    In this paper, we introduce a novel approach based on Tucker Decomposition and quasi-periodic nature of ECG signal for fetal ECG extraction from abdominal ECG mixture. We adapt variable periodicity constraint of the ECG components to main objective function of the Tucker Decomposition and shape it to matrix form in order to simply optimize the objective function. We form a 3rd order tensor by stacking the mixed multichannel ECG and reconstructed fetal and maternal subspaces using BSS methods in order to have the benefit of further artificial observations, and apply our proposed penalized decomposition on it. The proposed method is evaluated on synthetic and real datasets using the criteria...

    This study presents an efficient handoff algorithm for heterogeneous networks comprising macrocells, microcells, picocells, and femtocells. The proposed algorithm is based on call admission control (CAC) for selecting target base station (BS) from a list of neighbouring candidate BSs, as well as using the technique for order of preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS) as decision method. The introduced algorithm takes into account multiple criteria including measured received signal strength (RSS) and signal-to-interference-plus noise ratio (SINR), predicted RSS and SINR, and number of free resource blocks of neighbouring BSs. With the use of TOPSIS, neighbouring BSs are ordered...

    Ultrasonic motors (USM's) possess heavy nonlinear and load dependent characteristics such as dead-zone and saturation reverse effects, which vary with driving conditions. In this paper, behavior of an ultrasonic motor is modeled using Hammerstein model structure and experimental measurements. Also, model predictive controllers are designed to obtain precise USM position control. Simulation results indicate improved performance of the motor for both set point tracking and disturbance rejection. © 2005 ISA - The Instrumentation, Systems, and Automation Society  

    Three-user interference channel with common information: A rate splitting-based achievability scheme

    , Article IET Communications ; Vol. 8, Issue. 4 , 2014 , Pages 462-470 ; ISSN: 17518628 Ardalani, N ; Mirmohseni, M ; Aref, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this study, the three-user interference channel (IFC) with common information is considered, where each receiver decode not only the private message from the intended transmitter but also the common messages from the non-intended transmitters by applying a simultaneous decoding scheme. An achievable rate region is presented using rate splitting and superposition encoding at the transmitters and simultaneous joint decoding at the receivers in which the transmitters cooperatively send the split messages which allows the interference cancellation at the receivers. The implicit form of the achievable rate region is also extended to K-user IFC with common information. Finally the inner bound... 

    A new outer bound for a class of interference channels with a cognitive relay and a certain capacity result

    , Article IEEE Communications Letters ; Volume 17, Issue 2 , 2013 , Pages 241-244 ; 10897798 (ISSN) Charmchi, H ; Hodtani, G. A ; Nasiri Kenari, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    The interference channel with a cognitive relay is a variation of the classical two-user interference channel in which a relay aids the transmission among the users. The relay is assumed to have genie-aided cognition: that is it has full, a-priori, knowledge of the messages to be transmitted. We obtain a new outer bound for this channel model and prove capacity for a class of channels in which the transmissions of the two users are non interfering. This capacity result improves on a previous result for the Gaussian case in which the capacity was proved to within a gap of 3 bits/s/Hz  

    On the transmission strategies for the two-user state-dependent gaussian interference channel

    , Article Proceedings of the International Symposium on Wireless Communication Systems ; Aug , 2013 , Pages 224-228 ; 21540217 (ISSN) ; 9783800735297 (ISBN) Ghasemi Goojani, S ; Behroozi, H ; Sharif University of Technology
    IEEE Computer Society  2013
    In this paper, we study a general additive state-dependent Gaussian interference channel (ASD-GIC) where we consider two-user interference channel with two independent states known non-causally at both transmitters, but unknown to either of the receivers. A special case, where there is a common additive state is studied in [1], [2], where it is shown that the gap between the achievable symmetric rate and the upper bound is less than 1 /4 bits for the strong interference case. Here, we also consider the case where interference link gains satisfy a12 ≥ N1/ N2 and a 21 ≥ N2/ N1 (Ni is the channel noise variance) and each channel state has an unbounded variance [3], which is referred to as the... 

    On the sum-capacity and lattice-based transmission strategies for state-dependent Gaussian interference channel

    , Article IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications, PIMRC ; 2012 , Pages 1944-1948 ; 9781467325691 (ISBN) Ghasemi Goojani, S ; Behroozi, H ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this work, we consider an additive state-dependent Gaussian interference channel (ASD-GIC) where there is a common additive interference, known to both transmitters but not to the receivers. First, we obtain an outer bound on the sum-capacity for the asymptotic case where the interference is assumed to be Gaussian variable with unbounded variance. This asymptotic case has been referred to as the "strong interference" in [1]. By applying a lattice-based coding scheme, an achievable rate-region is provided. Under some conditions, which depend on the noise variance and channel power constraints, this achievable sum-rate region meets the outer bound and therefore lattice codes can achieve the... 

