In deriving the data-driven temporal filters for speech features, the Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA) has been shown to be successful in improving the feature robustness [1,2,3]. In our previous works [4,5] it was shown that the criteria of Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Minimum Classification Error (MCE) can also be used to obtain theâ€¦ (More)

The transmitter of a video codec system is designed and realized in ECL hardware. This video codec system is capable of carrying one commercial NTSC color television channel with a program audio channel at a rate of 42.9 Mb/s. The transmitter interfaces with a DPCM processor. The transmitter removes the horizontal blanking interval from the compositeâ€¦ (More)

We give sharp two-sided linear bounds of the crosscap number (nonorientable genus) of alternating links in terms of their Jones polynomial. Our estimates are often exact and we use them to calculate the crosscap numbers for several infinite families of alternating links and for several alternating knots with up to twelve crossings. We also discussâ€¦ (More)

An L-space knot generalizes the notion of knots which admit lens space surgeries. A rational homology 3-sphere Y is an L-space if |H1(Y ; Z)| = rank Ä¤F (Y ), where Ä¤F denotes the â€˜hatâ€™ version of Heegaard Floer homology, and the name stems from the fact that lens spaces are L-spaces. Besides lens spaces, examples of L-spaces include all connected sums ofâ€¦ (More)
