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, Queen's University

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.
