We consider a communication system where two transmitters wish to exchange information through a central relay. The transmitter and relay nodes exchange data over synchronized, average power constrained additive white Gaussian noise channels with a real input with signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of snr. An upper bound on the capacity is 1/2 log(1 + snr) bits(More)
We study the joint source-channel coding problem of transmitting a Gaussian source over a Gaussian channel in two cases: (i) the presence of interference known only to the transmitter and (ii) in the presence of side information about the source known only to the receiver. We introduce hybrid digital analog forms of the Costa and Wyner-Ziv coding schemes.(More)
The effects of a single subcutaneous (s.c.) injection of the nitroaliphatic toxicants 3-nitropropanol (NPOH) and 3-nitropropionic acid (NPA) dissolved in physiological saline solution were studied in mice and rats, respectively. Clinical signs observed in both NPOH-treated mice and NPA-treated rats included depression, abnormal motor activity, and(More)
In this work we study encoding/decoding schemes for the transmission of a discrete time analog Gaussian source over a Gaussian wiretap channel. The intended receiver is assumed to have a certain minimum signal to noise ratio (SNR) and the eavesdropper is assumed to have a strictly lower SNR compared to the intended receiver. For a fixed information leakage(More)
1. Retention times of food in stomachs of breeding and non-breeding African pengiuns (Spheniscus demersus) were examined. 2. Rates of gastric emptying in non-breeding birds were linearly related to the mass of food in the stomach. 3. Breeding birds returned to the nest with more food in their stomachs when chicks were larger. The rate of regurgitation of(More)
The objectives of this study were to determine the variation of head areas of normal spermatozoa attributable to breed, individual bull and ejaculate and to verify separation of X and Y chromosome-bearing spermatozoa and separation effectiveness. Spermatozoa were evaluated using video enhanced contrast microscopy combined with video intensified fluorescent(More)
This study was to verify the usefulness of Nanovid microscopy techniques for evaluating induced modifications in bovine spermatozoal membranes. Frozen thawed bovine sperm were labeled with 20-nm colloidal gold particles bound to concanavalin A (ConA) or heparin ligands. Sperm membrane changes were induced in vitro by capacitating and acrosome-reacting(More)
