    The real-time minimal-bit-error probability (RTMBEP) decoding procedure recently presented by Lee is compared with the sequential compound decoding procedure originally described by Abend and Fritchman for the detection of symbols in the presence of intersymbol interference. We compare the number of computations and the amount of storage required for each algorithm as well as show how Lee's proced... View full abstract»

    The paper treats linear and nonlinear methods that refine the delta modulation process. These methods improve the quality of the decoded signal at a given transmission rate. Two linear processes are analyzed. The first one matches the source signal to the coder for minimum weighted noise in the decoded signal. The second one influences the signal which is fed to the comparator; it shapes the spect... View full abstract»

    Effects of clock drift on the performance of a discretetime control system for synchronizing all the clocks in a digital communications network are shown by a detailed analysis of the dynamic behavior of the simple case of a two-node network. With a unidirectional frequency drift of one or both oscillators, it is shown that the buffer stores eventually overflow. A more general linear control schem... View full abstract»

    A concentration network is a contact switching network that provides a number of potential users (connected to its inputs) with access to a smaller number of equivalent resources (connected to its outputs). Its basic property is that any sufficiently small subset of the inputs can be simultaneously connected by disjoint paths to distinct outputs, although the particular outputs to which they are t...

    This paper is a sequel to previous papers which considered the characteristics of a proposed synchronization control system for an integrated telephone network. In those papers, delay of the paths of each junction, one for transmission and the other for control signal, were assumed to have the same value. Though the analysis produced exact expressions for the static and dynamic characteristics of ... View full abstract»

    Simple methods that compensate for low- and highfrequency delay distortions, which are the predominant distortions in a baseband hybrid digital transmision line, have been developed. Compensation for low frequency distortion is optimized by a rational minimum-phase function. Compensation for high-frequency distortion is attained by a combination of an optimum cutoff shape and an all-pass network. ... View full abstract»

    When constant-amplitude signals and noise constitute the input to a bandpass device exhibiting a nonlinear input-output power characteristic and AM/PM conversion, the relative signal levels may change and intermodulation (IM) products are produced. A new and totally general method of evaluating the complex Fourier coefficient of any desired output component is presented. The analysis is based on r... View full abstract»

    The problem of designing minimum-cost multidrop lines which connect remote terminals to a concentrator or a central data-processing computer is studied. In some cases, optimal solutions can be obtained by using either linear integer programming or a branch-bound method. These approaches are not practical, since they lack flexibility and require an enormous amount of computer time for most practica... View full abstract»

    Interpolative digital-to-analog (D/A) converters produce a final output via a two-step process. First, each digital input word is used to control a circuit whose output oscillates rapidly (i.e., many times faster than new digital input values are provided) between coarsely spaced analog values (i.e., many times coarser than the resolution specified by the input word). Second, the oscillating analo... View full abstract»

    Modern carrier systems have evolved in which all transmission is digital and channels are obtained by time-division multiplexing. A time-division switch, which, as a consequence of this environment is very simply configured, is presented. Random access memories and shift registers are employed in a configuration which differs from the time division switch canonical form. In this switch both space ... View full abstract»

    Methods that increase the speed of digital detection comparators can also produce hysteresis, wherein the effective threshold in a given signaling interval is influenced by the previous output. If the comparator is fed by a peak-limited IF detector output followed by a detection filter with unity dc gain, the hysteresis can be a significant fraction of the peak comparator input.
