In the area of performance analysis of wireless networks, one critical issue is the hidden terminal problem, which is considered as one of the severest reasons for the degradation of network performance. In this paper, we incorporate reactive jamming scheme with distributed coordination function (DCF) in IEEE 802.11 based wireless local area networks(More)
In the field of tissue engineering, polymeric materials with high biocompatibility like polylactic acid and polyglycolic acid have been widely used for fabricating living constructs. For hypopharynx tissue engineering, skeletal muscle is one important functional part of the whole organ, which assembles the unidirectionally aligned myotubes. In this study, a(More)
In this paper, we develop a performance modeling technique for analyzing the time varying network layer queueing behavior of multihop wireless networks with constant bit rate traffic. Our approach is a hybrid of fluid flow queueing modeling and a time varying connectivity matrix. Network queues are modeled using fluid-flow based differential equation models(More)
Due to the wide deployment of wireless local area networks (WLAN), received signal strength (RSS)-based indoor WLAN localization has attracted considerable attention in both academia and industry. In this paper, we propose a novel page rank-based indoor mapping and localization (PRIMAL) by using the gene-sequenced unlabeled WLAN RSS for simultaneous(More)
Multihop wireless networks can be subjected to nonstationary phenomena due to a dynamic network topology and time varying traffic. However, the simulation techniques used to study multihop wireless networks focus on the steady-state performance even though transient or nonstationary periods will often occur. Moreover, the majority of the simulators suffer(More)
IEEE 802.15.4 Low Rate Wireless Personal Area Network (LR-WPAN) intends to provide low-power ubiquitous communications between devices. However, energy utilization by devices (or nodes) in the network often impacts the application functionality and lifetime due to limited battery capacity. For instance, in the typical multihop LR-WPAN used for data(More)
P2P live streaming systems have been widely adopted nowadays. In such systems, flash crowds still remains a big challenge, which often occur when an enormous number of users suddenly arrive to view a newly released program. In a flash crowd scenario, users often suffer from a long startup delay and a high failure rate. In this paper, we propose a(More)
