Algebraic Technique For Estimation

  • Time parameter estimation for a sum of sinusoidal waveform signals [39]:

    A novel algebraic method is proposed to estimate amplitudes, frequencies, and phases of a biased and noisy sum of complex exponential sinusoidal signals. The resulting parameter estimates are given by original closed formulas, constructed as integrals acting as time-varying filters of the noisy measured signal. The proposed algebraic method provides faster and more robust results, compared with usual procedures. Some computer simulations illustrate the efficiency of our method.

  • Algebraic estimation via orthogonal polynomials [80]:

    Many important problems in signal processing and control engineering concern the reconstitution of a noisy biased signal. For this issue, we consider the signal written as an orthogonal polynomial series expansion and we provide an algebraic estimation of its coefficients. We specialize in Hermite polynomials. On the other hand, the dynamical system described by the noisy biased signal may be given by an ordinary differential equation associated with classical orthogonal polynomials. The signal may be recovered through the coefficients identification. As an example, we illustrate our algebraic method on the parameter estimation in the case of Hermite polynomials.

  • An effective study of the algebraic parameter estimation problem [105]:

    Within the algebraic analysis approach, we first give a general formulation of the algebraic parameter estimation for signals which are defined by ordinary differential equations with polynomial coefficients such as the standard orthogonal polynomials (Chebyshev, Jacobi, Legendre, Laguerre, Hermite, ...  polynomials). We then show that the algebraic parameter estimation problem for a truncated expansion of a function into an orthogonal basis of L2 defined by orthogonal polynomials can be studied similarly. Then, using symbolic computation methods such as Gröbner basis techniques for (noncommutative) polynomial rings, we first show how to compute ordinary differential operators which annihilate a given polynomial and which contain only certain parameters in their coefficients. Then, we explain how to compute the intersection of the annihilator ideals of two polynomials and characterize the ordinary differential operators which annihilate a first polynomial but not a second one. These results are implemented in the Non-A package built upon the OreModules software.
