Marks, Wise, Haldeman and Whited have derived exact expressions for
the test statistic distribution functions, and thus were able to analyze
the performance of the optimal detector for given values of signal
strength and sample size.
The Zhao–Atlas–Marks distribution produces a good resolution in time
and frequency domains. The ZAMD method reduces the interference
resulting from the cross-terms present in multi-component signals. It is
useful in resolving close spectral peaks and capturing non-stationary
and multi-component signals.
[T]he Zhao-Atlas-Marks time-frequency distribution ... significantly
enhances the time and frequency resolution and eliminates all
undesirable cross terms. // The ZAM distribution has been applied to
speech with remarkable results.
[Their diagnostic test performs] detection and localization of shorted
turns in the DC field winding of turbine-generator rotors using novelty
detection and fuzzified neural networks. Use of neural networks with
fuzzy logic outputs and traveling wave techniques ... is an accurate
locator of shorted turns in turbo-generator rotors.
Their "very interesting multidimensional construction ... exploit[s]
the [required] spectral gaps that occur when sampling multidimensional
signals. Their approach is to slice the spectrum into narrow bands, and
handle separately those bands which contain signal energy and those
which do not."
Techniques have been developed by Walkup, Marks, and their co-workers
whereby a shift-variant transformation can be separated into a number of
discrete operations. // Marks et al. have derived a generalized
sampling theorem that gives the ... rates necessary for dealing with
shift-variant operations. // Marks has [also] proposed a number of
processors based on temporally multiplexing the impulse response.
While many problems in optics can be solved by projections, it is
difficult to solve such problems using all-optical methods. A notable
exception is Marks' all-optical implementations of the convex projection
algorithm for implementing super-resolution.

Marks has made science-oriented Genesis is the creator of the
universe, and indicates that, from an observers perspective on the
surface of the earth (granting an opaque to translucent to transparent
atmosphere), the "sequence of events in Genesis is consistent with the
sequence of events in science."
Marks refers to himself as "A servant of Jesus Christ."
