The sufficient statistic for performing the likelihood ratio test for pairwise interaction point processes is well-known; however, the evaluation of its performance is a very difficult problem. In this paper it is shown that the distribution of the sufficient statistic can be approximated by the distribution of a Poisson-driven shot-noise random variable,(More)
Nonparametric estimation of interaction functions for twotype pairwise interaction point processes is addressed. Such a problem is known to be challenging due to the intractable normalizing constant present in the density function. It is shown that the means of the marked interpoint distance functions embedded in the two-type pairwise interaction point(More)
In speech recognition systems, a common problem is transcription of new additions to the recognition lexicon into their phonetic symbols. Specific to the Japanese language, such a problem can be dealt with in two steps. In this paper, we focus on the first step, in which the new lexical entry is converted into a set of hiragana syllabaries, which is almost(More)
