The application of a radial basis function network to digital communications channel equalization is examined. It is shown that the radial basis function network has an identical structure to the optimal Bayesian symbol-decision equalizer solution and, therefore, can be employed to implement the Bayesian equalizer. The training of a radial basis function(More)
A Bayesian solution is derived for digital communication channel equalization with decision feedback. This is an extension to the maximum a posteriori probability symbol-decision equalizer to include decision feedback. A novel scheme of utilizing decision feedback is proposed which not only improves equalization performance but also reduces computational(More)
The problem of constructing adaptive minimum bit error rate (MBER) linear multiuser detectors is considered for direct-sequence code division multiple access (DS-CDMA) signals transmitted through multipath channels. Based on the approach of kernel density estimation for approximating the bit error rate (BER) from training data, a least mean squares (LMS)(More)
A locally regularized orthogonal least squares (LROLS) algorithm is proposed for constructing parsimonious or sparse regression models that generalize well. By associating each orthogonal weight in the regression model with an individual regularization parameter, the ability for the orthogonal least squares model selection to produce a very sparse model(More)
To cope with explosive traffic demands on current cellular networks of limited capacity, Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN) is used to offload traffic from cellular networks to high capacity and free device-to-device networks. Current DTN-based mobile data offloading models are based on simple and unrealistic network assumptions which do not take into(More)
The paper introduces an efficient construction algorithm for obtaining sparse linear-in-the-weights regression models based on an approach of directly optimizing model generalization capability. This is achieved by utilizing the delete-1 cross validation concept and the associated leave-one-out test error also known as the predicted residual sums of squares(More)
An adaptive beamforming technique is proposed based on directly minimizing the bit-error rate (BER). It is demonstrated that this minimum BER (MBER) approach utilizes the antenna array elements more intelligently than the standard minimum mean square error (MMSE) approach. Consequently, MBER beamforming is capable of providing significant performance gains(More)
The paper presents a two-level learning method for radial basis function (RBF) networks. A regularized orthogonal least squares (ROLS) algorithm is employed at the lower level to construct RBF networks while the two key learning parameters, the regularization parameter and the RBF width, are optimized using a genetic algorithm (GA) at the upper level.(More)
Motivated by the recent concept of Spatial Modulation (SM), we propose a novel Space-Time Shift Keying (STSK) modulation scheme for Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) communication systems, where the concept of SM is extended to include both the space and time dimensions, in order to provide a general shift-keying framework. More specifically, in the(More)
The impact of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae of food animal origins on human health has caught considerable attention worldwide. Intestinal Escherichia coli obtained from healthy food animals (pigs, cattle and poultry) in China were tested for the presence of ESBL genes. CTX-M-producing isolates were further characterised(More)
