On the reduction of Gaussian inverse Wishart mixtures

Granström, Karl
Orguner, Umut
This paper presents an algorithm for reduction of Gaussian inverse Wishart mixtures. Sums of an arbitrary number of mixture components are approximated with single components by analytically minimizing the Kullback-Leibler divergence. The Kullback-Leibler difference is used as a criterion for deciding whether or not two components should be merged, and a simple reduction algorithm is given. The reduction algorithm is tested in simulation examples in both one and two dimensions. The results presented in the paper are useful in extended target tracking using the random matrix framework.

On the Poisson sum formula for the analysis of wave radiation and scattering from large finite arrays
Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Chou, HT (1999-05-01)
Poisson sum formulas have been previously presented and utilized in the literature [1]-[8] for converting a finite element-by-element array field summation into an alternative representation that exhibits improved convergence properties with a view toward more efficiently analyzing wave radiation/scattering from electrically large finite periodic arrays. However, different authors [1]-[6] appear to use two different versions of the Poisson sum formula; one of these explicitly shows the end-point discontinui...
Improving the big bang-big crunch algorithm for optimum design of steel frames
Hasançebi, Oğuzhan (null; 2012-01-01)
This paper presents an improved version of the big bang-big crunch (BB-BC) algorithm namely exponential BB-BC algorithm (EBB-BC) for optimum design of steel frames according to ASD-AISC provisions. It is shown that the standard version of the algorithm sometimes is unable to provide reasonable solutions for problems from discrete design optimization of steel frames. Therefore, by investigating the shortcomings of the BB-BC algorithm, it is aimed to enhance the algorithm for solving complicated steel frame o...
On the arithmetic operations over finite fields of characteristic three with low complexity
AKLEYLEK, SEDAT; Özbudak, Ferruh; Özel, Claire Susanna (2014-03-15)
In this paper, the Hermite polynomial representation is adapted as a new way to represent certain finite fields of characteristic three. We give the multiplication method to multiply two elements of F-3n in the Hermite polynomial representation with subquadratic computational complexity by using a divide-and-conquer idea. We show that in some cases there is a set of irreducible binomials in the Hermite polynomial representation to obtain modular reduction with a lower addition complexity than the standard p...
On the generalisation of special moduli for faster interleaved montgomery modular multiplication
AKLEYLEK, SEDAT; Cenk, Murat; Özbudak, Ferruh (2013-09-01)
In this study, the authors give a generalisation of special moduli for faster interleaved Montgomery modular multiplication algorithm with simplified pre-computational phase for GF(p(n)), where p 2 is a prime number and n is a positive integer. The authors propose different sets of moduli that can be used in elliptic curve crytographic applications and pairing-based cryptography. Moreover, this method also leads to efficient implementations for the elliptic curve parameters given in standards. It is shown t...
Computation of the Primary Decomposition of Polynomial Ideals Using Gröbner Bases
Tolgay, Betül; Karayayla, Tolga; Department of Mathematics (2021-8-06)
In this thesis, we investigate algorithms for computing primary decompositions of ideals in polynomial rings. Every ideal in a polynomial ring over a Noetherian commutative ring with identity has a primary decomposition, that is, it can be expressed as the intersection of primary ideals (in a unique way or not). The existence of primary decompositions in such polynomial rings is a result of the ascending chain condition and the existence proof does not suggest any construction method for the primary compone...
