—The performance of the noncoherent differential chaos-shift-keying (DCSK) communication system over a mul-tipath fading channel with delay spread is evaluated. Analytical expressions of the bit error rates are derived under the assumption of an independent Rayleigh fading two-ray channel model. Analytical and simulated results are presented and compared.(More)
—In this paper, exact analytical expressions for the bit error rates (BERs) in a multiple-access chaos-based digital communication system are derived. Comparisons are made with those obtained using traditional approximation methods which assume a Gaussian distribution for the conditional decision parameter. The obtained results are compared to the results(More)
With the use of belief propagation (BP) decoding algorithm, low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes can achieve near-Shannon limit performance. In order to evaluate the error performance of LDPC codes, simulators running on CPUs are commonly used. However, the time taken to evaluate LDPC codes with very good error performance is excessive. In this paper,(More)
—Both the peak power and the average power of emission are limited in UWB systems in order to keep the interference caused in an already existing narrowband radio system low enough. It is frequently overlooked that these power limits have to be checked not over the transmitted UWB signal but at the output of a bandpass filter specified in the FCC(More)
The use of low-density-parity-check (LDPC) codes in coding digital messages has aroused much research interest because of their excellent bit-error performance. The behavior of the iterative LDPC decoders of finite length, however, has not been fully evaluated under different signal-to-noise conditions. By considering the finite-length LDPC decoders as(More)
We have shown previously that dietary blueberry (BB) extract supplementation (S) reversed several parameters of neuronal and behavioral (e.g., cognition) aging in rodents. Additionally, findings indicate that COS-7 cells transfected with muscarinic receptor subtypes (e.g., M1) showed decrements in Ca;{2+} clearance following depolarization (Ca;{2+} Recovery(More)
—In this paper, we study a decode-and-forward two-way relaying network. We propose an opportunistic two-way relaying (O-TR) scheme based on joint network coding and opportunistic relaying. In the proposed scheme, one single " best relay " is selected by MaxMin criterion to perform network coding on two decoded symbols sent from two sources, and then to(More)
