Cognitive radios have been proposed as a means to implement efficient reuse of the licensed spectrum. The key feature of a cognitive radio is its ability to recognize the primary (licensed) user and adapt its communication strategy to minimize the interference that it generates. We consider a communication scenario in which the primary and the cognitive(More)
—We derive upper bounds on the transport capacity of wireless networks. The bounds obtained are solely dependent on the geographic locations and power constraints of the nodes. As a result of this derivation, we are able to conclude the optimality, in the sense of scaling of transport capacity with the number of nodes, of a multihop communication strategy(More)
In order to determine the baseline state of oxidative stress indices in drug-free patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), we analyzed cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and peripheral blood samples of 34 subjects in disease stages I-III, according to the Hoehn & Yahr scale, compared with controls. The results showed a highly significant increase in malondialdehyde(More)
This paper proposes FlashLinQ--a synchronous peer-to-peer wireless PHY/MAC network architecture. FlashLinQ leverages the fine-grained parallel channel access offered by OFDM and incorporates an analog energy-level-based signaling scheme that enables signal-to-interference ratio (SIR)-based distributed scheduling. This new signaling mechanism, and the(More)
In this correspondence, we study the capacity region of a general wireless network by deriving fundamental upper bounds on a class of linear functionals of the rate tuples at which joint reliable communication can take place. The widely studied transport capacity is a specific linear functional: the coefficient of the rate between a pair of nodes is equal(More)
The etiology of neuronal death in neurodegenerative diseases, including Huntington's disease (HD), is still unknown. There could be a complex interplay between altered energy metabolism, excitotoxicity and oxidative stress. Unilateral administration of quinilonic acid (QA), NMDA agonist, in rat striatum in a single dose of 150 nM was used as a model of HD.(More)
We study two building-block models of interference-limited wireless networks, motivated by the problem of joint Peer-to-Peer and Wide Area Network design. In the first case, a single " long-range " transmitter interferes with multiple parallel " short-range " transmissions, and, in the second case, multiple short-range transmitters interfere with a single(More)
We present a probabilistic graphical framework for mobile device positioning. We study the performance of a positioning algorithm, which implements the message-passing paradigm, in an indoor environment where a mobile device measures fingerprints of received signals. The key innovation in our approach is a stochastic parametric model for the fingerprint map(More)
