This paper presents the outcomes of experiments performed to acquire data and to evaluate various parameters to: (1) assess the feasibility of harvesting the energy from the ambient RF power to energize wireless sensor nodes, and, (2) characterize commercially available PowerCastTM energy harvester. The parameters of interest are: (1) Ambient RF power along(More)
In an attempt to analyse long-term response in finite dioecious populations, selection processes are simulated on a computer with situations of parental population size, linkages between loci, selection intensity, and heritability, specified in a 3(4) factorial design. A diploid polygenic system of 40 loci on 4 chromosomes is considered for additive genes.(More)

In a direct Monte Carlo study, the effects and interactions of parental population size, close linkages between loci, degree of truncation selection and environmental variance are explored in the cases of complete dominance and overdominance with equilibrium gene frequency of .5. The base population simulated has a gene frequency of .5 at all 40 loci and is(More)
The proportion of fixed loci for desirable genes and the time required for fixation is studied in simulated diploid populations, which have initially aHARDY-WEINBERG structure. A symmetric ten-locus system of additive or dominant genes is simulated with linkages between adjacent loci varying as .005, .05, or .5. A constant degree of upper truncation(More)
