Maximum entropy spectral density estimation is a technique for reconstructing an unknown density function from some known measurements by maximizing a given measure of entropy of the estimate. Here we present a variety of new entropy measures which attempt to control derivative values of the densities. Our models apply among others to the inference problem based on the averaged Fisher information measure. The duality theory we develop resembles models used in convex optimal control problems. We present a variety of examples, including relaxed moment matching with Fisher information and best interpolation on a strip.


Membership to CARMA offers many benefits and is available by invitation to all University of Newcastle academic staff. Associate membership, also by invitation, is available to external researchers and practitioners for three-year renewable terms. Associate members are expected to visit CARMA with some frequency, typically for a total of three to four weeks in a year, and to be involved in one or more ongoing research projects with CARMA members. CARMA is able to assist with the travel and living costs of such visits.
