Spline-based approaches have been applied to inverse problems in several areas. If proper spline bases are chosen, dimension of the problem can be significantly reduced while increasing estimation accuracy and robustness of the inverse procedure. We proposed Multivariate Adaptive Regression Splines (MARS) based methods for the solution of the inverse electrocardiography (ECG) problem considering the temporal and spatial evolution of the epicardial potentials. Our model defines the spline functions in terms of spatial parameters based on the given epicardial surface geometry. Thus, any change in geometry can alter the constructed model for the purpose of obtaining an accurate estimate. In this study, we focused on the effects of the geometric model inaccuracies on the proposed MARS-based approach.


Effect of estimation in goodness-of-fit tests
Eren, Emrah; Sürücü, Barış; Department of Statistics (2009)
In statistical analysis, distributional assumptions are needed to apply parametric procedures. Assumptions about underlying distribution should be true for accurate statistical inferences. Goodness-of-fit tests are used for checking the validity of the distributional assumptions. To apply some of the goodness-of-fit tests, the unknown population parameters are estimated. The null distributions of test statistics become complicated or depend on the unknown parameters if population parameters are replaced by ...
Effects of ECG Signal Processing on the Inverse Problem of Electrocardiography
Bear, Laura R.; Serinağaoğlu Doğrusöz, Yeşim; Svehlikova, J.; Coll-Font, J.; Good, W.; van Dam, E.; Macleod, R.; Abell, E.; Walton, R.; Coronel, R.; Haissaguerre, Michel; Dubois, R. (2018-01-01)
The inverse problem of electrocardiography is ill-posed. Errors in the model such as signal noise can impact the accuracy of reconstructed cardiac electrical activity. It is currently not known how sensitive the inverse problem is to signal processing techniques. To evaluate this, experimental data from a Langendorff-perfused pig heart (n=1) suspended in a human-shaped torso-tank was used. Different signal processing methods were applied to torso potentials recorded from 128 electrodes embedded in the tank...
Effect of water-filling method on the PAPR for OFDM and MIMO systems
Vural, Mehmet; Akta, Tugcan; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2007-06-13)
In this paper, the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) problem for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is investigated. The variations in the nature of the problem along with the utilization of water-filling technique are observed and the corresponding cumulative distribution function for PAPR is determined. In addition to OFDM analysis, another analysis is carried out for the comparison of water-filling technique and an equal power distribution algorithm in case of a multiple input multiple ou...
Mitigating the Multipath Effects of Low Angle Monopulse Tracking by Even Difference Pattern
Hizal, Altunkan; Koç, Seyit Sencer (2012-11-02)
In this study, low angle monopulse DF error due to multipath is dealt with using even difference pattern in a monopulse system. It is shown that the complex angle processing based on this approach has a potential to solve the problem. The multipath problem is modelled using both the specular and the diffuse scattering, while the random nature of the latter is also taken into account.
Impact of Rescaling Approaches in Simple Fusion of Soil Moisture Products
Afshar, Mahdı Hesamı ; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2019-09-10)
In this study, the impact of various rescaling approaches in the framework of data fusion is explored. Four different soil moisture products (Advanced Scatterometer; Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer for EOS, AMSR-E; Antecedent Precipitation Index; and Global Land Data Assimilation System-NOAH) are fused. The systematic differences between products are removed before the fusion utilizing various rescaling approaches focusing on different methods (regression, variance/cumulative distribution function (C...
