In orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing, the total spectral resource is partitioned into multiple orthogonal subcarriers. These subcarriers are assigned to different users for simultaneous transmission in orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA). In an unsynchronized OFDMA uplink, each user has a different carrier frequency offset (CFO)(More)
In orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) communications, carrier frequency offset must be estimated and compensated at the receiver to maintain orthogonality. In this paper, we examine the performance of a blind carrier frequency offset estimation algorithm for OFDM communications. Experiments were conducted on a system operating at close to 2(More)
In this paper, we propose a fair pricing strategy to improve the performance of a slotted Aloha system in which users act selfishly to improve their own utility. Based on a game theoretic framework, we show that both throughput and revenue can be optimized by appropriately selecting a pricing strategy for the selfish users. Our proposed solution considers(More)
Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) transforms frequency-selective channels into multiple low-rate flat-fading subchannels. Carrier frequency offset between transmitter and receiver local oscillators must be estimated and compensated at the receiver to maintain orthogonality of these subchannels. In this paper, we derive the nonlinear least(More)
In this paper, recent localization algorithms are analyzed under a common one hop network scenario. The performance of localization is affected by physical parameters in a real wireless environment such as anchor node location and quantity, and error in the measured distance. The numerical analysis presented in this paper can be used to choose among(More)
Wireless access based on slotted Aloha with selfish users may result in very inefficient use of the system resources. To impose cooperation and fairness in such systems, we propose an optimal pricing strategy, based on which the service provider can regulate the overall network behavior. As the users’ utility incorporates the price paid for using the(More)
