—In this paper, a cooperative diffusion-based molecular communication system is considered where distributed receivers collaboratively determine a transmitter's signal. In this system, the receivers first make local hard decisions about the current transmitted bit and then report these decisions to a fusion center (FC). The FC combines the local hard(More)
—In this paper, the error performance achieved by cooperative detection among K distributed receivers in a diffusion-based molecular communication (MC) system is analyzed and optimized. In this system, the receivers first make local hard decisions on the transmitted symbol and then report these decisions to a fusion center (FC). The FC combines the local(More)
Black shank, caused by Phytophthora parasitica var. nicotianae, is a widespread and destructive disease of tobacco. Crop rotation is essential in controlling black shank. Here, we confirmed that rotating black shank-infested fields with rapeseed (Brassica napus) suppressed the incidence this disease. Further study demonstrated that rapeseed roots have a(More)
Acknowledgments I am deeply grateful to my esteemed advisor, Dr. Christian R. Shelton, for his invaluable and endless mentoring, support, and encouragement. Without his help, I would not have been able to enjoy my five years' journey and complete this dissertation. His broad knowledge, enthusiasm, sharp insight, willingness to help, and integrity set an(More)
