Data Fusion Based Physical Layer Protocols for Cognitive Radio Applications
This thesis proposes and analyzes data fusion algorithms that operate on the physical layer of a wireless sensor network, in the context of three applications of cognitive radios: 1. Cooperative spectrum sensing via binary ...
Spectrum Sensing Techniques For Cognitive Radio Applications
Cognitive Radio (CR) has received tremendous research attention over the past decade, both in the academia and industry, as it is envisioned as a promising solution to the problem of spectrum scarcity. ACR is a device that ...
Finding A Subset Of Non-defective Items From A Large Population : Fundamental Limits And Efficient Algorithms
Consider a large population containing a small number of defective items. A commonly encountered goal is to identify the defective items, for example, to isolate them. In the classical non-adaptive group testing (NAGT) ...
Optimal Amplify-And-Forward Relaying For Cooperative Communications And Underlay Cognitive Radio
Relay-assisted cooperative communication exploits spatial diversity to combat wireless fading, and is an appealing technology for next generation wireless systems. Several relay cooperation protocols have been proposed in ...
Role of Channel State Information in Adaptation in Current and Next Generation Wireless Systems
Motivated by the increasing demand for higher data rates, coverage, and spectral efficiency, current and next generation wireless systems adapt transmission parameters and even who is being transmitted to, based on the ...
Interference Modeling in Wireless Networks
Cognitive radio (CR) networks and heterogeneous cellular networks are promising approaches to satisfy the demand for higher data rates and better connectivity. A CR network increases the utilization of the radio spectrum ...
