— In this paper the state estimation problem for linear discrete-time systems with non-Gaussian state and output noises is treated. In order to obtain a state optimal quadratic estimate with a lower computational effort and without loosing the stability, only the observable part of the second-order power system will be considered. The novelty of the(More)
—In this paper, we develop solutions for the loading of digital subscriber loop (DSL) multicarrier (MC) systems that present constraints both on overall available energy and maximum energy per carrier. In the emerging G.DMT-based systems planned for high-throughput multimedia applications, the constraint on the peak-energy arises from spectral compatibility(More)
—In this short contribution, quickly computable upper and lower bounds are presented on the symmetric capacity of flat-faded Rice and Nakagami channels with side information (SI) for data-transmissions via finite-size quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) constellations. The proposed bounds exhibit the appealing feature to be tight and asymptotically exact(More)
—In this contribution, a novel version of the reduced state maximum a posteriori probability/decision-feedback (MAP/DF) equalizer for intersymbol interference channels with long impulse responses is presented. The main feature of the proposed equalizer is that the soft statistics generated by the MAP receiver are employed to recursively compute a suitable(More)
Very few studies examined trend over time of the revised Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Functional Rating Scale (ALSFRS-R) and factors influencing it; previous studies, then, included only patients attending tertiary ALS Centres. We studied ALSFRS-R decline, factors influencing this trend and survival in a population-based setting. From 2009 onwards, a(More)
