In many signal processing applications, we want to estimate the covariance matrix of a multivariate Gaussian distribution. We often require the estimate to be not only invertible but also well-conditioned. We consider the maximum likelihood estimation of the covariance matrix with a constraint on the condition number. We show that this estimation problem can be reformulated as a convex univariate minimization problem, which admits an analytic solution. This estimation method requires no special… CONTINUE READING
