Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy has been genetically linked to reduced numbers (≤ 8) of D4Z4 repeats at 4q35 combined with 4A(159/161/168) DUX4 polyadenylation signal haplotype. However, we have recently reported that 1.3% of healthy individuals carry this molecular signature and 19% of subjects affected by facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy do(More)
—We deal with interference channels with (i) delayed channel state information at the transmitter (CSIT), and (ii) delayed output feedback at the receiver and no CSIT. We extend the algorithm by Maleki et al. [8] for M = 3 users to any M ≥ 3 under the constraint that all the transmitter/receiver pairs are active simultaneously. We propose a retrospective(More)
—Rarely do users watch online contents entirely. We study how to take this into account to improve the performance of cache systems for video-on-demand and video-sharing platforms in terms of traffic reduction on the core network. We exploit the notion of " Audience retention rate " , introduced by mainstream online content platforms and measuring the(More)
(listed in alphabetical order). Abstract We deal with multi-agent Markov Decision Processes (MDP's) in which cooperation among players is allowed. We find a cooperative payoff distribution procedure (MDP-CPDP) that distributes in the course of the game the payoff that players would earn in the long run game. We show under which conditions such a MDP-CPDP(More)
We deal with zero-sum two-player stochastic games with perfect information. We propose two algorithms to find the uniform optimal strategies and one method to compute the optimality range of discount factors. We prove the convergence in finite time for one algorithm. The uniform optimal strategies are also optimal for the long run average criterion and, in(More)
Mutations in dynamin 2 (DNM2) gene cause autosomal dominant centronuclear myopathy and occur in around 50% of patients with centronuclear myopathy. We report clinical, morphological, muscle imaging and genetic data of 10 unrelated Italian patients with centronuclear myopathy related to DNM2 mutations. Our results confirm the clinical heterogeneity of this(More)
—We deal with a multi-access wireless network in which transmitters dynamically select a frequency band to communicate on. The slow fading channel attenuations follow an autoregressive model. In the single user case, we formulate this selection problem as a restless multi-armed bandit problem and we propose two strategies to dynamically select a band at(More)
