    Requirements for increasingly complex, scalable, and dynamic wireless networks, which provide assured end-to-end broadband connectivity in a wide range of scenarios, have been emerging. In this context, we have been investigating wireless technologies that provide extremely high data rates through the use of narrow-beam free space optical (FSO) and/or radio-frequency (RF) point-to-point links. The... View full abstract»

    Cognitive radios have become a key research area in communications over the past few years. Automatic modulation classification (AMC) is an important component that improves the overall performance of the cognitive radio. Most modulated signals exhibit the property of cyclostationarity that can be exploited for the purpose of classification. In this paper, AMCs that are based on exploiting the cyc...

    It is well known that a large variety of systems and control problems can be formulated as optimization problems. The classical approach pursued in typical contexts is to look for a closed form solution to the specific optimization problem at hand. The last decade has seen a noticeable shift in the meaning of "closed form" solution. The formidable increase of computational power has dramatically c... View full abstract»

    This simplified introduction to wavelets starts with a short historical background. The continuous wavelet transform is presented. The multiresolution concept is concisely described. It is followed by the filter banks method for wavelet analysis and reconstruction. Wavelet packets are briefly presented. Some typical applications are mentioned. View full abstract»

    With the burst of Information Technology (IT) bubble at the beginning of this century, people are looking for the next wave of technology in which to invest. While we believe that biomedical applications and systems are this next stage, unfortunately, the engineering and bioscience communities are unprepared for the many challenges. In order to connect the engineering and the biomedical science co... View full abstract»
