This paper presents a flexible array response control algorithm via oblique projection, abbreviated as FARCOP, and its application to array pattern synthesis. The proposed FARCOP algorithm stems from the adaptive array theory, and it can flexibly, precisely and simultaneously adjust the array response levels at multiple angles based on an arbitrarily given weight vector.

Intelligent mobile platforms such as smart vehicles and drones have recently become the focus of attention for onboard deployment of machine learning mechanisms to enable low latency decisions with low risk of privacy breach.

In this paper, we propose a novel sparse signal recovery algorithm called the trainable iterative soft thresholding algorithm (TISTA). The proposed algorithm consists of two estimation units: a linear estimation unit and a minimum mean squared error (MMSE) estimator based shrinkage unit.

In classification theory, it is generally assumed that the data are independent and identically distributed. However, in many practical applications, we face a set of observations that are collected sequentially with a dependence structure among samples.

It is well known that the convergence of Gaussian belief propagation (BP) is not guaranteed in loopy graphs. The classical convergence conditions, including diagonal dominance, walk-summability, and convex decomposition, are derived under pairwise factorizations of the joint Gaussian distribution. However, many applications run Gaussian BP under high-order factorizations, making the classical results not applicable.

Spike estimation from calcium (Ca 2+ ) fluorescence signals is a fundamental and challenging problem in neuroscience. Several models and algorithms have been proposed for this task over the past decade. Nevertheless, it is still hard to achieve accurate spike positions from the Ca 2+ fluorescence signals. While existing methods rely on data-driven methods and the physiology of neurons for modeling the spiking process, this paper exploits the nature of the fluorescence responses to spikes using signal processing.

This paper introduces a node-asynchronous communication protocol in which an agent in a network wakes up randomly and independently, collects states of its neighbors, updates its own state, and then broadcasts back to its neighbors. This protocol differs from consensus algorithms and it allows distributed computation of an arbitrary eigenvector of the network, in which communication between agents is allowed to be directed.

In this paper, we study the problem of recovering a group sparse vector from a small number of linear measurements. In the past, the common approach has been to use various “group sparsity-inducing” norms such as the Group LASSO norm for this purpose. By using the theory of convex relaxations, we show that it is also possible to use 1 -norm minimization for group sparse recovery.

In this paper, we devise a communication-efficient decentralized algorithm, named as communication-censored alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) (COCA), to solve a convex consensus optimization problem defined over a network. Similar to popular decentralized consensus optimization algorithms such as ADMM, at every iteration of COCA, a node exchanges its local variable with neighbors, and then updates its local variable according to the received neighboring variables and its local cost function. 

A major drawback of subspace methods for direction-of-arrival estimation is their poor performance in the presence of coherent sources. Spatial smoothing is a common solution that can be used to restore the performance of these methods in such a case at the cost of increased array size requirement. In this paper, a Hadamard product perspective of the source resolvability problem of spatial-smoothing-based subspace methods is presented.
