—We investigate bandwidth allocation in next generation cellular systems employing relays similar to LTE advanced systems with type-I relays. We jointly optimize the bandwidth and power usage under constraints on required rate, bandwidth and transmit power. We study scenarios wherein, the relay acts as a forwarder for multiple User Equipments (UEs/users) in(More)
—Base stations with a large number of transmit antennas have the potential to serve a large number of users simultaneously at higher rates. They also promise a lower power consumption due to coherent combining at the receiver. However, the receiver processing in the uplink relies on the channel estimates which are known to suffer from pilot interference. In(More)
—Base stations with a large number of transmit antennas have the potential to serve a large number of users at high rates. However, the receiver processing in the uplink relies on channel estimates which are known to suffer from pilot interference. In this work, making use of the similarity of the uplink received signal in CDMA with that of a multi-cell(More)
Individuals spend a majority of their time in their home or workplace and for many, these places are our sanctuaries. As society and technology advance there is a growing interest in improving the intelligence of the environments in which we live and work. By filling home environments with sensors and collecting data during daily routines, researchers can(More)
Visualization of molecular structures aids in the understanding of structural and functional roles of biological macromolecules. Macromolecular transport between the cell nucleus and cytoplasm is facilitated by the nuclear pore complex (NPC). The ring structure of the NPC is large and contains several distinct proteins (nucleoporins) which function as a(More)
Recently, user-cooperative MIMO (multi-input multi-output) systems have been generating significant interest due to their capacity/performance gains over SISO (single-input single-output) systems. In cooperative MIMO architectures, individual nodes with single antennas collaborate with each other to act as a MIMO unit. As a result, the individual node(More)
