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)

BACKGROUND The skin is responsible for forming a variety of epidermal structures that differ amongst vertebrates. In each case the specific structure (for example scale, feather or hair) arises from an epidermal placode as a result of epithelial-mesenchymal interactions with the underlying dermal mesenchyme. Expression of members of the Wnt, Hedgehog and(More)
We examined geographically distinct isolates of Plasmodium vivax and categorized them according to developmental success in Anopheles albimanus. We found that parasites from Central America and Colombia form a group distinct from those of Asia. New World isolates have a distinct chromosomal translocation and an episomal variation in the open reading frame(More)
Solitons are nonlinear waves present in diverse physical systems including plasmas, water surfaces and optics. In silicon, the presence of two photon absorption and accompanying free carriers strongly perturb the canonical dynamics of optical solitons. Here we report the first experimental demonstration of soliton-effect pulse compression of picosecond(More)
This study aimed to investigate the sucrose-metabolizing enzymes, and their genes in fruits of two longan (Dimocarpus longan Lour) cultivars Cihezhong (CHZ) and Lidongben (LDB). The content of sucrose, glucose, and fructose were measured by high-performance liquid chromatography. The genes of sucrose-metabolizing enzymes were cloned by combining reverse(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)
