—The recent witnessed evolution of cellular networks from a carefully planned deployment to more irregular, heterogeneous deployments of Macro, Pico and Femto-BSs motivates new analysis and design approaches. In this paper, we analyze the coverage probability in cellular networks assuming repulsive point processes for the base station deployment. In(More)
Energy harvesting (EH) is a promising technology for realizing energy efficient wireless networks. In this paper, we utilize the ambient RF energy, particularly interference from neighboring transmissions, to replenish the batteries of the EH enabled nodes. However, RF energy harvesting imposes new challenges into the analysis of wireless networks. Our(More)
—We consider a distributed storage system where data storage nodes are equipped with energy harvesting transmitters. In particular, F files are stored over n storage nodes using regenerating codes. The main operations of the distributed storage system are serving the file requests of data collectors and repairing the content of storage nodes that fail or(More)
Coded caching can improve fundamental limits of communication, utilizing storage memory at individual users. This paper considers a centralized coded caching system, introducing heterogeneous cache sizes at the users, i.e., the users' cache memories are of different size. The goal is to design cache placement and delivery policies that minimize the(More)
—We model a distributed storage system consisting of energy harvesting nodes which store multiple files. To investigate the performance of file retrieval and node repair, we formulate two optimization problems: maximizing the number of retrieved (repaired) files given a deadline, and minimizing the retrieval (repair) time of a number of stored files. We(More)
BACKGROUND Breast lesions including breast cancer represent a major public health issue in Sudan. Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is an established, simple, highly accurate, minimally invasive, and cost-effective method of diagnosing most breast lesions. The aim of this study is to document the most common breast conditions diagnosed by means of FNAC(More)
