The Kaplan{Meier estimator of a survival function is used when cause of failure (censored or non-censored) is always observed. A method of survival function estimation is developed under the assumption that the failure indicators are missing completely at random (MCR). The resulting estimator is a smooth functional of the Nelson{Aalen estimators of certain(More)
Recent deployments of data-rich smart phones has provided a fresh impetus for designing, deploying and understanding the performance of wide area ad-hoc networks. The most popular medium access mechanism for such ad hoc networks is CSMA/CA with RTS/CTS. In this paper, using tools from stochastic geometry, we study and optimize the throughput performance of(More)
Geographic forwarding has been widely studied as a routing strategy for large wireless networks, mainly due to the low complexity of the routing algorithm, scalability of the routing information with network size and fast convergence times of routes. On a planar network with no holes, Gupta and Kumar (2000) have shown that a uniform traffic demand of(More)
Geographic routing with greedy relaying strategies have been widely studied as a routing scheme in sensor networks. These schemes assume that the nodes have perfect information about the location of the destination. When the distance between the source and destination is normalized to unity, the asymptotic routing delays in these schemes are(More)
We consider the problem of throughput-optimal routing over large-scale wireless ad-hoc networks. Gupta and Kumar (2000) showed that a throughput capacity (a uniform rate over all source-destination pairs) of thetas( 1/radicn log n ) is achievable in random planar networks, and the capacity is achieved by straight-line routes. In reality, both the network(More)
The IEEE 802.11p standard specifies the PHY and MAC layer operations for transmitting and receiving periodic broadcast messages for vehicular safety. Many studies have identified issues with the CSMA based IEEE 802.11p MAC at high densities of devices, mainly reflected by low packet reception rate. In this paper, we make an interesting observation that with(More)
Equilibrium formally can be represented as an ensemble of uncoupled systems undergoing unbiased dynamics in which detailed balance is maintained. Many nonequilibrium processes can be described by suitable subsets of the equilibrium ensemble. Here, we employ the "weighted ensemble" (WE) simulation protocol [Huber and Kim, Biophys. J.1996, 70, 97-110] to(More)
The focus of this paper is on beamforming in a millimeter-wave (mmW) multi-input multi-output (MIMO) setup that has gained increasing traction in meeting the high data-rate requirements of next-generation wireless systems. For a given MIMO channel matrix, the optimality of beamforming with the dominant right-singular vector (RSV) at the transmit end and(More)
