Partial transmit sequences (PTS) is one of the attractive techniques to reduce the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system. As conventional PTS technique requires an exhaustive searching over all the combinations of the given phase factors, which results in the computational complexity increases(More)
Exploiting the unique properties of the physical layer to enhance or complement authentication strength in wireless networks has attracted a lot of research attention recently. In this paper, we propose a novel PHYsical layer Challenge-Response Authentication Mechanism (PHY-CRAM) for wireless networks. PHY-CRAM is suitable for both one-way and mutual(More)
At first, this paper presents an overview on the background and technical merits of wireless access for vehicular environments (WAVE) systems. Next, a WAVE testbed was setup and the preliminary experimental results are reported. The WAVE testbed operates at the center frequency of 5.9 GHz and adopts a signal format defined by a draft of the IEEE 802.11p(More)
In this paper, we provide the design criteria of the nonlinear companding transforms for reduction in peak-toaverage power ratio (PAPR) of multi-carrier modulation (MCM) signals, which can enable the original MCM signals to be transformed into the desirable distribution. As examples, some novel nonlinear companding transforms have been proposed to transform(More)
It has been widely known that one of the key design parameters in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems is the distribution of peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR). Recently some theoretical approaches to determine the PAPR distribution have been proposed based on the assumption that all subcarriers are allocated with equal power. However,(More)
This letter considers a compute-and-forward two-way relaying channel with simultaneous wireless information and power transfer. Specifically, two single-antenna users exchange information via a multiantenna relay station based on nested lattice codes. Meanwhile, wireless energies flow from the relay to users for circuit consumption and uplink transmission.(More)
