We consider zero error function computation in a three node wireless network. Nodes A and B observe X and Y respectively, and want to compute a function f(X, Y ) with zero error. To achieve this, nodes A and B send messages to a relay node C at rates R<sub>A</sub> and R<sub>B</sub> respectively. The relay C then broadcasts a message to A and B at rate(More)
Substitution of thiocyanate ions (SCN-) for chloride ions (Cl-) in the extracellular medium of aortic rings and strips causes a biphasic contractile response; initial relaxation followed by sustained contraction. Alterations in these responses are sex-specific, and may elucidate fundamental differences in vascular function between males and females. In(More)
We propose an active tomography technique for inferring directed acyclic graph (DAG) logical topologies where intermediate nodes need to perform network coding. Unlike traditional traceroute-based techniques, our technique requires only unidirectional communication on each link, and does not require the nodes to reveal their unique identities. Also, unlike(More)
In vivo studies suggest that 17 beta-estradiol (beta E) may regulate vascular tone. Results of recent studies suggest that beta E exerts rapid effects on intracellular calcium, possibly via cell surface receptors, distinct from conventional nuclear receptors for steroids. The present study was designed to determine whether beta E acutely modifies vascular(More)
The existence of an opioid central pathway that may regulate bile secretion was explored by studying the effect of the intracisternal (i.c.) administration of the opiate D-Ala2-Met-enkephalinamide (DAME) on bile secretion in anesthetized male rats. The i.c. administration of DAME was associated with a dose-related decrease in bile flow that ranged from 12%(More)
—We consider the problem of oblivious transfer (OT) over OFDM and MIMO wireless communication systems where only the receiver knows the channel state information. The sender and receiver also have unlimited access to a noise-free real channel. Using a physical layer approach, based on the properties of the noisy fading channel, we propose a scheme that(More)
—We consider the function computation problem in a three node network with one encoder and two decoders. The encoder has access to two correlated sources X and Y. The encoder encodes X n and Y n into a message which is given to two decoders. Decoder 1 and decoder 2 have access to X and Y respectively, and they want to compute two functions f (X, Y) and g(X,(More)
