Seizures are often the first sign of neurological disease or dysfunction in the newborn. However, their clinical manifestation is often subtle, which tends to hinder their diagnosis at the earliest possible time. This represents an undesirable situation since the failure to quickly and accurately diagnose seizure can lead to longer-term brain injury or even(More)
What should we do to raise the quality of signal processing publications to an even higher level? We believe it to be crucial to maintain the precision in describing our work in publications, ensured through a high-quality reviewing process. We also believe that if the experiments are performed on a large data set, the algorithm is compared to the(More)
The word robust has been used in many contexts in signal processing. Our treatment concerns statistical robustness, which deals with deviations from the distributional assumptions. Many problems encountered in engineering practice rely on the Gaussian distribution of the data, which in many situations is well justified. This enables a simple derivation of(More)
An estimator for the phase parameters of mono- and multicomponent FM signals, with both good numerical properties and statistical performance is proposed. The proposed approach is based on the Hough transform of the pseudo-Wigner-Ville time-frequency distribution (PWVD). It is shown that the numerical properties of the estimator can be improved by varying(More)
A novel algorithm for distributed labeling of speech sources is proposed. We consider a wireless sensor network comprising devices that are equipped with multiple microphones, which can “hear” a number of speech signals. The labeling task is performed in a decentralized fashion with a new two-step approach. The first step corresponds to the(More)
While the theory of estimation of monocomponent polynomial phase signals is well established, the theoretical and methodical treatment of multicomponent polynomial phase signals (mc-PPSs) is limited. In this paper, we investigate several aspects of parameter estimation for mc-PPSs and derive the Crameacuter-Rao bound. We show the limits of existing(More)
In this paper, a scheme for target discrimination and classification is proposed. The proposed scheme is applied to through-the-wall microwave images obtained by using a wideband radar implementing frequency-domain back-projection. We consider stationary targets where Doppler and change-detection based techniques are inapplicable. The proposed scheme(More)
We propose a blind separation technique for nonstationary sources that exploits both auto-terms and cross-terms of the time-frequency distributions. The technique is based on the simultaneous joint diagonalization and off-diagonalization of spatial time-frequency distributions. Computer simulations demonstrate the superiority of the approach in comparison(More)
