Hint. You can assume the measurements are numbered so that yi are sorted in nondecreasing order,
i.e., y1 ≤ y2 ≤ · · · ≤ ym . (The data given in the problem instance for part (b) is given in this
6.6 Maximum likelihood estimation of an increasing nonnegative signal. We wish to estimate a scalar
signal x(t), for t = 1, 2, . . . , N , which is known to be nonnegative and monotonically nondecreasing:
0 ≤ x(1) ≤ x(2) ≤ · · · ≤ x(N ).
This occurs in many practical problems. For example, x(t) might be a measure of wear or deterioration, that can only get worse, or stay the same, as time t increases. We are also given that
x(t) = 0 for t ≤ 0.
We are given a noise-corrupted moving average of x, given by
k y ( t) =
τ =1 h(τ )x(t − τ ) + v (t), t = 2, . . . , N + 1, where v (t) are independent N (0, 1) random variables.
(a) Show how to formulate the problem of ﬁnding the maximum likelihood estimate of...
