    • Directional Antenna Diversity for Mobile Devices: Characterizations and Solutions 

      Amiri Sani, Ardalan (2011)
      We report a first-of-its-kind realization of directional transmission for smartphone-like mobile devices using multiple passive directional antennas, supported by only one RF chain. The key is a multi-antenna system (MiDAS) ...
    • Directional Complex-Wavelet Processing 

      Fernandes, Felix; van Spaendonck, Rutger; Burrus, C. Sidney (2000-08-20)
      Poor directional selectivity, a major disadvantage of the separable 2D discrete wavelet transform (DWT), has previously been circumvented either by using highly redundant, nonseparable wavelet transforms or by using ...

      Chan, Wai Lam; Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2004-05-01)
      We extend the wavelet transform to handle multidimensional signals that are smooth save for singularities along lower-dimensional manifolds. We first generalize the complex wavelet transform to higher dimensions using a ...
    • Directional Scale Analysis for Seismic Interpretation 

      van Spaendonck, Rutger; Baraniuk, Richard G. (1999-11-01)
      A combined space-Fourier representation focused on directional scale analysis is presented. The method leads to a space-log polar frequency distribution. Application to seismic data shows differentiation in scale and ...
    • Directional, shift-insensitive, complex wavelet transforms with controllable redundancy 

      Fernandes, Felix Carlos A. (2002)
      Although the Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) is a powerful tool for signal and image processing, it has three serious disadvantages. First, the DWT is shift sensitive because input-signal shifts generate unpredictable ...

      Fernandes, Felix (2001-08-20)
      Although the Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) is a powerful tool for signal and image processing, it has three serious disadvantages. First, the DWT is shift sensitive because input-signal shifts generate unpredictable ...
    • Discovery of optimal zeolites for challenging separations and chemical transformations using predictive materials modeling 

      Bai, Peng; Jeon, Mi Yeong; Ren, Limin; Knight, Chris; Deem, Michael W.; Tsapatsis, Michael; Siepmann, J. Ilja (2015)
      Zeolites play numerous important roles in modern petroleum refineries and have the potential to advance the production of fuels and chemical feedstocks from renewable resources. The performance of a zeolite as separation ...
    • Discrete finite variation: A new measure of smoothness for the design of wavelet basis 

      Odegard, Jan E.; Burrus, C. Sidney (1996-05-20)
      A new method for measuring and designing smooth wavelet basis which dispenses with the need for having a large number of zero moments of the wavelet is given. The method is based on minimizing the "discrete finite variation", ...
    • Discrete-time linear periodically time-varying systems: Analysis, realization and model reduction 

      Hu, Jing (2003)
      Discrete-time linear periodically time-varying (LPTV) systems, considered as a bridge between the well-studied linear time-invariant (LTI) model and the nonlinear time-varying problems in real world, have been receiving ...
    • Displacement MIMO Kalman equalizer architecture for CDMA downlink in fast fading channels 

      Guo, Yuanbin; Zhang, Jianzhong (Charlie); McCain, Dennis; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (2005-07-01)
      In this paper, we explore the displacement structure in a Kalman equalizer for MIMO-CDMA downlink. A streamlined MIMO Kalman equalizer architecture is proposed to extract the commonality in the data path by exploiting the ...

      In this paper, a streamlined MIMO Kalman equalizer architecture is proposed to extract the commonality in the data path by jointly considering the displacement structure of the transition matrix and the block-Toeplitz ...
    • DistancePPG: Robust non-contact vital signs monitoring using a camera 

      Kumar, Mayank; Veeraraghavan, Ashok; Sabharwal, Ashutosh (2015)
      Vital signs such as pulse rate and breathing rate are currently measured using contact probes. But, non-contact methods for measuring vital signs are desirable both in hospital settings (e.g. in NICU) and for ubiquitous ...
    • Distinguishing between plasmon-induced and photoexcited carriers in a device geometry 

      Zheng, Bob Y.; Zhao, Hangqi; Manjavacas, Alejandro; McClain, Michael; Nordlander, Peter (2015)
      The use of surface plasmons, charge density oscillations of conduction electrons of metallic nanostructures, to boost the efficiency of light-harvesting devices through increased light-matter interactions could drastically ...
    • Distorted Channel Capacity: A Geometrical Approach 

      Das, Suman; Cavallaro, Joseph R.; Erkip, Elza; Aazhang, Behnaam (2000-06-20)
      Shannon's capacity result has often been used as a benchmark to compare the performance of practical codes. Shannon's theorem helps us to calculate the maximum rate at which data can be transferred without making any errors. ...
