The system does not find any adverse voting patterns. As a partial remedy, I have personally upvoted the three downvoted questions.

Try looking at this for the 1D case and see if that helps.

comment Matlab: Help in learning EKF
The evolution of $x(t)$ appears to only depend on the initial condition of $x(0)$ and is not driven by anything else. Most KF and EKF formulations just ignore it, because it can be precisely known if the initial condition is known.

comment Making sense of mutual fund returns
More likely that the growth bounced up and down for the first four years and the fifth year was a bumper.

comment Who Owns the House?
This forum is not a legal advice forum, and I am not a lawyer. I'd sue for repayment of the renovation costs and drag it out for as long as possible. The lawsuit could keep any invocation of the will in legal limbo for years.

comment How can I pull a credit report on my 20-year-old son?
@Femaref : But I doubt you'd react in the same way if there were something to worry about. Your concerned-other should know you well enough to know the difference in the two reactions. That is all BrianDHall is saying.

comment Is it possible to auto compute for the optimal value of Lagrangian multiplier?
Most Lagrangian multiplier problems I've looked at do not allow a priori selection of $\lambda$. As you see from (3), the solution depends upon it. Also, shouldn't $\alpha$ in your first equation be $\lambda$? Otherwise (2) makes no sense.

comment PhD student, issued contract at year 3 which will sign over intellectual property. Is it legal?
I've never liked the opinion of university legal departments. I'd skip paragraph 2 and go straight to an outside opinion. +1, by the way. :-)

comment crest factor using matlab
Welcome to DSP.SE! This question is off-topic for this forum, because --- as stated --- you are asking for code written to a specification. This has very little to do with DSP. Hence the downvote (by someone else) and closure (by me).

comment Which tax year does a bonus fall under in Ireland?
If you were paid in 2012, then that is when you should be taxed. There might be some issue with leaving the jurisdiction though, even if you're working with the same company.
