This paper presents a novel unequal erasure protection (UEP) strategy for the transmission of scalable data, formed by interleaving independently decodable and scalable streams, over packet erasure networks. The technique, termed multistream UEP (M-UEP), differs from the traditional UEP strategy by: 1) placing separate streams in separate packets to(More)
Thermal instability of metallic nanoparticles is typically attributed to chemical attack by contaminants. However, thermodynamic stability is independent of other affecting parameters. The importance of this will be clarified when the structural change toward a more stable thermodynamic condition may be followed by a chemical reaction with the surroundings,(More)
This paper presents a novel uneven erasure-protection (UEP) strategy for scalable data formed by interleaving independently decodable and scalable sub-streams. The main differences between UEP and the proposed novel strategy are: 1) the placement of separate sub-streams in separate packets to establish independence and 2) the use of permuted systematic(More)
