—This paper presents an overview of recent progress in the area of multiple-input–multiple-output (MIMO) space–time coded wireless systems. After some background on the research leading to the discovery of the enormous potential of MIMO wireless links, we highlight the different classes of techniques and algorithms proposed which attempt to realize the(More)
—Cognitive radio (CR) design aims to increase spectrum utilization by allowing the secondary users (SUs) to coexist with the primary users (PUs), as long as the interference caused by the SUs to each PU is properly regulated. At the SU, channel-state information (CSI) between its transmitter and the PU receiver is used to calculate the maximum allowable SU(More)
We describe public key cryptosystems and analyse the RSA cryptosystem, pointing out a weakness (already known) of the RSA system. We define Lucas functions and derive some of their properties. Then we introduce a public key system based on Lucas functions instead of exponentiation. The computational requirements of the new system are only a little greater(More)
—The primary contribution of this work lies in the derivation of the exact characteristic function (and hence, the mean and variance) of the capacity of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems for semi-correlated flat-fading channels. A Gaussian approximation to the exact capacity results is suggested and evaluated for its accuracy. We show that over(More)
In this paper, we deal with the deployment of full-duplex relaying in amplify-and-forward (AF) cooperative networks with multiple-antenna terminals. In contrast to previous studies, which focus on the spatial mitigation of the loopback interference (LI) at the relay node, a joint precoding/decoding design that maximizes the end-to-end (e2e) performance is(More)
—Opportunistic spectrum access, popularly known as cognitive radio technology is an innovative radio design philosophy which aims to increase spectrum utilization by exploiting unused spectrum in dynamic environments. In this paper, we present an exact outage performance analysis for the rates of a decode-and-forward cooperative network where a source(More)
There has been a considerable growth in the use of flexible methods of delivery for workplace learning and development. However, in designing programmes of flexible learning there is often the assumption that learners will exhibit uniformity in the ways in which they process and organise information (cognitive style), in their predispositions towards(More)
