—In this paper, we present LEASE, a new system and framework for Location Estimation Assisted by Stationary Emitters for indoor RF wireless networks. Unlike previous studies, we emphasize the deployment aspect of location estimation engines. Motivated thus, we present an adaptable infrastructure-based system that uses a small number of stationary emitters(More)
Recently, a class of experimental designs has been devised that guarantee input domain coverage up to all combinations of k test factors taken t at a time. With such designs, all pairwise combinations (or triplets or quadruplets, etc.) are selected at least once. To evaluate their applicability to software testing, we analyzed the extent to which software(More)
Ahtract-The class of nonnegative definite Toeplitz matrices that can be embedded in nonnegative definite circulant matrices of larger sue is characterized. An equivalent characterization in terms of the spectrum of the underlying process is also presented, together with the corresponding extrema1 processes. It is shown that a given finite duration sequence(More)
The Descartes circle theorem states that if four circles are mutually tangent in the plane, with disjoint interiors, then their curvatures (or " bends ") b i = 1 r i satisfy the relation (b 1 + b 2 + b 3 + b 4) 2 = 2(b 2 1 + b 2 2 + b 2 3 + b 2 4). We show that similar relations hold involving the centers of the four circles in such a configuration,(More)
A Descartes configuration is a set of four mutually tangent circles in the Riemann sphere, having disjoint interiors. Apollonian circle packings arise by repeatedly filling the interstices between four mutually tangent circles with further tangent circles. Such packings can be described in terms of the Descartes configurations they contain. Part I shoewed(More)
This paper gives n-dimensional analogues of the Apollonian circle packings in Parts I and II. Those papers considered circle packings described in terms of their Descartes configurations, which are sets of four mutually touching circles. They studied packings that had integrality properties in terms of the curvatures and centers of the circles. Here we(More)
