A new quality-scalable high-fidelity multichannel audio compression algorithm based on MPEG-2 Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) is presented in this research. The Karhunen-Loève Transform (KLT) is applied to multichannel audio signals in the pre-processing stage to remove inter-channel redundancy. Then, signals in de-correlated channels are compressed by a(More)
Potassium sorbate has been utilized as a novel, efficient and green catalyst for the Knoevenagel condensation of aromatic aldehydes with active methylene compounds to afford substituted ole-fins through the conventional stirring or under ultrasound irradiation. Improvements were observed by carrying out the reactions under ultrasound irradiation. The(More)
Being able to transmit the audio bitstream progressively is a highly desirable property for network transmission.MPEG-4 version 2 audio supports fine grain bit rate scalability in the generic audio coder (GAC). It has a bit-sliced arithmetic coding (BSAC) tool, which provides scalability in the step of 1 Kbps per audio channel. There are also several other(More)
MPEG Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) is one of the most distinguished multichannel digital audio compression systems. Based on AAC, we develop a progressive syntax-rich multichannel audio codec in this work. It not only supports fine grain bit rate scalability for multichannel audio bitstreams but also provides several desirable functionalities. MPEG-4(More)
A modified MPEG Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) scheme based on the Karhunen-Loeve transform (KLT) to remove inter-channel redundancy, which is called the MAACKL method, has been proposed in our previous work. However, a straightforward coding of elements of the KLT matrix generates about 240 bits per matrix for typical 5 channel audio contents. Such an(More)
Imatinib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) has significantly improved clinical outcome for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients. However, patients develop resistance when the disease progresses to the blast phase (BP) and the mechanisms are not well understood. Here we show that BCR-ABL activates BLT2 in hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells to promote(More)
