We derive a new upper bound on the wordand bit-error probabilities of turbo codes with maximum-likelihood decoding by using the Gallager bound. Since the derivation of the bound for a given interleaver is intractable, we assume uniform interleaving as in the derivation of the standard union bound for turbo codes [1], [2]. The result is a generalization of(More)
In this study, the diversity of Plasmodium vivax populations circulating in Pakistan and Iran has been investigated by using circumsporozoite protein (csp) and merozoite surface proteins 1 and 3alpha (msp-1 and msp-3alpha) genes as genetic markers. Infected P. vivax blood samples were collected from Pakistan (n=187) and Iran (n=150) during April to October(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Species identification and information on transmission pattern of malaria parasite in any malaria endemic area is key to success for a malaria control programme. In this investigation, malaria diagnosis using molecular method was used to assess the transmission pattern of malaria parasite in three malaria endemic regions:(More)
We investigate quasi-cyclic low-density parity-check (QC-LDPC) codes for nonergodic block-fading channels. A construction method for designing QC-LDPC codes is presented. With careful design, the proposed QC-LDPC codes exhibit the same good performance as their corresponding random root- LDPC codes introduced in [1] using iterative belief-propagation (BP)(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to determine the frequency of dhfr and dhps resistance-associated haplotypes in Plasmodium falciparum isolates, three years after the introduction of sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) as the first-line antimalarial treatment in Iran. METHODS Blood samples (N=182) were collected from patients presenting with(More)
