Initial Conditions and Moment Restrictions in Dynamic Panel Data Models
 Journal of Econometrics
, 1998
"... Estimation of the dynamic error components model is considered using two alternative linear estimators that are designed to improve the properties of the standard firstdifferenced GMM estimator. Both estimators require restrictions on the initial conditions process. Asymptotic efficiency comparisons ..."

A Simple, Fast, and Accurate Algorithm to Estimate Large Phylogenies by Maximum Likelihood
, 2003
"... The increase in the number of large data sets and the complexity of current probabilistic sequence evolution models necessitates fast and reliable phylogeny reconstruction methods. We describe a new approach, based on the maximumlikelihood principle, which clearly satisfies these requirements. The ..."

. The core of this method is a simple hillclimbing algorithm that adjusts tree topology and branch lengths simultaneously. This algorithm starts from an initial tree built by a fast distancebased method and modifies this tree to improve its likelihood at each iteration. Due to this simultaneous adjustment
Efficient Variants of the ICP Algorithm
 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON 3D DIGITAL IMAGING AND MODELING
, 2001
"... The ICP (Iterative Closest Point) algorithm is widely used for geometric alignment of threedimensional models when an initial estimate of the relative pose is known. Many variants of ICP have been proposed, affecting all phases of the algorithm from the selection and matching of points to the minim ..."

The Impact Of Outsourcing And HighTechnology Capital On Wages: Estimates For The United States, 19791990
, 1998
"... We estimate the relative influence of trade versus technology on wages in a "large country" setting, where technological change affects product prices. Trade is measured by the foreign outsourcing of intermediate inputs, while technological change is measured by expenditures on hightechno ..."

Iterative point matching for registration of freeform curves and surfaces
, 1994
"... A heuristic method has been developed for registering two sets of 3D curves obtained by using an edgebased stereo system, or two dense 3D maps obtained by using a correlationbased stereo system. Geometric matching in general is a difficult unsolved problem in computer vision. Fortunately, in ma ..."

, in many practical applications, some a priori knowledge exists which considerably simplifies the problem. In visual navigation, for example, the motion between successive positions is usually approximately known. From this initial estimate, our algorithm computes observer motion with very good precision
Detectability of Discrete Event Systems
"... In this paper, we investigate the detectability problem in discrete event systems. We assume that we do not know initially which state the system is in. The problem is to determine the current and subsequent states of the system based on a sequence of observation. The observation includes partial ev ..."

A Survey of Computer VisionBased Human Motion Capture
 Computer Vision and Image Understanding
, 2001
"... A comprehensive survey of computer visionbased human motion capture literature from the past two decades is presented. The focus is on a general overview based on a taxonomy of system functionalities, broken down into four processes: initialization, tracking, pose estimation, and recognition. Each ..."

A solution to the simultaneous localization and map building (SLAM) problem
 IEEE Transactions on Robotics and Automation
, 2001
"... Abstract—The simultaneous localization and map building (SLAM) problem asks if it is possible for an autonomous vehicle to start in an unknown location in an unknown environment and then to incrementally build a map of this environment while simultaneously using this map to compute absolute vehicle ..."

The underlying structure of the SLAM problem is first elucidated. A proof that the estimated map converges monotonically to a relative
Similarity Flooding: A Versatile Graph Matching Algorithm and Its Application to Schema Matching
, 2002
"... Matching elements of two data schemas or two data instances plays a key role in data warehousing, ebusiness, or even biochemical applications. In this paper we present a matching algorithm based on a fixpoint computation that is usable across different scenarios. The algorithm takes two graphs (sch ..."

matter of fact, we evaluate the ‘accuracy ’ of the algorithm by counting the number of needed adjustments. We conducted a user study, in which our accuracy metric was used to estimate the labor savings that the users could obtain by utilizing our algorithm to obtain an initial matching. Finally, we
Maximum Likelihood Linear Transformations for HMMBased Speech Recognition
 COMPUTER SPEECH AND LANGUAGE
