This paper examines a novel digital modulation/multiple access technique called Multi-Carrier Code Division Multiple Access (MC-CDMA) where each data symbol is transmitted at multiple narrowband subcarriers. Each subcarrier is encoded with a phase offset of 0 or π based on a spreading code. Analytical results are presented on the performance of this(More)
1 Abstract If C is a q-ary code of length n and a and b are two codewords, then c is called a descendant of a and b if c i 2 fa i ; b i g for i = 1; : : : ; n. We are interested in codes C with the property that, given any descendant c, one can always identify at least one of thèparent' codewords in C. We study bounds on F (n; q), the maximal cardinality of(More)
In biometrics, a human being needs to be identified based on some characteristic physiological parameters. Often this recognition is part of some security system. Secure storage of reference data (i.e., user templates) of individuals is a key concern. It is undesirable that a dishonest verifier can misuse parameters that he obtains before or during a(More)
—IEEE 802.15.4 was developed to meet the needs for low-rate wireless communication. However, due to its low power, IEEE 802.15.4 is potentially vulnerable to interference by other wireless technologies having much higher power and working in the same Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) band such as IEEE 802.11b/g. The paper therefore focuses on the(More)
Watermarks allow embedded signals to be extracted from audio and video content for a variety of purposes. One application is for copyright control, where it is envisaged that digital video recorders will not permit the recording of content that is watermarked as " never copy ". In such a scenario, it is important that the watermark survive both normal(More)
—In orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing, time variations of a multipath channel lead to a loss of orthogo-nality between the subcarriers, and thereby limit the achievable throughput. This paper proposes a general framework for a controlled removal of intercarrier interference (ICI) and channel acquisition. The core idea behind our method is to use a(More)
—Rapid time variations of the mobile communication channel have a dramatic effect on the performance of multicarrier modulation. This paper models the Doppler spread and computes its effect on the bit error rate (BER) for multicarrier code division multiple access (MC-CDMA) transmission and compares it to orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM).(More)
