The problem of placement of mesh router nodes in Wireless Mesh Networks is known to be a NP hard problem. In this paper, the problem is addressed under a constraint of network model tied to rural regions where we usually observe low density and sparse population. We consider the area to cover as decomposed into a set of elementary areas which can be… (More)

Wireless mesh networks appear as an appealing solution to reduce the digital divide between rural and urban regions. However the placement of router nodes is still a critical issue when planning this type of network, especially in rural regions where we usually observe low density and sparse population. In this paper, we firstly provide a network model tied… (More)

—We reduce the problem of optimal beamforming for two-way relay (TWR) systems with perfect channel state infomation (CSI) that use analog network coding (ANC) to a pair of algebraic equations in two variables that can be solved inexpensively using numerical methods. The solution has greatly reduced complexity compared to previous exact solutions via… (More)

We propose, develop, and analyze a mathematical model of intergroup attitudes in a community that is divided between two distinct social groups (which may be distinguished by religion, ethnicity, or some other socially distinguishing factor). The model is based on very simple premises that are both intuitive and justified by sociological research. We… (More)

This paper analyzes common confusions involving basic concepts in statistical hypothesis testing. One-third of the social science statistics textbooks examined in the study contained false statements about significance level and/or p-value. We infer that a large proportion of social scientists are being miseducated about these concepts. We analyze the… (More)
