavelet transform of exp{-(|eta|^2)/2} with phi(eta)being the mother wavelet up to a Gaussian function.

    The lifting scheme has been found to be a flexible method for constructing scalar wavelets with desirable properties. In this paper, it is extended to the LIDAR data compression. A newly developed data compression approach to approximate the LIDAR surface with a series of non-overlapping triangles has been presented. Generally a Triangulated Irregular Networks (TIN) are the most common form of digital surface model that consists of elevation values with x, y coordinates that make up triangles. But over the years the TIN data representation has become a case in point for many researchers due its large data size. Compression of TIN is needed for efficient management of large data and good surface visualization. This approach covers following steps: First, by using a Delaunay triangulation, an efficient algorithm is developed to generate TIN, which forms the terrain from an arbitrary set of data. A new interpolation wavelet filter for TIN has been applied in two steps, namely splitting and elevation. In the splitting step, a triangle has been divided into several sub-triangles and the elevation step has been used to 'modify' the point values (point coordinates for geometry) after the splitting. Then, this data set is compressed at the desired locations by using second generation wavelets. The quality of geographical surface representation after using proposed technique is compared with the original LIDAR data. The results show that this method can be used for significant reduction of data set.

    2006-01-01

    The 4-channel smooth wavelets with linear phase and orthogonality are designed from the 2-channel orthogonal wavelets with high transfer vanishing moments. Reversely, for simple lifting scheme of such 4-channel orthogonal wavelet transforms, a new 2-channel orthogonal wavelet associated with this 4-channel wavelet is constructed. The new 2-channel wavelet has at least the same number of vanishing moments as the associated 4-channel one. Finally, by combining the two such 2-channel wavelet systems, the lifting scheme of 4-channel orthogonal wavelet transform, which has simple structure and is easy to apply, is presented.

    We quantitatively investigate the main source of the intermodal crosstalk of a silicon-based bent multimode waveguide by experiment. The measurement is performed through time-domain scanning low-coherence interferometry. From the measurement results, one can not only calculate the modal crosstalk, but can also locate the position where the crosstalk appears. The results indicate that the modal mismatch at the points where the curvature of the waveguide changes is the main origin of the modal crosstalk. For a two-mode waveguide with a bending radius of 5 μm at 1310 nm, the crosstalk is as high as -20 and -16  dB for the fundamental and first-order mode, respectively. This work gives us a deep insight into how the guided modes actually propagate through the bent waveguide.

    Analysis of signaling pathways and their crosstalk is a cornerstone of systems biology. Thousands of papers have been published on these topics. Surprisingly, there is no database that carefully and explicitly documents crosstalk between specific pairs of signaling pathways. We have developed XTalkDB (http://www.xtalkdb.org) to fill this very important gap. XTalkDB contains curated information for 650 pairs of pathways from over 1600 publications. In addition, the database reports the molecular components (e.g. proteins, hormones, microRNAs) that mediate crosstalk between a pair of pathways and the species and tissue in which the crosstalk was observed. The XTalkDB website provides an easy-to-use interface for scientists to browse crosstalk information by querying one or more pathways or molecules of interest. PMID:27899583

    Full Text Available Recently anomaly detection (AD has become an important application for target detection in hyperspectralremotely sensed images. In many applications, in addition to high accuracy of detection we need a fast andreliable algorithm as well. This paper presents a novel method to improve the performance of current ADalgorithms. The proposed method first calculates Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT of every pixel vectorof image using Daubechies4 wavelet. Then, AD algorithm performs on four bands of “Wavelet transform”matrix which are the approximation of main image. In this research some benchmark AD algorithmsincluding Local RX, DWRX and DWEST have been implemented on Airborne Visible/Infrared ImagingSpectrometer (AVIRIS hyperspectral datasets. Experimental results demonstrate significant improvementof runtime in proposed method. In addition, this method improves the accuracy of AD algorithms becauseof DWT’s power in extracting approximation coefficients of signal, which contain the main behaviour ofsignal, and abandon the redundant information in hyperspectral image data.

  11. Wavelet-Galerkin Method for the Singular Perturbation Problem with Boundary Layers

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2000-01-01

    A Wavelet-Galerkin method is proposed to solve the singular perturbation problem with boundary layers numerically. Because there are boundary layers in the solution of the singular perturbation problem, the approximation spaces with different scale wavelets and boundary bases are chosen. In addition, the computation of the inner integrals is transformed to an eigenvalue problem. Therefore, a high accuracy method with reasonable computation is obtained. On the other hand, there is an explicit diagonal preconditioning which makes the condition number of the stiff matrix become bounded by a constant. The error estimate of the Wavelet-Galerkin method and the analysis of the computation complexity are given. The numerical examples show that the method is feasible and effective for solving the singular perturbation problem with boundary layers numerically.

    In this paper, an effective numerical method based on wavelet moment method is presented to enhance the analysis of interdigital transducer (IDT)for the excitation of surface acoustic waves (SAW) on the piezoelectric substrate of acoustic-optical devices. This problem is formulated in terms of an integral equa-tion, and its electric charge matrix equations obtained by the method of moment (MoM) are effectively solved by Daubechies discrete wavelet transform. One of the mosts triking advantage of this method is that it can greatly ac-celerate the computing with the help of conjugate gradient methods because the wavelet transform make the moment matrices sparse. As a result of the use of this method, the transducer input power coupling factors to both surface and bulk waves are computed. Analysis results show this method is a powerful numerical technique in analysis of IDT for acousto-optical devices.

    The MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) is one of the primary instruments in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Earth Observing System (EOS). The first MODIS instrument was launched in December 1999 on-board the Terra spacecraft. MODIS has 36 bands, among which 27-30 are Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) PhotoVoltaic (PV) bands covering a wavelength range from 6.72 μm to 9.73 μm. It has been found that there is severe contamination in Terra band 27 from other three bands due to crosstalk of signals among them. The crosstalk effect induces strong striping in the Earth View (EV) images and causes large long-term drift in the EV Brightness Temperature (BT) in the band. An algorithm using a linear approximation derived from on-orbit lunar observations has been developed to correct the crosstalk effect for band 27. It was demonstrated that the crosstalk correction can substantially reduce the striping in the EV images and significantly remove the long-term drift in the EV BT. In this paper, it is shown that other three LWIR PV bands are also contaminated by the crosstalk of signals among themselves. The effect induces strong striping artifacts and large long-term drifts in these bands as similarly observed in band 27. The crosstalk correction algorithm previously developed is applied to correct the crosstalk effect. It is demonstrated that the crosstalk correction successfully reduces the striping in the EV images and removes long-term drifts in the EV BT in bands 28-30 as was done similarly for band 27. The crosstalk correction algorithm can thus substantially improve both the image quality and radiometric accuracy of the LWIR PV bands Level 1B (L1B) products. The algorithm can be applied to other MODIS bands and/or other remote sensors that exhibit an electronic crosstalk effect.

    The MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) is a legacy Earth remote sensing instrument in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Earth Observing System (EOS). The first MODIS instrument was launched in December 1999 on board the Terra spacecraft. MODIS has 36 bands, among which bands 20-25 and bands 27-36 are thermal emissive bands covering a wavelength range from 3.7μm to 14.2μm. It has been found that there are severe contaminations in Terra bands 27-30 (6.7 μm - 9.73 μm) due to crosstalk of signals among themselves. The crosstalk effect induces strong striping artifacts in the Earth View (EV) images and causes large long-term drifts in the EV brightness temperature (BT) in these bands. An algorithm using a linear approximation derived from on-orbit lunar observations has been developed to correct the crosstalk effect for them. It was demonstrated that the crosstalk correction can substantially reduce the striping noise in the EV images and significantly remove the long-term drifts in the EV BT in the Long Wave InfraRed (LWIR) water vapor channels (bands 27-28). In this paper, the crosstalk correction algorithm previously developed is applied to correct the crosstalk effect in the remaining LWIR bands 29 and 30. The crosstalk correction successfully reduces the striping artifact in the EV images and removes long-term drifts in the EV BT in bands 29-30 as was done similarly for bands 27-28. The crosstalk correction algorithm can thus substantially improve both the image quality and the radiometric accuracy of the Level 1B (L1B) products of the LWIR PV bands, bands 27-30. From this study it is also understood that other Terra MODIS thermal emissive bands are contaminated by the crosstalk effect and that the algorithm can be applied to these bands for crosstalk correction.

    2017-04-01

    The purpose of this paper is separation and detection of different geochemical populations and anomalies from background utilizing fractal-wavelet analysis. Daubechies2 and Morlet wavelets were used for transformation of the Cu estimated data to spatial frequency based on lithogeochemical data in Bardaskan area (SE Iran) by a MATLAB code. Wavelet is a significant tool for transformation of exploratory data because the noise data are removed from results and also, accuracy for determination of thresholds can be higher than other conventional methods. The Cu threshold values for extremely, highly and moderately anomalies are 1.4%, 0.66% and 0.4%, respectively, according to the fractal-wavelet analysis based on the Daubichies2 transformation. Moreover, the fractal-wavelet analysis by the Morlet wavelet shows that the Cu threshold values are 2%, 0.75% and 0.46% for extremely, highly and moderately anomalies and populations, respectively. The results obtained by the both WT methods indicate that the main Cu enriched anomalies and populations were situated in the central parts of the Bardaskan district which are associated with surface mineralization and ancient mining digs. Furthermore, results derived via the Morlet WT is better than Daubichies2 WT according to the correlation with geological characteristics by logratio matrix. The results obtained by the fractal-wavelet method have a good correlation with geological particulars including alteration zones and surface Cu mineralization which reveals the proposed technique is an applicable approach for identification of various geochemical anomalies and zones from background. However, the main targets for detailed exploration is located in the central part of the studied area.

    2014-03-01

    CONTEXT: Nowadays, almost all stereoscopic displays suffer from crosstalk, which is one of the most dominant degradation factors of image quality and visual comfort for 3D display devices. To deal with such problems, it is worthy to quantify the amount of perceived crosstalk OBJECTIVE: Crosstalk measurements are usually based on some certain test patterns, but scene content effects are ignored. To evaluate the perceived crosstalk level for various scenes, subjective test may bring a more correct evaluation. However, it is a time consuming approach and is unsuitable for real­ time applications. Therefore, an objective metric that can reliably predict the perceived crosstalk is needed. A correct objective assessment of crosstalk for different scene contents would be beneficial to the development of crosstalk minimization and cancellation algorithms which could be used to bring a good quality of experience to viewers. METHOD: A patterned retarder 3D display is used to present 3D images in our experiment. By considering the mechanism of this kind of devices, an appropriate simulation of crosstalk is realized by image processing techniques to assign different values of crosstalk to each other between image pairs. It can be seen from the literature that the structures of scenes have a significant impact on the perceived crosstalk, so we first extract the differences of the structural information between original and distorted image pairs through Structural SIMilarity (SSIM) algorithm, which could directly evaluate the structural changes between two complex-structured signals. Then the structural changes of left view and right view are computed respectively and combined to an overall distortion map. Under 3D viewing condition, because of the added value of depth, the crosstalk of pop-out objects may be more perceptible. To model this effect, the depth map of a stereo pair is generated and the depth information is filtered by the distortion map. Moreover, human attention

    Background error covariance plays an important role in any variational data assimilation system,because it determines how information from observations is spread in model space and between different model variables.In this paper,the use of orthogonal wavelets in representation of background error covariance over a limited area is studied.Based on the WRF model and its 3D-VAR system,an algorithm using orthogonal wavelets to model background error covariance is developed.Because each wavelet function contains information on both position and scale,using a diagonal correlation matrix in wavelet space gives the possibility to represent some anisotropic and inhomogeneous characteristics of background error covariance.The experiments show that local correlation functions are better modeled than spectral methods.The formulation of wavelet background error covariance is tested with the typhoon Kaemi (2006).The results of experiments indicate that the subsequent forecasts of typhoon Kaemi's track and intensity are significantly improved by the new method.

  20. Leptin–cytokine crosstalk in breast cancer

    2013-01-01

    Despite accumulating evidence suggesting a positive correlation between leptin levels, obesity, post-menopause and breast cancer incidence, our current knowledge on the mechanisms involved in these relationships is still incomplete. Since the cloning of leptin in 1994 and its receptor (OB-R) 1 year later by Friedman’s laboratory (Zhang et al., 1994) and Tartaglia et al. (Tartaglia et al., 1995), respectively, more than 22,000 papers related to leptin functions in several biological systems have been published (Pubmed, 2012). The ob gene product, leptin, is an important circulating signal for the regulation of body weight. Additionally, leptin plays critical roles in the regulation of glucose homeostasis, reproduction, growth and the immune response. Supporting evidence for leptin roles in cancer has been shown in more than 1000 published papers, with almost 300 papers related to breast cancer (Pubmed, 2012). Specific leptin-induced signaling pathways are involved in the increased levels of inflammatory, mitogenic and pro-angiogenic factors in breast cancer. In obesity, a mild inflammatory condition, deregulated secretion of proinflammatory cytokines and adipokines such as IL-1, IL-6, TNF-α and leptin from adipose tissue, inflammatory and cancer cells could contribute to the onset and progression of cancer. We used an in silico software program, Pathway Studio 9, and found 4587 references citing these various interactions. Functional crosstalk between leptin, IL-1 and Notch signaling (NILCO) found in breast cancer cells could represent the integration of developmental, proinflammatory and pro-angiogenic signals critical for leptin-induced breast cancer cell proliferation/migration, tumor angiogenesis and breast cancer stem cells (BCSCs). Remarkably, the inhibition of leptin signaling via leptin peptide receptor antagonists (LPrAs) significantly reduced the establishment and growth of syngeneic, xenograft and carcinogen-induced breast cancer and, simultaneously

    Chenouard, Nicolas; Unser, Michael

    2012-11-01

    We introduce a systematic and practical design for steerable wavelet frames in 3D. Our steerable wavelets are obtained by applying a 3D version of the generalized Riesz transform to a primary isotropic wavelet frame. The novel transform is self-reversible (tight frame) and its elementary constituents (Riesz wavelets) can be efficiently rotated in any 3D direction by forming appropriate linear combinations. Moreover, the basis functions at a given location can be linearly combined to design custom (and adaptive) steerable wavelets. The features of the proposed method are illustrated with the processing and analysis of 3D biomedical data. In particular, we show how those wavelets can be used to characterize directional patterns and to detect edges by means of a 3D monogenic analysis. We also propose a new inverse-problem formalism along with an optimization algorithm for reconstructing 3D images from a sparse set of wavelet-domain edges. The scheme results in high-quality image reconstructions which demonstrate the feature-reduction ability of the steerable wavelets as well as their potential for solving inverse problems.

    This paper proposes to use substrate materials of small electromechanical coupling coefficient k2 (such as X-112YLiTaO3) to manufacture wavelet transform element of SAW type so as to reduce finger reflections, i.e. to reduce the error of wavelet transform element of SAW type. And it is concluded that the smaller the center frequency of the transmitting IDT of wavelet type, the smaller the error. We suggest to choose substrate material with electromechanical coupling coefficient smaller than that of X-112Y LiTaO3 in the manufacture of the transmitting IDTs of wavelet type and the receiving IDTs at center frequencies above 100MHZ, so as to reduce the errors of the transmitting IDTs of wavelet type and the receiving IDTs at center frequencies above 100MHZ.

    A novel technique for the video watermarking based on the discrete wavelet transform (DWT) is present. The intra frames of video are transformed to three gray image firstly, and then the 2th-level discrete wavelet decomposition of the gray images is computed, with which the watermark W is embedded simultaneously into and invert wavelet transform is done to obtain the gray images which contain the secret information. Change the intra frames of video based on the three gray images to make the intra frame contain the secret information. While extracting the secret information, the intra frames are transformed to three gray image, 2th-level discrete wavelet transform is done to the gray images, and the watermark W' is distilled from the wavelet coefficients of the three gray images. The test results show the superior performance of the technique and potential for the watermarking of video.

    Using a wavelet function as the filter function of Fourier self-deconvolution, a new me- thod of resolving overlapped peaks, wavelet-Fourier self-deconvolution, is founded. The properties of different wavelet deconvolution functions are studied. In addition, a cutoff value coefficient method of eliminating artificial peaks and wavelet method of removing shoulder peaks using the ratio of maximum peak to minimum peak is established. As a result, some problems in classical Fourier self-deconvolution are solved, such as the bad result of denoising, complicated processing, as well as usual appearance of artificial and shoulder peaks. Wavelet-Fourier self-deconvolution is applied to determination of multi-components in oscillographic chronopotentiometry. Experimental results show that the method has characteristics of simpler process and better effect of processing.

    2013-02-01

    In this paper, we propose an image inpainting optimization model whose objective function is a smoothed l(1) norm of the weighted nondecimated discrete cosine transform (DCT) coefficients of the underlying image. By identifying the objective function of the proposed model as a sum of a differentiable term and a nondifferentiable term, we present a basic algorithm inspired by Beck and Teboulle's recent work on the model. Based on this basic algorithm, we propose an automatic way to determine the weights involved in the model and update them in each iteration. The DCT as an orthogonal transform is used in various applications. We view the rows of a DCT matrix as the filters associated with a multiresolution analysis. Nondecimated wavelet transforms with these filters are explored in order to analyze the images to be inpainted. Our numerical experiments verify that under the proposed framework, the filters from a DCT matrix demonstrate promise for the task of image inpainting.

    Phytohormones regulate a wide array of developmental processes throughout the life cycle of plants. Herein, the various plant hormones may interact additively, synergistically, or antagonistically. By their cooperation they create a delicate regulatory network whose net output largely depends on the action of specific phytohormone combinations rather than on the independent activities of separate hormones. While most classical studies of plant hormonal control have focused mainly on the action of single hormones or on the synergistic interaction of hormones in regulating various developmental processes, recent work is beginning to shed light on the crosstalk of nominally antagonistic plant hormones, such as gibberellins and auxins with oxylipins or abscisic acid. In this review, we summarize our current understanding of how two of the first sight antagonistic plant hormones, i.e. auxins and oxylipins,interact in controlling plant responses and development.

  16. The Glomerular Filtration Barrier: Components and Crosstalk

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Madhav C. Menon

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available The glomerular filtration barrier is a highly specialized blood filtration interface that displays a high conductance to small and midsized solutes in plasma but retains relative impermeability to macromolecules. Its integrity is maintained by physicochemical and signalling interplay among its three core constituents—the glomerular endothelial cell, the basement membrane and visceral epithelial cell (podocyte. Understanding the pathomechanisms of inherited and acquired human diseases as well as experimental injury models of this barrier have helped to unravel this interdependence. Key among the consequences of interference with the integrity of the glomerular filtration barrier is the appearance of significant amounts of proteins in the urine. Proteinuria correlates with kidney disease progression and cardiovascular mortality. With specific reference to proteinuria in human and animal disease phenotypes, the following review explores the roles of the endothelial cell, glomerular basement membrane, and the podocyte and attempts to highlight examples of essential crosstalk within this barrier.

    Data sets that are being produced by today's simulations, such as the ones generated by DOE's ASCI program, are too large for real-time exploration and visualization. Therefore, new methods of visualizing these data sets need to be investigated. The authors present a method that combines isosurface representations of different resolutions into a seamless solution, virtually free of cracks and overlaps. The solution combines existing isosurface generation algorithms and wavelet theory to produce a real-time solution to multiple-resolution isosurfaces.

