The purpose of the paper is to apply a nonlinear programming algorithm for computing kernel and related parameters of a support vector machine (SVM) by a two-level approach. Available training data are split into two groups, one set for formulating a quadratic SVM with L2-soft margin and another one for minimizing the generalization error, where the optimal(More)
This paper presents a new method for the design of sharp linear phase FIR filters using the frequency-response masking (FRM) technique. The method is based on a weighted least square (WLS) approach, and the design problem is solved iteratively. The original least square (LS) problem is decomposed into two LS problems, each of which can be solved(More)
This paper presents a method for the frequency-domain design of digital finite impulse response filters with arbitrary magnitude and group delay responses. The method can deal with both the equiripple design problem and the peak constrained least squares (PCLS) design problem. Consequently, the method can also be applied to the equiripple passbands and PCLS(More)
Recent clinical trials have shown that for some cancers, high-intensity alternating chemotherapy does not significantly improve either survival times or response rates compared with nonalternating therapy. The current study uses optimal control to determine the best way to treat a tumor that contains drug-resistant cells that cannot be destroyed. The(More)
Envelope-constrained ltering is concerned with the design of a time-invariant lter to process a given input signal such that the noiseless output of the lter is guaranteed to lie within a prespeci ed output mask. In this paper, using Laguerre lters andH1 optimization techniques, the continuous-time envelope-constrained lter design problem has been(More)
