"New relations between similarity measures for vectors based on vector norms" "Leo EGGHE" "The well-known similarity measures Jaccard, Salton’s cosine, Dice and several related overlap measures for vectors are compared. While general relations are not possible to prove, we study these measures on the “trajectories” of the form , where is a constant and denotes the Euclidean norm of a vector. In this case, direct functional relations between these measures are proved. For Jaccard we prove that it is a convexly increasing function of Salton’s cosine measure, but always smaller than or equal to the latter, hereby explaining a curve, experimentally found by Leydesdorff. All the other measures have a linear relation with Salton’s cosine, reducing even to equality, in case . Hence for equally normed vectors (e.g. for normalized vectors) we, essentially, only have Jaccard’s measure and Salton’s cosine measure, since all the other measures are equal to the latter."
"On sets of vectors of a finite vector space in which every subset of basis size is a basis II" "Simeon Ball, Jan De Beule" "This article contains a proof of the MDS conjecture for k ? 2p ? 2. That is, that if S is a set of vectors of Fkq in which every subset of S of size k is a basis, where q = p h , p is prime and q is not and k ? 2p ? 2, then |S| ? q + 1. It also contains a short proof of the same fact for k ? p, for all q."

"Height estimation from speech signals using i-vectors and least-squares support vector regression" "Amir Hossein Poorjam, Mohamad Hasan Bahari, Vasileios Vasilakakis, Hugo Van hamme" "© 2015 IEEE. This paper proposes a novel approach for automatic speaker height estimation based on the i-vector framework. In this method, each utterance is modeled by its corresponding i-vector. Then artificial neural networks (ANNs) and least-squares support vector regression (LSSVR) are employed to estimate the height of a speaker from a given utterance. The proposed method is trained and tested on the telephone speech signals of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)2008 and 2010 Speaker Recognition Evaluation (SRE) corpora respectively. Evaluation results show the effectiveness of the proposed method in speaker height estimation."
