—Dynamic resource allocation is a key technique that can significantly improve the performance of next generation wireless systems under guaranteed QoS to users. Most of the current resource allocation algorithms are, however, limited to unicast traffics. In practice, how to efficiently allocate various resources in multicast wireless systems is not known.(More)
—In cognitive radio networks, knowledge of the position of the primary users is very important as it can be used to avoid harmful interference to the primary users, while at the same time be exploited to improve the spectrum utilization. In this paper, a semi range-based localization algorithm is proposed for the secondary users in cognitive radio networks(More)
Array based source location attracts a growing interest nowadays, which is frequently used in videoconference, hearing aids and hands free telephone systems to detect a speaker's position. Time delay estimation (TDE) based dual-step source location is assumed to be classical method in this field. Recently, a new technique is developed based on interaural(More)
It is a trend to integrate different wireless access networks into heterogeneous networks in next generation wireless networks. Network selection and QoS support for multiservices are two of the most significant issues in heterogeneous wireless networks (HWN). In this paper, we propose a utility-based network selection scheme for HWN, where the price(More)
The IEEE Standard 802.16 supports for creating wireless mesh networks. The primary advantage of mesh networks is an improvement of capacity by concurrent transmission in the wireless environment. Therefore, the degree of spatial reuse is very crucial to realize the full potential of such wireless mesh networks. In this paper, we investigate the spatial(More)
This paper proposed a post-refining method with fine contextual-dependent GMM for the auto-segmentation task. A GMM trained with a super feature vector extracted from multiple evenly spaced frames near the boundary is suggested to describe the waveform evolution across a boundary. CART is used to cluster acoustically similar GMM, so that the GMM for each(More)
The spread and resonance of users' opinions on SinaWeibo, the most popular micro-blogging website in China, are tremendously influential, having significantly affected the processes of many real-world hot social events. We select 21 hot events that were widely discussed on SinaWeibo in 2011, and do some statistical analyses. Our main findings are that (i)(More)
