Learning process of each D2D transmitter involves cooperation from neighboring D2D agents by exchanging their latest Q-values. An additional parameter called cooperation range is used to determine the neighboring pairs whose Q-values can be used for learning the optimal policy. The limited prior information prevents a linear increase in the dimensions of Q-value matrix of each learning agent when the number of D2D pairs within the cell is huge. Though WCopQL-RS involves additional information exchange among agents as compared to independent learning but also provides improved system throughput and convergence speed. It is shown through simulation results that WCopQL-RS outperforms other existing schemes in terms of average D2D user throughput, energy consumption and fairness value.]]>1314207820873026<![CDATA[Complexity-adjustable SC decoding of polar codes for energy consumption reduction]]>1314208820963701<![CDATA[Multi-carrier chaotic communication scheme for underwater acoustic communications]]>1314209721055040<![CDATA[Ranging and fingerprinting-based indoor Wi-Fi localisation using channel state information]]>1314210621142880<![CDATA[Physical layer security of hybrid satellite-terrestrial relay networks with multiple colluding eavesdroppers over non-identically distributed Nakagami-<italic>m</italic> fading channels]]>m fading. Herein, the authors consider a multi-antenna satellite, which communicates with a terrestrial user via an amplify-and-forward relay in the presence of multiple colluding eavesdroppers at the earth. They derive novel expressions of secrecy outage probability (SOP), ergodic secrecy capacity, and probability of positive secrecy capacity for the proposed network. They further obtain the achievable secrecy diversity order of the considered HSTRN by employing asymptotic analysis of SOP expression. Finally, numerical and simulation results are provided to validate the accuracy of the proposed analysis and to highlight the impact of a multi-antenna satellite on future wireless systems.]]>1314211521232064<![CDATA[Performance analysis of cooperative fixed-gain relaying system in severe fading channels]]>SD) link under deep fade condition is ignored. However, the link may experience a severe fading condition which can still contribute partially towards system diversity. Therefore, the authors assume that SD link undergoes severe fading (i.e. Weibull fading with severity parameter less than two), while the other asymmetric fading channels of the source-to-relay and the relay-to-destination links are subjected to Weibull and Rician fading, respectively. The derivations of analytical expressions for cumulative distribution function and probability density function of the instantaneous output signal-to-noise ratio at the destination terminal, allow the evaluation of outage probability, bit error probability with their diversity order of the particular system design. From the results, at a certain Weibull severity level, the SD link can be omitted and considered as deep fade since it offers insignificant diversity order.]]>1314212421313041<![CDATA[Power-splitting relaying protocol for wireless energy harvesting and information processing in NOMA systems]]>1314213221404283<![CDATA[Efficient decoding approach<?show [AQ ID=Q1]?> for NB-LDPC codes with short blocklength]]>1314214121452356<![CDATA[Cooperative scheduling of multi-core and cloud resources: multi-thread-based MCC offloading strategy]]>1314214621542422<![CDATA[Performance analysis of MIMO AF CDMA hybrid satellite-terrestrial cooperative networks using multiple relays strategy for downlink]]>m fading channel is considered for the terrestrial base station relay-mobile destination link. In this study, the main contribution is to implement multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) configuration is applied on the CDMA HSTCNs, where the overall system performance is studied under different MIMO configurations at the source, relay and destination nodes. The spatial diversity of the multiple antennas is provided by employing the maximum ratio combining scheme. The study examines also the system performance under various numbers of cooperative relays as well as using both orthogonal and non-orthogonal codes between the users. A novel closed expression for the moment generating function of the total end-to-end signal-to-noise ratio for three different transmission strategies. This is to calculate the outage probability, probability of error and the ergodic capacity. Moreover, the analytical and Monte-Carlo simulation results are developed for different transmission techniques to show the improvement in the performance of the proposed HSTCNs.]]>1314215521624513<![CDATA[Uplink multi-carrier multiple access scheme LDS-IOTA]]>1314216321671746<![CDATA[High-throughput Bit Flipping decoder for structured LDPC codes]]>.1 and 0.45 mm^{2}, and they achieve an average throughput of 147.57 and 268.5 Gbps and energy efficiency of 0.92 and 0.91 pJ/bit for (273, 191) and (1023, 781) FG-LDPC codes, respectively.
