Maximum Possibility Estimation Method with Application in GPS Ambiguity Resolution
Based on the fuzzy set and the possibility theory, this paper presents the Maximum Possibility Estimation method. The new estimation method is different from the other ones. The principle of the Maximum Possibility Estimation method, using triangular fuzzy number as a membership function, is given in this paper. Then, the hybrid algorithm is discussed for the resolution of the nonlinear programming model. Finally, an example of GPS ambiguity resolution using Maximum Possibility Estimation is presented. The results indicate that this new estimation method is feasible and useful.
