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.

Over the decades, multiple approaches have been proposed to solve convex programs. The development of interior-point methods allowed solving a more general set of convex programs known as semi-definite and second-order cone programs. However, these methods are excessively slow for high dimensions.

This paper presents the probability hypothesis density filter (PHD) and the cardinality PHD (CPHD) filter for sets of trajectories, which are referred to as the trajectory PHD (TPHD) and trajectory CPHD (TCPHD) filters. Contrary to the PHD/CPHD filters, the TPHD/TCPHD filters are able to produce trajectory estimates from first principles. 

Polar codes have gained extensive attention during the past few years and recently they have been selected for the next generation of wireless communications standards (5G). Successive-cancellation-based (SC-based) decoders, such as SC list (SCL) and SC flip (SCF), provide a reasonable error performance for polar codes at the cost of low decoding speed.

In this paper, we design and implement a new on-line portfolio selection strategy based on reversion mechanism and weighted on-line learning. Our strategy, called “Gaussian Weighting Reversion” (GWR), improves the reversion estimator to form optimal portfolios and effectively overcomes the shortcomings of existing on-line portfolio selection strategies.

Recently, a novel method for developing filtering algorithms, based on the interconnection of two Bayesian filters and called double Bayesian filtering, has been proposed. In this manuscript we show that the same conceptual approach can be exploited to devise a new smoothing method, called double Bayesian smoothing.

In this work, we propose a non-parametric sequential hypothesis test based on random distortion testing (RDT). RDT addresses the problem of testing whether or not a random signal, Ξ , observed in independent and identically distributed (i.i.d) additive noise deviates by more than a specified tolerance, τ , from a fixed model, ξ0 .
