2015.06 Article title: Approximated fast estimator for the shape parameter of generalized Gaussian distribution for a small sample size
Publication: Robert Krupinski, Bulletin of the Polish Academy of Sciences: Technical Sciences 63 (2), (2015)
Abstract. Most estimators of the shape parameter of generalized Gaussian distribution (GGD) assume asymptotic case when there is available infinite number of observations, but in the real case, there is only available a set of limited size. The most popular estimator for the shape parameter, i.e., the maximum likelihood (ML) method, has a larger variance with a decreasing sample size. A very high value of variance for a very small sample size makes this estimation method very inaccurate. A new fast approximated method based on the standardized moment to overcome this limitation is introduced in the article. The relative mean square error (RMSE) was plotted for the range 0.3-3 of the shape parameter for comparison with other methods. The method does not require any root finding, any long look-up table or multi step approach, therefore it is suitable for real-time data processing.

"Orad's new integration elminates a critical gap in the graphics production workflow," comments Avi Sharir, CEO and president, Orad. "Until now, After Effects designers would create motion graphics primarily for pre-visualization and post-production. For on-air broadcasts, these designs would have to be re-created in the authoring software. With the new 3Designer plugin, artists can export AE projects into 3Designer. There is no need to recreate elements, thus saving a tremendous amount of time."
