A primary challenge in multi casting video in a wireless LAN to multiple clients is to deal with the client diversity -- clients may have different channel characteristics and hence receive different numbers of transmissions from the AP. A promising approach to overcome this problem is to combine multi-resolution (layered) video coding with interlayer(More)
In this paper, we study and analyze fundamental throughput-delay tradeoffs in cooperative multiple access for cognitive radio systems. We focus on the class of randomized cooperative policies, whereby the secondary user (SU) serves either the queue of its own data or the queue of the primary user (PU) relayed data with certain service probabilities. The(More)
In this paper, we propose a distributed reinforcement learning (RL) technique called distributed power control using Q-learning (DPC-Q) to manage the interference caused by the femtocells on macro-users in the downlink. The DPC-Q leverages Q-Learning to identify the sub-optimal pattern of power allocation, which strives to maximize femtocell capacity, while(More)

This paper studies the joint design of routing and resource allocation algorithms in cognitive radio based wireless mesh networks. The mesh nodes utilize cognitive overlay mode to share the spectrum with primary users. Prior to each transmission, mesh nodes sense the wireless medium to identify available spectrum resources. Depending on the primary user(More)
Lysozymes are bacteriolytic peptides that are implicated in the insect nonspecific innate immune responses. In this study, a full-length cDNA encoding a c-type lysozyme from Schistocerca gregaria (SgLys) has been cloned and characterized from the fat body of immune-challenged 5(th) instar. The deduced mature lysozyme is 119 amino acid residues in length,(More)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) technologies are considered as one of the key of the research areas in computer science and healthcare application industries. The wireless body area sensor networks (WBASNs) is a wireless network used for communication among sensor nodes operating on or inside the human body in order to monitor vital body parameters and(More)
Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) estimation is an important parameter that is required in any receiver or communication systems. It can be computed either by a pilot signal data-aided approach in which the transmitted signal would be known to the receiver, or without any knowledge of the transmitted signal, which is a non-data-aided (NDA) estimation approach. In(More)
In this paper, we consider a cognitive setting under the context of cooperative communications, where the cognitive radio (CR) user is assumed to be a self-organized relay for the network. The CR user and the primary user (PU) are assumed to be energy harvesters. The CR user cooperatively relays some of the undelivered packets of the PU. Specifically, the(More)
