      Serel, D. A. (Elsevier, 2009)
      For monitoring the stability of a process, various control charts based on exponentially weighted moving average (EWMA) statistics have been proposed in the literature. We study the economic design of EWMA-based mean and ...

      Zalevsky, Z.; Medlovic, D.; Ozaktas, H. M. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2000)
      The mutual intensity distribution of a light beam may contain available information. The task of encoding a given mutual intensity distribution is addressed in this paper. Various approaches for encoding the mutual intensity ...
