Although sinusoidal models have been demonstrated to be capable of high-quality m usical instrument synthesis [1], speech modication [2], and speech synthesis [3], little exploration of the application of these models to the synthesis of singing voice has been un-dertaken. In this paper, we propose a system framework similar to that employed in(More)
We have measured potential-dependent changes in the absorption of light by oxidized cholesterol bilayer lipid membranes in the presence of impermeant oxonol dyes. The magnitude of the absorption signal increased linearly with the size of potential steps over a range of 500 mV. The signal also increased when the offset voltage of the pulse train was(More)
Acoustic vehicle classification is a difficult problem due to the non-stationary nature of the signals, and especially the lack of strong harmonic structure for most civilian vehicles with highly muffled exhausts. Acoustic signatures will also vary largely depending on speed, acceleration, gear position, and even the aspect angle of the sensor. The problem(More)
