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.
