A main distinguishing feature of a wireless network compared with a wired network is its broadcast nature, in which the signal transmitted by a node may reach several other nodes, and a node may receive signals from several other nodes simultaneously. Rather than a blessing, this feature is treated more as an interference-inducing nuisance in most wireless(More)
This paper investigates link-by-link channel-coded PNC (Physical layer Network Coding), in which a critical process at the relay is to transform the superimposed channel-coded packets received from the two end nodes (plus noise), Y3 = X1 + X2+W3, to the network-coded combination of the source packets, S1 ⊕ S2. This is in contrast to the traditional(More)
The concept of physical-layer network coding (PNC) was proposed in 2006 for application in wireless networks. Since then it has developed into a subfield of network coding with wide followings. The basic idea of PNC is to exploit the network coding operation that occurs naturally when electromagnetic (EM) waves are superimposed on one another. This simple(More)
This paper presents the first implementation of a two-way relay network based on the principle of physicallayer network coding. To date, only a simplified version of physical-layer network coding (PNC), called analog network coding (ANC), has been successfully implemented. The advantage of ANC is that it is simple to implement; the disadvantage, on the(More)
Direct application of network coding at the physical layer physical layer network coding (PNC) is a promising technique for two-way relay wireless networks. In a two-way relay network, relay nodes are used to relay two-way information flows between pairs of end nodes. This paper proposes a precise definition for PNC. Specifically, in PNC, a relay node does(More)
When data are transmitted in a wireless network, they reach the target receiver as well as other receivers in the neighborhood. Rather than a blessing, this attribute is treated as an interference-inducing nuisance in most wireless networks today (e.g., IEEE 802.11). Physical-layer network coding (PNC), however, has been proposed to take advantage of this(More)
Network coding has been receiving much attention recently for its ability to improve network throughput and enhance network robustness. In this paper, we investigate the design of network coding in wireless networks and propose a combined low complexity network coding and channel decoding scheme. We analyze the capacity of the proposed scheme for both the(More)
The two-phase MIMO NC (network coding) scheme can be used to boost the throughput in a two-way relay channel in which nodes are equipped with multiple antennas. The obvious strategy is for the relay node to extract the individual packets from the two end nodes and mix the two packets to form a network-coded packet. In this paper, we propose a new(More)
Recently, RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) has rapidly emerged as a major transcriptome profiling system. Elucidation of the bovine mammary gland transcriptome by RNA-seq is essential for identifying candidate genes that contribute to milk composition traits in dairy cattle. We used massive, parallel, high-throughput, RNA-seq to generate the bovine transcriptome(More)
