abstract = {Two alternative exact characterizations of the minimum error probability of Bayesian M-ary hypothesis testing are derived. The first expression corresponds to the error probability of an induced binary hypothesis test and implies the tightness of the meta-converse bound by Polyanskiy et al.; the second expression is a function of an information-spectrum measure and implies the tightness of a generalized Verd\'{u}-Han lower bound. The formulas characterize the minimum error probability of several problems in information theory and help to identify the steps where existing converse bounds are loose.},

abstract = {The internationalization of a company is widely understood as the corporative strategy for growing through external markets. It usually embodies a hard process, which affects diverse activities of the value chain and impacts on the organizational structure of the company. There is not a general model for a successful international company, so the success of an internationalization procedure must be estimated based on different variables addressing the status, strategy and market characteristics of the company at hand. This paper presents a novel hybrid soft-computing approach for evaluating the internationalization success of a company based on existing past data. Specifically, we propose a hybrid algorithm composed by a grouping-based harmony search (HS) approach and an extreme learning machine (ELM) ensemble. The proposed hybrid scheme further incorporates a feature selection method, which is obtained by means of a given group in the HS encoding format, whereas the ELM ensemble renders the final accuracy metric of the model. Practical results for the proposed hybrid technique are obtained in a real application based on the exporting success of Spanish manufacturing companies, which are shown to be satisfactory in comparison with alternative state-of-the-art techniques.},

abstract = {In signal processing, it is typical to develop or use a method based on a given model. In practice, however, we almost never know the actual model and we hope that the assumed model is in the neighborhood of the true one. If deviations exist, the method may be more or less sensitive to them. Therefore, it is important to know more about this sensitivity, or in other words, how robust the method is to model deviations. To that end, it is useful to have a metric that can quantify the robustness of the method. In this paper we propose a procedure for developing a variety of metrics for measuring robustness. They are based on a discrete random variable that is generated from observed data and data generated according to past data and the adopted model. This random variable is uniform if the model is correct. When the model deviates from the true one, the distribution of the random variable deviates from the uniform distribution. One can then employ measures for differences between distributions in order to quantify robustness. In this paper we describe the proposed methodology and demonstrate it with simulated data.},

abstract = {Cost-reference particle filtering is a methodology for tracking unknowns in a system without reliance on probabilistic information about the noises in the system. The methodology is based on analogous principles as the ones of standard particle filtering. Unlike the random measures of standard particle filters that are composed of particles and weights, the random measures of cost-reference particle filters contain particles and user-defined costs. In this paper, we discuss a few scenarios where we need to meld random measures of two or more cost-reference particle filters. The objective is to obtain a fused random measure that combines the information from the individual cost-reference particle filters.},

abstract = {One of the most basic problems in science and engineering is the assessment of a considered model. The model should describe a set of observed data and the objective is to find ways of deciding if the model should be rejected. It seems that this is an ill-conditioned problem because we have to test the model against all the possible alternative models. In this paper we use the Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistic to develop a test that shows if the model should be kept or it should be rejected. We explain how this testing can be implemented in the context of particle filtering. We demonstrate the performance of the proposed method by computer simulations.},