    Crosstalk characteristics of high density FPA detectors attract widespread attention in the application of electro-optical systems. Crosstalk characteristics of near-infrared (NIR) InGaAs photodiodes and focal plane arrays (FPAs) were studied in this paper. The mesa type detector was investigated by using laser beam induced current technique (LBIC) to measure the absorption outside the designed photosensitive area, and the results show that the excess absorption enlarges the crosstalk of the adjacent pixels. The structure optimization using the effective absorption layer between the pixels can effectively reduce the crosstalk to 2.5%. The major crosstalk components of the optimization photodiode come from the electronic signal caused by carrier lateral diffusion. For the planar type detectors, test structures were used to compare the crosstalk of different structures, and the guard ring structure shows good suppression of the crosstalk. Then the back-illuminated 32x32 InGaAs photodiodes with 30μm pitch were designed, and LBIC was used to measure its lateral diffusion of the effective carriers and fill factor of photosensitive area. The results indicate that the fill factor of detectors can reach up to 98% when the diffusion region is optimized, and the minimum response exists between two neighborhood pixels. Based on these crosstalk measurement results and optimizing structure designs, the linear InGaAs photodiodes were designed and thus the InGaAs FPA assembly was fabricated. The assembly shows higher electro-optical performance and good improvement on crosstalk. The assembly was applied in infrared imaging system and modulation transfer function (MTF) of FPA assembly was calculated to be above 0.50. The clear image based on FPA assembly was obtained.

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available Non–integer order differentiation is changing application of traditional differentiation because it can achieve a continuous interpolation of the integer order differentiation. However, implementation of the non–integer order differentiation is much more complex than that of integer order differentiation. For this purpose, a Haar wavelet-based implementation method of non–integer order differentiation is proposed. The basic idea of the proposed method is to use the operational matrix to compute the non–integer order differentiation of a signal through expanding the signal by the Haar wavelets and constructing Haar wavelet operational matrix of the non–integer order differentiation. The effectiveness of the proposed method was verified by comparison of theoretical results and those obtained by another non–integer order differential filtering method. Finally, non–integer order differentiation was applied to enhance signal.

  5. Detection of ultrasound contrast agent microbubble with constructed bubble wavelet

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    LI Bin; WAN Mingxi

    2005-01-01

    To detect the echo irradiated by microbubble out from the signal reflected by surrounding tissues, a mother wavelet named bubble wavelet according to the modified Herring oscillation equation was constructed and then applied to the original ultrasound radio frequency signal to perform the wavelet transformation. The transformed wavelet coefficients were extracted by selected threshold values to differentiate the echo of microbubble from signal of surround tissues. The effect of bubble wavelet was compared with other three commonly used mother wavelets by computer simulation and phantom experiment. The results demonstrated that there existed a highly correlation between the bubble wavelet and the experimental echo irradiated by microbubble because bubble wavelet had represented the dynamics of microbubble in advance. Furthermore, the wavelet transform results showed a better signal-noise-ratio and a sharper contrast between the echo of microbubble and the signal of surrounding tissues. Finally,constructing an overall mother wavelet library can improve the applicability and robustness of this detection method.

    2016-05-01

    A crucial component of steerable wavelets is the radial profile of the generating function in the frequency domain. In this paper, we present an infinite-dimensional optimization scheme that helps us find the optimal profile for a given criterion over the space of tight frames. We consider two classes of criteria that measure the localization of the wavelet. The first class specifies the spatial localization of the wavelet profile, and the second that of the resulting wavelet coefficients. From these metrics and the proposed algorithm, we construct tight wavelet frames that are optimally localized and provide their analytical expression. In particular, one of the considered criterion helps us finding back the popular Simoncelli wavelet profile. Finally, the investigation of local orientation estimation, image reconstruction from detected contours in the wavelet domain, and denoising indicate that optimizing wavelet localization improves the performance of steerable wavelets, since our new wavelets outperform the traditional ones.

    2004-01-01

    The wavelet transform-based adaptive multiuser detection algorithm is presented. The novel adaptive multiuser detection algorithm uses the wavelet transform for the preprocessing, and wavelet-transformed signal uses LMS algorithm to implement the adaptive multiuser detection. The algorithm makes use of wavelet transform to divide the wavelet space, which shows that the wavelet transform has a better decorrelation ability and leads to better convergence. White noise can be wiped off under the wavelet transform according to different characteristics of signal and white noise under the wavelet transform. Theoretical analyses and simulations demonstrate that the algorithm converges faster than the conventional adaptive multiuser detection algorithm, and has the better performance. Simulation results reveal that the algorithm convergence relates to the wavelet base, and show that the algorithm convergence gets better with the increasing of regularity for the same series of the wavelet base. Finally the algorithm shows that it can be easily implemented.

    2007-01-01

    This paper describes a new and efficient method for low bit-rate image coding which is based on recent development in the theory of multivariate nonlinear piecewise polynomial approximation. It combines a binary space partition scheme with geometric wavelet (GW) tree approximation so as to efficiently capture curve singularities and provide a sparse representation of the image. The GW method successfully competes with state-of-the-art wavelet methods such as the EZW, SPIHT, and EBCOT algorithms. We report a gain of about 0.4 dB over the SPIHT and EBCOT algorithms at the bit-rate 0.0625 bits-per-pixels (bpp). It also outperforms other recent methods that are based on "sparse geometric representation." For example, we report a gain of 0.27 dB over the Bandelets algorithm at 0.1 bpp. Although the algorithm is computationally intensive, its time complexity can be significantely reduced by collecting a "global" GW n-term approximation to the image from a collection of GW trees, each constructed separately over tiles of the image.

  9. Exact Wavelets on the Ball

    Leistedt, B

    2012-01-01

    We develop an exact wavelet transform on the three-dimensional ball (i.e. on the solid sphere), which we name the flaglet transform. For this purpose we first construct an exact harmonic transform on the radial line using damped Laguerre polynomials and develop a corresponding quadrature rule. Combined with the spherical harmonic transform, this approach leads to a sampling theorem on the ball and a novel three-dimensional decomposition which we call the Fourier-Laguerre transform. We relate this new transform to the well-known Fourier-Bessel decomposition and show that band-limitness in the Fourier-Laguerre basis is a sufficient condition to compute the Fourier-Bessel decomposition exactly. We then construct the flaglet transform on the ball through a harmonic tiling, which is exact thanks to the exactness of the Fourier-Laguerre transform (from which the name flaglets is coined). The corresponding wavelet kernels have compact localisation properties in real and harmonic space and their angular aperture is i...

    2017-01-01

    We use wavelet packets to investigate the clustering of matter on galactic scales in search of the Baryon Acoustic Oscillations. We do so in two ways. We develop a wavelet packet approach to measure the power spectrum and apply this method to the CMASS galaxy catalogue from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). We compare the resulting power spectrum to published BOSS results by measuring a parameter β that compares our wavelet detected oscillations to the results from the SDSS collaboration. We find that β=1 indicating that our wavelet packet methods are detecting the BAO at a similar level as traditional Fourier techniques. We then use wavelet packets to decompose, denoise, and then reconstruct the galaxy density field. Using this denoised field, we compute the standard two-point correlation function. We are able to successfully detect the BAO at r ≈ 105 h-1 Mpc in line with previous SDSS results. We conclude that wavelet packets do reproduce the results of the key clustering statistics computed by other means. The wavelet packets show distinct advantages in suppressing high frequency noise and in keeping information localized.

Crosstalk depends mostly on the frequency.

    Full Text Available Many scientists have made use of the wavelet method in analyzing time series, often using popular free software. However, at present there are no similar easy to use wavelet packages for analyzing two time series together. We discuss the cross wavelet transform and wavelet coherence for examining relationships in time frequency space between two time series. We demonstrate how phase angle statistics can be used to gain confidence in causal relationships and test mechanistic models of physical relationships between the time series. As an example of typical data where such analyses have proven useful, we apply the methods to the Arctic Oscillation index and the Baltic maximum sea ice extent record. Monte Carlo methods are used to assess the statistical significance against red noise backgrounds. A software package has been developed that allows users to perform the cross wavelet transform and wavelet coherence (www.pol.ac.uk/home/research/waveletcoherence/.

    Tan, Liying; Ma, Jing; Wang, Guangming

    2005-12-01

    The image formation and the point-spread function of an optical system are analyzed by use of the wavelet basis function. The image described by a wavelet is no longer an indivisible whole image. It is, rather, a complex image consisting of many wavelet subimages, which come from the changes of different parameters (scale) a and c, and parameters b and d show the positions of wavelet subimages under different scales. A Gaussian frequency-modulated complex-valued wavelet function is introduced to express the point-spread function of an optical system and used to describe the image formation. The analysis, in allusion to the situation of illumination with a monochromatic plain light wave, shows that using the theory of wavelet optics to describe the image formation of an optical system is feasible.

  16. Applications of a fast, continuous wavelet transform

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Dress, W.B.

    1997-02-01

    A fast, continuous, wavelet transform, based on Shannon`s sampling theorem in frequency space, has been developed for use with continuous mother wavelets and sampled data sets. The method differs from the usual discrete-wavelet approach and the continuous-wavelet transform in that, here, the wavelet is sampled in the frequency domain. Since Shannon`s sampling theorem lets us view the Fourier transform of the data set as a continuous function in frequency space, the continuous nature of the functions is kept up to the point of sampling the scale-translation lattice, so the scale-translation grid used to represent the wavelet transform is independent of the time- domain sampling of the signal under analysis. Computational cost and nonorthogonality aside, the inherent flexibility and shift invariance of the frequency-space wavelets has advantages. The method has been applied to forensic audio reconstruction speaker recognition/identification, and the detection of micromotions of heavy vehicles associated with ballistocardiac impulses originating from occupants` heart beats. Audio reconstruction is aided by selection of desired regions in the 2-D representation of the magnitude of the transformed signal. The inverse transform is applied to ridges and selected regions to reconstruct areas of interest, unencumbered by noise interference lying outside these regions. To separate micromotions imparted to a mass-spring system (e.g., a vehicle) by an occupants beating heart from gross mechanical motions due to wind and traffic vibrations, a continuous frequency-space wavelet, modeled on the frequency content of a canonical ballistocardiogram, was used to analyze time series taken from geophone measurements of vehicle micromotions. By using a family of mother wavelets, such as a set of Gaussian derivatives of various orders, features such as the glottal closing rate and word and phrase segmentation may be extracted from voice data.

    Signalling pathways are abstractions that help life scientists structure the coordination of cellular activity. Cross-talk between pathways accounts for many of the complex behaviours exhibited by signalling pathways and is often critical in producing the correct signal-response relationship. Formal models of signalling pathways and cross-talk in particular can aid understanding and drive experimentation. We define an approach to modelling based on the concept that a pathway is the (synchronising) parallel composition of instances of generic modules (with internal and external labels). Pathways are then composed by (synchronising) parallel composition and renaming; different types of cross-talk result from different combinations of synchronisation and renaming. We define a number of generic modules in PRISM and five types of cross-talk: signal flow, substrate availability, receptor function, gene expression and intracellular communication. We show that Continuous Stochastic Logic properties can both detect an...

    2012-01-01

    Small GTPases regulate a wide range of homeostatic processes such as cytoskeletal dynamics, organelle homeostasis, cell migration and vesicle trafficking, as well as in pathologic conditions such as carcinogenesis and metastatic spreading. Therefore, it is important to understand the regulation of small GTPase signaling, but this is complicated by the fact that crosstalk exists between different GTPase families and that we have to understand how they signal in time and space. The Golgi apparatus represents a hub for several signaling molecules and its importance in this field is constantly increasing. In this review we will discuss small GTPases signaling at the Golgi apparatus. Then, we will highlight recent work that contributed to a better understanding of crosstalk between different small GTPase families, with a special emphasis on their crosstalk at the Golgi apparatus. Finally, we will give a brief overview of available methods and tools to investigate spatio-temporal small GTPase crosstalk.

    Digital watermarking has been proposed as a viable solution to protect the copyright of multime-dia data in a networked environment, since it makes possible to embed identification codes into a digital docu-ment. This paper proposes a new scheme for image watermarking in which a watermark is embedded in a se-lected set of wavelet transform coefficients. To ensure the watermark invisibility with high robustness, a bi-nary pseudo-random sequence is embedded into significant wavelet coefficients by exploiting Embedded Ze-rotree Wavelet (EZW) coding algorithm. Experimental results show the effectiveness of this technique.

    This paper proposes a novel wavelet-based face recognition method using thermal infrared (1R) and visible-light face images. The method applies the combination of Gabor and the Fisherfaces method to the reconstructed IR and visible images derived from wavelet frequency subbands. Our objective is to search for the subbands that are insensitive to the variation in expression and in illumination. The classification performance is improved by combining the multispectal information coming from the subbands that attain individually low equal error rate. Experimental results on Notre Dame face database show that the proposed wavelet-based algorithm outperforms previous multispectral images fusion method as well as monospectral method.

    A new method of short-term forecasting for water consumption in municipal supply water networks based on wavelet transformation is introduced. By wavelet decomposing commonly used in the signal field, water consumption per hour is decomposed into many series. Trend item, cycle item and random item are separated from the original time series in this way.Then by analyzing, building a model, forecasting every series and composing the results, the forecasting value of the original consumption is received. Simulation results show that this forecasting method is faster and more accurate, of which the error is less than 20%,indicating that the wavelet analytical method is practicable.

Specifically,we present the results obtained on frame stability when one disturbs the mother of wavelet frame, or the parameter of dilatation, and in Gabor frames when the generating function or the parameter of translation are perturbed. In all cases we work without demanding compactness of the support, neither on the generating function, nor on its Fourier transform.

    Tanaka, Nobuatsu [Toshiba Corp., Kawasaki, Kanagawa (Japan)

    1998-03-01

    This paper describes a powerful and simple new wavelet-based preconditioning method for the CG solvers of Poisson equation. The equation can be solved with an iterative matrix solver, however, in the absence of our method, the computing time will increase exponentially with respect to an increase in grid points. Use of our technique leads to a matrix with a bounded condition number so that computing time is reduced significantly. Results from our numerical experiments confirm the power and accuracy of our wavelet-based preconditioning method. Unlike many preconditioning methods which are not suitable for vector and parallel processing, our algorithm can take advantage of the extra processing capabilities and enhance computing performance. For example, a speed up of over 100 fold can be achieved when solving Poisson equations on a Cray T3D using 128 processors in parallel. (author)

    2006-01-01

    Crosstalk has become one of the most critical concerns in very deep sub-micron era. This paper deals with the problem of crosstalk mitigation at both methodological and algorithmic levels. Noting that intermediate operations between global routing and detailed routing are very effective in crosstalk estimation and reduction, the authors propose to incorporate several intermediate steps that are separated in traditional design flow into an integrated routing resource assignment stage,so that the operations could easily cooperate to fully exert their power on crosstalk reduction. An efficient priority-based heuristic algorithm is developed, which works slice by slice. Crosstalk avoidance, and many other aspects that are critical in routing practice including congestion, vias, layer preference, etc., are taken into account. A track reservation strategy is adopted in the algorithm framework to compensate the undesired effects caused by sequential routing. Experimental results on a series of ISPD98 and industrial benchmarks show that the proposed approach is able to reduce capacitive crosstalk by about 70% on average without compromising completion ratio compared with a previously reported graph based algorithm,demonstrating the advantages of the approach.

  11. Crosstalk Channel Estimation via Standardized Two-Port Measurements

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2009-03-01

    Full Text Available The emerging multiuser transmission techniques for enabling higher data rates in the copper-access network relies upon accurate knowledge of the twisted-pair cables. In particular, the square-magnitude of the crosstalk channels between the transmission lines are of interest for crosstalk-mitigation techniques. Acquiring such information normally requires dedicated apparatus since crosstalk-channel measurement is not included in the current digital subscriber line (DSL standards. We address this problem by presenting a standard-compliant estimator for the square-magnitude of the frequency-dependent crosstalk channels that uses only functionality existing in today's standards. The proposed estimator is evaluated by laboratory experiments with standard-compliant DSL modems and real copper access network cables. The estimation results are compared with both reference measurements and with a widely used crosstalk model. The results indicate that the proposed estimator obtains an estimate of the square-magnitude of the crosstalk channels with a mean deviation from the reference measurement less than 3 dB for most frequencies.

    Full Text Available The aim of this study is to classify the citrus fruit images based on the external defect using the features extracted in the spectral domain (transform based and to compare the performance of each of the feature set. Automatic classification of agricultural produce by machine vision technology plays a very important role as it improves the quality of grading. Multi resolution analysis using wavelets yields better results for pattern recognition and object classification. This study details about an image processing method applied for classifying three external surface defects of citrus fruit using wavelet transforms based features and an artificial neural network. The Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT, Stationary Wavelet Transform (SWT and Wavelet Packet Transform (WPT features viz. mean and standard deviation of the details and approximations were extracted from citrus fruit images and used for classifying the defects. The DWT and SWT features were extracted from 40x40 sub-windows of the fruit image. The WPT features were extracted from the full fruit image of size 640x480. The classification results pertaining to the three wavelet transforms are reported and discussed.

    Xu, Jie; Messina, Joseph L

    2009-01-01

    Growth Hormone (GH) is a major growth-promoting and metabolic regulatory hormone. Interaction of GH with its cell surface GH receptor (GHR) causes activation of the GHR-associated cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase, JAK2, and activation of several signaling pathways, including the STATs, ERK1/2, and PI3K pathways. Insulin is also a key hormone regulating metabolism and growth. Insulin binding to the insulin receptor (IR) results in phosphorylation/activation of the IR, and activates the PI3K/Akt and ERK1/2 pathways. Due to their important roles in growth and metabolism, GH and insulin can functionally interact with each other, regulating cellular metabolism. In addition, recent data suggests that GH and insulin can directly interact by signaling crosstalk. Insulin regulation of GH signaling depends on the duration of exposure to insulin. Transient insulin exposure enhances GH-induced activation of MEK/ERK pathway through post-GHR mechanisms, whereas prolonged insulin exposure inhibits GH-induced signaling at both receptor and postreceptor levels. Chronic excessive GH interferes with insulin's activation of the IR/IRS/PI3K pathway and several proteins are involved in the mechanisms underlying GH-induced insulin resistance.

    Incidence of malignant melanoma is increasing globally. While the initial stages of tumors can be easily treated by a simple surgery, the therapy of advanced stages is rather limited. Melanoma cells spread rapidly through the body of a patient to form multiple metastases. Consequently, the survival rate is poor. Therefore, emphasis in melanoma research is given on early diagnosis and development of novel and more potent therapeutic options. The malignant melanoma is arising from melanocytes, cells protecting mitotically active keratinocytes against damage caused by UV light irradiation. The melanocytes originate in the neural crest and consequently migrate to the epidermis. The relationship between the melanoma cells, the melanocytes, and neural crest stem cells manifests when the melanoma cells are implanted to an early embryo: they use similar migratory routes as the normal neural crest cells. Moreover, malignant potential of these melanoma cells is overdriven in this experimental model, probably due to microenvironmental reprogramming. This observation demonstrates the crucial role of the microenvironment in melanoma biology. Indeed, malignant tumors in general represent complex ecosystems, where multiple cell types influence the growth of genetically mutated cancer cells. This concept is directly applicable to the malignant melanoma. Our review article focuses on possible strategies to modify the intercellular crosstalk in melanoma that can be employed for therapeutic purposes.

    Full Text Available Due to electric equipment development and complication it is necessary to have a precise and intense diagnosis. Nowadays there are two basic ways of diagnosis: analog signal processing and digital signal processing. The latter is more preferable. The basic ways of digital signal processing (Fourier transform and Fast Fourier transform include one of the modern methods based on wavelet transform. This research is dedicated to analyzing characteristic features and advantages of wavelet transform. This article shows the ways of using wavelet analysis and the process of test signal converting. In order to carry out this analysis, computer software Mathcad was used and 2D wavelet spectrum for a complex function was created.

