Degradation modeling for reliability analysis with time-dependent structure based on the inverse gaussian distribution
(Universidade Federal de São CarlosUFSCarPrograma de Pós-graduação em Estatística UFSCar/USPCâmpus São Carlos, 2017-04-07)
Conventional reliability analysis techniques are focused on the occurrence of failures over time. However, in certain situations where the occurrence of failures is tiny or almost null, the estimation of the quantities ...
Use of the q-Gaussian mutation in evolutionary algorithms
This paper proposes the use of the q-Gaussian mutation with self-adaptation of the shape of the mutation distribution in evolutionary algorithms. The shape of the q-Gaussian mutation distribution is controlled by a real ...

Reinforcement Learning using Gaussian Processes for Discretely Controlled Continuous Processes
In many application domains such as autonomous avionics, power electronics and process systems engineering there exist discretely controlled continuous processes (DCCPs) which constitute a special subclass of hybrid dynamical ...

Recovering Latent Signals from a Mixture of Measurements Using a Gaussian Process Prior
In sensing applications, sensors cannot always mea-sure the latent quantity of interest at the required resolution, some-times they can only acquire a blurred version of it due the sensor’stransfer function. To recover ...
On the determination of epsilon during discriminative GMM training
Discriminative training of Gaussian Mixture Models (GMMs) for speech or speaker recognition purposes is usually based on the gradient descent method, in which the iteration step-size, ε, uses to be defined experimentally. ...
