The rapid expansion of global urban development is increasing opportunities for wildlife to forage and become dependent on anthropogenic resources. Wildlife using urban areas are often perceived dichotomously as urban or not, with some individuals removed in the belief that dependency on anthropogenic resources is irreversible and can lead to increased(More)
An efficient method for the design of low-delay two-channel, perfect reconstruction IIR filter banks is proposed. The design problem is formulated in terms of minimax designs of a general stable IIR filter that can be obtained using semidefinite programming and an FIR filter that can be obtained using the Remez exchange algorithm. A multiplierless(More)
This paper proposes a novel method for designing two-channel and M-channel causal stable IIR PR filter banks using cosine modulation. In particular, we show that the PR condition of the two-channel IIR filter banks is very similar to the two-channel FIR case. Using this formulation, it is relatively simple to satisfy the PR condition and to ensure that the(More)
A new method for designing two-channel causal stable IIR PR filter banks and wavelet bases is proposed. It is based on the structure previously proposed by Phoong et al. (1995). Such a filter bank is parameterized by two functions ␣(z) and ␤(z), which can be chosen as an all-pass function to obtain IIR filterbanks with very high stopband attenuation. One of(More)
Changing epidemiology of Hepatitis A virus (HAV) has led to an increased susceptibility of adolescents and adults to the infection. Vaccination can remarkably reduce the incidence and associated morbidity of HAV infection. This review is focused on the safety and efficacy of H2 strain derived live attenuated Hepatitis A vaccine. We found the vaccine to be(More)
