Parallelization algorithms for modeling ARM processes

AutoRegressive Modular (ARM) processes are a new class of nonlinear stochastic processes, which can accurately model a large class of stochastic processes, by capturing the empirical distribution and ... paper, we assume that all stochastic processes are defined over some probability space, (f, 5, P). 2.1 TES Processes In order to fix the ideas and keep the presentation concise, we shall focus on the

Probability Model for Data Redundancy Detection in Sensor Networks

Poisson processes, through which sensors are distributed in a plane, is derived. A probability condition is established for data redundancy among closely located sensor nodes.

Stationary vectors of stochastic matrices subject to combinatorial constraints

Given a strongly connected directed graph D, let S_D denote the set of all stochastic matrices whose directed graph is a spanning subgraph of D. We consider the problem of completely describing the ... a brief overview of the theory of stochastic complementation here (see [ 19 ] for a more in-depth discussion and rigorous proofs). Suppose that we have an irreducible stochastic matrix A with
