A source coding problem over a noiseless broadcast channel where the source is preinformed about the contents of the cache of all receivers, is an index coding problem. Furthermore, if each message is requested by one receiver, then we call this an index coding problem with a unicast message setting. This problem can be represented by a directed graph. In(More)
We consider a graphical approach to index coding. As cycles have been shown to provide coding gain, cycles and cliques (a specific type of overlapping cycles) have been exploited in an existing literature. In this paper, we define a more general form of overlapping cycles, called the interlinked-cycle (<inline-formula> <tex-math notation="LaTeX">$ \mathsf(More)
Consider a communication scenario over a noiseless channel where a sender is required to broadcast messages to multiple receivers, each having side information about some messages. In this scenario, the sender can leverage the receivers’ side information during the encoding of messages in order to reduce the required transmissions. This type of encoding is(More)
We study the index coding problem in the unicast message setting, i.e., where each message is requested by one unique receiver. This problem can be modeled by a directed graph. We propose a new scheme called interlinked cycle cover, which exploits interlinked cycles in the directed graph, for designing index codes. This new scheme generalizes the existing(More)
Do country-specific equity market characteristics explain variations in foreign equity portfolio allocation? We study this question using comprehensive foreign equity portfolio holdings data and different measures of country-specific equity market factors for 36 host countries. Employing panel and cross-sectional econometric estimations, our investigation(More)
3 Generation Partnership Project Long Term Evolution (3GPP-LTE) is focusing towards aggressive frequency reuse i.e. reuse of 1 so that we can get maximum number (all available spectrum) within a cell. Now, the major hindrance is co-channel interference which increases dramatically due to nearby adjacent co-channel cell and most especially for cell edge(More)
