Compressed sensing is a signal processing method that acquires data directly in a compressed form. This allows one to make less measurements than what was considered necessary to record a signal, enabling faster or more precise measurement protocols in a wide range of applications. Using an interdisciplinary approach, we have recently proposed in [1] a(More)
Compressed sensing is triggering a major evolution in signal acquisition. It consists in sampling a sparse signal at low rate and later using computational power for its exact reconstruction, so that only the necessary information is measured. Currently used reconstruction techniques are, however, limited to acquisition rates larger than the true density of(More)
—Unexpected disasters, both naturally occurring and those caused through human actions, result in severe damage to communication infrastructure. Additionally, such events are accompanied by sharp spikes in the usage of commercially licensed spectrum, when affected victims of the tragedy attempt to transmit information about themselves and capture high(More)
Decomposition techniques for linear programming are difficult to extend to conic optimization problems with general nonpolyhedral convex cones because the conic inequalities introduce an additional nonlinear coupling between the variables. However in many applications the convex cones have a partially separable structure that allows them to be characterized(More)
Previous studies proved that interferon gamma (IFN-γ) gene polymorphisms were associated with the risk of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. However, the association between IFN-γ polymorphisms and HBV-related liver cirrhosis (HBV-LC) risk is still unclear. IFN-γ +874 T/A and +2109G/A genotypes were determined in 126 HBV-LC patients, 129 chronic hepatitis(More)
Recent underwater sensor network research has focused on developing physical, medium access control, and network layer protocols to enable high data rate, energy-efficient and reliable acoustic communications. However, it is now essential to design and standardize architectures that will enhance the usability and interoperability of underwater networks. (More)
Although intestinal flora are crucial in maintaining immune homeostasis of the intestine, the role of intestinal flora in immune responses at other mucosal surfaces remains less clear. Here, we show that intestinal flora composition critically regulates the toll-like receptor 7 (TLR7) signaling pathway following respiratory influenza virus infection. TLR7(More)
