—The iterative channel estimation and tracking problem is considered for time-varying frequency-flat fading multi-input multi-output (MIMO) systems. In order to jointly estimate and track the time-varying multi-antenna channel, the pilot symbol assisted modulation (PSAM) technique is generalized to the multi-antenna systems. By distributing the pilot(More)
Huntington's disease (HD) is an autosomal neurodegenerative disorder affecting approximately 5-10 persons per 100,000 worldwide. The pathophysiology of HD is not fully understood but the age of onset is known to be highly dependent on the number of CAG triplet repeats in the huntingtin gene. Using (1)H NMR spectroscopy this study biochemically profiled 39(More)
Ant responses were tested under both the natural geomagnetic and artificially induced Earth-strength electromagnetic field. Foragers were trained for a month to visit a food source at the north arm accessed through an orientation platform assembly. Under the natural geomagnetic field, when all other orientational cues were eliminated, results indicated(More)
— Decoding delay is an important consideration for the use of turbo codes in practical applications. We propose a new structure for turbo codes which is very suitable for parallel decoding. It is shown by union bound analysis and simulation results that the proposed system performance is comparable to that of the classical turbo codes.
—Parallel decodable turbo codes (PDTCs) are suitable for concurrent decoding and hence have low latency. Memory collision issue is an important problem met during parallel processing. In this article, we propose a collision free interleaver for parallel processing operations. The performance of PDTCs is analyzed with the proposed random interleaver(More)
—A low-complexity iterative channel estimation (ICE) algorithm is proposed with the promise of improved error performance. The new algorithm operates the LMS filter both in the forward and the backward directions along a block. The feedback from the decoder to the estimator is in the form of soft decisions. The pilot symbol assisted modulation (PSAM) is(More)
— Cooperative diversity can enjoy the same benefits of MIMO systems when there is no possibility of carrying multiple antennas on a communication terminal. The main distinction between MIMO and cooperative diversity systems is the inherent asynchronism in the latter. We propose a model to study the effects of carrier frequency offset along with symbol(More)
It is known that rotated multidimensional constellations can be used effectively to achieve full-rate and full-diversity transmission in block fading channels. However, optimal decoding complexity is exponential with the number of fading blocks (or degrees of freedom). In this paper, we propose a reduced-complexity iterative receiver structure operating on(More)
We propose a low complexity graph-based linear minimum mean square error (LMMSE) equalizer which considers both the intersymbol interference (ISI) and the effect of non-white noise inherent in Faster-than-Nyquist (FTN) signaling. In order to incorporate the statistics of noise signal into the factor graph over which the LMMSE algorithm is implemented, we(More)
—The paper proposes a general framework for both time-domain (TD) and frequency-domain (FD) iterative block-wise equalization in single carrier (SC) wideband multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels. First, a novel turbo blockwise operating equalizer structure is proposed by jointly optimizing the feed-forward and feedback filters at each iteration(More)
