    • UNIFIED DECODER ARCHITECTURE FOR LDPC/TURBO CODES 

      Sun, Yang; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (2008-10-01)
      Low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes on par with convolutional turbo codes (CTC) are two of the most powerful error correction codes known to perform very close to the Shannon limit. However, their different code structures ...
    • Unitary Equivalence and Signal Processing 

      Baraniuk, Richard G.; Jones, Douglas L. (1993-08-01)
      The notions of time, frequency, and scale are generalized using concepts from unitary operator theory and eigenanalysis. The result is an infinite number of new signal analysis and processing tools that are implemented ...
    • Unitary Equivalence: A New Twist on Signal Processing 

      Baraniuk, Richard G.; Jones, Douglas L. (1995-10-01)
      Unitary similarity transformations furnish a powerful vehicle for generating infinite generic classes of signal analysis and processing tools based on concepts different from time, frequency, and scale. Implementation of ...
    • Universal classification for wireless CDMA communications 

      Yue, Lin (1998)
      Since channel characteristics of a practical code division multiple access (CDMA) system are usually unknown and difficult to model accurately, we focus on the design of non-parametric adaptive receivers with two general ...