    Multiple access interference (MAI) and near-far problem are two major obstacles in DS-CDMA systems.Combining wavelet neural networks and two matched filters, the novel multiuser detector, which is based on multiple variable function estimation wavelet networks over single path asynchronous channel and space-time channel respectively is presented. Excellent localization characteristics of wavelet functions in both time and frequency domains allowed hierarchical multiple resolution learning of input-output data mapping. The mathematic frame of the neural networks and error back ward propagation algorithm are introduced. The complexity of the multiuser detector only depends on that of wavelet networks. With numerical simulations and performance analysis, it indicates that the multiuser detector has excellent performance in eliminating MAI and near-far resistance.

    Takla, George F; Nair, Bala G; Loparo, Kenneth A

    2006-01-01

    In this paper we develop an approach to synthesize a wavelet that matches the ECG signal. Matching a wavelet to a signal of interest has potential advantages in extracting signal features with greater accuracy, particularly when the signal is contaminated with noise. The approach that we have taken is based on the theoretical work done by Chapa and Rao. We have applied their technique to a noise-free ECG signal representing one cardiac cycle. Results indicate that a matched wavelet, that was able to capture the broad ECG features, could be obtained. Such a wavelet could be used to extract ECG features such as QRS complexes and P&T waves with greater accuracy.

    2004-01-01

    We present a simple and efficient scheme that combines multiple descriptions coding with wavelet transform under JPEG2000 image coding architecture. To reduce packet losses, controlled amounts of redundancy are added to the wavelet transform coefficients to produce multiple descriptions of wavelet coefficients during the compression process to produce multiple descriptions bit-stream of a compressed image. Even if a receiver gets only parts of descriptions (other descriptions being lost), it can still reconstruct image with acceptable quality. Specifically, the scheme uses not only high-performance wavelet transform to improve compression efficiency, but also multiple descriptions technique to enhance the robustness of the compressed image that is transmitted through unreliable network channels.

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available Facial expression recognition is one of the most active fields of research. Many facial expression recognition methods have been developed and implemented. Neural networks (NNs have capability to undertake such pattern recognition tasks. The key factor of the use of NN is based on its characteristics. It is capable in conducting learning and generalizing, non-linear mapping, and parallel computation. Backpropagation neural networks (BPNNs are the approach methods that mostly used. In this study, BPNNs were used as classifier to categorize facial expression images into seven-class of expressions which are anger, disgust, fear, happiness, sadness, neutral and surprise. For the purpose of feature extraction tasks, three discrete wavelet transforms were used to decompose images, namely Haar wavelet, Daubechies (4 wavelet and Coiflet (1 wavelet. To analyze the proposed method, a facial expression recognition system was built. The proposed method was tested on static images from JAFFE database.

    1994-09-01

    We describe a wavelet-based technique for identifying aircraft from acoustic emissions during take-off and landing. Tests show that the sensor can be a single, inexpensive hearing-aid microphone placed close to the ground the paper describes data collection, analysis by various technique, methods of event classification, and extraction of certain physical parameters from wavelet subspace projections. The primary goal of this paper is to show that wavelet analysis can be used as a divide-and-conquer first step in signal processing, providing both simplification and noise filtering. The idea is to project the original signal onto the orthogonal wavelet subspaces, both details and approximations. Subsequent analysis, such as system identification, nonlinear systems analysis, and feature extraction, is then carried out on the various signal subspaces.

    2007-01-01

    By investigating the limitation of existing wavelet tree based image compression methods, we propose a novel wavelet fractal image compression method in this paper. Briefly, the initial errors are appointed given the different levels of importance accorded the frequency sublevel band wavelet coefficients. Higher frequency sublevel bands would lead to larger initial errors. As a result, the sizes of sublevel blocks and super blocks would be changed according to the initial errors. The matching sizes between sublevel blocks and super blocks would be changed according to the permitted errors and compression rates. Systematic analyses are performed and the experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method provides a satisfactory performance with a clearly increasing rate of compression and speed of encoding without reducing SNR and the quality of decoded images. Simulation results show that our method is superior to the traditional wavelet tree based methods of fractal image compression.

    2003-03-01

    Wavelet spectrum analysis is known to be one of the most powerful tools for exploring quasistationary signals. In this paper we use wavelet technique to develop a new Direction Finding (DF) Algorithm for the Acoustic Phased Array (APA) systems. Utilising multi-scale analysis of libraries of wavelets allows us to work with frequency bands instead of individual frequency of an acoustic source. These frequency bands could be regarded as features extracted from quasistationary signals emitted by a noisy object. For detection, tracing and identification of a sound source in a noisy environment we develop smart algorithm. The essential part of this algorithm is a special interacting procedure of the above-mentioned DF-algorithm and the wavelet-based Identification (ID) algorithm developed in [4]. Significant improvement of the basic properties of a receiving APA pattern is achieved.

    2015-01-01

    Classifying transients based on multi band light curves is a challenging but crucial problem in the era of GAIA and LSST since the sheer volume of transients will make spectroscopic classification unfeasible. Here we present a nonparametric classifier that uses the transient's light curve measurements to predict its class given training data. It implements two novel components: the first is the use of the BAGIDIS wavelet methodology - a characterization of functional data using hierarchical wavelet coefficients. The second novelty is the introduction of a ranked probability classifier on the wavelet coefficients that handles both the heteroscedasticity of the data in addition to the potential non-representativity of the training set. The ranked classifier is simple and quick to implement while a major advantage of the BAGIDIS wavelets is that they are translation invariant, hence they do not need the light curves to be aligned to extract features. Further, BAGIDIS is nonparametric so it can be used for blind ...

  5. Scalets, wavelets and (complex) turning point quantization

    Handy, C. R.; Brooks, H. A.

    2001-05-01

    Despite the many successes of wavelet analysis in image and signal processing, the incorporation of continuous wavelet transform theory within quantum mechanics has lacked a compelling, first principles, motivating analytical framework, until now. For arbitrary one-dimensional rational fraction Hamiltonians, we develop a simple, unified formalism, which clearly underscores the complementary, and mutually interdependent, role played by moment quantization theory (i.e. via scalets, as defined herein) and wavelets. This analysis involves no approximation of the Hamiltonian within the (equivalent) wavelet space, and emphasizes the importance of (complex) multiple turning point contributions in the quantization process. We apply the method to three illustrative examples. These include the (double-well) quartic anharmonic oscillator potential problem, V(x) = Z2x2 + gx4, the quartic potential, V(x) = x4, and the very interesting and significant non-Hermitian potential V(x) = -(ix)3, recently studied by Bender and Boettcher.

  6. Discrete multiscale wavelet shrinkage and integrodifferential equations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Didas, S.; Steidl, G.; Weickert, J.

    2008-04-01

    We investigate the relation between discrete wavelet shrinkage and integrodifferential equations in the context of simplification and denoising of one-dimensional signals. In the continuous setting, strong connections between these two approaches were discovered in 6 (see references). The key observation is that the wavelet transform can be understood as derivative operator after the convolution with a smoothing kernel. In this paper, we extend these ideas to the practically relevant discrete setting with both orthogonal and biorthogonal wavelets. In the discrete case, the behaviour of the smoothing kernels for different scales requires additional investigation. The results of discrete multiscale wavelet shrinkage and related discrete versions of integrodifferential equations are compared with respect to their denoising quality by numerical experiments.

  7. Coherent states, wavelets, and their generalizations

    2014-01-01

    This second edition is fully updated, covering in particular new types of coherent states (the so-called Gazeau-Klauder coherent states, nonlinear coherent states, squeezed states, as used now routinely in quantum optics) and various generalizations of wavelets (wavelets on manifolds, curvelets, shearlets, etc.). In addition, it contains a new chapter on coherent state quantization and the related probabilistic aspects. As a survey of the theory of coherent states, wavelets, and some of their generalizations, it emphasizes mathematical principles, subsuming the theories of both wavelets and coherent states into a single analytic structure. The approach allows the user to take a classical-like view of quantum states in physics.   Starting from the standard theory of coherent states over Lie groups, the authors generalize the formalism by associating coherent states to group representations that are square integrable over a homogeneous space; a further step allows one to dispense with the group context altoget...

  9. Applications of a fast continuous wavelet transform

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dress, William B.

    1997-04-01

    A fast, continuous, wavelet transform, justified by appealing to Shannon's sampling theorem in frequency space, has been developed for use with continuous mother wavelets and sampled data sets. The method differs from the usual discrete-wavelet approach and from the standard treatment of the continuous-wavelet transform in that, here, the wavelet is sampled in the frequency domain. Since Shannon's sampling theorem lets us view the Fourier transform of the data set as representing the continuous function in frequency space, the continuous nature of the functions is kept up to the point of sampling the scale-translation lattice, so the scale-translation grid used to represent the wavelet transform is independent of the time-domain sampling of the signal under analysis. Although more computationally costly and not represented by an orthogonal basis, the inherent flexibility and shift invariance of the frequency-space wavelets are advantageous for certain applications. The method has been applied to forensic audio reconstruction, speaker recognition/identification, and the detection of micromotions of heavy vehicles associated with ballistocardiac impulses originating from occupants' heart beats. Audio reconstruction is aided by selection of desired regions in the 2D representation of the magnitude of the transformed signals. The inverse transform is applied to ridges and selected regions to reconstruct areas of interest, unencumbered by noise interference lying outside these regions. To separate micromotions imparted to a mass- spring system by an occupant's beating heart from gross mechanical motions due to wind and traffic vibrations, a continuous frequency-space wavelet, modeled on the frequency content of a canonical ballistocardiogram, was used to analyze time series taken from geophone measurements of vehicle micromotions. By using a family of mother wavelets, such as a set of Gaussian derivatives of various orders, different features may be extracted from voice

    Xia, X G; Boncelet, C; Arce, G

    1998-12-07

    In this paper, we introduce a new multiresolution watermarking method for digital images. The method is based on the discrete wavelet transform (DWT). Pseudo-random codes are added to the large coefficients at the high and middle frequency bands of the DWT of an image. It is shown that this method is more robust to proposed methods to some common image distortions, such as the wavelet transform based image compression, image rescaling/stretching and image halftoning. Moreover, the method is hierarchical.

    Wavelets and wavelet transforms (WT) could be a very useful tool to analyze electroencephalogram (EEG) signals. To illustrate the WT method we make use of a simple electric circuit model introduced by Niederhauser, which is used to produce EEG-like signals, particularly during an epileptic seizure. The original model is modified to resemble the 10-20 derivation of the EEG measurements. WT is used to study the main features of these signals

  12. Wavelet adaptation for automatic voice disorders sorting.

    2013-07-01

    Early diagnosis of voice disorders and abnormalities by means of digital speech processing is a subject of interest for many researchers. Various methods are introduced in the literature, some of which are able to extensively discriminate pathological voices from normal ones. Voice disorders sorting, on the other hand, has received less attention due to the complexity of the problem. Although, previous publications show satisfactory results in classifying one type of disordered voice from normal cases, or two different types of abnormalities from each other, no comprehensive approach for automatic sorting of vocal abnormalities has been offered yet. In this paper, a solution for this problem is suggested. We create a powerful wavelet feature extraction approach, in which, instead of standard wavelets, adaptive wavelets are generated and applied to the voice signals. Orthogonal wavelets are parameterized via lattice structure and then, the optimal parameters are investigated through an iterative process, using the genetic algorithm (GA). GA is guided by the classifier results. Based on the generated wavelet, a wavelet-filterbank is constructed and the voice signals are decomposed to compute eight energy-based features. A support vector machine (SVM) then classifies the signals using the extracted features. Experimental results show that six various types of vocal disorders: paralysis, nodules, polyps, edema, spasmodic dysphonia and keratosis are fully sorted via the proposed method. This could be a successful step toward sorting a larger number of abnormalities associated with the vocal system. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

  13. Optimal wavelet denoising for smart biomonitor systems

    Science.gov (United States)

    Messer, Sheila R.; Agzarian, John; Abbott, Derek

    2001-03-01

    Future smart-systems promise many benefits for biomedical diagnostics. The ideal is for simple portable systems that display and interpret information from smart integrated probes or MEMS-based devices. In this paper, we will discuss a step towards this vision with a heart bio-monitor case study. An electronic stethoscope is used to record heart sounds and the problem of extracting noise from the signal is addressed via the use of wavelets and averaging. In our example of heartbeat analysis, phonocardiograms (PCGs) have many advantages in that they may be replayed and analysed for spectral and frequency information. Many sources of noise may pollute a PCG including foetal breath sounds if the subject is pregnant, lung and breath sounds, environmental noise and noise from contact between the recording device and the skin. Wavelets can be employed to denoise the PCG. The signal is decomposed by a discrete wavelet transform. Due to the efficient decomposition of heart signals, their wavelet coefficients tend to be much larger than those due to noise. Thus, coefficients below a certain level are regarded as noise and are thresholded out. The signal can then be reconstructed without significant loss of information in the signal. The questions that this study attempts to answer are which wavelet families, levels of decomposition, and thresholding techniques best remove the noise in a PCG. The use of averaging in combination with wavelet denoising is also addressed. Possible applications of the Hilbert Transform to heart sound analysis are discussed.

  14. Some Problems on the Global Wavelet Spectrum

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    WU Shu; LIU Qinyu

    2005-01-01

    In order to test the validity of the global wavelet spectrum - a new period analysis method based on wavelet analysis, we carried out some simple experiments. In our experiments we used idealized time series and real Ni(~n)o 3 sea surface temperature (SST) for testing purposes. First we combined different signals which have the same power but different periods into some new time series. Then we calculated the global wavelet spectra and Fourier power spectra for the testing time series. The testing results revealed that on some occasions the global wavelet spectrum tends to amplify the relative power of longer periods. By making comparisons with the results obtained by the traditional Fourier power spectrum, we demonstrated that on an occasion when the global wavelet spectrum does not work the Fourier power spectrum can be used to achieve the right results. Hence it is recommended that when making period analysis with the global wavelet spectrum one needs to do further tests to confirm their results.

    Depeursinge, Adrien; Puspoki, Zsuzsanna; Ward, John Paul; Unser, Michael

    2017-04-01

    We present texture operators encoding class-specific local organizations of image directions (LOIDs) in a rotation-invariant fashion. The LOIDs are key for visual understanding, and are at the origin of the success of the popular approaches, such as local binary patterns (LBPs) and the scale-invariant feature transform (SIFT). Whereas, LBPs and SIFT yield hand-crafted image representations, we propose to learn data-specific representations of the LOIDs in a rotation-invariant fashion. The image operators are based on steerable circular harmonic wavelets (CHWs), offering a rich and yet compact initial representation for characterizing natural textures. The joint location and orientation required to encode the LOIDs is preserved by using moving frames (MFs) texture representations built from locally-steered image gradients that are invariant to rigid motions. In a second step, we use support vector machines to learn a multi-class shaping matrix for the initial CHW representation, yielding data-driven MFs called steerable wavelet machines (SWMs). The SWM forward function is composed of linear operations (i.e., convolution and weighted combinations) interleaved with non-linear steermax operations. We experimentally demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed operators for classifying natural textures. Our scheme outperforms recent approaches on several test suites of the Outex and the CUReT databases.

    2012-07-01

    Portfolio rebalancing problem deals with resetting the proportion of different assets in a portfolio with respect to changing market conditions. The constraints included in the portfolio rebalancing problem are basic, cardinality, bounding, class and proportional transaction cost. In this study, a new heuristic algorithm named wavelet evolutionary network (WEN) is proposed for the solution of complex-constrained portfolio rebalancing problem. Initially, the empirical covariance matrix, one of the key inputs to the problem, is estimated using the wavelet shrinkage denoising technique to obtain better optimal portfolios. Secondly, the complex cardinality constraint is eliminated using k-means cluster analysis. Finally, WEN strategy with logical procedures is employed to find the initial proportion of investment in portfolio of assets and also rebalance them after certain period. Experimental studies of WEN are undertaken on Bombay Stock Exchange, India (BSE200 index, period: July 2001-July 2006) and Tokyo Stock Exchange, Japan (Nikkei225 index, period: March 2002-March 2007) data sets. The result obtained using WEN is compared with the only existing counterpart named Hopfield evolutionary network (HEN) strategy and also verifies that WEN performs better than HEN. In addition, different performance metrics and data envelopment analysis are carried out to prove the robustness and efficiency of WEN over HEN strategy.

    We demonstrate that Daubechies wavelets can be used to construct a minimal set of optimized localized adaptively contracted basis functions in which the Kohn-Sham orbitals can be represented with an arbitrarily high, controllable precision. Ground state energies and the forces acting on the ions can be calculated in this basis with the same accuracy as if they were calculated directly in a Daubechies wavelets basis, provided that the amplitude of these adaptively contracted basis functions is sufficiently small on the surface of the localization region, which is guaranteed by the optimization procedure described in this work. This approach reduces the computational costs of density functional theory calculations, and can be combined with sparse matrix algebra to obtain linear scaling with respect to the number of electrons in the system. Calculations on systems of 10 000 atoms or more thus become feasible in a systematic basis set with moderate computational resources. Further computational savings can be achieved by exploiting the similarity of the adaptively contracted basis functions for closely related environments, e.g., in geometry optimizations or combined calculations of neutral and charged systems.

    Wong, Allan C. L.; Childs, Paul A.; Peng, Gang-Ding

    2006-02-01

    We present a multiplexed fibre Fizeau interferometer (FFI) and fibre Bragg grating (FBG) sensor system for simultaneous measurement of quasi-static strain and temperature. A combined spatial-frequency and wavelength- division multiplexing scheme is employed to multiplex the FFI and FBG sensors. A demodulation technique based on the discrete wavelet transform with signal processing enhancements is used to determine the measurand- induced physical changes of the sensors. The noise associated with the sensor signal is reduced by the block-level-thresholding wavelet denoising method, which is applied via the demodulation technique. This sensor system yields a high accuracy and resolution, and low crosstalk. It is well suited for long-term quasi-static measurements, especially for the structural health monitoring of large-scale structures.

  19. Application of wavelet transform in runoff sequence analysis

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2003-01-01

    A wavelet transform is applied to runoff analysis to obtain the composition of the runoff sequence and to forecast future runoff. An observed runoff sequence is firstly decomposed and reconstructed by wavelet transform and its expanding tendency is derived. Then, the runoff sequence is forecasted by the back propagation artificial neural networks (BPANN) and by a wavelet transform combined with BPANN. The earlier researches seldom involve the problem of how to choose wavelet function, which is important and cannot be ignored when the wavelet transform is used. With application of the developed approach to the analysis of runoff sequence, several kinds of wavelet functions have been tested.

    2006-01-01

    Wavelet, a powerful tool for signal processing, can be used to approximate the target function. For enhancing the sparse property of wavelet approximation, a new algorithm was proposed by using wavelet kernel Support Vector Machines (SVM), which can converge to minimum error with better sparsity. Here, wavelet functions would be firstly used to construct the admitted kernel for SVM according to Mercy theory; then new SVM with this kernel can be used to approximate the target funciton with better sparsity than wavelet approxiamtion itself. The results obtained by our simulation experiment show the feasibility and validity of wavelet kernel support vector machines.

    2008-01-01

    A combustion instability detection method that uses the wavelet detail of combustion pressure fluctuations is put forward. To confirm this method, combustion pressure fluctuations in a stoker boiler are recorded at stable and unstable combustion with a pressure transducer. Daubechies one-order wavelet is chosen to obtain the wavelet details for comparison. It shows that the wavelet approximation indicates the general pressure change in the furnace, and the wavelet detail magnitude is consistent with the intensity of turbulence and combustion noise. The magnitude of the wavelet detail is nearly constant when the combustion is stable, however, it will fluctuate much when the combustion is unstable.

