Maximum likelihood estimation of the position of a radiating source in a waveguide
(Acoustical Society of America, 1979-09)
An array of sensors is receiving radiation from a source of interest. The source and the array are in a one-or two-dimensional waveguide. The maximum-likelihood estimators of the coordinates of the source are analysed under ...
Estimating bearing when the source is endfire to an array
(Acoustical Society of America, 1979-03)
Consider the problem of estimating the direction of arrival of a plane wave using a linear array of length L with M sensors. Let 0 denote the direction with respect to the array axis. Assume that we know that 0 >0. The ...
On errors in some papers on array processing
(Acoustical Society of America, 1979-02)
Some errors in the literature are noted concerning the calculation of the maximum-likelihood estimator.
Statistical approach to passive target tracking
(Acoustical Society of America, 1981-03)
The paper presents a method for passively tracking a moving target using a sequence of bearings from a surveillance platform. The key assumption for the method is that the target is moving at a constant speed on a fixed ...
Estimating signal and noise using a random array
(Acoustical Society of America, 1982-01)
This paper presents approximations for the rms error of the maximum likelihood estimator of the direction of a plane wave incident on a random array. The sensor locations are assumed to be realizations of independent, ...
Why the Decision Theoretic Perspective Misrepresents Frequentist Inference: 'Nuts and Bolts' vs. Learning from Data
The primary objective of this paper is to revisit and make a case for the merits of R.A. Fisher's objections to the decision-theoretic framing of frequentist inference. It is argued that this framing is congruent with the ...
Reversal of Fortunes: The Rise and Fall of Lifetime Earnings of Iranian Men
(University of Chicago Press, 2011-07)
The Islamic Revolution of 1979, the 8-year war with Iraq (1980-88), and the collapse of oil prices in 1986 dealt huge blows to Iran's economy. In this article, we use a pseudopanel constructed from annual multiple surveys ...
Women's College Decisions: How Much Does Marriage Matter?
(University of Chicago Press, 2011-10)
This article investigates the sequential college attendance decision of young women and quantifies the effect of marriage expectations on their decision to attend and graduate from college. A dynamic choice model of college ...
