This article's goal is to provide an in-depth understanding of the principles of FSMC modeling of fading channels with its applications in wireless communication systems. While the emphasis is on frequency nonselective or flat-fading channels, this understanding will be useful for future generalizations of FSMC models for frequency-selective fading(More)
We study the dimensions or degrees of freedom of farfield multipath that is observed in a limited, source-free region of space. The multipath fields are studied as solutions to the wave equation in an infinite-dimensional vector space. We prove two universal upper bounds on the truncation error of fixed and random multipath fields. A direct consequence of(More)
We consider the problem of data exchange by a group of closely-located wireless nodes. In this problem each node holds a set of packets and needs to obtain all the packets held by other nodes. Each of the nodes can broadcast the packets in its possession (or a combination thereof) via a noiseless broadcast channel of capacity one packet per channel use. The(More)
We consider the throughput-delay tradeoff in network coded transmission over erasure broadcast channels. Interested in minimizing decoding delay, we formulate the problem of instantly decodable network coding as an integer linear program and propose algorithms to solve it heuristically. In particular, we investigate channels with memory and propose(More)
We consider scenarios where wireless clients are missing some packets, but they collectively know every packet. The clients collaborate to exchange missing packets over an error-free broadcast channel with capacity of one packet per channel use. First, we present an algorithm that allows each client to obtain missing packets, with minimum number of(More)
In this article, we look at early, recent, and state-of-the-art methods for registration of medical images using a range of high-performance computing (HPC) architectures including symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), massively multiprocessing (MMP), and architectures with distributed memory (DM), and nonuniform memory access (NUMA). The article is designed to(More)
License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. We are concerned with designing feedback-based adaptive network coding schemes with the aim of minimizing decoding delay in each transmission in packet-based erasure networks. We study systems where each packet brings new(More)
Due to processing constraints, automatic image-based registration of medical images has been largely used as a pre-operative tool. We propose a novel method named sort and count for efficient parallelization of mutual information (MI) computation designed for massively multi-processing architectures. Combined with a parallel transformation implementation(More)
We consider the issues of cost and fairness in the problem of cooperative data exchange among a group of wireless clients. In this problem, each client initially holds a subset of packets and needs to obtain the full set of packets through cooperation with other clients via a shared broadcast channel. To find minimum cost transmission schemes, we propose a(More)
— We consider a wireless multi-hop network and design an algorithm for jointly optimal scheduling of packet transmissions and network coding. We consider network coding across different users, however with the restriction that packets have to be decoded after one hop. We compute the stability region of this scheme and propose an online algorithm that(More)
