The traditional stochastic resonance is realized by adding an optimal amount of noise, while the parameter-tuning stochastic resonance is realized by optimally tuning the system parameters. This paper reveals the possibility to further enhance the stochastic resonance effect by tuning system parameters and adding noise at the same time using optimization theory. The further improvement of the maximal normalized power norm of the bistable double-well dynamic system with white Gaussian noise input can be converted to an optimization problem with constraints on system parameters and noise intensity, which is proven to have one and only one local maximum for the Gaussian-distributed weak input signal. This result is then extended to the arbitrary weak input signal case. For the purpose of practical implementation, a fast-converging optimization algorithm to search the optimal system parameters and noise intensity is also proposed. Finally, computer simulations are performed to verify its validity and demonstrate its potential applications in signal processing.
Error correction in existing point-to-point communication networks is done on a link-by-link basis, which is referred to in this paper as classical error correction. Inspired by network coding, we introduce in this two-part paper a new paradigm called network error correction. The theory thus developed subsumes classical algebraic coding theory as a special case. In Part I, we discuss the basic concepts and prove the network generalizations of the Hamming bound and the Singleton bound in classical algebraic coding theory. By studying a few elementary examples, the relation between network error correction and classical error correction is investigated.
In Part I of this paper, we introduced the paradigm of network error correction as a generalization of classical link-by-link error correction. We also obtained the network generalizations of the Hamming bound and the Singleton bound in classical algebraic coding theory. In Part II, we prove the network generalization of the Gilbert-Varshamov bound and its enhancement. With the latter, we show that the tightness of the Singleton bound is preserved in the network setting. We also discuss the implication of the results in this paper.
In this paper we give a basic derivation of smoothing and interpolating splines and through this derivation we show that the basic spline construction can be done through elementary Hilbert space techniques. Smoothing splines are shown to naturally separate into a filtering problem on the raw data and an interpolating spline construction. Both the filtering algorithm and the interpolating spline construction can be effectively implemented. We show that a variety of spline problems can be formulated into this common construction. By this construction we are also able to generalize the construction of smoothing splines to continuous data, a spline like filtering algorithm. Through the control theoretic approach it is natural to add multiple constraints and these techniques are developed in this paper.