  3. Endogenous cross-talk of fungal metabolites.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kevin J Sheridan

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Non-ribosomal peptide synthesis in fungi requires a ready supply of proteogenic and non-proteogenic amino acids which are subsequently incorporated into the nascent non-ribosomal peptide via a thiotemplate mechanism catalysed by non-ribosomal peptide synthetases. Substrate amino acids can be modified prior to or during incorporation into the non-ribosomal peptide, or following incorporation into an early stage amino acid-containing biosynthetic intermediate. These post-incorporation modifications involve a range of additional enzymatic activities including but not exclusively, monooxygenases, methyltransferases, epimerases, oxidoreductases and glutathione transferases which are essential to effect biosynthesis of the final non-ribosomal peptide. Likewise, polyketide biosynthesis is directly by polyketide synthase megaenzymes and cluster-encoded ancilliary decorating enzymes. Additionally, a suite of additional primary metabolites, for example: CoA, acetyl CoA, S-adenosylmethionine, glutathione, NADPH, malonyl CoA and molecular oxygen, amongst others are required for non-ribosomal peptide and polyketide synthesis. Clearly these processes must involve exquisite orchestration to facilitate the simultaneous biosynthesis of different types of non-ribosomal peptides, polyketides, and related metabolites requiring identical or similar biosynthetic precursors or co-factors. Moreover, the near identical structures of many natural products within a given family (e.g., ergot alkaloids, along with localization to similar regions within fungi (e.g., conidia suggests that cross-talk may exist, in terms of biosynthesis and functionality. Finally, we speculate if certain biosynthetic steps involved in non-ribosomal peptide and polyketide synthesis play a role in cellular protection or environmental adaptation, and wonder if these enzymatic reactions are of equivalent importance to the actual biosynthesis of the final metabolite.

    Using an array of photo shots, the concentric mosaic offers a quick way to capture and model a realistic three-dimensional (3-D) environment. We compress the concentric mosaic image array with a 3-D wavelet transform and coding scheme. Our compression algorithm and bitstream syntax are designed to ensure that a local view rendering of the environment requires only a partial bitstream, thereby eliminating the need to decompress the entire compressed bitstream before rendering. By exploiting the ladder-like structure of the wavelet lifting scheme, the progressive inverse wavelet synthesis (PIWS) algorithm is proposed to maximally reduce the computational cost of selective data accesses on such wavelet compressed datasets. Experimental results show that the 3-D wavelet coder achieves high-compression performance. With the PIWS algorithm, a 3-D environment can be rendered in real time from a compressed dataset.

    A construction method of two channels non-separable wavelets filter bank which dilation matrix is [1, 1; 1, -1] and its application in the fusion of multi-spectral image are presented. Many 4x4 filter banks are designed. The multi-spectral image fusion algorithm based on this kind of wavelet is proposed. Using this filter bank, multi-resolution wavelet decomposition of the intensity of multi-spectral image and panchromatic image is performed, and the two low-frequency components of the intensity and the panchromatic image are merged by using a tradeoff parameter. The experiment results show that this method is good in the preservation of spectral quality and high spatial resolution information. Its performance in preserving spectral quality and high spatial information is better than the fusion method based on DWFT and IHS. When the parameter t is closed to 1, the fused image can obtain rich spectral information from the original MS image. The amount of computation reduced to only half of the fusion method based on four channels wavelet transform.

  6. Analysis of Wide-Band Signals Using Wavelet Array Processing

    2005-12-01

    Wavelets transforms allow for precise time-frequency localization in the analysis of non-stationary signals. In wavelet analysis the trade-off between frequency bandwidth and time duration, also known as Heisenberg inequality, is by-passed using a fully scalable modulated window which solves the signal-cutting problem of Windowed Fourier Transform. We propose a new seismic array data processing procedure capable of displaying the localized spatial coherence of the signal in both the time- and frequency-domain, in turn deriving the propagation parameters of the most coherent signals crossing the array. The procedure consists in: a) Wavelet coherence analysis for each station pair of the instruments array, aimed at retrieving the frequency- and time-localisation of coherent signals. To this purpose, we use the normalised wavelet cross- power spectrum, smoothed along the time and scale domains. We calculate different coherence spectra adopting smoothing windows of increasing lengths; a final, robust estimate of the time-frequency localisation of spatially-coherent signals is eventually retrieved from the stack of the individual coherence distribution. This step allows for a quick and reliable signal discrimination: wave groups propagating across the network will manifest as high-coherence patches spanning the corresponding time-scale region. b) Once the signals have been localised in the time and frequency domain,their propagation parameters are estimated using a modified MUSIC (MUltiple SIgnal Characterization) algorithm. We select the MUSIC approach as it demonstrated superior performances in the case of low SNR signals, more plane waves contemporaneously impinging at the array and closely separated sources. The narrow-band Coherent Signal Subspace technique is applied to the complex Continuous Wavelet Transform of multichannel data for improving the singularity of the estimated cross-covariance matrix and the accuracy of the estimated signal eigenvectors.

    Crosstalk in electrostatic actuator calibrations is defined as the ratio of the microphone response to the actuator excitation voltage at a given frequency with the actuator polarization voltage turned off to the response, at the excitation frequency, with the polarization voltage turned on. It consequently contributes to the uncertainty of electrostatic actuator calibrations. Two sources of crosstalk are analyzed: the first attributed to the stray capacitance between the actuator electrode and the microphone backplate, and the second to the ground resistance appearing as a common element in the actuator excitation and microphone input loops. Measurements conducted on 1/4, 1/2, and 1 in. air condenser microphones reveal that the crosstalk has no frequency dependence up to the membrane resonance frequency and that the level of crosstalk lies at about -60 dB for all three microphones-conclusions that are consistent with theory. The measurements support the stray capacitance model. The contribution of crosstalk to the measurement standard uncertainty of an electrostatic actuator calibration is therewith 0.01 dB.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zhou, Jian; Huang, Peisen S.; Chiang, Fu-Pen

    2003-11-01

    A wavelet-based pavement distress detection and evaluation method is proposed. This method consists of two main parts, real-time processing for distress detection and offline processing for distress evaluation. The real-time processing part includes wavelet transform, distress detection and isolation, and image compression and noise reduction. When a pavement image is decomposed into different frequency subbands by wavelet transform, the distresses, which are usually irregular in shape, appear as high-amplitude wavelet coefficients in the high-frequency details subbands, while the background appears in the low-frequency approximation subband. Two statistical parameters, high-amplitude wavelet coefficient percentage (HAWCP) and high-frequency energy percentage (HFEP), are established and used as criteria for real-time distress detection and distress image isolation. For compression of isolated distress images, a modified EZW (Embedded Zerotrees of Wavelet coding) is developed, which can simultaneously compress the images and reduce the noise. The compressed data are saved to the hard drive for further analysis and evaluation. The offline processing includes distress classification, distress quantification, and reconstruction of the original image for distress segmentation, distress mapping, and maintenance decision-making. The compressed data are first loaded and decoded to obtain wavelet coefficients. Then Radon transform is then applied and the parameters related to the peaks in the Radon domain are used for distress classification. For distress quantification, a norm is defined that can be used as an index for evaluating the severity and extent of the distress. Compared to visual or manual inspection, the proposed method has the advantages of being objective, high-speed, safe, automated, and applicable to different types of pavements and distresses.

  9. Data-adaptive wavelets and multi-scale singular-spectrum analysis

    Yiou, Pascal; Sornette, Didier; Ghil, Michael

    2000-08-01

    Using multi-scale ideas from wavelet analysis, we extend singular-spectrum analysis (SSA) to the study of nonstationary time series, including the case where intermittency gives rise to the divergence of their variance. The wavelet transform resembles a local Fourier transform within a finite moving window whose width W, proportional to the major period of interest, is varied to explore a broad range of such periods. SSA, on the other hand, relies on the construction of the lag-correlation matrix C on M lagged copies of the time series over a fixed window width W to detect the regular part of the variability in that window in terms of the minimal number of oscillatory components; here W= MΔ t with Δ t as the time step. The proposed multi-scale SSA is a local SSA analysis within a moving window of width M≤ W≤ N, where N is the length of the time series. Multi-scale SSA varies W, while keeping a fixed W/ M ratio, and uses the eigenvectors of the corresponding lag-correlation matrix C(M) as data-adaptive wavelets; successive eigenvectors of C(M) correspond approximately to successive derivatives of the first mother wavelet in standard wavelet analysis. Multi-scale SSA thus solves objectively the delicate problem of optimizing the analyzing wavelet in the time-frequency domain by a suitable localization of the signal’s correlation matrix. We present several examples of application to synthetic signals with fractal or power-law behavior which mimic selected features of certain climatic or geophysical time series. The method is applied next to the monthly values of the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) for 1933-1996; the SOI time series is widely believed to capture major features of the El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) in the Tropical Pacific. Our methodology highlights an abrupt periodicity shift in the SOI near 1960. This abrupt shift between 5 and 3 years supports the Devil’s staircase scenario for the ENSO phenomenon (preliminary results of this study

    2012-04-01

    GPR is an invaluable tool for civil and geotechnical engineering applications. One of the most significant objectives of such applications is the detection of fractures, inclined interfaces, empty or filled cavities frequently associated with jointing/faulting and a host of other oriented features. These types of target, especially fractures, are usually not good reflectors and are spatially localized. Their scale is therefore a factor significantly affecting their detectability. Quite frequently, systemic or extraneous noise, or other significant structural characteristics swamp the data with information which blurs, or even masks reflections from such targets, rendering their recognition difficult. This paper reports a method of extracting information (isolating) oriented and scale-dependent structural characteristics, based on oriented two-dimensional B-spline wavelet filters and Gabor wavelet filters. In addition to their advantageous properties (e.g. compact support, orthogonality etc), B-spline wavelets comprise a family with a broad spectrum of frequency localization properties and frequency responses that mimic, more or less, the shape of the radar source wavelet. For instance, the Ricker wavelet is also approximated by derivatives of Cardinal B-splines. An oriented two-dimensional B-spline filter is built by sidewise arranging a number of identical one-dimensional wavelets to create a matrix, tapering the edge-parallel direction with an orthogonal window function and rotating the resulting matrix to the desired orientation. The length of the one-dimensional wavelet (edge-normal direction) determines the width of the topographic features to be isolated. The number of parallel wavelets (edge-parallel direction) determines the feature length over which to smooth. The Gabor wavelets were produced by a Gabor kernel that is a product of an elliptical Gaussian and a complex plane wave: it is two-dimensional by definition. Their applications have hitherto focused

  12. TESTING FOR OUTLIERS IN TIME SERIES USING WAVELETS

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    ZHANG Tong; ZHANG Xibin; ZHANG Shiying

    2003-01-01

    One remarkable feature of wavelet decomposition is that the wavelet coefficients are localized, and any singularity in the input signals can only affect the wavelet coefficients at the point near the singularity. The localized property of the wavelet coefficients allows us to identify the singularities in the input signals by studying the wavelet coefficients at different resolution levels. This paper considers wavelet-based approaches for the detection of outliers in time series. Outliers are high-frequency phenomena which are associated with the wavelet coefficients with large absolute values at different resolution levels. On the basis of the first-level wavelet coefficients, this paper presents a diagnostic to identify outliers in a time series. Under the null hypothesis that there is no outlier, the proposed diagnostic is distributed as a X12. Empirical examples are presented to demonstrate the application of the proposed diagnostic.

    1997-10-01

    This is the final report of a three-year, Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) project at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). Wavelet transforms are useful in representing transients whose time and frequency structure reflect the dynamics of an underlying physical system. Speech sound, pressure in turbulent fluid flow, or engine sound in automobiles are excellent candidates for wavelet analysis. This project focused on (1) methods for choosing the parent wavelet for a continuous wavelet transform in pattern recognition applications and (2) the more efficient computation of continuous wavelet transforms by understanding the relationship between discrete wavelet transforms and discretized continuous wavelet transforms. The most interesting result of this research is the finding that the generalized wave equation, on which the continuous wavelet transform is based, can be used to understand phenomena that relate to the process of hearing.

  17. Wavelet view on renormalization group

    CERN Document Server

    Altaisky, M V

    2016-01-01

    It is shown that the renormalization group turns to be a symmetry group in a theory initially formulated in a space of scale-dependent functions, i.e, those depending on both the position $x$ and the resolution $a$. Such theory, earlier described in {\\em Phys.Rev.D} 81(2010)125003, 88(2013)025015, is finite by construction. The space of scale-dependent functions $\\{ \\phi_a(x) \\}$ is more relevant to physical reality than the space of square-integrable functions $\\mathrm{L}^2(R^d)$, because, due to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, what is really measured in any experiment is always defined in a region rather than point. The effective action $\\Gamma_{(A)}$ of our theory turns to be complementary to the exact renormalization group effective action. The role of the regulator is played by the basic wavelet -- an "aperture function" of a measuring device used to produce the snapshot of a field $\\phi$ at the point $x$ with the resolution $a$. The standard RG results for $\\phi^4$ model are reproduced.

  18. Crosstalk Model and Estimation Formula for VLSI Interconnect Wires

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2002-01-01

    We develop an interconnect crosstalk estimation model on the assumption of linearity for CMOS device. First, we analyze the terminal response of RC model on the worst condition from the S field to the time domain. The exact 3 order coefficients in S field are obtained due to the interconnect tree model. Based on this, a crosstalk peak estimation formula is presented. Unlike other crosstalk equations in the literature, this formula is only used coupled capacitance and grand capacitance as parameter. Experimental results show that, compared with the SPICE results, the estimation formulae are simple and accurate. So the model is expected to be used in such fields as layout-driven logic and high level synthesis, performance-driven floorplanning and interconnect planning.

    2017-08-01

    Electric crosstalk phenomenon in valence change resistive switching memory (VCM) is systematically investigated. When a voltage is applied on the VCM device, an electric field is formed in the isolated region between the devices, which causes the oxygen vacancies in conductive filaments (CFs) to drift apart, leading to a consequent resistance degradation of the neighboring devices. The effects of distance between memory cells, electrodes widths and physical dimensions of CFs on the memory performance are investigated in this work. Furthermore, the strategies to mitigate electric crosstalk effects are developed. According to the simulation results, the crosstalk phenomenon can become more severe as the distance between memory cells or the electrode width decreases. In order to optimize the device performance, it is helpful to control the location of the break points of CFs in the device close to the top electrode. Alternatively, taking the integration density into account, switching materials with a small field accelerated parameter can also contribute to obtaining a stable performance.

    Li, Qian-Feng; He, Jun-Xian

    2013-07-01

    Brassinosteroids (BRs) and Gibberellins (GAs) are two principal groups of growth-promoting phytohormones. Accumulating evidence supports that there are crosstalks between BR and GA signaling pathways. However, a molecular mechanism for direct signaling crosstalk between BRs and GAs was not revealed until recently. Works from three different groups demonstrated that an interaction between BZR1/BES1 and DELLAs, two groups of key transcriptional regulators from the BR and GA signaling pathways, respectively, mediates the direct signaling crosstalk between BRs and GAs in controlling cell elongation in Arabidopsis. It was shown that DELLA proteins not only affect the protein stability but also inhibit the transcriptional activity of BZR1. Thus, GAs promote cell elongation, at least in part, through releasing DELLA-mediated inhibition of BZR1. This review aims to introduce these recent advances in our understanding of how BRs and GAs coordinate to regulate plant growth and development at the molecular level.

Polygonal control meshes are recursively refined by stationary subdivision rules and converge to piecewise polynomial limit surfaces. At every subdivision level, our wavelet transforms provide an efficient way to add geometric details that are expanded from wavelet coefficients.

  11. Embedded wavelet video coding with error concealment

    Science.gov (United States)

    Chang, Pao-Chi; Chen, Hsiao-Ching; Lu, Ta-Te

    2000-04-01

    We present an error-concealed embedded wavelet (ECEW) video coding system for transmission over Internet or wireless networks. This system consists of two types of frames: intra (I) frames and inter, or predicted (P), frames. Inter frames are constructed by the residual frames formed by variable block-size multiresolution motion estimation (MRME). Motion vectors are compressed by arithmetic coding. The image data of intra frames and residual frames are coded by error-resilient embedded zerotree wavelet (ER-EZW) coding. The ER-EZW coding partitions the wavelet coefficients into several groups and each group is coded independently. Therefore, the error propagation effect resulting from an error is only confined in a group. In EZW coding any single error may result in a totally undecodable bitstream. To further reduce the error damage, we use the error concealment at the decoding end. In intra frames, the erroneous wavelet coefficients are replaced by neighbors. In inter frames, erroneous blocks of wavelet coefficients are replaced by data from the previous frame. Simulations show that the performance of ECEW is superior to ECEW without error concealment by 7 to approximately 8 dB at the error-rate of 10-3 in intra frames. The improvement still has 2 to approximately 3 dB at a higher error-rate of 10-2 in inter frames.

    2003-01-01

    As a powerful analysis tool and the result of contemporary mathematics development, wavelet transform has shown its promising application potentials through the research in the paper. Three aspects regarding GPS receiver performance is tackled: cycle slip detection, receiver noise analysis and receiver channel bias inspection. Wavelet decomposition for double differential observation has demonstrated that this multi-level transform can reveal cycle slips as small as 0.5 cycles without any pre-adjustment processes or satellite orbit information, it can therefore be regarded as a 'geometry free' method. Based on property assumption of receiver noise, signal of noise serial is obtained at the high frequency scale in wavelet decomposition layers. This kind of noise influence on GPSb aseline result can be effectively eliminated by reconstruction process during wavelet reconstruction. Through observed data analysis, the transform has detected a kind of receiver channel bias that has not been completely removed by processing unit of GPS receiver during clock offset resetting operation. Thus the wavelet approach can be employed as a kind of system diagnosis in a generalized point of view.

    2005-04-01

    The West Indian manatee (Trichechus manatus latirostris) has become endangered partly because of watercraft collisions in Florida's coastal waterways. Several boater warning systems, based upon manatee vocalizations, have been proposed to reduce the number of collisions. Three detection methods based on the Fourier transform (threshold, harmonic content and autocorrelation methods) were previously suggested and tested. In the last decade, the wavelet transform has emerged as an alternative to the Fourier transform and has been successfully applied in various fields of science and engineering including the acoustic detection of dolphin vocalizations. As of yet, no prior research has been conducted in analyzing manatee vocalizations using the wavelet transform. Within this study, the wavelet transform is used as an alternative to the Fourier transform in detecting manatee vocalizations. The wavelet coefficients are analyzed and tested against a specified criterion to determine the existence of a manatee call. The performance of the method presented is tested on the same data previously used in the prior studies, and the results are compared. Preliminary results indicate that using the wavelet transform as a signal processing technique to detect manatee vocalizations shows great promise.

    2004-02-01

    Multiscale analyses can be provided by application wavelet transforms. For image processing purposes, we applied algorithms which imply a quasi isotropic vision. For a uniform noisy image, a wavelet coefficient W has a probability density function (PDF) p(W) which depends on the noise statistic. The PDF was determined for many statistical noises: Gauss, Poission, Rayleigh, exponential. For CCD observations, the Anscombe transform was generalized to a mixed Gasus+Poisson noise. From the discrete wavelet transform a set of significant wavelet coefficients (SSWC)is obtained. Many applications have been derived like denoising and deconvolution. Our main application is the decomposition of the image into objects, i.e the vision. At each scale an image labelling is performed in the SSWC. An interscale graph linking the fields of significant pixels is then obtained. The objects are identified using this graph. The wavelet coefficients of the tree related to a given object allow one to reconstruct its image by a classical inverse method. This vision model has been applied to astronomical images, improving the analysis of complex structures.

  15. A Dual Decomposition Approach to Partial Crosstalk Cancelation in a Multiuser DMT-xDSL Environment

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Verlinden Jan

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available In modern DSL systems, far-end crosstalk is a major source of performance degradation. Crosstalk cancelation schemes have been proposed to mitigate the effect of crosstalk. However, the complexity of crosstalk cancelation grows with the square of the number of lines in the binder. Fortunately, most of the crosstalk originates from a limited number of lines and, for DMT-based xDSL systems, on a limited number of tones. As a result, a fraction of the complexity of full crosstalk cancelation suffices to cancel most of the crosstalk. The challenge is then to determine which crosstalk to cancel on which tones, given a complexity constraint. This paper presents an algorithm based on a dual decomposition to optimally solve this problem. The proposed algorithm naturally incorporates rate constraints and the complexity of the algorithm compares favorably to a known resource allocation algorithm, where a multiuser extension is made to incorporate the rate constraints.

