Minisymposium (ID: SS-MSEPSW)
Multitaper Spectrum Estimation, Prolate Spheroidal Wave Functions, Quadratic-Inverse, and Related Problem
Organizers: Wesley Burr, Charlotte Haley and David J. Thomson,
Since its invention in 1982, the multitaper spectrum estimation tool
has become an integral part of signal processing. The underlying theory
of the multitaper relies heavily on the Prolate Spheroidal Wave
Functions and Sequences (shortened to prolates), as explored
by Slepian, Pollak and Landau. This mini-symposium is intended to serve
two purposes. The first is to explore the development and application
of the multitaper tool to diverse scientific fields, especially those
involving nonlinear and nonstationary data sets. The second is to
examine current research on prolates, especially (but not limited to)
computational and algorithmic developments. Our hope is that the
cross-fertilization between these two traditionally unrelated fields
will spark new applications and research opportunities. We especially
welcome talks on the theory and sampling properties of prolate-based
and Quadratic-Inverse-type estimators.
