Collaborative Product Development (CPD) is an engineering process that involves decision-making through iterative communication and coordination among product designers throughout the lifecycle of the product. The high level of collaboration and communication of a CPD environment requires a robust Distributed Information System. In this paper, we review(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel blind equalization approach based on radial basis function (RBF) neural networks. By exploiting the short-term predictability of the system input, a RBF neural net is used to predict the inverse filter output. It is shown here that when the prediction error of the RBF neural net is minimized, the coefficients of the inverse(More)
Cellular senescence-inhibited gene (CSIG), also named as ribosomal_L1 domain-containing 1 (RSL1D1), is implicated in various processes including cell cycle regulation, cellular senescence, apoptosis, and tumor metastasis. However, little is known about the regulatory mechanism underlying its functions. To screen important targets and signaling pathways(More)
—A well-known inner bound on the stability region of the finite-user slotted Aloha protocol is the set of all arrival rates for which there exists some choice of the contention probabilities such that the associated worst-case service rate for each user exceeds the user's arrival rate, denoted Λ. Although testing membership in Λ of a given arrival rate can(More)
