      Conforming spectral methods for Poisson problems in cuboidal domains 

      Karageorghis, Andreas (1994)
      A Chebyshev collocation strategy is introduced for the subdivision of cuboids into cuboidal subdomains (elements). These elements are conforming, which means that the approximation to the solution is C0 continuous at all ...

      Direct methods for spectral approximations in nonconforming domain decompositions 

      Karageorghis, Andreas; Paprzycki, M. (1998)
      The application of a conforming spectral collocation method to certain nonconforming domain decompositions leads to global matrices which have a particular block structure. We study the performance of various direct linear ...

      Distribution theory for the studentized mean for long, short, and negative memory time series 

      McElroy, T.; Politis, Dimitris Nicolas (2013)
      We consider the problem of estimating the variance of the partial sums of a stationary time series that has either long memory, short memory, negative/intermediate memory, or is the first-difference of such a process. The ...

      Frequency-domain characterization of Singular Spectrum Analysis eigenvectors 

      Leles, M. C. R.; Cardoso, A. S. V.; Moreira, M. G.; Guimaraes, H. N.; Silva, C. M.; Pitsillides, Andreas (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2017)
      Singular Spectrum Analysis (SSA) is a nonparametric approach used to decompose a time series into meaningful components, related to trends, oscillations and noise. SSA can be seen as a spectral decomposition, where each ...
