In this paper, recent results on the evaluation of the Bayesian Cramer-Rao bound for jump Markov systems are presented. In particular, previous work is extended to jump Markov systems where the discrete mode variable enters into both the process and measurement equation, as well as where it enters exclusively into the measurement equation. Recursive approximations are derived with finite memory requirements as well as algorithms for checking the validity of these approximations are established. The tightness of the bound and the validity of its approximation is investigated on a couple of examples.


Functional Mesh Model with Temporal Measurements for Brain Decoding
Onal, Itir; Ozay, Mete; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay (2015-08-29)
We propose a method called Functional Mesh Model with Temporal Measurements (FMM-TM) to estimate a functional relationship among voxels using temporal data, and employ these relationships for brain decoding. For each sample, we measure Blood Oxygenation Level Dependent (BOLD) responses from each voxel, and construct a functional mesh around each voxel (called seed voxel) with its nearest neighbors selected using distance metrics namely Pearson correlation, cosine similarity and Euclidean distance. Then, we ...
Bobrovsky-Zakai Bound for Filtering, Prediction and Smoothing of Nonlinear Dynamic Systems
Fritsche, Carsten; Orguner, Umut; Gustafsson, Fredrik (2018-07-13)
In this paper, recursive Bobrovsky-Zakai bounds for filtering, prediction and smoothing of nonlinear dynamic systems are presented. The similarities and differences to an existing Bobrovsky-Zakai bound in the literature for the filtering case are highlighted. The tightness of the derived bounds are illustrated on a simple example where a linear system with non-Gaussian measurement likelihood is considered. The proposed bounds are also compared with the performance of some well-known filters/predictors/smoot...
On the use of complex stretching coordinates in generalized finite difference method with applications in inhomogeneous visco-elasto dynamics
Korkut, Fuat; Mengi, Yalcin; Tokdemir, Turgut (2022-01-01)
In the study, in conjunction with perfectly matched layer (PML) analysis, an approach is proposed for the evaluation of complex derivatives directly in terms of complex stretching coordinates of points in PML. For doing this within the framework of generalized finite difference method (GFDM), a difference equation is formulated and presented, where both the function values and coordinates of data points might be complex. The use of the proposed approach is considered in the analysis of inhomogeneous visco-e...
Formulation of a beam finite element for micro beams
Pehlivanoğlu, Yücel; Kadıoğlu, Fevzi Suat; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2018)
This study presents an Euler Bernoulli type micro-beam finite element for analyzing the size-dependent static and dynamic behavior of micro beams. The new element is based on Modified Couple Stress Theory (MCST). The governing equations of motion and the boundary conditions for the beam are derived and the conventional Galerkin technique is employed to formulate the finite element. The new element can be reduced to Classical Euler-Bernoulli beam element if the size-effect parameter in the element matrices i...
Systematic Analysis on the Optical Properties of Chiral Metamaterial Slab for Microwave Polarization Control
Comez, I.; KARAASLAN, MUHARREM; Dincer, F.; KARADAĞ, FATOŞ; Sabah, C. (2015-05-01)
Theoretical and numerical of investigation of the chiral slab exhibiting polarization rotation is presented in detail. The effects of the chirality, thickness of medium, dielectric constant, and incident angle are analyzed in order to display the characteristic features of the chiral slab both for TE and TM incident waves. The chiral slab then is realized by using a full wave EM simulation software in order to validate the numerical results in which the numerical and simulation results are in good agreement...
