The optimal widely linear (WL) minimum variance distortionless response (MVDR) beamformer, which has a powerful performance for the reception of a noncircular signal, was proposed by Chevalier et al. in 2009. Nevertheless, in spectrum monitoring or passive listening, the optimal WL MVDR beamformer is hard to implement due to an unknown second-order (SO)(More)
This paper presents a new direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation method using the concept of sparse representation of an array cross-correlation vector (ACCV), in which DOA estimation is achieved by finding the sparse parameter vector according to an optimization criterion. Compared with other sparse recovery algorithms the proposed method achieves a higher(More)
Phenotypic and genotypic tolerance in 71 Listeria monocytogenes isolates from different varieties of foods to benzalkonium chloride (BC) and cadmium were investigated by susceptibility test and molecular methods. To investigate the role of efflux pumps in BC tolerance, reserpine, an efflux pump inhibitor, was added to the BC tolerant strains. Tolerance to(More)
Hierarchical cryptographic key management of access control can be modeled as a partially ordered set in which a high security class can derive its descendant encryption keys, but not vice versa. In this paper, we propose a practical key management scheme for our segment-based document which is a novel XML-based document format for web publishing, called(More)
Late embryogenesis abundant (LEA) proteins are a diverse and large group of polypeptides that play important roles in desiccation and freezing tolerance in plants. The LEA family has been systematically characterized in some plants but not Brassica napus. In this study, 108 BnLEA genes were identified in the B. napus genome and classified into eight(More)
