– Multiuser MIMO (MU-MIMO) is a new technology adopted in IEEE 802.11ac for enhancing downlink throughput. 802.11ac has an explicit feedback mechanism that enables very high quality channel feedback to be provided to the transmitter, but the overhead can be quite substantial. We propose a differential feedback method that significantly reduces this overhead(More)
Leaf senescence is a programmed developmental process governed by various endogenous and exogenous factors, such as the plant developmental stage, leaf age, phytohormone levels, darkness, and exposure to stresses. It was found that, in addition to its well-documented role in the enhancement of plant frost tolerance, overexpression of the(More)
A combination of hot water (a rinse at 62 degrees C for 20 s) and conditioning (pre-storage at 16 degrees C for 7 d) treatments synergistically reduced chilling injury development in grapefruit (Citrus paradisi, cv. "Star Ruby") during cold storage at 2 degrees C, suggesting that the treatments may activate different chilling tolerance responses. To study(More)
—We consider the problem of obtaining channel state information (CSI) via a fast feedback link for transmission on the downlink of a multiuser MIMO system. We examine the relative merits of channel feedback schemes based on Shannon's source-channel separation principle (digital schemes) and non-separation based schemes and show that the latter are(More)
