—This paper investigates the properties of a method for obtaining Markov models of unspecified order to be applied to narrow-band fading channels with additive white Gaussian noise. The models are obtained by applying the context tree pruning algorithm to experimental or simulated sequences. Fading environments are identified in which the extension from(More)
The design of handoff algorithms for cellular communication systems based on mobile signal-strength measurements is considered. The design problem is posed as an optimization to obtain the best tradeoff between the expected number of service failures and expected number of handoffs, where a service failure is defined to be the event that the signal str(More)
Discharge patterns recorded from single auditory-nerve fibers have demonstrated long-range dependence, with the count variance-to-mean ratio growing as a power of the counting time for times greater than 0.1-1 s. The intent of this study is to provide a large dataset to enable a more detailed investigation of this phenomenon. Based on 108 recordings from a(More)
