Entropy Calculation in Particle Filters

2009-04-11
This paper presents a differential entropy calculation method to be used for particle mixtures in particle filters. First it is shown that the exact differential entropy of particle mixtures is minus infinity and therefore useless in practice. The disadvantage of using discrete entropy formulation instead of differential entropy is also explained. Unlike the kernel-based methods in the literature, a Bayes rule based approximation is then proposed. The performance of the algorithm is illustrated on a basic Gaussian mixture example.

Particle Filtering with Propagation Delayed Measurements
Orguner, Umut (2010-03-13)
This paper investigates the problem of propagation delayed measurements in a particle filtering scenario. Based on implicit constraints specified by target dynamics and physics rules of signal propagation, authors apply the ideas that were first proposed in their previous work to the case of particle filters. Unlike the deterministic sampling based approach called propagation delayed measurement filter (PDMF) in their previous work, the new algorithm proposed here (called as PDM particle filter (PDM-PF)) ha...
Combined Point-Mass and Particle Filter for Target Tracking
Orguner, Umut; Tornqvist, David; Gustafsson, Fredrik (2010-03-13)
This paper presents a combined Point Mass Filter (PMF) and Particle Filter (PF), which utilizes the support of the PMF and the high particle density in the PF close to the current estimate. The result is a filter robust to unexpected process events but still with low error covariance. This filter is especially useful for target tracking applications, where target maneuvers suddenly can change unpredictably.
Quantum aspects of the noncommutative Sine-Gordon model
Kürkcüoğlu, Seçkin (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2007-09-01)
In this paper, we first use semi-classical methods to study quantum field theoretical aspects of the integrable noncommutative sine-Gordon model proposed in [hep-th/0406065]. In particular, we examine the fluctuations at quadratic order around the static kink solution using the background field method. We derive equations of motion for the fluctuations and argue that at O(θ2) the spectrum of fluctuations remains essentially the same as that of the corresponding commutative theory. We compute the one-loop tw...
Implicit lattice boltzmann method for laminar/turbulent flows
Çevik, Fatih; Albayrak, Kahraman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2016)
Lattice Boltzmann Method is an alternative computational method for fluid physics problems. The development of the method started in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Various numerical schemes like stream and collide, finite difference, finite element and finite volume schemes are used to solve the discrete Lattice Boltzmann Equation. Almost all of the numerical schemes in the literature are explicit schemes to exploit the natural features of the discrete Lattice Boltzmann Equation like parallelism and easy c...
Spectroscopic measurements of electron temperature and electron density in electron beam plasma generator based on collisional radiative model
Goktas, H.; Demir, A.; Kacar, E.; Hegazy, H.; Turan, Raşit; Oke, G.; Seyhan, A. (Informa UK Limited, 2007-01-01)
The current work describes a spectroscopic method for determining the electron temperature and electron density in an electron beam generator using argon spectral lines based on a collisional radiative model. Neutral and first-ionized Ar lines emitted from the electron beam generator are studied experimentally. A collisional radiative code was developed to simulate the Ar (I) and Ar (II) spectral emission and to compare the results with the experimental data for electron density and temperature determinatio...
