ABSTRACT The stochastic resonance effect can be realized by tuning system parameters or by adding noise. This paper investigates the possibility to enhance the stochastic resonance effect by tuning system parameters and adding noise simultaneously. First, we use examples to demonstrate the situation where only the system parameters or noise can be adjusted to maximize the stochastic resonance effect. Then, it is shown, using standard optimization theory, that the normalized power norm of the bistable double-well system with aperiodic input signal can reach a larger maximal value by tuning the system parameter and adding noise simultaneously. Finally, for the purpose of practical implementation, searching for the optimal system parameter and noise intensity is realized by an on-line fast-converging optimization algorithm

    ABSTRACT: Nonlinear bistable double-well stochastic resonance systems have been successfully used for one-dimensional signal processing, based on the concept of parameter-tuning stochastic resonance. This paper investigates the applications of parameter-tuning stochastic resonance in image processing. First, a two-dimensional stochastic resonance system is introduced as a nonlinear filter for image processing. The equation satisfied by the dynamic probability density function of the images processed by this stochastic resonance filter and its solutions are then discussed. Finally, this nonlinear filter is used to process a black-white image corrupted by additive white Gaussian noise to reveal the possibility to extend the concept of parameter-tuning stochastic resonance to two-dimensional cases. This provides an innovative approach for image processing

    ABSTRACT: The traditional stochastic resonance is realized by adding an optimal amount of noise, while the parameter-tuning stochastic resonance is realized by optimally tuning the system parameters. This paper reveals the possibility to further enhance the stochastic resonance effect by tuning system parameters and adding noise at the same time using optimization theory. The further improvement of the maximal normalized power norm of the bistable double-well dynamic system with white Gaussian noise input can be converted to an optimization problem with constraints on system parameters and noise intensity, which is proven to have one and only one local maximum for the Gaussian-distributed weak input signal. This result is then extended to the arbitrary weak input signal case. For the purpose of practical implementation, a fast-converging optimization algorithm to search the optimal system parameters and noise intensity is also proposed. Finally, computer simulations are performed to verify its validity and demonstrate its potential applications in signal processing.

    ABSTRACT: Stochastic resonance (SR) is a phenomenon that performance of the nonlinear system can be improved with the addition of optimal amount of noise. Stochastic resonance has been increasingly used for signal processing. The output of the nonlinear bistable dynamic system with white Gaussian noise input can be used to restore the weak input signal, if the similarity between the input signal and the output can be maximized. This paper first use the optimization theory to show that the normalized power norm describing the similarity will reach a larger maximum when tuning both system parameters and noise intensity, compared with that of only adjusting noise intensity (classical stochastic resonance) or only adjusting system parameters. Then, computer simulations are performed to verify this proposal and demonstrate its application in signal processing
