Automatic thresholding of the gray-level values of an image is very useful in automated analysis of morphological images, and it represents the first step in many applications in image understanding. Recently it was shown that by choosing the threshold as the value that maximizes the entropy of the l-dimensional histogram of an image, one might be able to(More)
A genetic algorithm is developed to find the ridges in paper fingerprints. It is based on the fact that the ridges of the fingerprints are parallel. When scanning the fingerprint, line by line, the ideal noise-free gray level distribution should yield lines of black and white. The widths of these lines are not constant. The proposed genetic algorithm(More)
Stochastic calculus methods are used to estimate the instantaneous frequency of a signal. The frequency is modeled as a polynomial in time. It is assumed that the phase has a Brownian-motion component. Using stochastic calculus, one is able to develop a stochastic differential equation that relates the observations to instantaneous frequency. Pseudo-maximum(More)
Multichannel Blind Deconvolution MBD is a powerful tool particularly for the identification and estimation of dynamical systems in which a sensor, for measuring the input, is difficult to place. This paper presents an MBD method, based on the Malliavin calculus MC stochastic calculus of variations . The arterial network is modeled as a Finite Impulse(More)
Evaluation of the time-varying parameters (Compliance, Resistance, and Inertance) that describe the right and left ventricles has been of interest for some years. Analyses usually involve a particular assertion regarding energy contributions or of the nature of the parameters themselves. It is of interest to engage the issue with a more general approach by(More)
A new tool for estimation of both the central arterial pressure and the unknown channel dynamics has been developed. Given two peripheral waveform measurements, this new signal processing algorithm generates two models that represent the distinct branch dynamic behavior associated with the measured signals. The framework for this methodology is based on a(More)
