    Recently, particle filtering has become an effective algorithm for facial feature tracking. One problem with particle filtering is that as the dimensionality of the state space increases, a large number of particles that are propagated from the previous time are wasted in area where they have...

    This is the second of two papers that introduce a deformation theoretic framework to explain and broaden a link between homotopy algebra and probability theory. This paper outlines how the framework can assist in the development of homotopy probability theory, where a vector space of random...

  • Stochastic frontier models with threshold efficiency. Lee, Sungwon; Lee, Young // Journal of Productivity Analysis;Aug2014, Vol. 42 Issue 1, p45 

    This paper proposes a tail-truncated stochastic frontier model that allows for the truncation of technical efficiency from below. The truncation bound implies the inefficiency threshold for survival. Specifically, this paper assumes a uniform distribution of technical inefficiency and derives...

  • Assessing the evidence for response time mixture distributions. Dixon, P. // Behavior Research Methods;Sep2012, Vol. 44 Issue 3, p706 

    I describe a technique for comparing two simple accounts of a distribution of response times: A mixture model and a generalized-shift model. In the mixture model, a target distribution is assumed to be a mixture of response times from two other (reference) distributions. In the generalized-shift...

    The study on reliability of an aging structure requires taking into account the influence of time. Typical approaches for performing time-variant reliability assessment are always based upon the random process model, where the dynamic distributions of uncertain parameters are determined by a...

  • The equivalent-weights particle filter in a high-dimensional system. Ades, M.; van Leeuwen, P. J. // Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society;Jan2015, Vol. 141 Issue 687, p484 

    In general, particle filters need large numbers of model runs in order to avoid filter degeneracy in high-dimensional systems. The recently proposed, fully nonlinear equivalent-weights particle filter overcomes this requirement by replacing the standard model transition density with two...
