We describe conjugate gradient algorithms for reconstruction of transmission and emission PET images. The reconstructions are based on a Bayesian formulation, where the data are modeled as a collection of independent Poisson random variables and the image is modeled using a Markov random field. A conjugate gradient algorithm is used to compute a maximum a posteriori (MAP) estimate of the image by maximizing over the posterior density. To ensure nonnegativity of the solution, a penalty function is used to convert the problem to one of unconstrained optimization. Preconditioners are used to enhance convergence rates, These methods generally achieve effective convergence in 15-25 iterations. Reconstructions are presented of an (18)FDG whole body scan from data collected using a Siemens/CTI ECAT931 whole body system. These results indicate significant improvements in emission image quality using the Bayesian approach, in comparison to filtered backprojection, particularly when reprojections of the MAP transmission image are used in place of the standard attenuation correction factors.

Robust Attitude Estimation Using IMU-Only Measurements
Candan, Batu; Söken, Halil Ersin (2021-01-01)
© 1963-2012 IEEE.This article proposes two novel covariance-tuning methods to form a robust Kalman filter (RKF) algorithm for attitude (i.e., roll and pitch) estimation using the measurements of only an inertial measurement unit (IMU). KF-based and complementary filtering (CF)-based approaches are the two common methods for solving the attitude estimation problem. Efficiency and optimality of the KF-based attitude filters are correlated with appropriate tuning of the covariance matrices. Manual tuning proce...
Multiple Description Coding of 3D Dynamic Meshes Based on Temporal Subsampling
Bici, M. Oguz; Akar, Gözde (2010-01-21)
In this paper, we propose a Multiple Description Coding (MDC) method for reliable transmission of compressed time consistent 3D dynamic meshes. It trades off reconstruction quality for error resilience to provide the best expected reconstruction of 3D mesh sequence at the decoder side. The method is based on partitioning the mesh frames into two sets by temporal subsampling and encoding each set independently by a 3D dynamic mesh coder. The encoded independent bitstreams or so-called descriptions are transm...
Chaos from equivariant fields on fuzzy S4
Coşkun, Ü. H.; Kürkcüoğlu, Seçkin; Toga, G. C.; Ünal, G. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-12)
We examine the 5d Yang-Mills matrix model in 0 + 1-dimensions with U(4N) gauge symmetry and a mass deformation term. We determine the explicit SU(4) ≈ SO(6) equivariant parametrizations of the gauge field and the fluctuations about the classical four concentric fuzzy four sphere configuration and obtain the low energy reduced actions(LEAs) by tracing over the SF 4s for the first five lowest matrix levels. The LEAs so obtained have potentials bounded from below indicating that the equivariant fluctuations ab...
Efficient algorithms for convolutional inverse problems in multidimensional imaging
Doğan, Didem; Öktem, Figen S.; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2020)
Computational imaging is the process of indirectly forming images from measurements using image reconstruction algorithms that solve inverse problems. In many inverse problems in multidimensional imaging such as spectral and depth imaging, the measurements are in the form of superimposed convolutions related to the unknown image. In this thesis, we first provide a general formulation for these problems named as convolutional inverse problems, and then develop fast and efficient image reconstruction algorith...
Free vibration characteristics of a 3d mixed formulation beam element with force-based consistent mass matrix
Soydas, Ozan; Sarıtaş, Afşin (2017-09-01)
In this analytical study, free vibration analyses of a 3d mixed formulation beam element are performed by adopting force-based consistent mass matrix that incorporates shear and rotary inertia effects. The force-based approach takes into account the actual distribution of mass of an element in the derivation of the mass matrix. Moreover, the force-based approach enables accurate determination of free vibration frequencies of members with varying geometry and material distribution without any need for specif...
