This paper presents a novel transform related to the framework of warping operators when the continuous time warping mapping is a second-order polynomial. This case is proven in the paper to be the only one from the aforementioned group that marginalizes the Wigner distribution along line paths, in particular, with a fan geometry. The properties and(More)
Active deformable models are simple tools, very popular in computer vision and computer graphics, for solving ill-posed problems or mimic real physical systems. The classical formulation is given in the spatial domain, the motor of the procedure is a second-order linear system, and rigidity and elasticity are the basic parameters for its characterization.(More)
This paper introduces a new spectral representation-based pitch estimation method. Since pitch is never stationary during real conversations, but often undergoes changes because of intonation, the spectral representation is derived from the Short-time Harmonic Chirp Transform. This lets our technique to perform very well in noisy conditions, and to extract(More)
The architecture of the cerebellar model articulation controller (CMAC) presents a rigid compromise between learning and generalization. In the presence of a sparse training dataset, this limitation manifestly causes overfitting, a drawback that is not overcome by current training algorithms. This paper proposes a novel training framework founded on the(More)
This paper presents a novel signal-processing-based artificial model of the auditory mechanism. This work is inspired by the psychocortical fact that the biological cochlea is very sensitive to frequency-varying tones, or chirps. The method uses a novel combination of several (at least three) Harmonic-Chirp transform instances, that project the(More)
