    • Multifractal products of stochastic processes: construction and some basic properties 

      Mannersalo , Petteri; Riedi, Rudolf H.; Norros , Ilkka (2002-01-15)
      In various fields, such as teletraffic and economics, measured times series have been reported to adhere to multifractal scaling. Classical cascading measures possess multifractal scaling, but their increments form a ...
    • Multifractal Properties of TCP Traffic: a Numerical Study 

      Riedi, Rudolf H.; Vehel, Jacques (1997-10-20)
      We analyze two traces of TCP--traffic recorded at the gateway of a LAN corre­ sponding to two hours at Berkeley and to eight hours at CNET labs respectively. We are mainly interested in a multifractal approach, which we ...

    • Multifractals and Wavelets: A potential tool in Geophysics 

      Riedi, Rudolf H. (1998-01-01)
      The study of fractal quantities and structures exhibiting highly erratic features on all scales has proved to be of outstanding significance in various disciplines. While scaling phenomena are pervasive in natural and ...
    • MultiHop Communication is Order Optimal for Homogeneous Sensor Networks 

      Chakrabarti, Arnab; Sabharwal, Ashutosh; Aazhang, Behnaam (2004-04-01)
      The main goal of this paper is to show that multi-hop single-user communication achieves the per node transport capacity of O(lnN/N) in homogeneous sensor networks, making it order-optimal. Our contributions in this paper ...
    • Multilevel Codes and Iterative Multistage Decoding: Rate Design Rules and Practical Considerations 

      Borran, Mohammad Jaber; Aazhang, Behnaam (2000-09-20)
      It is well known that MultiLevel Coding (MLC) and MultiStage Decoding (MSD) suffice to approach capacity if the rates at different levels are chosen appropriately. In most of the practical cases, however, the rate design ...
    • Multilevel coding of broadcast video over wirless channels 

      Cakareski, Zeljko; Ahmed, Nasir; Dhar, Aditya; Aazhang, Behnaam (2002-05-20)
      This paper addresses the problem of broadcasting video over wireless channels. In such a scenario, different end users perceive the video signal through channels with different quality. We propose a source-channel coding ...
    • Multilingual Open-Content Signal Processing Laboratories in Connexions 

      Frantz, Patrick; Baraniuk, Richard G.; Choi, Hyeokho; Jones, Douglas L. (2004-11-01)
      Due to inherent factors like a small and fragmented market and rapid hardware obsolescence, the conventional textbook is inadequate for DSP laboratory education. Freely available open-content materials that enable and ...
    • Multimodal snapshot spectral imaging for oral cancer diagnostics: a pilot study 

      Bedard, Noah; Schwarz, Richard A.; Hu, Aaron; Bhattar, Vijayashree; Howe, Jana; Williams, Michelle D.; Gillenwater, Ann M.; Richards-Kortum, Rebecca; Tkaczyk, Tomasz S. (2013-05-24)
      Optical imaging and spectroscopy have emerged as effective tools for detecting malignant changes associated with oral cancer. While clinical studies have demonstrated high sensitivity and specificity for detection, current ...

    • Multiple access schemes over multipath fading channels 

      Erkip, Elza; Aazhang, Behnaam (1998-10-20)
      We compare the performance of different accessing schemes for communication over an additive white Gaussian noise multiple access channel with multipath fading. We assume that only the receiver can track the channel ...

      Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G. (1999-10-01)
      Wavelet-based image denoising algorithm depends upon the energy compaction property of wavelet transforms. However, for many real-world images, we cannot expect good energy compaction in a single wavelet domain, because ...
