—Spectrum sensing for cognitive radio is challenging. In this letter, a spectrum sensing method based on quintiles of Order-Statistics is proposed. We derive the test statistic and evaluate the performance of the proposed method by Monte Carlo simulations. Simulation results show that order statistics based sensing considerably outperforms both energy(More)
Cognitive radio has been introduced as a promising solution to the apparent problem of spectrum scarcity by exploiting unused portions of spectrum. The available spectrum bands or whitespaces are usually fragmented and discontinuous. In order to fulfil ever increasing demand for higher bandwidth, cognitive radio can exploit multiple whitespaces together to(More)
Quartic B-spline time integration method has been recently proposed for solving linear problems in structural dynamics. This paper developed this method to nonlinear dynamic analysis of single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) systems under exploding loads. Using quartic B-spline basis function, this method gained second order of acceleration at each time-step. Thus(More)
Carrier Aggregation (CA) is a key functionality for next generation wireless communication systems that enables operators to create larger virtual carrier bandwidths for data hungry applications by aggregating available Component Carriers (CCs). In this paper, the Resource Allocation (RA) optimisation problem in Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing(More)
