    Soon after the discovery and characterization of electromagnetic fields by Faraday and Thomson, the prediction by Maxwell that changing electrical fields will produce electromagnetic waves and, the experimental verification of their existence by Hertz, four enterprising innovators, namely, Tesla, Marconi, Fessenden, and De Forrest, and many others, designed the first generation of wireless communi...

    Operational amplifiers (OpAmps) have found extensive applications in analog circuits and systems for communications, consumer electronics, controls and signal conversion. Two-stage OpAmps with freguency compensation are popular for driving capacitive loads while ensuring sufficient gain and stability. Frequency compensation technigues have been evolving over the last decades in distinct applicatio... View full abstract»

    Peer-to-peer network describes a typical complex network upon which users connect together according to their sharing preference, indicated by the resources they shared. In this article, we apply analytic methods from complex networks theory to investigate the sharing preference of users as well as the correlations between different resource categories in a real peer-to-peer file sharing system, w...

    Low-Density Parity-check (LDPC) code, being one of the most promising near-Shannon limit error correction codes (ECCs) in practice, has attracted tremendous attention in both academia and industry since its rediscovery in middle 1990's. Owning excellent coding gain, LDPC code also has very low error floor, and inherent parallizable decoding schemes. Compared to other ECCs such as Turbo codes, BCH ... View full abstract»
