Globalization is accelerating and it is still not clear whether trends like outsourcing will erode U.S. competitiveness or provide long-term benefits. The focus of the immigration debate is on the plight of millions of(More)
Vast world reserves of methane gas are underutilized as a feedstock for the production of liquid fuels and chemicals owing to the lack of economical and sustainable strategies for the selective oxidation of methane to methanol. Current processes to activate the strong C-H bond (104 kcal mol(-1)) in methane require high temperatures, are costly and(More)
Introduction The founders of the United States considered intellectual property worthy of a special place in the Constitution— " To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries. " 1 In today's knowledge‐based economy, capturing value(More)
Symbol-by-symbol detection algorithms are useful in systems in which soft-decision metrics are important, e.g., systems with interleaved coded modulation. A soft-output algorithm for the detection of continuous phase modulated (CPM) signals transmitted over frequency flat, Rayleigh fading channels is developed. Since the optimum detector is computationally(More)
Vast world reserves of methane gas are underutilized as a feedstock for production of liquid fuels and chemicals due to the lack of economical and sustainable strategies for selective oxidation to methanol1. Current processes to activate the strong C–H bond (104 kcal/mol) in methane require high temperatures, are costly and inefficient, and produce waste2.(More)
