The IEEE 802.16e standard is a rapidly developing technology for broadband wireless access system. Its PHY OFDMA mode defines two subchannel building methods: diversity permutation and contiguous permutation (AMC subchannel). In this paper we propose a joint packet scheduling and subchannel allocation scheme applicable for the IEEE 802.16e OFDMA AMC(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent progenitors that can undergo osteogenic differentiation under proper stimuli. We demonstrated that BMP9 is one of the most osteogenic BMPs. However, the molecular mechanism underlying BMP9-initiated osteogenic signaling in MSCs remains unclear. Through gene expression profiling analysis we identified several(More)
A class of wireless multicast utility optimization problems are considered. Assume network utility is only a function of link throughput and nodes' transmission power. Under a set of physical layer assumptions, the impact of physical and data-link layer configurations to the upper layers in a wireless network can be characterized using a configuration(More)
This paper shows that, under certain conditions, a wireless network can be modeled by a directed configuration graph with possible hyperarc links if the transmission schedule is given. Assume single multicast session. The maximum achievable multicast throughput equals the max-flow min-cut bound of the configuration graph. An optimization framework is(More)
The Earth's rotation undergoes changes with the influence of geophysical factors, such as Earth's surface fluid mass redistribution of the atmosphere, ocean and hydrology. However, variations of Earth Rotation Parameters (ERP) are still not well understood, particularly the short-period variations (e.g., diurnal and semi-diurnal variations) and their(More)
—This letter considers a class of utility optimization problems in wireless networks. Under a set of physical layer assumptions, we show that the impact of physical and data-link layer configurations to the upper layers in a wireless network can be characterized using a configuration graph, which is similar to a wireline network topology graph. Network(More)