    Invasion and metastasis are the deadly face of malignant tumors. Considering the high rate of incidence and mortality of colorectal cancer, it is critical to determine the mechanisms of its dissemination. In the parallel investigation of the invasive front and tumor center area of colorectal cancer (CRC), observation of heterogeneous p-catenin distribution and epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) at the invasive front suggested that there might be a crosstalk between tumor cells and the tumor microenvironment. Wnt signaling pathway is also involved in the cancer progression due to its key role in CRC tumorigenesis. Moreover, in recent years, there is increasing evidence that the regulators of microenvironment, including extracellular matrix, growth factors and inflammatory factors, are associated with the activation of Wnt pathway and the mobility of tumor cells. In this review, we will try to explain how these molecules trigger metastasis via the Wnt pathway.

    Full Text Available The antibacterial defense against infections depends on the cooperation between distinct phagocytes of the innate immune system, namely macrophages and neutrophils. However, the mechanisms driving this cooperation are incompletely understood. In this study we describe the crosstalk between Ly6C+ and Ly6C− macrophage-subtypes and neutrophils in the context of urinary tract infection (UTI with uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC. Ly6C− macrophages acted as tissue resident sentinels and attracted circulating phagocytes by chemokines. Ly6C+ macrophages produced tumor necrosis factor (TNF that licensed Ly6C− macrophages to release preformed CXCL2, which in turn caused matrix metalloproteinases (MMP-9 secretion by neutrophils to enable transepithelial migration.

  19. Comparison of Wavelet Filters in Image Coding and Denoising using Embedded Zerotree Wavelet Algorithm

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available In this study, we present Embedded Zerotree Wavelet (EZW algorithm to compress the image using different wavelet filters such as Biorthogonal, Coiflets, Daubechies, Symlets and Reverse Biorthogonal and to remove noise by setting appropriate threshold value while decoding. Compression methods are important in telemedicine applications by reducing number of bits per pixel to adequately represent the image. Data storage requirements are reduced and transmission efficiency is improved because of compressing the image. The EZW algorithm is an effective and computationally efficient technique in image coding. Obtaining the best image quality for a given bit rate and accomplishing this task in an embedded fashion are the two problems addressed by the EZW algorithm. A technique to decompose the image using wavelets has gained a great deal of popularity in recent years. Apart from very good compression performance, EZW algorithm has the property that the bitstream can be truncated at any point and still be decoded with a good quality image. All the standard wavelet filters are used and the results are compared with different thresholds in the encoding section. Bit rate versus PSNR simulation results are obtained for the image 256x256 barbara with different wavelet filters. It shows that the computational overhead involved with Daubechies wavelet filters but are produced better results. Like even missing details i.e., higher frequency components are picked by them which are missed by other family of wavelet filters.

  10. Higher-density dyadic wavelet transform and its application

    Science.gov (United States)

    Qin, Yi; Tang, Baoping; Wang, Jiaxu

    2010-04-01

    This paper proposes a higher-density dyadic wavelet transform with two generators, whose corresponding wavelet filters are band-pass and high-pass. The wavelet coefficients at each scale in this case have the same length as the signal. This leads to a new redundant dyadic wavelet transform, which is strictly shift invariant and further increases the sampling in the time dimension. We describe the definition of higher-density dyadic wavelet transform, and discuss the condition of perfect reconstruction of the signal from its wavelet coefficients. The fast implementation algorithm for the proposed transform is given as well. Compared with the higher-density discrete wavelet transform, the proposed transform is shift invariant. Applications into signal denoising indicate that the proposed wavelet transform has better denoising performance than other commonly used wavelet transforms. In the end, various typical wavelet transforms are applied to analyze the vibration signals of two faulty roller bearings, the results show that the proposed wavelet transform can more effectively extract the fault characteristics of the roller bearings than the other wavelet transforms.

    Lehtinen, Joonas

    1999-10-01

    In this paper, a new prediction based method, predictive depth coding, for lossy wavelet image compression is presented. It compresses a wavelet pyramid composition by predicting the number of significant bits in each wavelet coefficient quantized by the universal scalar quantization and then by coding the prediction error with arithmetic coding. The adaptively found linear prediction context covers spatial neighbors of the coefficient to be predicted and the corresponding coefficients on lower scale and in the different orientation pyramids. In addition to the number of significant bits, the sign and the bits of non-zero coefficients are coded. The compression method is tested with a standard set of images and the results are compared with SFQ, SPIHT, EZW and context based algorithms. Even though the algorithm is very simple and it does not require any extra memory, the compression results are relatively good.

    2005-01-01

    In this paper a novel technique for the digital watermarking of still color images based on the concept of color space transform, wavelet fusion and image denoising is presented. Our algorithm transforms R, G, B colorspace to R′, G′, B′ color space firstly, which constructs three grey images, then computes the 2nd-level discretewavelet decomposition of the three grey images. Embedding watermark fuses a grey image (watermark) with each of the three images' wavelet coefficients, then transforms R′, G′, B′ color space to R, G, B color space to obtain thewatermarked color image. When extracting watermark, at first two grey images X1, X2 from the two of three wavelet coefficients is distilled, then Independent component analyses (ICA) is used to denoise and get grey image (watermark) W. The results of our test show the superior performance of the technique and the great potential of the watermarking of photographic imagery.

    Weniger, Michael; Friederichs, Petra

    2016-01-01

    Due to the emergence of new high resolution numerical weather prediction (NWP) models and the availability of new or more reliable remote sensing data, the importance of efficient spatial verification techniques is growing. Wavelet transforms offer an effective framework to decompose spatial data into separate (and possibly orthogonal) scales and directions. Most wavelet based spatial verification techniques have been developed or refined in the last decade and concentrate on assessing forecast performance (i.e. forecast skill or forecast error) on distinct physical scales. Particularly during the last five years, a significant growth in meteorological applications could be observed. However, a comparison with other scientific fields such as feature detection, image fusion, texture analysis, or facial and biometric recognition, shows that there is still a considerable, currently unused potential to derive useful diagnostic information. In order to tab the full potential of wavelet analysis, we revise the stat...

    2005-01-01

    This paper presents an analysis on and experimental comparison of several typical fast algorithms for discrete wavelet transform (DWT) and their implementation in image compression, particularly the Mallat algorithm, FFT-based algorithm, Short-length based algorithm and Lifting algorithm. The principles, structures and computational complexity of these algorithms are explored in details respectively. The results of the experiments for comparison are consistent to those simulated by MATLAB. It is found that there are limitations in the implementation of DWT. Some algorithms are workable only for special wavelet transform, lacking in generality. Above all, the speed of wavelet transform, as the governing element to the speed of image processing, is in fact the retarding factor for real-time image processing.

    Full Text Available Image denoising is one of the most significant tasks especially in medical image processing, where the original images are of poor quality due the noises and artifacts introduces by the acquisition systems. In this paper, we propose a new image denoising scheme by modifying the wavelet coefficients using soft-thresholding method, we present a comparative study of different wavelet denoising techniques for CT images and we discuss the obtained results. The denoising process rejects noise by thresholding in the wavelet domain. The performance is evaluated using Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio (PSNR and Mean Squared Error (MSE. Finally, Gaussian filter provides better PSNR and lower MSE values. Hence, we conclude that this filter is an efficient one for preprocessing medical images.

    The scientific satellite SST (Space Solar Telescope) is an important research project strongly supported by the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Every day,SST acquires 50 GB of data (after processing) but only 10GB can be transmitted to the ground because of limited time of satellite passage and limited channel volume.Therefore, the data must be compressed before transmission. Wavelets analysis is a new technique developed over the last 10 years, with great potential of application.We start with a brief introduction to the essential principles of wavelet analysis,and then describe the main idea of embedded zerotree wavelet coding, used for compressing the SST images. The results show that this coding is adequate for the job.

    A description of spatially partially coherent imaging based on the propagation of second order spatial coherence wavelets and marginal power spectra (Wigner distribution functions) is presented. In this dynamics, the spatial coherence wavelets will be affected by the system through its elementary transfer function. The consistency of the model with the both extreme cases of full coherent and incoherent imaging was proved. In the last case we obtained the classical concept of optical transfer function as a simple integral of the elementary transfer function. Furthermore, the elementary incoherent response function was introduced as the Fourier transform of the elementary transfer function. It describes the propagation of spatial coherence wavelets form each object point to each image point through a specific point on the pupil planes. The point spread function of the system was obtained by a simple integral of the elementary incoherent response function.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Provazník, I; Kozumplík, J

    1997-06-01

    An application of the wavelet transform to electrocardiography is described in the paper. The transform is used as a first stage of a lossy compression algorithm for efficient coding of rest ECG signals. The proposed technique is based on the decomposition of the ECG signal into a set of basic functions covering the time-frequency domain. Thus, non-stationary character of ECG data is considered. Some of the time-frequency signal components are removed because of their low influence to signal characteristics. Resulting components are efficiently coded by quantization, composition into a sequence of coefficients and compression by a run-length coder and a entropic Huffman coder. The proposed wavelet-based compression algorithm can compress data to average code length about 1 bit/sample. The algorithm can be also implemented to a real-time processing system when wavelet transform is computed by fast linear filters described in the paper.

    Huang, Ke; Aviyente, Selin

    2004-08-01

    Fingerprint verification has been deployed in a variety of security applications. Traditional minutiae detection based verification algorithms do not utilize the rich discriminatory texture structure of fingerprint images. Furthermore, minutiae detection requires substantial improvement of image quality and is thus error-prone. In this paper, we propose an algorithm for fingerprint verification using the statistics of subbands from wavelet analysis. One important feature for each frequency subband is the distribution of the wavelet coefficients, which can be modeled with a Generalized Gaussian Density (GGD) function. A fingerprint verification algorithm that combines the GGD parameters from different subbands is proposed to match two fingerprints. The verification algorithm in this paper is tested on a set of 1,200 fingerprint images. Experimental results indicate that wavelet analysis provides useful features for the task of fingerprint verification.

    2010-01-01

    In this paper we propose a new wavelet transform applicable to functions defined on graphs, high dimensional data and networks. The proposed method generalizes the Haar-like transform proposed in \\cite{gavish2010mwot}, and it is similarly defined via a hierarchical tree, which is assumed to capture the geometry and structure of the input data. It is applied to the data using a multiscale filtering and decimation scheme, which can employ different wavelet filters. We propose a tree construction method which results in efficient representation of the input function in the transform domain. We show that the proposed transform is more efficient than both the 1D and 2D separable wavelet transforms in representing images. We also explore the application of the proposed transform to image denoising, and show that combined with a subimage averaging scheme, it achieves denoising results which are similar to the ones obtained with the K-SVD algorithm.

    Hirn, Matthew; Poilvert, Nicolas

    2016-01-01

    We introduce multiscale invariant dictionaries to estimate quantum chemical energies of organic molecules, from training databases. Molecular energies are invariant to isometric atomic displacements, and are Lipschitz continuous to molecular deformations. Similarly to density functional theory (DFT), the molecule is represented by an electronic density function. A multiscale invariant dictionary is calculated with wavelet scattering invariants. It cascades a first wavelet transform which separates scales, with a second wavelet transform which computes interactions across scales. Sparse scattering regressions give state of the art results over two databases of organic planar molecules. On these databases, the regression error is of the order of the error produced by DFT codes, but at a fraction of the computational cost.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Yang, Lei; Wu, Zhen; Zhong, Zheqiang; Zhang, Bin

    2017-02-01

    In a spectral beam combining (SBC) system, crosstalk always happens because stray lights are inevitable due to fabrication errors of optical components and 'smile' effect of laser arrays. Two kinds of crosstalk, including the crosstalk generated between two adjacent emitters of the laser array (ad-crosstalk) and that generated between two non-adjacent emitters (non-ad-crosstalk), have been analyzed. The equivalent light of the crosstalk model has been proposed, and the propagation model of the SBC system with the crosstalk has been built up. On this basis, influences of above two kinds of the crosstalk on the combined beam have been numerically simulated and discussed in detail. The results show that the wavelength composition of the combined beam varies evidently owing to the existence of the crosstalk. With the increasing of the crosstalk intensity, the beam quality of the combined beam degrades, and the side lobes of intensity distribution of the combined beam become more and more obvious. Furthermore, the influence of the non-ad-crosstalk on the beam quality is more serious than that of the ad-crosstalk.

  6. Applications of Multidimensional Wavelet Filtering in Geosciences

    2001-12-01

    Today we are facing a severe crisis of being flooded with huge amounts of data being generated by higher-resolution numerical simulations , laboratory instrumentions and satellite observations. Since there is no way one can visualize the full data set, we must extract essential features from the data-set. One way of addressing this problem is to use mathematical filters , such as multidimensional wavelets. We present imaging results in the geosciences based on using multidimensional Gaussian wavelets as a filter. This approach has been applied to a wide-range of problems, which span from the nanoscale in mineral surfaces imaged by atomic force microscopy to hundreds of kilometers in geoidal undulations determined from satellite orbits or small-scale plumes in high Rayleigh number convection. Besides decomposing the field under consideration into various scales , called a scalogram, we have also constructed two-dimensional maps, delineating the spatial distributions of the maximum of the wavelet transformed quantity E-max and the associated local wave-number. We have generalized the application of multidimensional wavelets to quantify in terms of a two-dimensional map the correlation C for two multidimensional fields A and B. We will show a simple 2D isotropic wavelet-like transform for a spherical surface. We have analyzed the transformed geoid data with a band-pass filter in the spherical harmonic domain and have shown the equivalency of the two representations. This spherical wavelet-like filter can be applied also to problems in planetary science, such as the surface topography and geoid of other planetary bodies, like Mars.

  7. Characterization and simulation of gunfire with wavelets

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Smallwood, D.O.

    1998-09-01

    Gunfire is used as an example to show how the wavelet transform can be used to characterize and simulate nonstationary random events when an ensemble of events is available. The response of a structure to nearby firing of a high-firing rate gun has been characterized in several ways as a nonstationary random process. The methods all used some form of the discrete fourier transform. The current paper will explore a simpler method to describe the nonstationary random process in terms of a wavelet transform. As was done previously, the gunfire record is broken up into a sequence of transient waveforms each representing the response to the firing of a single round. The wavelet transform is performed on each of these records. The mean and standard deviation of the resulting wavelet coefficients describe the composite characteristics of the entire waveform. It is shown that the distribution of the wavelet coefficients is approximately Gaussian with a nonzero mean and that the standard deviation of the coefficients at different times and levels are approximately independent. The gunfire is simulated by generating realizations of records of a single-round firing by computing the inverse wavelet transform from Gaussian random coefficients with the same mean and standard deviation as those estimated from the previously discussed gunfire record. The individual realizations are then assembled into a realization of a time history of many rounds firing. A second-order correction of the probability density function (pdf) is accomplished with a zero memory nonlinear (ZMNL) function. The method is straightforward, easy to implement, and produces a simulated record very much like the original measured gunfire record.

The uniqueness of the extrapolation for continuous-time signals is examined, and sufficient conditions on signals and wavelet bases for the generalized PG (GPG) algorithm to converge are given. We also propose a discrete GPG algorithm for discrete-time signal extrapolation, and investigate its convergence. Numerical examples are given to illustrate the performance of the discrete GPG algorithm.

    The scalable image coding is an important objective of the future image coding technologies. In this paper, we present a kind of scalable image coding scheme based on wavelet transform. This method uses the famous EZW (Embedded Zero tree Wavelet) algorithm; we give a high-quality encoding to the ROI (region of interest) of the original image and a rough encoding to the rest. This method is applied well in limited memory space condition, and we encode the region of background according to the memory capacity. In this way, we can store the encoded image in limited memory space easily without losing its main information. Simulation results show it is effective.

    A new approach is proposed to improve the general identification algorithm of multidimensional systems using wavelet networks. The general algorithm involves mapping vector input into its norm to avoid problem of dimensionality in construction multidimensional wavelet basis functions. Thus, the basis functions are spherically symmetric without direction selectivity. In order to restore the direction selectivity, the improved approach weights the input variables before mapping it into a scalar form. The weights can be obtained using universal optimization algorithms. Generally, only local optimal weights are obtained. Even so, performance of identification can be improved.

    Using power spectral density (PSD) function to specify large aperture optical components' quality of laser system is universal. But it cannot provide effective guidance to eliminate certain frequency segment error.In order to solve this problem, two-dimensional discrete wavelet transform (2D-DWT) is used to separate frequency segment error and detect the corresponding region of certain frequency segment error, which is used as feedback to a machining process. The experimental results show that the corresponding region of certain frequency segment can be found and machining can be guided effectively by using wavelet.

Under some specific hypotheses relating the properties of the wavelets to the order of the involved operators, it is shown that an approximate solution can be built. This approximation is then stable and converges towards the exact solution. It is designed such that fast algorithms involving biorthogonal multi resolution analyses can be used to resolve the corresponding numerical problems. Detailed algorithms are provided as well as the results of numerical tests on partial differential equations defined on the bidimensional torus.

    The relations between Gaussian function and Γ-function is revealed first at one-dimensional situation. Then, the Fourier transformation of n-dimensional Gaussian function is deduced by a lemma. Following the train of thought in one-dimensional situation, the relation between n-dimensional Gaussian function and Γ-function is given. By these, the possibility of arbitrary derivative of an n-dimensional Gaussian function being a mother wavelet is indicated. The result will take some enlightening role in exploring the internal relations between Gaussian function and Γ-function as well as in finding high-dimensional mother wavelets.

    The method of quantization noise control of audio coding in the wavelet domain is proposed. Using the inverse Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT), it converts the masking threshold coming from MPEG psycho-acoustic model in the frequency domain to the signal in the time domain; the Discrete Wavelet Packet Transform (DWPT) is performed; the energy in each subband is regarded as the maximum allowed quantization noise energy. The experimental result shows that the proposed method can attain the nearly transparent audio quality below 64kbps for the most testing audio signals.

  20. Feasibility of using Hybrid Wavelet Collocation - Brinkman Penalization Method for Shape and Topology Optimization

    Science.gov (United States)

    Vasilyev, Oleg V.; Gazzola, Mattia; Koumoutsakos, Petros

    2009-11-01

    In this talk we discuss preliminary results for the use of hybrid wavelet collocation - Brinkman penalization approach for shape and topology optimization of fluid flows. Adaptive wavelet collocation method tackles the problem of efficiently resolving a fluid flow on a dynamically adaptive computational grid in complex geometries (where grid resolution varies both in space and time time), while Brinkman volume penalization allows easy variation of flow geometry without using body-fitted meshes by simply changing the shape of the penalization region. The use of Brinkman volume penalization approach allow seamless transition from shape to topology optimization by combining it with level set approach and increasing the size of the optimization space. The approach is demonstrated for shape optimization of a variety of fluid flows by optimizing single cost function (time averaged Drag coefficient) using covariance matrix adaptation (CMA) evolutionary algorithm.

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper develops a modified variational iteration method coupled with the Legendre wavelets, which can be used for the efficient numerical solution of nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs. The approximate solutions of PDEs are calculated in the form of a series whose components are computed by applying a recursive relation. Block pulse functions are used to calculate the Legendre wavelets coefficient matrices of the nonlinear terms. The main advantage of the new method is that it can avoid solving the nonlinear algebraic system and symbolic computation. Furthermore, the developed vector-matrix form makes it computationally efficient. The results show that the proposed method is very effective and easy to implement.

