Strong rate-compatible codes is important to achieve high throughput in hybrid automatic repeat request with forward error correction (ARQ/FEC) systems in packet data transmission. This paper focuses on the construction of efficient rate-compatible low density parity check (RC-LDPC) codes over a wide rate range. The conventional approach of puncturing is(More)
For an arbitrary degree Bézier curve B, we first establish sufficient conditions for its control polygon to become homeomorphic to B via subdivision. This is extended to show a subdivided control polygon that is ambient isotopic to B. We provide closed-form formulas to compute the corresponding number of iterations for equivalence under homeomorphism and(More)
—Effectively coding multiview visual content is an indispensable research topic because multiview image and video that provide greatly enhanced viewing experiences often contain huge amounts of data. Generally, conventional hybrid predic-tive-coding methodologies are adopted to address the compression by exploiting the temporal and interviewpoint redundancy(More)
Oxidative stress is a condition of imbalance between reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation and antioxidant capacity as a result of dysfunction of the antioxidant system. ROS can be served as a second messenger at low or moderate concentration, while excessive amount of ROS under oxidative stress condition would destroy macromolecules like proteins, DNA,(More)
The delta opioid receptor (DOR) agonist [D-Ala2, D-Leu5] enkephalin (DADLE) has been implicated as a novel neuroprotective agent in the CNS. The current study was designed to evaluate the effects of intracerebroventricular (ICV) application of DADLE on neurological outcomes following asphyxial cardiac arrest (CA) in rats. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were(More)
