Consider a stochastic system of multiple subsystems, each subsystem having binary (“0” or “1”) output. The full system may have general binary or nonbinary (e.g., Gaussian) output. Such systems are widely encountered in practice, and include engineering systems for reliability, communications, and sensor networks, the collection of patients in a clinical trial, and Internet-based control systems. This paper considers the identification of parameters for such systems for general structural… CONTINUE READING
