Competitive traits and the stability of wheat cultivars in differing natural weed environments on the northern Canadian prairiesDownload
Nine spring wheat cultivars, selected on the basis of height, tillering capacity and maturity, were grown in differing levels of natural weed presence at three locations in Edmonton and New Norway, Alberta between 2003 and 2004. The objectives of the study were to (1) identify competitive traits...
Synchronization is a very important part of every digital communication receiver. While in bandpass coherent transmission, frequency and phase synchronization play a very important role in reliable transmission, symbol timing recovery is a necessary part of every baseband and bandpass coherent...
The boreal chorus frog (Pseudacris maculata) is a widespread species but we know little of its ecology. I examined the nature and existence of competitive mechanisms operating between larvae of the boreal chorus frog and wood frog (Lithobates sylvaticus) from field, mesocosm and laboratory venues...
A prototype system which has integrated a linear accelerator (linac) with a magnetic resonance imager (MRI) has been constructed at the Cross Cancer Institute. The real time operation of a linac-MRI system will require proper radio frequency (RF) shielding such that the MRI images can be acquired...
Reduced–Complexity Transmission and Reception Strategies in Coordinated Multi-cell Wireless NetworksDownload
Interference is known as a major obstacle for the spectral efficiency increase promised by multiple-antenna techniques in cellular wireless communications. Recently, it has been shown that multi-cell coordination can mitigate interference and improve system performance dramatically. Hence, we...
Synchronisation and Wavelet Compression for Background Interference Classification in Wireless EnvironmentsDownload
Dense wireless deployment environments are increasingly facing Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum congestion and increased levels of interference. Addressing the interference will require a distributed decision-making application on wireless nodes, that characterize the state of the channel with...
In this thesis, we focus on topics relevant to developing and deploying large-scale wireless sensor network (WSN) applications within real dynamic urban environments. Given few reported experiences in the literature, we designed our own such network to provide a foundation for our research. The...
