This work examines a distributed learning problem where the agents of a network form their beliefs about certain hypotheses of interest. Each agent collects streaming (private) data and updates continually its belief by means of a diffusion strategy, which blends the agent’s data with the beliefs of its neighbors. We focus on weakly-connected graphs, where the network is partitioned into sending and receiving sub-networks, and we allow for heterogeneous models across the agents.

Principal component analysis is one of the most commonly used methods for dimensionality reduction in signal processing. However, the most commonly used PCA formulation is based on the L2 -norm, which can be highly influenced by outlier data. In recent years, there has been growing interest in the development of more robust PCA methods. 

This paper formulates a multitask optimization problem where agents in the network have individual objectives to meet, or individual parameter vectors to estimate, subject to a smoothness condition over the graph. The smoothness condition softens the transition in the tasks among adjacent nodes and allows incorporating information about the graph structure into the solution of the inference problem.

In this paper, we analyze the two-node joint clock synchronization and ranging problem. We focus on the case of nodes that employ time-to-digital converters to determine the range between them precisely. This specific design choice leads to a sawtooth model for the captured signal, which has not been studied before from an estimation theoretic standpoint.

Active control of noise for multi-channel applications is affected by the existence of nonlinear primary and secondary paths. There is a degradation in the performance of linear multi-channel active noise control (LMANC) systems based on minimization of sum of squared errors obtained from multiple sensors in presence of nonlinear primary path (NPP) and nonlinear secondary path (NSP) conditions.
