Prospect. for Petroleum, Ministry of Geology and Minerals, c/o China Int Book Trading Corp., P.O. Box 2820, Beijing, PRC), 28: 73–80 (in Chinese with English abstract).

An approach to determine the amplitude using MEM (maximum-entropy method) is presented in this paper. It is based on the interrelation between MEM and MLM (maximum-likelihood method). Simulation test results show it is easily operated and works well. The paper presents formulas for MEM and MLM spectra and the relation between them.
