—Both the inherently wideband differential-chaos-shift-keying (DCSK) modulation and the space-time block code (STBC) are techniques that can mitigate the effect of multipath fading. By applying STBC at the chaotic segment level, a novel analog STBC-DCSK scheme is proposed in this paper. The proposed scheme is a simple configuration that combines the(More)
—To overcome the performance loss of noncoherent detectors of differential chaos-shift keying (DCSK), some improved versions of DCSK have been proposed. However, little has been done to improve the multiuser DCSK system based on Walsh codes (WCs), i.e., referred to as DCSK-WC, although it is considered more feasible in practice among the existing multiuser(More)

The dysregulation of glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK3) has been implicated in Alzheimer disease (AD) pathogenesis and in Abeta-induced neurotoxicity, leading us to investigate it as a therapeutic target in an intracerebroventricular Abeta infusion model. Infusion of a specific GSK3 inhibitor SB216763 (SB) reduced a downstream target, phospho-glycogen(More)
—We investigate the performance of the protograph low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes, which have been shown to possess simple structures and outstanding error performance over additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channels, over partial response (PR) channels using the finite-length extrinsic information transfer (EXIT) algorithm. Due to the intersymbol(More)
A cooperative frequency-modulated differential chaos shift keying (FM-DCSK) ultra-wideband (UWB) systems, named cooperative FM-DCSK UWB system, is investigated under indoor environments of IEEE 802.15.4a in this article. The performance of the cooperative FM-DCSK UWB system is evaluated in such channel models (CMs), that is, CM1 – CM4, by means of the(More)
In wireless communications, spatial diversity techniques, such as space-time block code (STBC) and single-input multiple-output (SIMO), are employed to strengthen the robustness of the transmitted signal against channel fading. This paper studies the performance of protograph-based low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes with receive antenna diversity. We(More)
—This letter develops a log-likelihood-ratio-based decoder for a generalized joint channel-coding-and-physical-network coding used in a two-way relay system. Assuming that the same low-density parity-check codes are used at the source nodes, the proposed decoder shows identical error performance as the probability-domain-based decoder but with a much lower(More)
BACKGROUND Five-year survival for lung cancer has remained at 16% over last several decades largely due to the fact that over 50% of patients are diagnosed with locally-advanced or metastatic disease. Diagnosis at an earlier and potentially curable stage is crucial. Solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs) are common, but the difficulty lies in the determination(More)
