— We propose to apply a technique called time-reversal to UWB communications. In time-reversal a signal is precoded such that it focuses both in time and in space at a particular receiver. Spatial focusing reduces interference to other co-existing systems. Due to temporal focusing, the received power is concentrated within a few taps and the task of… (More)
— We study the possibility to transmit data over channels with large delay spreads under the constraint of a very simple receiver which has only one tap. Such a scheme is of interest when a cost-efficient way to transmit potentially high data rates are sought after. We investigate the performance of the optimal pre-filter for this scheme, and compare it to… (More)
This document presents WINNER channel models. The channel models cover WINNER propagation scenarios for indoor, urban macro-cell and micro-cell, stationary feeder, suburban macro-cell, and rural macro-cell. Both geometric-based stochastic channel model and reduced-variability (clustered delay-line) models are presented. The channel models are mainly based… (More)
Political stock markets (PSM) are sometimes seen as substitutes for opinion polls. On the bases of a behavioural model, specific preconditions were drawn out under which manipulation in PSM can weaken this argument. Evidence for manipulation is reported from the data of two separate PSM during the Berlin 1999 state elections.
We investigate the high-SNR probability density function of the mutual information of the Ricean MIMO channel for Gaussian code books and the case where the channel's fixed component has rank 1. The purpose of this paper is threefold: 1) We propose an illustrative geometrical technique characterizing the mutual information as the log of the random volume of… (More)
The focus of this dissertation is on the design of two-dimensional lters for feature extraction, segmentation, and classiication of digital images with textural content. The features are extracted by ltering with a linear lter and estimating the local energy of the lter response. The dissertation gives a review covering broadly most previous approaches to… (More)
