Absrmcr-Let {(q, r$)}#L* be a source of independealt identicauy distributed (i.i.d.) disc&e random variables with joint probability mass function p(u,o) and common part w-f(u)=g(u) in the sense of Witsenbawn, Gacs, and Kkner. It is shown that such a source can be sent with arbitrarily small probability of error over a multiple access ChaMel (MAC) {Xl(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)
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)
We formulate the interaction between the communicating nodes and an adversary within a game-theoretic context. We show that earlier information-theoretic capacity results for a jammed channel correspond to a pure Nash Equilibrium (NE). However, when both players are allowed to randomize their actions (i.e., coding rate and jamming power) new mixed Nash(More)
