Identifying the ground surface in ground-penetrating radar (GPR) data is useful and can be done efficiently and accurately using the Viterbi algorithm. This involves representing the radar image as a trellis graph and solving for the optimal path. To identify multiple layer boundaries in a radar image in this manner, it is necessary to find multiple(More)
While the Choquet integral (ChI) is a powerful parametric nonlinear aggregation function, it has limited scope and is not a universal function generator. Herein, we focus on a class of problems that are outside the scope of a single ChI. Namely, we are interested in tasks where different subsets of inputs require different ChIs. Herein, a genetic program(More)

A COntext-DEpendent (CODE) detection method is described. Detectors are run in separate image segments, and the detector outputs are aggregated to produce a system output. The process of aggregating outputs is called Alarm-Set Fusion (ASF). A Run Packing (RP) ASF technique is described for training an ASF algorithm. The RP ASF algorithm uses dynamic(More)
In this paper, we consolidate and expand upon the current theory and potential applications of the set of k best cascading via-paths (CVPs) and the reciprocal pointer chain (RPC) method for identifying them. CVPs are a collection of up to |V | paths between a source and a target node in a graph G = (V,E), computed using two shortest path trees, that have(More)
