In this paper, we present a simple, but effective method of enhancing and exploiting diversity from multiple packet transmissions in systems that employ nonbinary linear modulations such as phase-shift keying (PSK) and quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM). This diversity improvement results from redesigning the symbol mapping for each packet transmission.(More)
We apply the level-3 Reformulation Linearization Technique (RLT3) to the Quadratic Assignment Problem (QAP). We then present our experience in calculating lower bounds using an essentially new algorithm, based on this RLT3 formulation. This algorithm is not guaranteed to calculate the RLT3 lower bound exactly, but approximates it very closely and reaches it(More)
This paper reports heuristic and exact solution advances for the Quadratic Assignment Problem (QAP). QAP instances most often discussed in the literature are relatively well solved by heuristic approaches. Indeed, solutions at a fraction of one percent from the best known solution values are rapidly found by most heuristic methods. Exact methods are not(More)
We have established a simple method of measuring joint motion under physiological conditions. For this purpose we use an ultrasound measuring system employing marker points consisting of miniaturized ultrasound transmitters. This device was tested on a simple biomechanical model, the linkage of the proximal and distal interphalangeal joints. The angles of(More)
In this paper we present a simple, but effective method of creating and exploiting diversity from packet retransmissions in systems that employ nonbinary modulations such as PSK and QAM. This diversity results from differing the symbol mapping for each packet retransmission. By developing a general framework for evaluating the bit error rate (BER) upper(More)
INTRODUCTION Sulcus ulnaris syndrome is the second most common neurocompression syndrome in the upper limb after carpal tunnel syndrome. Its severity can be appreciated by the Dellon Classification. We present our experience and results after endoscopic decompression. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective chart review of 55 patients operated over a 3-year(More)
This paper reports on a new algorithm for the Generalized Quadratic Assignment problem (GQAP). The GQAP describes a broad class of quadratic integer programming problems, wherein M pairwise related entities are assigned to N destinations constrained by the destinations’ ability to accommodate them. This new algorithm is based on a Reformulation(More)
