Recently, cognitive radio and smart grid are two areas which have received considerable research impetus. Cognitive radios are intelligent software defined radios (SDRs) that efficiently utilize the unused regions of the spectrum, to achieve higher data rates. The smart grid is an automated electric power system that monitors and controls grid activities.(More)
Recently, Cognitive radio and Smart Grid are two areas which have received considerable research impetus. Cognitive radios are fully programmable wireless devices that can sense their environment, and dynamically adapt their transmission waveform, channel access method, spectrum use, and networking protocols. It is widely anticipated that cognitive radio(More)
This is the second paper in a series of using cognitive radio network as wireless sensor network. The motivation of the paper is to push the convergence of radar and communication systems into a unified cognitive network. This paper studies this vision from a secure point of view. We propose two methods for robust spectrum sensing in the same framework of(More)
Spectrum sensing is a cornerstone in cognitive radio. Covariance matrix based method has been widely used in spectrum sensing. As is well-known that the covariance matrix of white noise is proportional to the identity matrix which is sparse. On the other hand, the covariance matrix of signal is usually low-rank. Robust principal component analysis (PCA) has(More)
Natural saponin icogenin, namely 25(S)-22-O-methyl-furost-5-en-3beta,26-dio-3-O-alpha-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1-->2)-[beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1-->3)]-beta-D-glucopyranoside, and one of its analogues, 25(S)-22-O-methyl-furost-5-en-3beta,26-dio-3-O-alpha-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1-->2)-[beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1-->3)]-alpha-D-glucopyranoside, were first synthesized via(More)
Spectrum sensing is a fundamental problem in cognitive radio. We propose a function of covariance matrix based detection algorithm for spectrum sensing in cognitive radio network. Monotonically increasing property of function of matrix involving trace operation is utilized as the cornerstone for this algorithm. The advantage of proposed algorithm is it(More)
The aberrant activation of STAT3 occurs in many human cancers and promotes tumor progression. Phosphorylation of a tyrosine at amino acid Y705 is essential for the function of STAT3. Synthesized carbazole derived with fluorophore compound 12 was discovered to target STAT3 phosphorylation. Compound 12 was found to inhibit STAT3-mediated transcription as well(More)
Feature template matching (FTM) was proposed by Zhang and Qiu in 2011 for spectrum sensing in cognitive radio. Theoretical analysis for FTM is, however, missing in the literature. This paper will address this issue. Another new direction suggested by this paper is a nonlinear version of FTM, which is called kernel FTM (KFTM). The proposed nonlinear(More)
