Wireless amplify-and-forward relay networks in which the source communicates with the relays and destination in the first phase and the relays forward signals to the destination in the second phase over orthogonal and uncorrelated Rayleigh fading channels are considered. Convex programming is used to obtain optimal and approximately optimal power allocation(More)
We tackle the problem of large-scale object detection in images, where the number of objects can be arbitrarily large, and can exhibit significant overlap/occlusion. A successful approach to modelling the large-scale nature of this problem has been via point process density functions which jointly encode object qualities and spatial interactions. But the(More)
This paper proposes an approach to integrate redundant, complementary, and/or conflicting information sources, assuming that information space is a lattice, and metadata about data quality is available. The approach is then applied on land cover assessments, where land cover classes are in a hierarchical structure, and quality information is defined, based(More)
This paper considers optimal distributed beamforming designs in a multi-relay network with multiple sources and multiple destinations. It is assumed that all source-destination pairs operate in orthogonal channels to avoid inter-user interference at the destinations. The distributed beamforming designs are carried out to minimize the sum relay power with(More)
This paper addresses the optimal cooperative beamforming design for multi-user multi-relay wireless networks in which the single-carrier frequency division multiple access (SC-FDMA) technique is employed at the terminals. The problem of interest is to find the beamforming weights across relays to maximize the minimum signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio(More)
Despite tremendous progress in chemotherapy, drug resistance remains a major challenge for anticancer treatment. The combinations of chemo-photothermal and chemo-chemo treatments have been reported to be potential solutions to overcome drug resistance. In this study, we developed a dual-in-dual synergistic therapy based on the use of dual anticancer(More)
Photodynamic (PDT) and photothermal (PTT) therapy are proven effective strategies for the treatment of cancer. PDT, a photochemistry-based therapy, utilises light energy based photosensitiser for the production of cytotoxic species via electron transfer to biological substrates and potential excitation or energy transfer to molecular oxygen. On the other(More)
OBJECTIVES In this study, we combined chemo- and hyperthermia therapy in a low temperature-sensitive liposome (LTSL) for potential cancer treatment. METHODS Docetaxel (DOC) and indocyanine green (ICG) as a therapeutic agent and photosensitizer, respectively, were incorporated in a low temperature-sensitive liposome (LTSL/DI). Nanoparticles were evaluated(More)
