In this paper, the design and analysis of a new bandwidth-efficient signaling method over the bandlimited intensity-modulated direct-detection (IM/DD) channel is presented. The channel can be modeled as a bandlimited channel with nonnegative input and additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN). Due to the nonnegativity constraint, standard methods for coherent(More)

—There has been a considerable interest in quantifying the influence that one node exerts on another in a social network. Using directed information, we study the problem for a simple, two-node network that models two users in a Twitter network in which one user (Alice) influences the other user (Bob) through her tweets. Under this setup, we relate the(More)
This paper investigates the capacity of a discrete­ time channel in which information is conveyed by the timing of consecutive packets passing through a queue with independent and identically distributed service times. Such tim ing chan­ nels are commonly studied under the assumption of a work­ conserving queue. In contrast, this paper studies the case of a(More)
—We investigate the effect of polarization-dependent loss (PDL) on the constant modulus algorithm (CMA) in 4-QAM and 16-QAM polarization multiplexed (PolMux) systems with varying number of fiber spans and different PDL values. To quantify this effect, outage probability is introduced as the probability of having a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) degradation(More)