    2002-01-01

    This paper deals with the design and implementation of an image transform coding algorithm based on the integer wavelet transform (IWT). First of all, criteria are proposed for the selection of optimal factorizations of the wavelet filter polyphase matrix to be employed within the lifting scheme. The obtained results lead to the IWT implementations with very satisfactory lossless and lossy compression performance. Then, the effects of finite precision representation of the lifting coefficients on the compression performance are analyzed, showing that, in most cases, a very small number of bits can be employed for the mantissa keeping the performance degradation very limited. Stemming from these results, a VLSI architecture is proposed for the IWT implementation, capable of achieving very high frame rates with moderate gate complexity.

    Full Text Available Wavelet transform and wavelet analysis are powerful mathematical tools for many problems. Wavelet also can be applied in numerical analysis. In this paper, we apply Haar wavelet method to solve wave-like equation with initial and boundary conditions known. The fundamental idea of Haar wavelet method is to convert the differential equations into a group of algebraic equations, which involves a finite number or variables. The results and graph show that the proposed way is quite reasonable when compared to exact solution.

    The lifting scheme is a custom-design construction of Biorthogonal wavelets, a fast and efficient method to realize wavelet transform, which provides a wider range of application and efficiently reduces the computing time with its particular frame. This paper aims at introducing the second generation wavelets, begins with traditional Mallat algorithms, illustrates the lifting scheme and brings out the detail steps in the construction of Biorthogonal wavelets. Because of isolating the degrees of freedom remaining the biorthogonality relations, we can fully control over the lifting operators to design the wavelet for a particular application, such as increasing the number of the vanishing moments.

    2015-12-21

    This paper introduces a hybrid feature extraction method applied to mass spectrometry (MS) data for cancer classification. Haar wavelets are employed to transform MS data into orthogonal wavelet coefficients. The most prominent discriminant wavelets are then selected by genetic algorithm (GA) to form feature sets. The combination of wavelets and GA yields highly distinct feature sets that serve as inputs to classification algorithms. Experimental results show the robustness and significant dominance of the wavelet-GA against competitive methods. The proposed method therefore can be applied to cancer classification models that are useful as real clinical decision support systems for medical practitioners.

    By using netflow traffic collecting technology, some traffic data for analysis are collected from a next generation network (NGN) operator. To build a wavelet basis neural network (NN), the Sigmoid function is replaced with the wavelet in NN. Then the wavelet multiresolution analysis method is used to decompose the traffic signal, and the decomposed component sequences are employed to train the NN. By using the methods, an NGN traffic prediction model is built to predict one day's traffic. The experimental results show that the traffic prediction method of wavelet NN is more accurate than that without using wavelet in the NGN traffic forecasting.

    An open-loop fiber optic gyro (FOG) testing system is designed. The noise characteristic of open-loop fiber optic gyro signals is analyzed. The wavelet eliminating noise method is discussed and compared with other methods, such as smoothing and low-pass filter methods. Results indicate that the wavelet eliminating noise method can satisfy the measuring demand of the FOG weak output signal with noise disturbing. The wavelet analysis method can efficiently eliminate the noise and reserve the information of the signal. The eliminating noise effect of using different wavelet base functions is compared. The effectiveness of multiresolution wavelet analyses of eliminating noise is proved by experimental results.

    2003-01-01

    With the scaling development of the minimum lithographic size,the scaling trend of CMOS imager pixel size and fill factor has been computed according to the Moore rule.When the CMOS minimum lithographic feature scales down to 0.35 μm,the CCD image pixel size is not so easy to be reduced and but the CMOS image pixel size benefits from the scaling minimum lithographic feature. However, when the CMOS technology is downscaled to or under 0.35 μm,the fabrication of CMOS image sensors will be limited by the standard CMOS process in both ways of shallow trench isolation and source/drain junction,which results in pixel crosstalk.The impact of the crosstalk on the active pixel CMOS image sensor is analyzed based on the technology scaling.Some suppressed crosstalk methods have been reviewed.The best way is that combining the advantages of CMOS and SOI technology to fabricate the image sensors will reduce the pixel crosstalk.

    High density 3-dimensional (3D) crossbar resistive random access memory (RRAM) is one of the major focus of the new age technologies. To compete with the ultra-high density NAND and NOR memories, understanding of reliability mechanisms and scaling potential of 3D RRAM crossbar array is needed. Thermal crosstalk is one of the most critical effects that should be considered in 3D crossbar array application. The Joule heat generated inside the RRAM device will determine the switching behavior itself, and for dense memory arrays, the temperature surrounding may lead to a consequent resistance degradation of neighboring devices. In this work, thermal crosstalk effect and scaling potential under thermal effect in 3D RRAM crossbar array are systematically investigated. It is revealed that the reset process is dominated by transient thermal effect in 3D RRAM array. More importantly, thermal crosstalk phenomena could deteriorate device retention performance and even lead to data storage state failure from LRS (low resistance state) to HRS (high resistance state) of the disturbed RRAM cell. In addition, the resistance state degradation will be more serious with continuously scaling down the feature size. Possible methods for alleviating thermal crosstalk effect while further advancing the scaling potential are also provided and verified by numerical simulation.

    2014-12-29

    A silicon arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) with low channel crosstalk was demonstrated by using ultra-short parabolic tapers to connect the AWG's free propagation regions and single-mode waveguides. The tapers satisfied the requirements of low-loss mode conversion and lower channel crosstalk from the coupling of neighboring waveguides in the AWGs. In this work, three different tapers, including parabolic tapers, linear tapers, and exponential tapers, were theoretically analyzed and experimentally investigated for a comparison of their effects when implemented in AWGs. The experimental results showed that the AWG with parabolic tapers had a crosstalk improvement up to 7.1 dB compared with the others. Based on the advantages of parabolic tapers, a 400-GHz 8 × 8 cyclic AWG with 2.4 dB on-chip loss and -17.6~-25.1 dB crosstalk was fabricated using a simple one-step etching process. Its performance was comparable with that of existing AWGs with bi-level tapers, which require complicated two-step etching fabrication processes.

    2014-11-01

    Full Text Available Image denoising using wavelet transform has been successful as wavelet transform generates a large number of small coefficients and a small number of large coefficients. Basic denoising algorithm that using the wavelet transform consists of three steps – first computing the wavelet transform of the noisy image, thresholding is performed on the detail coefficients in order to remove noise and finally inverse wavelet transform of the modified coefficients is taken. This paper reviews the state of art methods of image denoising using wavelet thresholding. An Experimental analysis of wavelet based methods Visu Shrink, Sure Shrink, Bayes Shrink, Prob Shrink, Block Shrink and Neigh Shrink Sure is performed. These wavelet based methods are also compared with spatial domain methods like median filter and wiener filter. Results are evaluated on the basis of Peak Signal to Noise Ratio and visual quality of images. In the experiment, wavelet based methods perform better than spatial domain methods. In wavelet domain, recent methods like prob shrink, block shrink and neigh shrink sure performed better as compared to other wavelet based methods.

    2003-09-01

    A neural-network-based framework has been developed to search for an optimal wavelet kernel that can be used for a specific image processing task. In this paper, a linear convolution neural network was employed to seek a wavelet that minimizes errors and maximizes compression efficiency for an image or a defined image pattern such as microcalcifications in mammograms and bone in computed tomography (CT) head images. We have used this method to evaluate the performance of tap-4 wavelets on mammograms, CTs, magnetic resonance images, and Lena images. We found that the Daubechies wavelet or those wavelets with similar filtering characteristics can produce the highest compression efficiency with the smallest mean-square-error for many image patterns including general image textures as well as microcalcifications in digital mammograms. However, the Haar wavelet produces the best results on sharp edges and low-noise smooth areas. We also found that a special wavelet whose low-pass filter coefficients are 0.32252136, 0.85258927, 1.38458542, and -0.14548269) produces the best preservation outcomes in all tested microcalcification features including the peak signal-to-noise ratio, the contrast and the figure of merit in the wavelet lossy compression scheme. Having analyzed the spectrum of the wavelet filters, we can find the compression outcomes and feature preservation characteristics as a function of wavelets. This newly developed optimization approach can be generalized to other image analysis applications where a wavelet decomposition is employed.

    1994-04-01

    In a series of papers, Donoho and Johnstone develop a powerful theory based on wavelets for extracting non-smooth signals from noisy data. Several nonlinear smoothing algorithms are presented which provide high performance for removing Gaussian noise from a wide range of spatially inhomogeneous signals. However, like other methods based on the linear wavelet transform, these algorithms are very sensitive to certain types of non-Gaussian noise, such as outliers. In this paper, we develop outlier resistance wavelet transforms. In these transforms, outliers and outlier patches are localized to just a few scales. By using the outlier resistant wavelet transforms, we improve upon the Donoho and Johnstone nonlinear signal extraction methods. The outlier resistant wavelet algorithms are included with the S+Wavelets object-oriented toolkit for wavelet analysis.

    Full Text Available In this study, a comparison of various existing satellite image resolution enhancement techniques in wavelet domain is done. Each method is analysed quantitatively and visually. There are various wavelet domain based methods such as Wavelet Zero Padding, Dual Tree-Complex Wavelet Transform, Discrete Wavelet Transform, Cycle Spinning and Undecimated Wavelet Transform. On the basis of analysis, the most efficient method is proposed. The algorithms take the low resolution image as the input image and then wavelet transformation using daubechies (db3 is used to decompose the input image into different sub band images containing high and low frequency component. Then these subband images along with the input image are interpolated followed by combining all these images to generate a new resolution enhanced image by an inverse process.

    Introduced herein is the use of the wavelet transform in the field of seismic exploration. Among applications so far made, there are signal filtering, break point detection, data compression, and the solution of finite differential equations in the wavelet domain. In the field of data compression in particular, some examples of practical application have been introduced already. In seismic exploration, it is expected that the wavelet transform will separate signals and noises in data in a way different from the Fourier transform. The continuous wavelet transform displays time change in frequency easy to read, but is not suitable for the analysis and processing large quantities of data. On the other hand, the discrete wavelet transform, being an orthogonal transform, can handle large quantities of data. As compared with the conventional Fourier transform that handles only the frequency domain, the wavelet transform handles the time domain as well as the frequency domain, and therefore is more convenient in handling unsteady signals. 9 ref., 8 figs.

  2. Understanding wavelet analysis and filters for engineering applications

    Science.gov (United States)

    Parameswariah, Chethan Bangalore

    Wavelets are signal-processing tools that have been of interest due to their characteristics and properties. Clear understanding of wavelets and their properties are a key to successful applications. Many theoretical and application-oriented papers have been written. Yet the choice of a right wavelet for a given application is an ongoing quest that has not been satisfactorily answered. This research has successfully identified certain issues, and an effort has been made to provide an understanding of wavelets by studying the wavelet filters in terms of their pole-zero and magnitude-phase characteristics. The magnitude characteristics of these filters have flat responses in both the pass band and stop band. The phase characteristics are almost linear. It is interesting to observe that some wavelets have the exact same magnitude characteristics but their phase responses vary in the linear slopes. An application of wavelets for fast detection of the fault current in a transformer and distinguishing from the inrush current clearly shows the advantages of the lower slope and fewer coefficients---Daubechies wavelet D4 over D20. This research has been published in the IEEE transactions on Power systems and is also proposed as an innovative method for protective relaying techniques. For detecting the frequency composition of the signal being analyzed, an understanding of the energy distribution in the output wavelet decompositions is presented for different wavelet families. The wavelets with fewer coefficients in their filters have more energy leakage into adjacent bands. The frequency bandwidth characteristics display flatness in the middle of the pass band confirming that the frequency of interest should be in the middle of the frequency band when performing a wavelet transform. Symlets exhibit good flatness with minimum ripple but the transition regions do not have sharper cut off. The number of wavelet levels and their frequency ranges are dependent on the two

    A parallel adaptive wavelet collocation method for solving a large class of Partial Differential Equations is presented. The parallelization is achieved by developing an asynchronous parallel wavelet transform, which allows one to perform parallel wavelet transform and derivative calculations with only one data synchronization at the highest level of resolution. The data are stored using tree-like structure with tree roots starting at a priori defined level of resolution. Both static and dynamic domain partitioning approaches are developed. For the dynamic domain partitioning, trees are considered to be the minimum quanta of data to be migrated between the processes. This allows fully automated and efficient handling of non-simply connected partitioning of a computational domain. Dynamic load balancing is achieved via domain repartitioning during the grid adaptation step and reassigning trees to the appropriate processes to ensure approximately the same number of grid points on each process. The parallel efficiency of the approach is discussed based on parallel adaptive wavelet-based Coherent Vortex Simulations of homogeneous turbulence with linear forcing at effective non-adaptive resolutions up to 2048{sup 3} using as many as 2048 CPU cores.

  6. Spatial verification using wavelet transforms: a review

    Weniger, Michael; Kapp, Florian; Friederichs, Petra

    2017-01-01

    Due to the emergence of new high resolution numerical weather prediction (NWP) models and the availability of new or more reliable remote sensing data, the importance of efficient spatial verification techniques is growing. Wavelet transforms offer an effective framework to decompose spatial data into separate (and possibly orthogonal) scales and directions. Most wavelet based spatial verification techniques have been developed or refined in the last decade and concentrate on assessing forecast performance (i.e. forecast skill or forecast error) on distinct physical scales. Particularly during the last five years, a significant growth in meteorological applications could be observed. However, a comparison with other scientific fields such as feature detection, image fusion, texture analysis, or facial and biometric recognition, shows that there is still a considerable, currently unused potential to derive useful diagnostic information. In order to tab the full potential of wavelet analysis, we revise the state-of-the art in one- and two-dimensional wavelet analysis and its application with emphasis on spatial verification. We further use a technique developed for texture analysis in the context of high-resolution quantitative precipitation forecasts, which is able to assess structural characteristics of the precipitation fields and allows efficient clustering of ensemble data.

  7. Wave Forecasting Using Neuro Wavelet Technique

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available In the present work a hybrid Neuro-Wavelet Technique is used for forecasting waves up to 6 hr, 12 hr, 18 hr and 24 hr in advance using hourly measured significant wave heights at an NDBC station 41004 near the east coast of USA. The NW Technique is employed by combining two methods, Discrete Wavelet Transform and Artificial Neural Networks. The hourly data of previously measured significant wave heights spanning over 2 years from 2010 and 2011 is used to calibrate and test the models. The discrete wavelet transform of NWT analyzes frequency of signal with respect to time at different scales. It decomposes time series into low (approximate and high (detail frequency components. The decomposition of approximate can be carried out up to desired multiple levels in order to provide more detail and approximate components which provides relatively smooth varying amplitude series. The neural network is trained with decorrelated approximate and detail wavelet coefficients. The outputs of networks during testing are reconstructed back using inverse DWT. The results were judged by drawing the wave plots, scatter plots and other error measures. The developed models show reasonable accuracy in prediction of significant wave heights from 6 to 24 hours. To compare the results traditional ANN models were also developed at the same location using the same data and for same time interval.

  8. Climate wavelet spectrum estimation under chronology uncertainties

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lenoir, G.; Crucifix, M.

    2012-04-01

    Several approaches to estimate the chronology of palaeoclimate records exist in the literature: simple interpolation between the tie points, orbital tuning, alignment on other data... These techniques generate a single estimate of the chronology. More recently, statistical generators of chronologies have appeared (e.g. OXCAL, BCHRON) allowing the construction of thousands of chronologies given the tie points and their uncertainties. These techniques are based on advanced statistical methods. They allow one to take into account the uncertainty of the timing of each climatic event recorded into the core. On the other hand, when interpreting the data, scientists often rely on time series analysis, and especially on spectral analysis. Given that paleo-data are composed of a large spectrum of frequencies, are non-stationary and are highly noisy, the continuous wavelet transform turns out to be a suitable tool to analyse them. The wavelet periodogram, in particular, is helpful to interpret visually the time-frequency behaviour of the data. Here, we combine statistical methods to generate chronologies with the power of continuous wavelet transform. Some interesting applications then come up: comparison of time-frequency patterns between two proxies (extracted from different cores), between a proxy and a statistical dynamical model, and statistical estimation of phase-lag between two filtered signals. All these applications consider explicitly the uncertainty in the chronology. The poster presents mathematical developments on the wavelet spectrum estimation under chronology uncertainties as well as some applications to Quaternary data based on marine and ice cores.

  9. Characterization and Simulation of Gunfire with Wavelets

    1999-01-01

    Full Text Available Gunfire is used as an example to show how the wavelet transform can be used to characterize and simulate nonstationary random events when an ensemble of events is available. The structural response to nearby firing of a high-firing rate gun has been characterized in several ways as a nonstationary random process. The current paper will explore a method to describe the nonstationary random process using a wavelet transform. The gunfire record is broken up into a sequence of transient waveforms each representing the response to the firing of a single round. A wavelet transform is performed on each of these records. The gunfire is simulated by generating realizations of records of a single-round firing by computing an inverse wavelet transform from Gaussian random coefficients with the same mean and standard deviation as those estimated from the previously analyzed gunfire record. The individual records are assembled into a realization of many rounds firing. A second-order correction of the probability density function is accomplished with a zero memory nonlinear function. The method is straightforward, easy to implement, and produces a simulated record much like the measured gunfire record.

  12. Wavelet fractal character of overlapping signal

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2003-01-01

    A new method based on the combining of the wavelet theory with the fractal theory and named wavelet fractal peak position method (WFPPM) is introduced to extract the number of the components and the relevant peak positions from overlapping signals in chemistry. The overlapping signal is first transformed into continuous wavelet transform value of time domain in certain dilation range via continuous wavelet transform (CWT), and then changed into capacity dimensions (Dc). The number of the components and the relevant positions of overlapping peaks can be identified easily according to the change of Dc. An investigation concerning the influence of different dilation ranges on the peak positions extracted by WFPPM is also provided. Studies show that WFPPM is and efficient tool for extracting the peak positions and identifying the number of peaks from unresolved signals, even wht\\en this kind of overlapping is significantly serious. Relative errors of less than 1.0% in peak are found when WFPPM is used in the processing of the cadmium(Ⅱ)-indium(Ⅲ) mixture system. The analytical results demonstrate that the desired peak positions can be extracted conveniently, accurately and rapidly from and unresolved signal via WFPPM. Tremendous developing and applications based on currently reported WFPPM in extracting overlapping signals would be expected in the near futrue.

    2005-01-01

    An analysis of the received signal of array antennas shows that the received signal has multi-resolution characteristics, and hence the wavelet packet theory can be used to detect the signal. By emplying wavelet packet theory to adaptive beamforming, a wavelet packet transform-based adaptive beamforming algorithm (WP-ABF) is proposed . This WP-ABF algorithm uses wavelet packet transform as the preprocessing, and the wavelet packet transformed signal uses least mean square algorithm to implement the adaptive beamforming. White noise can be wiped off under wavelet packet transform according to the different characteristics of signal and white under the wavelet packet transform. Theoretical analysis and simulations demonstrate that the proposed WP-ABF algorithm converges faster than the conventional adaptive beamforming algorithm and the wavelet transform-based beamforming algorithm. Simulation results also reveal that the convergence of the algorithm relates closely to the wavelet base and series; that is, the algorithm convergence gets better with the increasing of series, and for the same series of wavelet base the convergence gets better with the increasing of regularity.

    Hepatocarcinogenesis is a complex multistep process in which many different molecular pathways have been implicated. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is refractory to conventional chemotherapeutic agents, and the new targeted therapies are meeting with limited success. Interreceptor crosstalk and the positive feedback between different signaling systems are emerging as mechanisms of targeted therapy resistance. The identification of such interactions is therefore of particular relevance to improve therapeutic efficacy. Among the different signaling pathways activated in hepatocarcinogenesis the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) system plays a prominent role, being recognized as a “signaling hub” where different extracellular growth and survival signals converge. EGFR can be transactivated in response to multiple heterologous ligands through the physical interaction with multiple receptors, the activity of intracellular kinases or the shedding of EGFR-ligands. In this article we review the crosstalk between the EGFR and other signaling pathways that could be relevant to liver cancer development and treatment.

