In this talk I describe MAGIC [1], an efficient approach to covariance estimation and signal reconstruction for Gaussian random fields (MAGIC Allows Global Inference of Covariance). It solves a long-standing problem in the field of cosmic microwave background (CMB) data analysis but is in fact a general technique that can be applied to noisy, contaminated and incomplete or censored measurements of either spatial or temporal Gaussian random fields. In this talk I will phrase the method in a way… Expand

The Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) is an abundant source of cosmological information. However, this information is encoded in non-trivial ways in a signal that is difficult to observe. The… Expand

The past decade has been the most exciting time in cosmology in these respects: 1. The discovery of Dark Energy, and an estimate of the composition of the universe. 2. Advances in the understanding… Expand

In engineering analysis we must often predict the behavior of a univariate function — a relation between an input (independent variable) and an output (dependent variable) — in order to design or… Expand

Various statistical procedures related to linear prediction and optimal filtering are developed for general, irregularly sampled, data sets. The data set may be a function of time, a spatial sample,… Expand
