A subthreshold signal is transmitted through a channel and may be detected when some noise--with known structure and proportional to some level--is added to the data. There is an optimal noise level, called stochastic resonance that corresponds to the highest Fisher information in the problem of estimation of the signal. As noise we consider an ergodic diffusion process and the asymptotic is considered as time goes to infinity. We propose consistent estimators of the subthreshold signal and we… 
Estimating Unobservable Signal by Markovian Noise Induction. When Noise Helps in Statistics!
TLDR
The case when the noise is a Markovian process, called of stochastic resonance, is studied and consistent estimators of the sub threshold signal are proposed to solve a problem of hypotheses testing.

Nonparametric Estimation of Distribution and Density Functions in Presence of Missing Data: An Ifs Approach
In this paper we consider a class of nonparametric estimators of a distribution function F, with compact support, based on the theory of IFSs. The estimator of F is tought as the fixed point of a

Approximating Distribution Functions by Iterated Function Systems
TLDR
An iterated function system on the space of distribution functions is built and the inverse problem is introduced and studied by convex optimization problems.
A Logistic Growth Law for Government Expenditures: An Explanatory Analysis
Wagner's Law would imply an exponential growth process of the ratio between public expenditures and national income (G/Y). However the law may be rejected both on theoretical and empirical reasons,
C Wedge(1,1) Approximations of Generalized Support Vector Machines
TLDR
Smoothing methods are applied in this paper to approximate some optimization problems arising in the theory of generalized support vector machines to minimize the weighted combination of the error distance and the number of features utilized by thesupport vector machines.

Statistical analysis of stochastic resonance in a simple setting.
TLDR
This work determines optimal configurations of detectors, varying the distances between the thresholds and the signal, as well as the noise level, to explore the detectability of the signal in a system with one or more detectors, with different thresholds.

TLDR
An optimal nonparametric regression model for a threshold detector exposed to a noisy, subthreshold signal is studied, including the existence of an optimal amount of noise (stochastic resonance).
What are stochastic filtering and stochastic resonance
The concept of stochastic resonance (SR) was introduced in 1981 in the study of ice-age periodicity in the northern hemisphere. To describe this phenomenon, a relaxation model — an overdamped
Information-theoretic measures improved by noise in nonlinear systems
TLDR
Stochastic resonance is a phenomenon whereby the transmission of a signal by certain nonlinear systems can be improved by addition of noise, demonstrating different forms of noiseenhanced transmission.
Nonparametric regression for threshold data
Consider a detector which records the times at which the endogenous variable of a nonparametric regression model exceeds a certain threshold. If the error distribution is known, the regression
Efficiency of the empirical distribution for ergodic diffusion
TLDR
First a lower (minimax) bound is introduced on the risk of all estimators and then it is proved that the empirical distribution function attains this bound and hence this estimator is asymptotically efficient in the sense of the given bound.
