A novel automated magnetic resonance image segmentation approach based on elliptical gamma mixture model for breast lumps detection

A novel semisupervised automated segmentation approach for breast magnetic resonance (MR) image on multicore CPU‐GPU systems based on elliptical gamma mixture model (EGMM) with real‐time segmentation performance and computational cost assessed.

On a class of geodesically convex optimization problems solved via Euclidean MM methods

The split structure permits the development of Euclidean Majorization-Minorization algorithms that help to bypass the need to compute expensive Riemannian operations such as exponential maps and parallel transport.

Statistical Learning over Manifolds and its applications in Computer Vision

A novel parametric classification method on Stiefel and Grassmann manifolds is presented and it has been confirmed that this new generalised Bayesian parametric modeling approach measurably improved the classification accuracy.

Regularized maximum likelihood estimation of covariance matrices of elliptical distributions

This paper will show how regularized estimators can be naturally introduced in the framework of maximum likelihood estimation, and how they can be extended to form robust estimators which can reject outliers.

Expected Logarithm of Central Quadratic Form and Its Use in KL-Divergence of Some Distributions

Three different methods for computing the expected logarithm of central quadratic forms are developed: a series method, an integral method and a fast (but inexact) set of methods.

Robust Statistical Modeling Using the t Distribution

Abstract The t distribution provides a useful extension of the normal for statistical modeling of data sets involving errors with longer-than-normal tails. An analytical strategy based on maximum

Multivariate Distributions at a Cross Road

On the generalized noncentral chi-squared distribution induced by an elliptical gamma law

SUMMARY Certain important statistical inference and classification problems lead to the consideration of quadratic forms in rotationally invariant random variables. In this paper noncentral

Statistical analysis for the angular central Gaussian distribution on the sphere

Robust $M$-Estimators of Multivariate Location and Scatter

Let x, xn be a sample from an m-variate distribution which is spherically symmetric up to an affine transformation. This paper deals with the robust estimation of the location vector t and scatter

Generalized Multivariate Analysis

The theory of generalized multivariate analysis, based on elliptically contoured distributions, represents a great achievement in the field of multivariate analysis. The text discusses estimation of
