— We characterize the total degrees of freedom (DoF) of the full-rank MIMO X channel with arbitrary number of antennas at each node. We elucidate that the existing outer bound is tight for any antenna configuration and provide transmit and receive filter designs that attain this outer bound. The proposed achievable scheme exploits channel extensions in(More)
This paper deals with the design of nonregenerative relaying transceivers in cooperative systems where channel state information (CSI) is available at the relay station. The conventional nonregenerative approach is the amplify and forward (A&F) approach, where the signal received at the relay is simply amplified and retransmitted. In this paper, we(More)
This article is the result of an initiative between the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries Associations (EFPIA) and the European Centre for the Validation of Alternative Methods (ECVAM). Its objectives are to provide the researcher in the safety evaluation laboratory with an up-to-date, easy-to-use set of data sheets to aid in the study design(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify the rates and the predictors of long-term remission and the recurrence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP) or sleeve gastrectomy (SG). BACKGROUND The durability of the improvement of T2DM after bariatric surgery is not well characterized. METHODS One hundred fifty-three subjects with T2DM(More)

Obesity is associated with type 2 diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidaemia. Modest weight loss has been shown to have a beneficial effect on these cardiovascular risk factors and to improve risk factor clustering. Recent lifestyle intervention studies also suggest that modest weight loss can help to prevent two of the most common conditions associated(More)
This paper deals with the problem of estimating the position of a user equipment operating in a wireless communication network. In particular, we present a new positioning method based on the angles of arrival (AOA) measured in several radio links between that user equipment and different base stations. The proposed AOA-based method leads us to a(More)
In this paper, the achievable rate of a K-user interference channel with single antenna at individual node is studied. Interference alignment and zero forcing are applied at the transmitter and receiver, respectively. It is well known from the paper [1] of Cadambe and Jafar that a multiplexing gain (degrees of freedom) of K/2 is achievable. We propose two(More)
The main impairment for the location of terminals in a wireless communications system is the non-line-of-sight (NLOS) condition which is mainly due to blocking of the transmitted signal by obstacles. It is well known that NLOS biases time-of-arrival (TOA) and time-difference-of-arrival (TDOA) estimates, therefore providing a biased position. The paper(More)
Providing femto-access points (FAPs) with computational capabilities will allow (either total or partial) offloading of highly demanding applications from smart-phones to the so called femto-cloud. Such offloading promises to be beneficial in terms of battery saving at the mobile terminal (MT) and/or in latency reduction in the execution of applications.(More)
This work investigates the degrees of freedom (DoF) of the K-user multiple-input single-output (MISO) interference channel (IC) with imperfect delayed channel state information at the transmitters (dCSIT). For this setting, new DoF inner bounds are provided, and benchmarked with cooperation-based outer bounds. The achievability result is based on a(More)
