A major difficulty
In many (perhaps most) DSP applications we
don't have complete or perfect knowledge of the signals we wishto process. We are faced with many
unknowns and
uncertainties .
Examples
noisy measurements
unknown signal parameters
noisy system or environmental conditions
natural variability in the signals encountered
How can we design signal processing algorithms
in the face of such uncertainty?
Can we model the uncertainty and incorporate
this model into the design process?
Statistical signal processing is the
study of these questions.
Modeling uncertainty
The most widely accepted and commonly used
approach to modeling uncertainty is
Probability
Theory (although other alternatives exist such as Fuzzy
Logic).
Probability Theory models uncertainty by
specifying the
chance of observing certain
signals.
Alternatively, one can view probability as
specifying the degree to which we
believe a
signal reflects the true
state of nature .
Examples of probabilistic models
errors in a measurement (due to an imprecise measuring
device) modeled as realizations of a Gaussian randomvariable.
uncertainty in the phase of a sinusoidal signal
modeled as a uniform random variable on
$\left[0 , 2\pi \right)$ .
uncertainty in the number of photons stiking a CCD per
unit time modeled as a Poisson random variable.
Statistical inference
A
statistic is a function of
observed data.
Suppose we observe
$N$ scalar values
${x}_{1},,{x}_{N}$ . The following are statistics:
Statistics are used to draw
conclusions about probability models.
Probability models our uncertainty about
signals we
may observe.
Statistics reasons from the measured signal to
the population of possible signals.
Statistical signal processing
Step 1
Postulate a probability model (or models) that reasonably
capture the uncertainties at hand
Step 2
Collect data
Step 3
Formulate statistics that allow us to interpret or
understand our probability model(s)
In this class
The two major kinds of problems that we will
study are
detection and
estimation . Most SSP problems fall under one of
these two headings.
Detection theory
Given two (or more) probability models, which
on best explains the signal?
Examples
Decode wireless comm signal into string of 0's and
1's
Pattern recognition
voice recognition
face recognition
handwritten character recognition
Anomaly detection
radar, sonar
irregular, heartbeat
gamma-ray burst in deep space
Estimation theory
If our probability model has free parameters,
what are the best parameter settings to describe the signalwe've observed?
Examples
Noise reduction
Determine parameters of a sinusoid (phase, amplitude,
frequency)
Adaptive filtering
track trajectories of space-craft
automatic control systems
channel equalization
Determine location of a submarine (sonar)
Seismology: estimate depth below ground of an oil
deposit
Detection example
Suppose we observe
$N$ tosses of an unfair coin. We
would like to decide which side the coin favors, heads or tails.
Step 1
Assume each toss is a realization of a Bernoulli random
variable.
$$(\mathrm{Heads})=p=1-(\mathrm{Tails})$$ Must decide
$p=\frac{1}{4}$ vs.
$p=\frac{3}{4}$ .
Step 2
Collect data
${x}_{1},,{x}_{N}$$${x}_{i}=1\equiv \text{Heads}$$$${x}_{i}=0\equiv \text{Tails}$$
Step 3
Formulate a useful statistic
$$k=\sum_{n=1}^{N} {x}_{n}$$ If
$k< \frac{N}{2}$ , guess
$p=\frac{1}{4}$ . If
$k> \frac{N}{2}$ , guess
$p=\frac{3}{4}$ .
Estimation example
Suppose we take
$N$ measurements of a DC voltage
$A$ with a noisy voltmeter. We would
like to estimate
$A$ .
Step 1
Assume a Gaussian noise model
$${x}_{n}=A+{w}_{n}$$ where
$({w}_{n}, (0, 1))$ .
Step 2
Gather data
${x}_{1},,{x}_{N}$
Step 3
Compute the sample mean,
$$(A)=\frac{1}{N}\sum_{n=1}^{N} {x}_{n}$$ and use this as an estimate.
In these examples (
and
), we solved detection and
estimation problems using intuition and heuristics (in Step 3).
This course will focus on developing principled
and mathematically rigorous approaches to detection and estimation,using the theoretical framework of probability and statistics.

Questions & Answers
how to know photocatalytic properties of tio2 nanoparticles...what to do now
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field .
1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc
2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc
3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc.
and may other field for details you can check at Google
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change .
maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