    As the technology advances into deep sub-micron era, crosstalk reduction is of paramount importance for signal integrity. Simultaneous shield insertion and net ordering (SINO) has been shown to be effective to reduce both capacitive and inductive couplings. As it introduces extra shields, area minimization is also critical for an efficient SINO algorithm.In this paper, three novel algorithms using fewer shields to solve crosstalk reduction problem with RLC noise constraint are proposed, namely, net coloring (NC), efficient middle shield insertion (EMSI) and NC+EMSI two-step algorithm. Compared with the corresponding algorithms in previous work, these algorithms can reduce shielding area up to 25.77%, 46.19%, and7.17%, respectively, with short runtime.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Acute kidney injury (AKI is a common complication during inpatient hospitalization, and clinical outcomes remain poor despite advancements in renal replacement therapy. AKI in the setting of multiple organ failure (MOF remains a formidable challenge to clinicians and incurs an unacceptably high mortality rate. Kidney ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI incites a proinflammatory cascade and releases cellular and soluble mediators with systemic implications for remote organ injury. Evidence from preclinical models cites mechanisms of organ crosstalk during ischemic AKI including the expression of cellular adhesion molecules, lymphocyte trafficking, release of proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines, and modification of the host innate and adaptive immune response systems. In this paper, the influence of kidney IRI on systemic inflammation and distant organ injury will be examined. Recent experimental data and evolving concepts of organ crosstalk during ischemic AKI will also be discussed in detail.

    2010-12-01

    MAP kinase (MAPK) modules are conserved three-kinase cascades that serve central roles in intracellular signal transduction in eukaryotic cells. MAPK pathways of different inputs and outputs use overlapping sets of signaling components. In yeast, for example, three MAPK pathways (pheromone response, filamentous growth response, and osmostress adaptation) all use the same Ste11 MAPK kinase kinase (MAPKKK). How undesirable leakage of signal, or cross-talk, is prevented between these pathways has been a subject of intensive study. This review discusses recent findings from yeast that indicate that there is no single mechanism, but that a combination of four general strategies (docking interactions, scaffold proteins, cross-pathway inhibition, and kinetic insulation) are utilized for the prevention of cross-talk between any two MAPK modules.

  3. Alien Crosstalk Cancellation for Multipair Digital Subscriber Line Systems

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available An overview of alien crosstalk cancellation for DSL systems with multiple pairs is here presented. It is shown that when a common crosstalk source affects the receivers of multiple pairs, the noise exhibits a certain correlation among the pairs. In a DMT system, the frequency-domain noise samples are most strongly correlated between pairs when they correspond to the same tone. Thus, noise decorrelation algorithms applied independently for each tone can provide significant performance enhancements. Three possible methods are described for noise decorrelation, one is suitable for two-sided coordination and two are suited for receiver coordination among the pairs. It is theoretically proven that the data-rate performance of these three methods is identical from the perspective of the sum rate over all pairs. Simulation results corresponding to an ADSL2+ two-pair system with a T1 disturber are presented to illustrate the noise correlation property and to indicate the potential performance benefits.

    Full Text Available This paper examined and discussed a Meshless Wavelet Galerkin Method (MWGM formulation for a first-order shear deformable beam, the properties of the MWGM, the differences between the MWGM and EFG, and programming methods for the MWGM. The first-order shear deformable beam (FSDB consists of a pair of second-order elliptic differential equations. The weak forms of two differential equations are deduced using Hat wavelet series. The exact integration and reduced integration were used to analyze the problems. Some indeterminate beam problems are considered. Condition numbers of the stiffness matrix were analyzed with exact integration and reduced integration for two cases of these problems. Consequently, the results were converged on the analytic solutions. The shear-locking phenomenon also occurred in the MWGM as it occurs in the conventional FEM. The stiffness matrix calculated from the reduced integration causes a similar numerical error to the stiffness matrix calculated from the exact integration in the MWGM. The MWGM showed desirable results in the examples.

    Low light level (LLL) image communication has received more and more attentions in the night vision field along with the advance of the importance of image communication. LLL image compression technique is the key of LLL image wireless transmission. LLL image, which is different from the common visible light image, has its special characteristics. As still image compression, we propose in this paper a wavelet-based image compression algorithm suitable for LLL image. Because the information in the LLL image is significant, near lossless data compression is required. The LLL image is compressed based on improved EZW (Embedded Zerotree Wavelet) algorithm. We encode the lowest frequency subband data using DPCM (Differential Pulse Code Modulation). All the information in the lowest frequency is kept. Considering the HVS (Human Visual System) characteristics and the LLL image characteristics, we detect the edge contour in the high frequency subband image first using templet and then encode the high frequency subband data using EZW algorithm. And two guiding matrix is set to avoid redundant scanning and replicate encoding of significant wavelet coefficients in the above coding. The experiment results show that the decoded image quality is good and the encoding time is shorter than that of the original EZW algorithm.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2012-10-01

    Full Text Available Part 1 of this paper represents an introduction into the multi-resolution wavelet analysis. The wavelet-based analysis is an exciting new problem-solving tool used by mathematicians, scientists and engineers. In the paper, the authors try to present the fundamental elements of the multi-resolution wavelet analysis in a way that is accessible to an engineer, a scientist and an applied mathematician both as a theoretical approach and as a potential practical method of solving problems (particularly, boundary problems of structural mechanics and mathematical physics. The main goal of the contemporary wavelet research is to generate a set of basic functions (or general expansion functions and transformations that will provide an informative, efficient and useful description of a function or a signal. Another central idea is that of multi-resolution whereby decomposition of a signal represents the resolution of the detail. The multi-resolution decomposition seems to separate components of a signal in a way that is superior to most other methods of analysis, processing or compression. Due to the ability of the discrete wavelet transformation technique to decompose a signal at different independent scaling levels and to do it in a very flexible way, wavelets can be named "the microscopes of mathematics". Indeed, the use of the wavelet analysis and wavelet transformations requires a new point of view and a new method of interpreting representations.

    The identification of a major class of innate immune receptors, termed pattern recognition receptors (PRRs), has boosted research on innate pathogen recognition. The immune response to a specific pathogen is not restricted to the recognition by one type of PRR or activation of a single cell type, but instead comprises complex collaborations between different receptors, cells and signal mediators. Here we will discuss the cross-talk between PRRs involved in fungal recognition, focusing on the molecular interactions occurring at the plasma membrane.

  8. Theory of multisource crosstalk reduction by phase-encoded statics

    KAUST Repository

    Schuster, Gerard T.

    2011-03-01

    Formulas are derived that relate the strength of the crosstalk noise in supergather migration images to the variance of time, amplitude and polarity shifts in encoding functions. A supergather migration image is computed by migrating an encoded supergather, where the supergather is formed by stacking a large number of encoded shot gathers. Analysis reveals that for temporal source static shifts in each shot gather, the crosstalk noise is exponentially reduced with increasing variance of the static shift and the square of source frequency. This is not too surprising because larger time shifts lead to less correlation between traces in different shot gathers, and so should tend to reduce the crosstalk noise. Analysis also reveals that combining both polarity and time statics is a superior encoding strategy compared to using either polarity statics or time statics alone. Signal-to-noise (SNR) estimates show that for a standard migration image and for an image computed by migrating a phase-encoded supergather; here, G is the number of traces in a shot gather, I is the number of stacking iterations in the supergather and S is the number of encoded/blended shot gathers that comprise the supergather. If the supergather can be uniformly divided up into Q unique sub-supergathers, then the resulting SNR of the final image is, which means that we can enhance image quality but at the expense of Q times more cost. The importance of these formulas is that they provide a precise understanding between different phase encoding strategies and image quality. Finally, we show that iterative migration of phase-encoded supergathers is a special case of passive seismic interferometry. We suggest that the crosstalk noise formulas can be helpful in designing optimal strategies for passive seismic interferometry and efficient extraction of Green\\'s functions from simulated supergathers. © 2011 The Authors Geophysical Journal International © 2011 RAS.

    In this paper, we propose a new technique of Electrocardiogram (ECG) signal de-noising based on thresholding of the coefficients obtained from the application of the Forward Wavelet Transform Translation Invariant (FWT_TI) to each Bionic Wavelet coefficient. The De-noise De-noised ECG is obtained from the application of the inverse of BWT (BWT−1) to the de-noise de-noised bionic wavelet coefficients. For evaluating this new proposed de-noising technique, we have compared it to a thresholding technique in the FWT_TI domain. Preliminary tests of the application of the two de-noising techniques were constructed on a number of ECG signals taken from MIT-BIH database. The obtained results from Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) and Mean Square Error (MSE) computations showed that our proposed de-noising technique outperforms the second technique. We have also compared the proposed technique to the thresholding technique in the bionic wavelet domain and this comparison was performed by SNR improvement computing. The obtained results from this evaluation showed that the proposed technique also outperforms the de-noising technique based on bionic wavelet coefficients thresholding.

    Full Text Available A novel method to generate time series of vibration waves is proposed in the paper. Considering the frequency band energy as the criterion, synthesis formulas for fluctuating wind pressure and earthquake ground motion are developed in terms of Daubechies wavelet and Harr wavelet respectively. The wavelet reconstruction method is applicable to both stationary and non-stationary process simulation. Theoretically, for non-stationary (such as seismic process synthesis, it has a better non-stationarity in time-frequency domain than the traditional trigonometric series. Influence of wavelet delamination number and wavelet function type is also analyzed. Numerical results show that the synthesis of vibration waves based on wavelet reconstruction method contains main components of vibration, and can reflect the main properties of practical vibrations.

    2016-01-01

    Here, the wavelet analysis has been investigated to improve the quality of myoelectric signal before use in prosthetic design. Effective Surface Electromyogram (SEMG) signals were estimated by first decomposing the obtained signal using wavelet transform and then analysing the decomposed coefficients by threshold methods. With the appropriate choice of wavelet, it is possible to reduce interference noise effectively in the SEMG signal. However, the most effective wavelet for SEMG denoising is chosen by calculating the root mean square value and signal power values. The combined results of root mean square value and signal power shows that wavelet db4 performs the best denoising among the wavelets. Furthermore, time domain and frequency domain methods were applied for SEMG signal analysis to investigate the effect of muscle-force contraction on the signal. It was found that, during sustained contractions, the mean frequency (MNF) and median frequency (MDF) increase as muscle force levels increase.

    2017-02-01

    In this work, a fingerprint spoof detection method using an extended feature, namely Wavelet-based Local Binary Pattern (Wavelet-LBP) is introduced. Conventional wavelet-based methods calculate wavelet energy of sub-band images as the feature for discrimination while we propose to use Local Binary Pattern (LBP) operation to capture the local appearance of the sub-band images instead. The fingerprint image is firstly decomposed by two-dimensional discrete wavelet transform (2D-DWT), and then LBP is applied on the derived wavelet sub-band images. Furthermore, the extracted features are used to train Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier to create the model for classifying the fingerprint images into genuine and spoof. Experiments that has been done on Fingerprint Liveness Detection Competition (LivDet) datasets show the improvement of the fingerprint spoof detection by using the proposed feature.

    We present an algorithm of extracting the wavelet coefficients of object based on ghost imaging (GI) system. Through modification of the projected random patterns by using a series of templates, wavelet transform GI (WTGI) can directly measure the high frequency components of wavelet coefficients without needing the original image. In this study, we theoretically and experimentally perform the high frequency components of wavelet coefficients detection with an arrow and a letter A based on GI and WTGI. Comparing with the traditional method, the use of the algorithm proposed in this paper can significantly improve the quality of the image of wavelet coefficients in both cases. The special advantages of GI will make the wavelet coefficient detection based on WTGI very valuable in real applications.

    Linear phase is not possible for real valued FIR QMF, while linear phase FIR biorthogonal wavelet filter banks make the mean squared error of the constructed signal exceed that of the quantization error. W Lawton’ s method for complex valued wavelets construction is extended to generate the complex valued compactly supported wavelet packets that are symmetrical and unitary orthogonal; then well-defined wavelet packets are chosen by the analysis remarks on their time-frequency characteristics. Since the traditional wavelel packets transform coefficients do not exactly represent the strength of signal components, a modified adaptive wavelets transform, group-normalized wavelet packet transform (GNWPT), is presented and utilized for target extraction from formidable clutter or noises with the time-frequency masking technique. The extended definition of lp-norm entropy improves the performance cf GNWPT. Similar method can also be applied to image enhancement, clutter and noise suppression, optimal detection

By analyzing the influence of wavelet properties on image compression, this paper proposes wavelet construction rules and builds a new biorthogonal wavelet construction model with parameters. The model parameters are optimized by using genetic algorithm and adopting energy compaction as the optimization object function. In addition, in order to resolve the computation complexity problem of online construction, according to the image classification rule proposed in this paper we construct wavelets for different classes of images and implement the fast adaptive wavelet selection algorithm (FAWS). Experimental results show wavelet bases of FAWS gain better compression performance than Daubechies9/7.

    Full Text Available In this paper, a special type of IIR filter banks; that is the bireciprocal lattice wave digital filter (BLWDF bank, is presented to simulate scaling and wavelet functions of six-level wavelet transform. 1st order all-pass sections are utilized for the realization of such filter banks in wave lattice structures. The resulting structures are a bireciprocal lattice wave discrete wavelet filter banks (BLW-DWFBs. Implementation of these BLW-DWFBs are accomplished on Spartan-3E FPGA kit. Implementation complexity and operating frequency characteristics of such discrete wavelet 5th order filter bank is proved to be comparable to the corresponding characteristics of the lifting scheme implementation of Bio. 5/3 wavelet filter bank. On the other hand, such IIR filter banks possess superior band discriminations and perfect roll-off frequency characteristics when compared to their Bio. 5/3 wavelet FIR counterparts.

    Scale-discretised wavelets yield a directional wavelet framework on the sphere where a signal can be probed not only in scale and position but also in orientation. Furthermore, a signal can be synthesised from its wavelet coefficients exactly, in theory and practice (to machine precision). Scale-discretised wavelets are closely related to spherical needlets (both were developed independently at about the same time) but relax the axisymmetric property of needlets so that directional signal content can be probed. Needlets have been shown to satisfy important quasi-exponential localisation and asymptotic uncorrelation properties. We show that these properties also hold for directional scale-discretised wavelets on the sphere and derive similar localisation and uncorrelation bounds in both the scalar and spin settings. Scale-discretised wavelets can thus be considered as directional needlets.

  4. Reducing crosstalk in vertically integrated CMOS image sensors

    2010-01-01

    Image sensors can benefit from 3D IC fabrication methods because photodetectors and electronic circuits may be fabricated using significantly different processes. When fabricating the die that contains the photodetectors, it is desirable to avoid pixel level patterning of the light sensitive semiconductor. But without a physical border between adjacent photodetectors, lateral currents may flow between neighboring devices, which is called "crosstalk". This work introduces circuits that can be used to reduce crosstalk in vertically-integrated (VI) CMOS image sensors with an unpatterned photodetector array. It treats the case of a VI-CMOS image sensor composed of a silicon die with CMOS read-out circuits and a transparent die with an unpatterned array of photodetectors. A reduction in crosstalk can be achieved by maintaining a constant electric potential at all nodes, at which the photodetector array connects with the readout circuit array. This can be implemented by designing a pixel circuit that uses an operational amplifier with a logarithmic feedback to control the voltage at the input node. The work presents several optional circuit configurations for the pixel circuit, and indicates the one that is the most power efficient. Afterwards, it uses a simplified small-signal model of the pixel circuit to address stability and compensation issues. Lastly, the method is validated through circuit simulation for a standard CMOS process.

    Growth factors acting through receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) of ERBB family, along with steroid hormones (SH) acting through nuclear receptors (NRs), are critical signalling mediators of cellular processes. Deregulations of ERBB and steroid hormone receptors are responsible for several diseases, including cancer, thus demonstrating the central role played by both systems. This review will summarize and shed light on an emerging crosstalk between these two important receptor families. How this mutual crosstalk is attained, such as through extensive genomic and non-genomic interactions, will be addressed. In light of recent studies, we will describe how steroid hormones are able to fine-tune ERBB feedback loops, thus impacting on cellular output and providing a new key for understanding the complexity of biological processes in physiological or pathological conditions. In our understanding, the interactions between steroid hormones and RTKs deserve further attention. A system biology approach and advanced technologies for the analysis of RTK-SH crosstalk could lead to major advancements in molecular medicine, providing the basis for new routes of pharmacological intervention in several diseases, including cancer.

    2015-09-01

    Terra (T) MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), a heritage Earth observing sensor has completed 15 years of operation as of December 18 2014. T-MODIS has 36 spectral channels designed to monitor the land, ocean, and atmosphere. The long term climate data record from T-MODIS is an important dataset for global change monitoring. Sixteen of the spectral channels fall in the Mid (M) (3.7-4.5μm) to Long (L) (6.7-14.1μm)Wave InfraRed (M/LWIR) wavelengths, which are also referred to as the Thermal Emissive Bands (TEBs). To date the TEBs have very satisfactory performance which is attributed to the scan-by-scan calibration using an on-board BlackBody whose temperature is traceable to the NIST temperature standards. However, with an aging instrument, it was observed from 2010 onwards that the Photo Voltaic LWIR channels (Bands 27-30) have suffered significantly from electronic crosstalk. This is mainly due to the deterioration of the electronic circuits of the relevant bands in the LWIR Focal Plane Array (FPA). In this paper, we report the characterization of the electronic crosstalk in the above-mentioned bands using the well characterized test site such as Dome Concordia (C). Such characterization can be used to reduce the effects of crosstalk when implemented in the future Level 1B reprocessing and thereby increasing the radiometric fidelity of the concerned bands.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available The Notch pathway is a well-established mediator of cell-cell communication that plays a critical role in stem cell survival, self-renewal, cell fate decisions, tumorigenesis, invasion, metastasis, and drug resistance in a variety of cancers. An interesting form of crosstalk exists between the Notch receptor and the Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Tyrosine Kinase family which consists of HER-1, -2, -3, and -4. Overexpression of HER and/or Notch occurs in several human cancers including brain, lung, breast, ovary, and skin making them potent oncogenes capable of advancing malignant disease. Continued assessment of interplay between these two critical signaling networks uncovers new insight into mechanisms used by HER-driven cancer cells to exploit Notch as a compensatory pathway. The compensatory Notch pathway maintains HER-induced downstream signals transmitted to pathways such as Mitogen Activated Protein Kinase (MAPK and Phosphatidylinositol 3-Kinase (PI3K, thereby allowing cancer cells to survive molecular targeted therapies, undergo EMT, and increase cellular invasion. Uncovering the critical crosstalk between the HER and Notch pathways can lead to improved screening for the expression of these oncogenes enabling patients to optimize their personal treatment options and predict potential treatment resistance. This review will focus on the current state of crosstalk between the HER and Notch receptors and the effectiveness of current therapies targeting HER-driven cancers.

    2014-04-01

    The discovery of adipokines has revealed adipose tissue as a central node in the interorgan crosstalk network, which mediates the regulation of multiple organs and tissues. Adipose tissue is a true endocrine organ that produces and secretes a wide range of mediators regulating adipose tissue function in an auto-/paracrine manner and important distant targets, such as the liver, skeletal muscle, the pancreas and the cardiovascular system. In metabolic disorders such as obesity, enlargement of adipocytes leads to adipose tissue dysfunction and a shift in the secretory profile with an increased release of pro-inflammatory adipokines. Adipose tissue dysfunction has a central role in the development of insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. Besides the well-acknowledged role of adipokines in metabolic diseases, and the increasing number of adipokines being discovered in the last years, the mechanisms underlying the release of many adipokines from adipose tissue remain largely unknown. To combat metabolic diseases, it is crucial to better understand how adipokines can modulate adipose tissue growth and function. Therefore, we will focus on adipokines with a prominent role in auto-/paracrine crosstalk within the adipose tissue such as RBP4, HO-1, WISP2, SFRPs and chemerin. To depict the endocrine crosstalk between adipose tissue with skeletal muscle, the cardiovascular system and the pancreas, we will report the main findings regarding the direct effects of adiponectin, leptin, DPP4 and visfatin on skeletal muscle insulin resistance, cardiovascular function and β-cell growth and function.

