### Ensemble learning, multiple classifier system

I am trying to use a MCS (Multi classifier system) to do some better work on limited data i.e become more accurate. I am using K-means clustering at the moment but may choose to go with FCM (Fuzzy c-...

### What is the right way to extract particular frequency phase information from FFT?

Signals acquisition: Two proximity sensors are positioned Orthogonal to each other. These would be measuring the vibrations of a rotating shaft. Problem: Each of these 2 signals has two dominant ...

### Attempting to use the trapezoidal rule to form a difference equation representing a circuit

I have a differential equation that has been proven to be correct. The transfer function obtained by Laplace domain analysis and Matlab freqs match up and all is well. The problem is somewhere in ...

### How to evaluate performance of a simulated system

I have created a database (DB) of amplitde vs time delay of UWB pulses originating from various (known) points in a certain (known) "region" in a space. This DB also stores region name, since there ...

### BER based transmitter gain

Are there any direct relation formula between BER and Transmitter gain. The higher the transmitter gain is, the better the BER performance is. In here, I want to plot graph for the BER based on ...

### Intuitions on Kumaresan-Tufts algorithm for exponential fit

I am analyzing a transient signal presumably consisting of superposed exponentials. Such a case is indicated for the Prony analysis, but my data aren't noiseless enough, so I have turned to the ...

### Conceptual problem : numberof symbols for nonuniform distribution using entropy : how to determine block size?

A sequence of data of length $N$ can be subdivided into equal sixed blocks each of length (size) $l$. For each block, $w$, we can calculate the entropy known as the block entropy. Considering, entropy ...

### Why does the Stationary Wavelet Transform shift this image?

I am running a stationary wavelet transformation on a brain image. I can't understand why it shifts with each level so that the image is no longer centered. You can see that the X component shifts to ...
