In this paper, we consider the extension of the Fourier transform to biquaternion-valued signals. We introduce a transform that we call the biquaternion Fourier transform (BiQFT). After giving some general properties of this transform, we show how it can be used to generalize the notion of analytic signal to complex-valued signals. We introduce the notion(More)
PGA, or Principal Geodesic Analysis, is an extension of the classical PCA (Principal Component Analysis) to the case of data taking values on a Riemannian manifold. In this paper a new and original algorithm, for the exact computation of the PGA of data on the rotation group SO(3), is presented. Some properties of this algorithm are illustrated, with tests(More)
Noncommutative harmonic analysis is used to solve a nonparametric estimation problem stated in terms of compound Poisson processes on compact Lie groups. This problem of decompounding is a generalization of a similar classical problem. The proposed solution is based on a characteristic function method. The treated problem is important to recent models of(More)
Data which lie in the space Pm , of m × m symmetric positive definite matrices, (sometimes called tensor data), play a fundamental role in applications including medical imaging, computer vision, and radar signal processing. An open challenge, for these applications, is to find a class of probability distributions, which is able to capture the statistical(More)
The current paper deals with filtering problems where the observation process, conditioned on the unknown signal, is an elliptic diffusion in a differentiable manifold. Precisely, the observation model is given by a stochastic differential equation in the underlying manifold. The main new idea is to use a Le Jan-Watanabe connection, instead of a usual(More)
This paper studies Brownian distributions on compact Lie groups. These are defined as the marginal distributions of Brownian processes and are intended as a natural extension of the well-known normal distributions to compact Lie groups. It is shown that this definition preserves key properties of normal distributions. In particular, Brownian distributions(More)
The Riemannian geometry of the space P m , of m × m symmetric positive definite matrices, has provided effective tools to the fields of medical imaging, computer vision and radar signal processing. Still, an open challenge remains, which consists of extending these tools to correctly handle the presence of outliers (or abnormal data), arising from excessive(More)
Many signal and image processing applications, including texture analysis, radar detection or EEG signal classification, require the computation of a centroid from a set of covariance matrices. The most popular approach consists in considering the center of mass. While efficient, this estimator is not robust to outliers arising from the inherent variability(More)