With this scheme, energy compaction of texture images is first achieved by the wavelet packet transform, and an embedding approach is then adopted for the coding of the wavelet packet transform coefficients. By comparing the proposed algorithm with the JPEG standard, FBI wavelet/scalar quantization standard and the EZW scheme with extensive experimental results, we observe a significant improvement in the rate-distortion performance and visual quality.

    Full Text Available blending is now a popular technology for large realtime texture synthesis .Nevertheless, creating blend map during rendering is time and computation consuming work. In this paper, we exploited a method to create a kind of blend tile which can be tile together seamlessly. Note that blend map is in fact a kind of image, which is Markov Random Field, contains multiresolution signals, while wavelet is a powerful way to process multiresolution signals, we use wavelet to process the traditional blend tile. After our processing steps, the result blend tile become smooth and suitable for tiling, with no important features lost. Using this kind blend tile, many computation resources for computing blend map during texture synthesizing is saved. The experimental results shows that our method may successfully process many traditional blend tiles.

    2016-12-29

    This paper presents new methods for baseline wander correction and powerline interference reduction in electrocardiogram (ECG) signals using empirical wavelet transform (EWT). During data acquisition of ECG signal, various noise sources such as powerline interference, baseline wander and muscle artifacts contaminate the information bearing ECG signal. For better analysis and interpretation, the ECG signal must be free of noise. In the present work, a new approach is used to filter baseline wander and power line interference from the ECG signal. The technique utilized is the empirical wavelet transform, which is a new method used to compute the building modes of a given signal. Its performance as a filter is compared to the standard linear filters and empirical mode decomposition.The results show that EWT delivers a better performance.

    Within the multi-resolution analysis, the study of the image compression algorithm using the Haar wavelet has been performed. We have studied the dependence of the image quality on the compression ratio. Also, the variation of the compression level of the studied image has been obtained. It is shown that the compression ratio in the range of 8-10 is optimal for environmental monitoring. Under these conditions the compression level is in the range of 1.7 - 4.2, depending on the type of images. It is shown that the algorithm used is more convenient and has more advantages than Winrar. The Haar wavelet algorithm has improved the method of signal and image processing.

    2005-01-01

    A novel algorithm for Bayesian document segmentation is proposed based on the wavelet domain hidden Markov tree (HMT) model. Once the parameters of model are known, according to the sequential maximum a posterior probability (SMAP) rule, firstly, the likelihood probability of HMT model for each pattern is computed from fine to coarse procedure. Then, the interscale state transition probability is solved using Expectation Maximum (EM) algorithm based on hybrid-quadtree and multiscale context information is fused from coarse to fine procedure. In order to get pixellevel segmentation, the redundant wavelet domain Gaussian mixture model (GMM) is employed to formulate pixel-level statistical property. The experiment results show that the proposed scheme is feasible and robust.

  1. Wavelet-Based Monitoring for Biosurveillance

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Galit Shmueli

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available Biosurveillance, focused on the early detection of disease outbreaks, relies on classical statistical control charts for detecting disease outbreaks. However, such methods are not always suitable in this context. Assumptions of normality, independence and stationarity are typically violated in syndromic data. Furthermore, outbreak signatures are typically of unknown patterns and, therefore, call for general detectors. We propose wavelet-based methods, which make less assumptions and are suitable for detecting abnormalities of unknown form. Wavelets have been widely used for data denoising and compression, but little work has been published on using them for monitoring. We discuss monitoring-based issues and illustrate them using data on military clinic visits in the USA.

    Impedance cardiography has been used for diagnosing atrial and ventricular dysfunctions, valve disorders, aortic stenosis, and vascular diseases. Almost all the applications of impedance cardiography require determination of some of the characteristic points of the ICG waveform. The ICG waveform has a set of characteristic points known as A, B, E ((dZ/dt)max) X, Y, O and Z. These points are related to distinct physiological events in the cardiac cycle. Objective of this work is an approbation of a new method of processing and interpretation of the impedance cardiogram waveforms using wavelet analysis. A method of computer thoracic tetrapolar polyrheocardiography is used for hemodynamic registrations. Use of original wavelet differentiation algorithm allows combining filtration and calculation of the derivatives of rheocardiogram. The proposed approach can be used in clinical practice for early diagnostics of cardiovascular system remodelling in the course of different pathologies.

    Basics on the continuous and discrete wavelet transform with two scales are outlined. We study maps representing anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background radiation (CMB) and the relation to the standard approach, based on the Cl's, is establised through the introduction of a wavelet spectrum. We apply this technique to small angular scale CMB map simulations of size 12.8 x 12.8 degrees and filtered with a 4'.5 Gaussian beam. This resolution resembles the experimental one expected for future high resolution experiments (e.g. the Planck mission). We consider temperature fluctuations derived from standard, open and flat-Lambda CDM models. We also introduce Gaussian noise (uniform and non-uniform) at different S/N levels and results are given regarding denoising.

    2004-01-01

    Full Text Available The presence of periodical or nonperiodical impulses in vibration signals often indicates the occurrence of machine faults. This knowledge is applied to the fault diagnosis of such machines as engines, gearboxes, rolling element bearings, and so on. The development of an effective impulse detection technique is necessary and significant for evaluating the working condition of these machines, diagnosing their malfunctions, and keeping them running normally over prolong periods. With the aid of wavelet transforms, a wavelet-based envelope analysis method is proposed. In order to suppress any undesired information and highlight the features of interest, an improved soft threshold method has been designed so that the inspected signal is analyzed in a more exact way. Furthermore, an impulse detection technique is developed based on the aforementioned methods. The effectiveness of the proposed technique on the extraction of impulsive features of mechanical signals has been proved by both simulated and practical experiments.

    Full Text Available In this paper, we approximate a non – polynomial function which promises to be an essential tool in interest rates forecasting in the Philippines. We provide two numerical schemes in order to generate polynomial functions that approximate a new wavelet which is a modification of Morlet and Mexican Hat wavelets. The first is the Polynomial Least Squares method which approximates the underlying wavelet according to desired numerical errors. The second is the Chebyshev Polynomial approximation which generates the required function through a sequence of recursive and orthogonal polynomial functions. We seek to determine the lowest order polynomial representations of this wavelet corresponding to a set of error thresholds.

    By combining the wavelet decomposition with kernel method, a practical approach of universal multi-scale wavelet kernels constructed in reproducing kernel Hilbert space (RKHS) is discussed, and an identifica-tion scheme using wavelet support vector machines ( WSVM ) estimator is proposed for nonlinear dynamic sys-tems. The good approximating properties of wavelet kernel function enhance the generalization ability of the pro-posed method, and the comparison of some numerical experimental results between the novel approach and some existing methods is encouraging.

    A novel algorithm for digital audio watermarking in wavelet domain is proposed. First,an original audio signal is decomposed by discrete wavelet transform at three levels. Then, a discrete watermark is embedded into the coefficients of its intermediate frequencies. Finally, the watermarked audio signal is obtained by wavelet reconstruction. The proposed algorithm makes good use of the multiresolution characteristics of wavelet transform. The original audio signal is not needed when detecting the watermark correlatively. Simulation results show that the algorithm is inaudible and robust to noise, filtering and resampling.

    In this paper we propose a robust watermarking algorithm for 3D mesh. The algorithm is based on spherical wavelet transform. Our basic idea is to decompose the original mesh into a series of details at different scales by using spherical wavelet transform; the watermark is then embedded into the different levels of details. The embedding process includes: global sphere parameterization, spherical uniform sampling, spherical wavelet forward transform, embedding watermark, spherical wavelet inverse transform, and at last resampling the mesh watermarked to recover the topological connectivity of the original model. Experiments showed that our algorithm can improve the capacity of the watermark and the robustness of watermarking against attacks.

The adaptive nonlinear wavelet estimator with near-optimal convergence rate in a wide range of smoothness function classes is also constructed.

  4. Application of spline wavelet transform in differential of electroanalytical signal

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2001-01-01

    Investigating characteristics of spline wavelet, we found that if the two-order spline function, the derivative function of the three-order B spline function, is used as the wavelet base function, the spline wavelet transform has both the property of denoising and that of differential. As a result, the relation between the spline wavelet transform and the differential was studied in theory. Experimental results show that the spline wavelet transform can well be applied to the differential of the electroanalytical signal. Compared with other kinds of wavelet transform, the spline wavelet trans-form has a characteristic of differential. Compared with the digital differential and simulative differential with electronic circuit, the spline wavelet transform not only can carry out denoising and differential for a signal, but also has the ad-vantages of simple operation and small quantity of calcula-tion, because step length, RC constant and other kinds of parameters need not be selected. Compared with Alexander Kai-man Leung's differential method, the differential method with spline wavelet transform has the characteristic that the differential order is not dependent on the number of data points in the original signal.

The construction that we propose is a simple nonseparable extension of one-dimensional interpolating wavelets followed by a straightforward generalization. The resulting three oriented high-pass filters are symmetrically arranged on the lattice, while low-pass filters have hexagonal symmetry, thereby allowing an isotropic image processing in the sense that three detail components are distributed uniformly. Applying the triangular filter to images, we explore applications that truly benefit from the triangular wavelets in comparison with the conventional tensor product transforms.

    Wavelet entropy is a quantitative index to describe the complexity of signals. Continuous wavelet transform method was employed to analyze the spontaneous electroencephalogram (EEG) signals of mild, moderate and severe Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients and normal elderly control people in this study. Wavelet power spectrums of EEG signals were calculated based on wavelet coefficients. Wavelet entropies of mild, moderate and severe AD patients were compared with those of normal controls. The correlation analysis between wavelet entropy and MMSE score was carried out. There existed significant difference on wavelet entropy among mild, moderate, severe AD patients and normal controls (Pentropy for mild, moderate, severe AD patients was significantly lower than that for normal controls, which was related to the narrow distribution of their wavelet power spectrums. The statistical difference was significant (Pentropy of EEG and the MMSE score were significantly correlated (r= 0. 601-0. 799, Pentropy is a quantitative indicator describing the complexity of EEG signals. Wavelet entropy is likely to be an electrophysiological index for AD diagnosis and severity assessment.

    This paper presents wavelet modulation, based on the discrete wavelet transform, as an alternative modulation with low energy consumption. The transmitted signal has low envelope variations, which induces a good efficiency for the power amplifier. Wavelet modulation is analyzed and compared for different wavelet families with orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) in terms of peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR), power spectral density (PSD) properties, and the impact of the power amplifier on the spectral regrowth. The performance in terms of bit error rate and complexity of implementation are also evaluated, and several trade-offs are characterized. xml:lang="fr"

    The purpose of this study is to compare image denoising techniques based on real and complex wavelet-transforms. Possibilities provided by the classical discrete wavelet transform (DWT) with hard and soft thresholding are considered, and influences of the wavelet basis and image resizing are discussed. The quality of image denoising for the standard 2-D DWT and the dual-tree complex wavelet transform (DT-CWT) is studied. It is shown that DT-CWT outperforms 2-D DWT at the appropriate selection of the threshold level.

    A new robust watermarking approach was proposed in 2D continuous wavelet domain (CWT).The watermark is embedded into the large coefficients in the middle band of wavelet transform modulus maxima (WTMM) of the host image.After possible attacks,the watermark is then detected and extracted by correlation analysis.Compared with other wavelet domain watermarking approaches,the WTMM approach can endow the image with both rotation and shift invariant properties.On the other hand,scale invariance is achieved with the geometric normalization during watermark detection.Case studies involve various attacks such as shifting,lossy compression,scaling,rotation and median filtering on the watermarked image,and the result shows that the approach is robust to these attacks.

    While many synthetic aperture radar (SAR) applications use only detected imagery, dramatic improvements in resolution and employment of algorithms requiring complex-valued SAR imagery suggest the need for compression of complex data. Here, we investigate the benefits of using complex- valued wavelets on complex SAR imagery in the embedded zerotree wavelet compression algorithm, compared to using real-valued wavelets applied separately to the real and imaginary components. This compression is applied at low ratios (4:1-12:1) for high fidelity output. The complex spatial correlation metric is used to numerically evaluate quality. Numerical results are tabulated and original and decompressed imagery are presented as well as correlation maps to allow visual comparisons.

    To provide a good quality rendering in the Image based relighting (IBL) system, tremendous reference images under various illumination conditions are needed. Therefore data compression is essential to enable interactive action. And the rendering speed is another crucial consideration for real applications. Based on Spherical wavelet transform (SWT), this paper presents a quick representation method with Integer wavelet transform (IWT) for the IBL system. It focuses on comparison on different IWTs with the Embedded zerotree wavelet (EZW) used in the IBL system. The whole compression procedure contains two major compression steps. Firstly, SWT is applied to consider the correlation among different reference images. Secondly, the SW transformed images are compressed with IWT based image compression approach. Two IWTs are used and good results are showed in the simulations.

  14. Wavelets in Recognition of Bird Sounds

    Full Text Available This paper presents a novel method to recognize inharmonic and transient bird sounds efficiently. The recognition algorithm consists of feature extraction using wavelet decomposition and recognition using either supervised or unsupervised classifier. The proposed method was tested on sounds of eight bird species of which five species have inharmonic sounds and three reference species have harmonic sounds. Inharmonic sounds are not well matched to the conventional spectral analysis methods, because the spectral domain does not include any visible trajectories that computer can track and identify. Thus, the wavelet analysis was selected due to its ability to preserve both frequency and temporal information, and its ability to analyze signals which contain discontinuities and sharp spikes. The shift invariant feature vectors calculated from the wavelet coefficients were used as inputs of two neural networks: the unsupervised self-organizing map (SOM and the supervised multilayer perceptron (MLP. The results were encouraging: the SOM network recognized 78% and the MLP network 96% of the test sounds correctly.

    Signal denoising and smoothing plays an important role in processing the given signal either from experiment or data collection through observations. Data collection usually was mixed between true data and some error or noise. This noise might be coming from the apparatus to measure or collect the data or human error in handling the data. Normally before the data is use for further processing purposes, the unwanted noise need to be filtered out. One of the efficient methods that can be used to filter the data is wavelet transform. Due to the fact that the received solar radiation data fluctuates according to time, there exist few unwanted oscillation namely noise and it must be filtered out before the data is used for developing mathematical model. In order to apply denoising using wavelet transform (WT), the thresholding values need to be calculated. In this paper the new thresholding approach is proposed. The coiflet2 wavelet with variation diminishing 4 is utilized for our purpose. From numerical results it can be seen clearly that, the new thresholding approach give better results as compare with existing approach namely global thresholding value.

    A new method for receiver function inversion by wavelet transformation is presented in this paper. Receiver func-tion is expanded to different scales with different resolution by wavelet transformation. After an initial model be-ing taken, a generalized least-squares inversion procedure is gradually carried out for receiver function from low tohigh scale, with the inversion result for low order receiver function as the initial model for high order. Aneighborhood containing the global minimum is firstly searched from low scale receiver function, and will gradu-ally focus at the global minimum by introducing high scale information of receiver function. With the gradual ad-dition of high wave-number to smooth background velocity structure, wavelet transformation can keep the inver-sion result converge to the global minimum, reduce to certain extent the dependence of inversion result on theinitial model, overcome the nonuniqueness of generalized least-squares inversion, and obtain reliable crustal andupper mantle velocity with high resolution.

    Phonocardiograms (PCG) are recordings of the acoustic waves produced by the mechanical action of the heart. They generally consist of two kinds of acoustic vibrations: heart sounds and heart murmurs. Heart murmurs are often the first signs of pathological changes of the heart valves, and are usually found during auscultation in primary health care. Heart auscultation has been recognized for a long time as an important tool for the diagnosis of heart disease, although its accuracy is still insufficient to diagnose some heart diseases. It does not enable the analyst to obtain both qualitative and quantitative characteristics of the PCG signals. The efficiency of diagnosis can be improved considerably by using modern digital signal processing techniques. Therefore, these last can provide useful and valuable information on these signals. The aim of this study is to analyse PCG signals using wavelet transform. This analysis is based on an algorithm for the detection of heart sounds (the first and second sounds, S1 and S2) and heart murmurs using the PCG signal as the only source. The segmentation algorithm, which separates the components of the heart signal, is based on denoising by wavelet transform (DWT). This algorithm makes it possible to isolate individual sounds (S1 or S2) and murmurs. Thus, the analysis of various PCGs signals using wavelet transform can provide a wide range of statistical parameters related to the phonocardiogram signal.

    Synchrosqueezing is a procedure for improving the frequency localization of a continuous wavelet transform. This research focuses on using a synchrosqueezed wavelet transform (SWT) to determine the damping ratios of a vibrating system using a free-response signal. While synchrosqueezing is advantageous due to its localisation in the frequency, damping identification with the original SWT is not sufficiently accurate. Here, the synchrosqueezing was researched in detail, and it was found that an error in the frequency occurs as a result of the numerical calculation of the preliminary frequencies. If this error were to be compensated, a better damping identification would be expected. To minimize the frequency-shift error, three different strategies are investigated: the scale-dependent coefficient method, the shifted-coefficient method and the autocorrelated-frequency method. Furthermore, to improve the SWT, two synchrosqueezing criteria are introduced: the average SWT and the proportional SWT. Finally, the proposed modifications are tested against close modes and the noise in the signals. It was numerically and experimentally confirmed that the SWT with the proportional criterion offers better frequency localization and performs better than the continuous wavelet transform when tested against noisy signals.

    The present work focuses on spatial/frequency analysis of epiluminesence images of dysplastic nevus and melanoma. A three-level wavelet decomposition was performed on skin-lesion images to obtain coefficients in the wavelet domain. A total of 34 features were obtained by computing ratios of the mean, variance, energy and entropy of the wavelet coefficients along with the mean and standard deviation of image intensity. An unpaired t-test for a normal distribution based features and the Wilcoxon rank-sum test for non-normal distribution based features were performed for selecting statistically correlated features. For our data set, the statistical analysis of features reduced the feature set from 34 to 5 features. For classification, the discriminant functions were computed in the feature space using the Mahanalobis distance. ROC curves were generated and evaluated for false positive fraction from 0.1 to 0.4. Most of the discrimination functions provided a true positive rate for melanoma of 93% with a false positive rate up to 21%.

    Full Text Available Structural pounding can cause considerable damage and even lead to collapse of structures. Most research focuses on modeling, parameter investigation, and mitigation approaches. With the development of structural health monitoring, the on-line detection of pounding becomes possible. The detection of pounding can provide useful information of potential damage of structures. This paper proposed using wavelet scalograms of dynamic response to detect pounding and examined the feasibility of this method. Numerical investigations were performed on a pounding system that consisted of a damped single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF structure and a rigid barrier. Hertz contact model was used to simulate pounding behavior. The responses and pounding forces of the system under harmonic and earthquake excitations were numerically solved. The wavelet scalograms of acceleration responses were used to identify poundings. It was found that the scalograms can indicate the occurrence of pounding and occurrence time very well. The severity of the poundings was also approximately estimated. Experimental studies were carried out, in which shake table tests were conducted on a bridge model that underwent pounding between its different components during ground motion excitation. The wavelet scalograms of the bridge responses indicated pounding occurrence quite well. Hence the conclusions from the numerical studies were verified experimentally.
