Bayesian variable selection has gained much empirical success recently in a variety of applications when the number K of explanatory variables (x1,. .. , xK) is possibly much larger than the sample size n. For generalized linear models, if most of the xj's have very small effects on the response y, we show that it is possible to use Bayesian variable… (More)
For an odd prime p and two positive integers n ≥ 3 and k with n gcd(n,k) being odd, the paper determines the weight distribution of a p-ary cyclic code C over F p with nonzeros α −1 , α
For supporting location-aware computing in indoor environments, the location sensing/positioning system not only need to provide objects' precise location, but also should own such characteristics as: isotropy and convenience for portability. In this paper, we present an indoor location sensing system, Cicada. This System is based on the TDOA (time… (More)
In this paper, we follow the recent work of Helleseth, Kholosha, Johanssen and Ness to study the cross correlation between an m-sequence of period 2 m − 1 and the d-decimation of an m-sequence of shorter period 2 n − 1 for an even number m = 2n. Assuming that d satisfies d(2 l + 1) = 2 i (mod 2 n − 1) for some l and i, we prove the cross correlation takes… (More)
For a truncated quiver algebra over a field of arbitrary characteristic, its Hochschild cohomology is calculated. Moreover , it is shown that its Hochschild cohomology algebra is finite-dimensional if and only if its global dimension is finite if and only if its quiver has no oriented cycles.
This paper presents a novel multimodal system to track the participants and identify the active speaker in the smart meeting room. Indoor localization system, Cicada, is used to obtain the location and identity information of the participants. Cicada, developed by our research group, can provide much higher localization precision than most visual tracking… (More)
The wireless sensor network based localization system—Cicada is designed to support the location-awareness in indoor environment. The system is based on TDOA (time difference of arrival) between radio frequency and ultrasonic to measure the distances, uses the SWF(slide window filter) and least square fitting for the rough distance correction, adopts the… (More)
