We introduce a scheme that achieves a diversity gain for coded systems under static fading conditions by using multiple antennas and random signal mapping. In a two-antenna system, the BER performance of the proposed scheme approaches that of Alamouti's scheme when the channel is perfectly known. In the presence of channel mismatch, the proposed scheme(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the study was to investigate the association between depression and/or depressive symptoms during pregnancy and the risk of an operative delivery or preeclampsia, and to quantify the strength of the association. METHODS A search of the PubMed, SCI/SSCI, Proquest PsycARTICLES and CINAHL databases was supplemented by manual(More)
—In this paper, we present practical interference management schemes in heterogeneous networks (HetNets) based on interference decoding and cancellation at the receivers. The underlying idea is based on Han-Kobayashi type message splitting (MS) technique [3]. We develop relatively low-complexity precoders that facilitate interference mitigation and maximize(More)
Energy detection is widely used by cognitive radios for spectrum sensing. During a silent period, secondary users (SUs) are kept silent so that the energy detector does not confuse SU signals for primary user (PU) signals. Due to imperfect coordination, an SU may transmit during a silent period and cause possible false alarms. We propose to leverage matched(More)
Single-carrier frequency-division multiple access (SC-FDMA) system suffers performance degradation when the length of the cyclic prefix (CP) is less than the channel delay spread. In this paper, based on MMSE criterion, we proposed an efficient frequency domain soft-decision feedback equalization (FD-SDFE) scheme for SC-FDMA system. The proposed scheme(More)
BACKGROUND Equitable access to basic public health services is a priority in China. However, primary healthcare workers' competence to deliver public health services is relatively poor because they lack professional training. Since the availability of web-based training has increased in China, the current study explored stakeholders' perceptions of a(More)
