Near-optimal detection of geometric objects by fast multiscale methods

- Ery Arias-Castro, D. Donoho, X. Huo
- Mathematics, Computer Science
- IEEE Transactions on Information Theory
- 2005

We construct detectors for "geometric" objects in noisy data. Examples include a detector for presence of a line segment of unknown length, position, and orientation in two-dimensional image data… Expand

Large-Scale Absence of Sharks on Reefs in the Greater-Caribbean: A Footprint of Human Pressures

- C. Ward-Paige, C. Mora, +4 authors R. Myers
- Biology, Medicine
- PloS one
- 5 August 2010

Background In recent decades, large pelagic and coastal shark populations have declined dramatically with increased fishing; however, the status of sharks in other systems such as coral reefs remains… Expand

Community Detection in Random Networks

- Ery Arias-Castro, N. Verzelen
- Mathematics
- 27 February 2013

We formalize the problem of detecting a community in a network into testing whether in a given (random) graph there is a subgraph that is unusually dense. We observe an undirected and unweighted… Expand

Detecting Positive Correlations in a Multivariate Sample

- Ery Arias-Castro, S'ebastien Bubeck, G'abor Lugosi
- Mathematics
- 24 February 2012

We consider the problem of testing whether a correlation matrix of a multivariate normal population is the identity matrix. We focus on sparse classes of alternatives where only a few entries are… Expand

Cluster detection in networks using percolation

- Ery Arias-Castro, G. Grimmett
- Mathematics
- 2 April 2011

We consider the task of detecting a salient cluster in a sensor network, that is, an undirected graph with a random variable attached to each node. Motivated by recent research in environmental… Expand
