In this paper, we present a novel approach based on compressive sensing theory to estimate and mitigate asynchronous narrow-band interference (NBI) in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing systems with multiple transmit and/or multiple receive antennas. We consider the practical scenarios where one or multiple asynchronous NBI signals experience fast(More)
In this paper, we design MMSE-optimal training sequences for multi-user MIMO-OFDM systems with an arbitrary number of transmit antennas and an arbitrary number of training symbols. It addresses spectrally-efficient uplink transmission scenarios where the users overlap in time and frequency and are separated using spatial processing at the base station. The(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a major burden on health-care systems worldwide. Although radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is currently considered the best technique for coagulative necrosis, the superiority of concomitant use of RFA and percutaneous ethanol injection (PEI) needs to be determined. The study was designed to compare(More)
We analyze the outage performance of half-duplex amplify-and-forward relaying in an OFDM system with MRC detection in the presence of I/Q imbalance and compare it with that of the direct transmission mode. Both analytical and numerical results demonstrate that the direct mode can outperform the amplify-and-forward mode even under moderate levels of(More)
In this paper, we propose a new framework for the design of sparse finite impulse response (FIR) equalizers. We start by formulating greedy and convex-optimization-based solutions for sparse FIR linear equalizer tap vectors given a maximum allowable loss in the decision-point signal-to-noise ratio. Then, we extend our formulation to decision feedback(More)
We propose two novel algorithms based on compressed-sensing theory to estimate and cancel narrow band interference (NBI) in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposed algorithms in estimating the NBI frequency support and approaching the performance with no NBI.
