—The popularization of cloud computing has raised concerns over the energy consumption that takes place in data centers. In addition to the energy consumed by servers, the energy consumed by large numbers of network devices emerges as a significant problem. Existing work on energy-efficient data center networking primarily focuses on traffic engineering,(More)
MOTIVATION Expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) studies investigate how gene expression levels are affected by DNA variants. A major challenge in inferring eQTL is that a number of factors, such as unobserved covariates, experimental artifacts and unknown environmental perturbations, may confound the observed expression levels. This may both mask real(More)
In this study, the performance of the frequency-modulated differential chaos shift keying (FM-DCSK) ultra-wideband (UWB) system is evaluated through two important system parameters, the guard interval and the integration interval of the integrator, over indoor communication channels. It is found that the existing FM-DCSK UWB system suffers severe(More)
A critical factor in the adoption of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is the level of read-accuracy that is achieved. With passive tags, the read-accuracy depends on the volume of the region that receives sufficient power from the reader. Most current research considers the powering region of a reader to be determined only by its read range(More)
