—This paper deals with joint source and relay beam-forming (BF) design for an amplify-and-forward (AF) multi-antenna multirelay network. Considering that the channel state information (CSI) from relays to destination is imperfect, we aim to maximize the worst case received signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The associated optimization problem is then solved in(More)
Diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) such as meningitis or encephalitis may represent events of public health interest due to emerging infections and/or NIH/CDC Category B priority pathogens. Apart from influencing treatment and management of the index case, some diagnoses such as meningococcal meningitis warrant an immediate public health response.(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of and risk factors for dementia in residents aged 65 years and older in a Chinese nursing home. METHODS A cross-sectional study was carried out in a nursing home located in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China. Cognitive status, including the presence of dementia and mild(More)
This study aimed to address two queries: firstly, the relationship between two cataract surgical feedback tools for training, one human and one software based, and, secondly, evaluating microscope control during phacoemulsification using the software. Videos of surgeons with varying experience were enrolled and independently scored with the validated(More)
Plaque rupture is the critical cause of cardiovascular thrombosis, but the detailed mechanisms are not fully understood. Recent studies have found abundant cholesterol crystals in ruptured plaques, and it has been proposed that the rapid expansion of cholesterol crystals in a limited space during crystallization may contribute to plaque rupture. To evaluate(More)
—This paper deals with joint source-relay-destination beamforming (BF) design for an amplify-and-forward (AF) relay network. Considering the channel state information (CSI) from the relay to the destination is imperfect, we first aim to maximize the worst case received SNR under per-antenna power constraints. The associated optimization problem is then(More)
