Space-time block codes (STBCs) from orthogonal designs proposed by Alamouti, and Tarokh-Jafarkhani-Calderbank have attracted considerable attention lately due to their fast maximum-likelihood (ML) decoding and full diversity. However, the maximum symbol transmission rate of an STBC from complex orthogonal designs for complex signals is only 3/4 for three(More)
A general space-frequency (SF) block code structure is proposed that can guarantee full-rate (one channel symbol per subcarrier) and full-diversity transmission in multiple-input multiple-output-orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems. The proposed method can be used to construct SF codes for an arbitrary number of transmit antennas,(More)
—Multiple input multiple output (MIMO) communication systems with orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) modulation have a great potential to play an important role in the design of the next-generation broadband wireless communication systems. In this paper, we address the problem of performance analysis and code design for MIMO-OFDM systems when(More)
In this paper, symbol-error-rate (SER) performance analysis and optimum power 1 allocation are provided for uncoded cooperative communications in wireless networks with 2 either decode-and-forward (DF) or amplify-and-forward (AF) cooperation protocol, in which 3 source and relay send information to destination through orthogonal channels. In case of the 4(More)
In this letter, we propose a differential amplify-and-forward (AF) transmission scheme for a two-user cooperative communications system. By efficiently combining signals from both direct and relay links, the proposed scheme provides superior performance compared to those of direct transmissions with either differential detection or coherent detection. While(More)
Online databases respond to a user query with result records encoded in HTML files. Data extraction, which is important for many applications, extracts the records from the HTML files automatically. We present a novel data extraction method, ODE (Ontology-assisted Data Extraction), which automatically extracts the query result records from the HTML pages.(More)
—This paper considers the problem of space-frequency code design for frequency-selective multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) modulation. We show that space-time codes achieving full diversity in quasistatic flat fading environment can be used to construct space-frequency codes that can achieve the maximum(More)
In this work, a cognitive cooperative communication protocol is proposed for cognitive ad-hoc networks, in which primary users and cognitive radio (CR) users may cooperate for mutual benefit. The new cooperation protocol allows active cooperation between primary users and CR users in which CR users assist to relay primary users' signals in exchange for some(More)
We derive a closed-form symbol-error-rate (SER) formulation for the cooperation system with PSK and QAM signals. Moreover, two SER upper bounds are established to show the asymptotic performance of the cooperation protocol, in which one of them is tight at a high signal-to-noise ratio. Based on the SER performance analysis, we also determine the optimum(More)
