We consider the problem of routing and centralized scheduling for IEEE 802.16 mesh networks. We first fix the routing, which reduces the network to a tree. We then present scheduling algorithms which provide per flow QoS (Quality of Service) guarantees to real and interactive data applications while utilizing the network resources efficiently. Our(More)
We study a sensor node with an energy harvesting source. The generated energy can be stored in a buffer. The sensor node periodically senses a random field and generates a packet. These packets are stored in a queue and transmitted using the energy available at that time. We obtain energy management policies that are throughput optimal, i.e., the data queue(More)
I. ABSTRACT We consider an optimal power and rate scheduling problem for a single user transmitting to a base station on a fading wireless link with the objective of minimizing the mean delay subject to an average power constraint. The base station acts as a controller which, depending upon the transmitter buffer lengths and the signal power to interference(More)
IEEE 802.16 standards for wireless metropolitan area networks (WMANs) include a mesh mode of operation for improving the coverage and throughput of the network. In this paper, we consider the problem of routing and centralized scheduling for such networks. We first fix the routing, which reduces the network to a tree. We then present a finite horizon(More)
We develop new scheduling algorithms for the IEEE 802.16d OFDMA/TDD based broadband wireless access system, in which radio resources of both time and frequency slots are dynamically shared by all users. Our objective is to provide a fair and efficient allocation to all the users to satisfy their quality of service
We provide analytical models for capacity evaluation of an infrastructure IEEE 802.11 based network carrying TCP controlled file downloads or full-duplex packet telephone calls. In each case the analytical models utilize the attempt probabilities from a well known fixed-point based saturation analysis. For TCP controlled file downloads, following Bruno et(More)
BACKGROUND Although we know much about the molecular makeup of the sinus node (SN) in small mammals, little is known about it in humans. The aims of the present study were to investigate the expression of ion channels in the human SN and to use the data to predict electrical activity. METHODS AND RESULTS Quantitative polymerase chain reaction, in situ(More)

Malaria was nearly eradicated from India in the early 1960s but the disease has re-emerged as a major public health problem. Early set backs in malaria eradication coincided with DDT shortages. Later in the 1960s and 1970s malaria resurgence was the result of technical, financial and operational problems. In the late 1960s malaria cases in urban areas(More)
Motivated by the ABR class of service in ATM networks, we study a continuous-time queueing system with a feedback control of the arrival rate of some of the sources. The feedback regarding the queue length or the total workload is provided at regular intervals(variations on it, especially the EPRCA algorithm, are also considered). The propagation delays can(More)
The Indian National Malaria Eradication Programme (NMEP) is reporting 2.5 to 3 million malaria cases, and about 1,000 malaria deaths annually. Malaria in the northeastern states is stable and in the peninsular India unstable. There are six major and three minor malaria vectors, of which Anopheles culicifacies transmits malaria in rural areas and An.(More)
