Pixel-registered image fusion
One of the highest potential uses of image fusion is that of recognition of critical targets. The continuing image fusion question then is how to make optimal use of the often disparate forms of encountered image detail ...
Nondispersive triple-correlation spectrometer for trace gas analysis
We showed that the output of an autocorrelation with a gas spectrum could be triple-correlated to reduce the effects of Gaussian noise. Such processing is directly applicable to a correlation spectrometer but could be ...
Multiresolution binary optical correlator using the wavelet transform
We used morphological filters to approximate wavelet scaling functions for multiresolution processing of an image. Because some spatial light modulators (SLMs) can only display binary data, wavelet processing of binary ...
Partial least-squares: Theoretical issues and engineering applications in signal processing
In this paper we present partial least-squares (PLS), which is a statistical modeling method used extensively in analytical chemistry for quantitatively analyzing spectroscopic data. Comparisons are made between classical ...
Temporal measurement and analysis of high-resolution spectral signatures of plants and relationships to biophysical characteristics
Measurements of temporal reflectance signatures as a function of growing season for sand live oak (Quercus geminata), myrtle oak (Q. myrtifolia, and saw palmetto (Serenoa repens) were collected during a two year study ...
Methodology evaluation for remotely estimating water quality parameters in estuarine waters
Water absorption signatures were measured from water samples placed in a 50 cm pathlength cylindrical cuvette. Quantitative analysis of chlorophyll-a and dissolved organic matter (DOM- humic acid, fulvic acid, or tannic ...
Application of an optical remote sensing model
A simplified two-flow model derived from the radiative transfer problem applicable to a water column is described and applied. The application of the model to reflectance signatures measured in Delaware Bay estuarine waters ...
In vitro activity of levofloxacin, singly and in combination with rifamycin analogs, against Mycobacterium leprae
The in vitro susceptibility of Mycobacterium leprae to levofloxacin was studied by using two biochemical parameters to measure the metabolic activity of the organism. Levofloxacin consistently exhibited twofold greater ...
Stability of Conditionally Invariant Sets and Controlled Uncertain Dynamic Systems on Time Scales
A basic feedback control problem is that of obtaining some desired stability property from a system which contains uncertainties due to unknown inputs into the system. Despite such imperfect knowledge in the selected ...
Extension of the Method of Quasilinearization for Stochastic Initial Value Problems
In this paper we extend the method of quasilinearization to stochastic initial value problems. Further we prove that the iterates converge uniformly almost surely to the unique solution and the convergence is quadratic.
