Wide-sense cyclostationary processes are an important class of non-stationary processes that have a periodic structure in their first- and second-order moments. This article extends the notion of cyclostationarity (in the wide sense) to processes where the mean and covariance functions might depart from strict periodicities and constant amplitudes.

In this paper, power allocation is examined for the coexistence of a radar and a communication system that employ multicarrier waveforms. We propose two designs for the considered spectrum sharing problem by maximizing the output signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) at the radar receiver while maintaining certain communication throughput and power constraints.

Hidden Markov models are widely used for target tracking, where the process and measurement noises are usually modeled as independent Gaussian distributions for mathematical simplicity. However, the independence and Gaussian assumptions do not always hold in practice. For example, in a typical target tracking application, a radar is utilized to track a non-cooperative target. 

Time-frequency (TF) representations of time series are intrinsically subject to the boundary effects. As a result, the structures of signals that are highlighted by the representations are garbled when approaching the boundaries of the TF domain. In this paper, for the purpose of real-time TF information acquisition of nonstationary oscillatory time series, we propose a numerically efficient approach for the reduction of such boundary effects.

Adopting low-resolution analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) for receive antennas of a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system can remarkably reduce the hardware cost, circuit power consumption as well as amount of data to be transferred from RF components and the baseband-processing unit.

In this paper, the particle filtering problem is investigated for a class of nonlinear/non-Gaussian systems with energy harvesting sensors subject to randomly occurring sensor saturations (ROSSs). The random occurrences of the sensor saturations are characterized by a series of Bernoulli distributed stochastic variables with known probability distributions.

In this paper, using the shrinkage-based approach for portfolio weights and modern results from random matrix theory we construct an effective procedure for testing the efficiency of the expected utility (EU) portfolio and discuss the asymptotic behavior of the proposed test statistic under the high-dimensional asymptotic regime, namely when the number of assets p increases at the same rate as the sample size n such that their ratio p/n approaches a positive constant c(0,1) as n .
