Recent progress in establishing the capability of radios to operate in full duplex mode on a single channel has been attracting growing attention from many researchers. We extend this work by considering the application to small cells, in particular resource-managed cellular systems similar to the TDD variant of LTE. We derive conditions where full duplex(More)
The evolutionary fate of an allele ordinarily depends on its contribution to host fitness. Occasionally, however, genetic elements arise that are able to gain a transmission advantage while simultaneously imposing a fitness cost on their hosts. We previously discovered one such element in C. elegans that gains a transmission advantage through a combination(More)
Spectrum sharing is a commonparadigm in future communication systems and a spectrally agile baseband waveform with minimal out-of-band emissions is a critical component. In this paper, we propose a new multicarrier modulation technique, called resource block Filtered-OFDM (RB-F-OFDM) and present the transceiver design. This waveform can be used over(More)
The kinetics of Se(IV) removal by zero valent iron (ZVI) open to the air as a function of pH and the involved mechanisms were investigated in this study. The specific rate constants of Se(IV) removal by ZVI decreased from 92.87 to 6.87 L h(-1) m(-2) as pH increased from 4.0 to 7.0. The positive correlation between the removal rate of Se(IV) and the(More)
Network MIMO (multiple-input multiple output), also known as Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP), is a key enabling technology of future cellular systems. A unified framework and a novel generalized iterative approach (GIA) is proposed for the minimum mean square error (MMSE) transceiver design of general MTMR (multiple-transmitter multiple-receiver) MIMO systems(More)
BACKGROUND Healthcare satisfaction is an important indicator in quality of healthcare evaluations. Instruments with psychometric evaluation for pediatric healthcare satisfaction in China have been rarely studied. The PedsQL™ 3.0 Healthcare Satisfaction Generic Module was a widely used instrument designed to measure parents' satisfaction of the healthcare(More)
Localization is one of the fundamental problems in mobile robot navigation. In this paper, we present a vision-based localization method called Monte Carlo-Kalman localization (MCL-EKF). This method is a combination of Monte Carlo localization (MCL) and extended Kalman filter (EKF) enhancement. We firstly give a detailed implementation of MCL with the(More)
Neuroblastoma (NB) is the most common extra-cranial solid pediatric tumor. The prognosis of patients with NB has been improved during the last decades. However, treatment results for patients with advanced tumor stages are still unsatisfying. NB cells are characterized by a high tendency for spontaneous or induced differentiation. During differentiation,(More)
