Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disease linked to the misfolding of Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD1). ALS-related defects in SOD1 result in a gain of toxic function that coincides with aberrant oligomerization. The structural events triggering oligomerization have remained enigmatic, however, as is the case in other(More)
Information theory predicts huge performance gains in terms of spectrum efficiency by using cooperative transmission from multiple base stations. Cooperation eliminates inter-cell interference and it enables a higher channel rank. The isolated cell capacity is an upper bound for unlimited backbone capacity, infinite signal processing power and infinite(More)
Workload generation is essential to systematically evaluate performance properties of application systems under controlled conditions, e.g., in load tests or benchmarks. The definition of workload specifications that represent the real workload as accurately as possible is one of the biggest challenges in this area. This paper presents our approach for the(More)
In this paper we report on the system design and a realtime implementation of a MIMO-OFDM radio transmission system close to physical layer parameters as discussed in standardization for 3GPP-Long-Term-Evolution. We describe the implementation concept and first results on over-the-air transmission with a single user set-up occupying 20 MHz bandwidth and(More)
In this paper we present rst real-time outdoor multi-user multiantenna measurements based on system parameters close to 3GPP-Long Term Evolution. We demonstrate switching between various transmission modes in the downlink steered by a quantized feedback channel. Real time results show that an OFDMA proportional fair scheduler based on the quantized feedback(More)
The specification of workloads is required in order to evaluate performance characteristics of application systems using load testing and model-based performance prediction. Defining workload specifications that represent the real workload as accurately as possible is one of the biggest challenges in both areas. To overcome this challenge, this paper(More)
Defining representative workloads, involving workload intensity and service calls within user sessions, is a core requirement for meaningful performance testing. This paper presents the approach for obtaining representative workload models from production systems that has been developed in the DynaMod project for model-driven software modernization.
