Efficiency and Security Analysis in Multi-User Wireless Communication Systems: Cooperation, Competition and Malicious BehaviorDownload
Efficiency and security are major concerns with increasingly higher importance in modern wireless communications. These two concerns are especially significant for multi-user wireless communications where different users share or compete for resources. Among different users, there are...
Background: Health care budgets are limited and under pressure. Funding new health technologies has an opportunity cost – while some patients benefit, others lose out as resources are reallocated away from existing health care services. This has implications for social value considerations in the...
Cognitive radio is an emerging spectrum-agile technology to alleviate the upcoming spectrum shortage problem. In a cognitive radio network, unlicensed users (secondary users) can access the licensed spectrum if there is no transmission/reception activity of licensed users (primary users) in an...
Regarding the problems of resource allocation in OFDMA-based wireless communication systems, much of the research effort mainly focuses on finding efficient power control and subcarrier assignment policies. With systems employing multicast transmission, the available schemes in literature are not...
Resource allocation, water relations and crown architecture examined at the tree and stand-level in northern conifersDownload
Variation in quantity of light has driven plants to employ many strategies in order to persist in high and low light. It is also a primary driver of lower branch mortality and crown recession. Fine roots and leaves are complimentary tissues representing belowground and aboveground resource...
Every healthcare system faces unlimited demands and limited resources, creating a need to make decisions that may limit access to some new, potentially effective technologies. It has become increasingly clearer that such decisions are more than technical ones. They require social value...
The effects of defoliation on growth, reproduction and pollination of a non-native legume (Astragalus cicer) in the mixedgrass prairieDownload
Herbivory can lead to trade-offs between plant growth and reproduction as defoliated plants lose initial resource investments and have reduced photosynthetic capacity. This trade-off can lead to reduced investment into reproductive structures and have repercussions for floral traits, pollinator...
Using GIS to interpret automated speed enforcement guidelines and guide deployment decisions in mobile photo enforcement programsDownload
Automated speed enforcement (ASE) guidelines are designed to guide enforcement agencies in operating ASE programs that are effective in improving traffic safety. Given that appropriate deployment decisions are essential to a program’s effectiveness, a number of deployment priorities are generally...
