Modern wireless systems employ adaptive techniques to provide high throughput while observing desired coverage, QoS (quality of service) and capacity. An alternative to further enhance data rate is to apply cognitive radio concepts, where a system is able to exploit unused spectrum on existing licensed bands by " sensing " the spectrum and opportunistically(More)
—Since its advent, wavelet coding has been recognized as a promising technique for wireless transmission systems, especially due to its low decoding complexity and good performance over multipath fading. However, this technique requires unusual modulation schemes in order to be fully exploited. A BER analysis of wavelet-coded transmission systems over(More)
Automatic modulation classification (AMC) techniques have applications in a variety of wireless communication scenarios, such as adaptive systems, cognitive radio, and surveillance systems. However, a common requirement to most of the AMC techniques proposed in the literature is the use of signal preprocessing modules, which can increase the computational(More)
— This paper deals with automatic modulation classification (AMC) of communication signals. A new method for the automatic classification using a similarity measure derived from Information Theoretic Learning (ITL), called correntropy coefficient, is proposed. Unlike many of the conventional methods, the proposed method does not require any signal(More)
The System identification explores ways to obtain mathematical models of an unknown system. However, as a result from the intrinsic random nature of system or from the environment noise, it is very hard to find a perfect mathematical representation of a real system. This paper aims to evaluate the Maximum Correntropy Criterion (MCC) performance using the(More)
