In this paper, we carry out a study on classification of musical instr uments using a small set of features selected from a broad range of extracted ones by sequential forward feature selection method. Firstly, we extract 58 features for each record in the music database of 351 sound files. Then, the sequential forward selection method is adopted to choose(More)
This paper proposes a novel representation, known as Lv's distribution (LVD), of linear frequency modulated (LFM) signals. It has been well known that a monocomponent LFM signal can be uniquely determined by two important physical quantities, centroid frequency and chirp rate (CFCR). The basic reason for expressing a LFM signal in the CFCR domain is that(More)

Selection of significant genes via expression patterns is an important problem in microarray data processing. In this article, we propose and study a new method for selecting relevant genes obtained by spectral biclustering and based on similarity between genes and eigenvectors. The proposed algorithm can select a much smaller gene subset to make accurate(More)
Group Lasso is a mixed <i>l</i><sub>1</sub>/<i>l</i><sub>2</sub>-regularization method for a block-wise sparse model that has attracted a lot of interests in statistics, machine learning, and data mining. This paper establishes the possibility of stably recovering original signals from the noisy data using the adaptive group Lasso with a combination of(More)
A method which we call support vector machine with graded resolution (SVM-GR) is proposed in this paper. During the training of the SVM-GR, we first form data granules to train the SVM-GR and remove those data granules that are not support vectors. We then use the remaining training samples to train the SVM-GR. Compared with the traditional SVM, our SVM-GR(More)
As a specific application of semantic video content analysis, automatic video classification has emerged as a very active area of research during the past few years. In terms of sports genre classification, commonly utilized features include color, motion, audio, and caption text. Although the edge feature is widely employed in other fields such as object(More)
A new inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) imaging approach is presented for application in situations where the maneuverability of noncooperative target is not too severe and the Doppler variation of subechoes from scatterers can be approximated as a first-order polynomial. The proposed algorithm is referred to as the range centroid Doppler (RCD) ISAR(More)
