—This paper presents a new blind equalization algorithm called multimodulus algorithm (MMA). This algorithm combines the benefits of the well-known reduced constellation algorithm (RCA) and constant modulus algorithm (CMA). In addition , MMA provides more flexibility than RCA and CMA, and is better suited to take advantage of the symbol statistics of(More)
This paper reports on a novel method for quantifying the cortical activity of a patient during general anesthesia as a surrogate measure of the patient's level of consciousness. The proposed technique is based on the analysis of a single-channel (frontal) electroencephalogram (EEG) signal using stationary wavelet transform (SWT). The wavelet coefficients(More)
— This article reports on the development and implementation of an algorithm for the design of spatially-distributed feedback controllers for the wide variety of physical processes that are included in cross-directional control of industrial paper machines. The spatial and temporal structure of this class of process models is exploited in the use of the(More)
We present a novel method for estimating respiratory rate in real time from the photoplethysmogram (PPG) obtained from pulse oximetry. Three respiratory-induced variations (frequency, intensity, and amplitude) are extracted from the PPG using the Incremental-Merge Segmentation algorithm. Frequency content of each respiratory-induced variation is analyzed(More)
We present a connection between the viability kernel and maximal reachable sets. Current numerical schemes that compute the viability kernel suffer from a complexity that is exponential in the dimension of the state space. In contrast, extremely efficient and scalable techniques are available that compute maximal reachable sets. We show that under certain(More)
