Radio tomographic imaging (RTI) is an emerging technology to locate physical objects in a geographical area covered by wireless networks. From the attenuation measurements collected at spatially distributed sensors, radio tomography capitalizes on spatial loss fields (SLFs) measuring the absorption of radio frequency waves at each location along the propagation path.

In this paper, we propose a regular vine copula based methodology for the fusion of correlated decisions. Regular vine copula is an extremely flexible and powerful graphical model to characterize complex dependence among multiple modalities.

This paper addresses the design and analysis of feedback-based online algorithms to control systems or networked systems based on performance objectives and engineering constraints that may evolve over time. The emerging time-varying convex optimization formalism is leveraged to model optimal operational trajectories of the systems, as well as explicit local and network-level operational constraints.

In this paper, we address the problem of observability of a linear dynamical system from compressive measurements and the knowledge of its external inputs. Observability of a high-dimensional system state in general requires a correspondingly large number of measurements.

Distributed estimation fusion is concerned with the combination of local estimates from multiple distributed sensors to produce a fused result. In this paper, we characterize local estimates as posterior probability densities, and assume that they all belong to a parametric family. Our starting point is to consider this family as a Riemannian manifold by introducing the Fisher information metric.

Linear regression models contaminated by Gaussian noise (inlier) and possibly unbounded sparse outliers are common in many signal processing applications. Sparse recovery inspired robust regression (SRIRR) techniques are shown to deliver high-quality estimation performance in such regression models. Unfortunately, most SRIRR techniques assume a priori knowledge of noise statistics like inlier noise variance or outlier statistics like number of outliers.

Recently, many sparse arrays have been proposed to increase the number of degrees of freedom for direction of arrival (DoA) estimation especially for circular signals. Though many practical signals are noncircular, still the properties of noncircularity are hardly exploited in the design of sparse linear arrays. A new array geometry for noncircular signals, which significantly increases the aperture of the virtual array, has been proposed in this paper. 

Various signal processing applications can be expressed as large-scale optimization problems with a composite objective structure, where the Lipschitz constant of the smooth part gradient is either not known, or its local values may only be a fraction of the global value. The smooth part may be strongly convex as well. The algorithms capable of addressing this problem class in its entirety are black-box accelerated first-order methods, related to either Nesterov's Fast Gradient Method or the Accelerated Multistep Gradient Scheme, which were developed and analyzed using the estimate sequence mathematical framework.

Incorporating graphs in the analysis of multivariate signals is becoming a standard way to understand the interdependency of activity recorded at different sites. The new research frontier in this direction includes the important problem of how to assess dynamic changes of signal activity. We address this problem in a novel way by defining the graph-variate signal alongside methods for its analysis.

In this paper, four iterative algorithms for learning analysis operators are presented. They are built upon the same optimization principle underlying both Analysis K-SVD and Analysis SimCO. The forward and sequential analysis operator learning (AOL) algorithms are based on projected gradient descent with optimally chosen step size. The implicit AOL algorithm is inspired by the implicit Euler scheme for solving ordinary differential equations and does not require to choose a step size.
