An observational study of the precedence effect

2006-05-01
This paper proposes a framework model for the analysis of sound source localisation under the precedence effect using Gaussian mixtures. The model quantifies the effect of the lagging sound over the angular position and the width of the perceived auditory event, and incorporates some well-known aspects of the precedence effect in a single framework. Two sound source localisation experiments were carried out in order to show the utility of the proposed model. In the first experiment, the localisation accuracy for single sound sources was measured. In the second experiment, the subjects localised spectrally coherent lead-lag stimulus pairs with different angular separations. The responses were analysed using the proposed model. It is shown that the model can be used for assessing the fusion, localisation dominance, and the lag discrimination suppression aspects of the precedence effect as well as the associated widening of the auditory event.

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...
An Efficient Approach for Evaluation of Multilayered Media Green's Functions
ÖZGÜN, ÖZLEM; Li, Chao; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Mittra, Raj (2021-01-01)
© 2021 IEEE.In this study, a novel approach is presented for efficient evaluation of Sommerfeld integrals arising in spatial-domain Green's functions in planar multilayered media. This approach allows us to tackle the difficulties encountered during the integration of the Sommerfeld integrals, which exhibit highly oscillatory and slowly decaying nature occurring especially at very high frequencies, e.g., at millimeter waves, that are finding increasing use in applications such as 5G and beyond. The oscillat...
AN ANALYSIS TO IMPROVE STABILITY OF DRIVE-MODE OSCILLATIONS IN CAPACITIVE VIBRATORY MEMS GYROSCOPES
Alper, S. E.; Sahin, K.; Akın, Tayfun (2009-01-29)
This paper presents an analysis showing that it is possible to determine the factors that limit the stability of drive-mode oscillations of a vibratory MEMS gyroscope with precise modeling. Specifically, unwanted electrical resonance characteristics of the gyroscope drive-mode are analyzed together with analytical expressions, whereas the results of the theoretical analyses are verified both by simulations and measurements, which agree very well. It is demonstrated that the stability of the drive-mode oscil...
An additive cost approach to optimal Temporal Logic control
Aydın Göl, Ebru (2014-07-21)
This paper presents a provably-correct Model Predictive Control (MPC) scheme for a discrete-time linear system. The cost is a quadratic that penalizes the distance from desired state and control trajectories, which are only available over a finite horizon. Correctness is specified as a syntactically co-safe Linear Temporal Logic (scLTL) formula over a set of linear predicates in the states of the system. The proposed MPC controller solves a set of convex optimization problems guided by the specification. Th...
An algorithm for line matching in an image by mapping into an n-dimensional vector space
Sultanov, Raiymbek; Atakan, Ahmet; Ismailova, Rita (2019-01-01)
This paper proposes a minimal length difference algorithm for construction of a line in an image by solving the problem of optimal contour approximation. In this algorithm, a method for finding interest points is proposed, and the object matching (classification) is done by mapping interest points onto a vector space. In cases where the lines in the representation of the images are not smooth, the algorithm converges rapidly. The results of the experiments showed that for convergence of the contour simplifi...
