Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), an evolutionary algorithm for optimization is extended to determine if natural selection, or survival-of-the-fittest, can enhance the ability of the PSO algorithm to escape from local op-tima. To simulate selection, many simultaneous, parallel PSO algorithms, each one a swarm, operate on a test problem. Simple rules are(More)
—Algorithms for designing a mother wavelet () such that it matches a signal of interest and such that the family of wavelets 2 (2) (2) forms an orthonormal Riesz basis of 2 () are developed. The algorithms are based on a closed form solution for finding the scaling function spectrum from the wavelet spectrum. Many applications of signal representation,(More)
This paper, introduces a new lter bank structure called the perfect reconstruction circular convolution (PRCC) l-ter bank. These lter banks satisfy the perfect reconstruction properties, namely, the paraunitary properties in the discrete frequency domain. We further show h o w the PRCC analysis and synthesis lter banks are completely implemented in this(More)
In this paper we present a new form of wavelet transform. Unlike the continuous wavelet transform (CWT) or discrete wavelet transform (DWT), the mother wavelet is chosen to be a discrete-time signal and wavelet coefficients are computed by correlating a given discrete-time signal with continuous dilations of the mother wavelet. The results developed are(More)
Detection of malaria parasites in stained blood smears is critical for treatment of the disease. Automation of this process will help in reducing the time taken for diagnosis and the chance for human errors. However, the variability and artifacts in microscope images of blood samples pose significant challenges for accurate detection. A scheme based on HSV(More)
Very large format video or wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) acquired by an airborne camera sensor array is characterized by persistent observation over a large field-of-view with high spatial resolution but low frame rates (i.e. one to ten frames per second). Current WAMI sensors have sufficient coverage and resolution to track vehicles for many hours using(More)
When we have observations of a discrete deterministic signal (physical object) in colored Gaussian noise, it is possible to obtain asymptotically unbiased estimates of the bispectrum of the signal only at frequency pairs (al, w2) which do not satisfy any of the following: wI = 0, w 2 = 0, and o1 + w2 = 0. Several approaches reported in the literature that(More)
