Signal Processing and Bootstrap

Astronomers have developed their ways of processing signals almost independent to but sometimes collaboratively with engineers, although the fundamental of signal processing is same: extracting information. Doubtlessly, these two parallel roads of astronomers’ and engineers’ have been pointing opposite directions: one toward the sky and the other to the earth. Nevertheless, without an intensive argument, we could say that somewhat statistics has played the medium of signal processing for both scientists and engineers. This particular issue of IEEE signal processing magazine may shed lights for astronomers interested in signal processing and statistics outside the astronomical society.

IEEE Signal Processing Magazine Jul. 2007 Vol 24 Issue 4: Bootstrap methods in signal processing

This link will show the table of contents and provide links to articles; however, the access to papers requires IEEE Xplore subscription via libraries or individual IEEE memberships). Here, I’d like to attempt to introduce some articles and tutorials.

[ArXiv] 3rd week, Dec. 2007

The paper about the Banff challenge [0712.2708] and the statistics tutorial for cosmologists [0712.3028] are the personal recommendations from this week’s [arXiv] list. Especially, I’d like to quote from Licia Verde’s [astro-ph:0712.3028],

In general, Cosmologists are Bayesians and High Energy Physicists are Frequentists.

I thought it was opposite. By the way, if you crave for more papers, click Continue reading ‘[ArXiv] 3rd week, Dec. 2007’ »