    Three-user cognitive interference channel: Capacity region with strong interference

    , Article IET Communications ; Volume 6, Issue 13 , 2012 , Pages 2099-2107 ; 17518628 (ISSN) Mirmohseni, M ; Akhbari, B ; Aref, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology

    This study investigates the capacity region of a three-user cognitive radio network with two primary users and one cognitive user. A three-user cognitive interference channel (C-IFC) is proposed by considering a three-user interference channel (IFC) where one of the transmitters has cognitive capabilities and knows the messages of the other two transmitters in a non-causal manner. First, two inner bounds on the capacity region of the three-user C-IFC are obtained based on using the schemes which allow all receivers to decode all messages with two different orders. Next, two sets of conditions are derived, under which the capacity region of the proposed model coincides with the capacity... 

    Strong interference conditions for Multiple Access-Cognitive Interference Channel

    , Article 12th Canadian Workshop on Information Theory, CWIT 2011, 17 May 2011 through 20 May 2011 ; May , 2011 , Pages 178-181 ; 9781457707438 (ISBN) Mirmohseni, M ; Akhbari, B ; Aref, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, we analyze the capacity region of a communication network where a Multiple Access Channel (MAC) and a point-to-point channel share a same medium and interfere with each other, where the transmitter of the point-to-point channel has cognitive capabilities. We introduce Multiple Access-Cognitive Interference Channel (MA-CIFC), with a two-user MAC as a primary network and a cognitive transmitter-receiver pair in which the cognitive transmitter knows the message being sent by all of the transmitters in a non-causal manner. We obtain an inner bound on the capacity region of MA-CIFC and derive two sets of strong interference conditions under which we establish the capacity regions.... 

    Achievable rate regions for many-to-one Gaussian interference channel with a fusion centre

    Institution of Engineering and Technology  2015
    This paper considers a many-to-one Gaussian interference channel with a fusion centre (FC) where there is a K -user interference channel in which only one relay (receiver) faces interference while the remaining K-1 receivers are interference free. All the relays communicate information about their observed sequence to the FC through noiseless links at communication rate R0. First, by analysing traditional relaying schemes, i.e., Decode and Forward, Compress and Forward and Compute and Forward, three rate-regions for this setting are derived. Then, based on nested lattice codes, a new achievable rate-region is provided. Based on the proposed scheme, one can design a transmission scheme that... 

    Capacity regions for some classes of Causal Cognitive Interference Channels with delay

    , Article 2010 IEEE Information Theory Workshop, ITW 2010 - Proceedings, 30 August 2010 through 3 September 2010 ; 2010 ; 9781424482641 (ISBN) Mirmohseni, M ; Akhbari, B ; Aref, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, we investigate Causal Cognitive Interference Channel (CC-IFC) with delay in which the cognitive user transmission can depend on L future received symbols as well as the past ones. We study two special cases: CC-IFC without delay (L=1), where the cognitive user can use only current and past received symbols, and CC-IFC with a block length delay (L=n), wherein the entire received sequence can be used. In each case, we obtain an inner bound on the capacity region. Our coding schemes are based on the generalized block Markov superposition coding and instantaneous relaying for CC-IFC without delay, and non-causal partial Decode-and-Forward (DF) for CC-IFC with a block length delay.... 

    State-dependent Gaussian Z-interference channel: New results

    , Article Proceedings of 2014 International Symposium on Information Theory and Its Applications, ISITA 2014 ; 26- 29 October , 2014 , pp. 468-472 ; ISBN: 9784885522925 Ghasemi Goojani, S ; Behroozi, H ; Sharif University of Technology
    A class of Gaussian Z-interference channels with state is investigated in the regime of high state power in which two transmitters communicate two independent messages through a 'dirty' Z-interference channel. Transmitter 1 (primary user) interferes with receiver 2 while transmitter 2 (secondary user) does not interfere with receiver 1. In addition, receiver 2 suffers from a random state sequence which is non-causally known only at transmitter 1. For this setup, which is also investigated by Duan et al. in [1], first we characterize the capacity region for the deterministic case and then by the obtained insight from analyzing the deterministic case, we establish sufficient conditions under... 

    On the secrecy of the cognitive interference channel with partial channel states

    , Article Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies ; Volume 27, Issue 11 , 2016 , Pages 1472-1485 ; 21615748 (ISSN) Bafghi, H. G ; Seyfe, B ; Mirmohseni, M ; Aref, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology

    The secrecy problem in the state-dependent cognitive interference channel is considered in this paper. In our model, there are a primary and a secondary (cognitive) transmitter–receiver pairs, in which the cognitive transmitter has the message of the primary one as side information. In addition, the channel is affected by two channel state sequences, which are known at the cognitive transmitter and the corresponding receiver, separately. The cognitive transmitter should cooperate with the primary one, and it wishes to keep its message secure at the primary receiver. The achievable equivocation-rate regions for this channel are derived using two approaches: the binning scheme coding and... 

    A high data-rate energy-efficient interference-tolerant fully integrated CMOS frequency channelized UWB transceiver for impulse radio

    , Article IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits ; Volume 43, Issue 4 , 2008 , Pages 974-980 ; 00189200 (ISSN) Medi, A ; Namgoong, W ; Sharif University of Technology
    A pulse-based ultra-wideband transceiver (UWB-IR) operating in the 3.25-4.75 GHz band designed for low power and high data rate communication is implemented in 0.18 μm CMOS technology. When operating at 1 Gbps data rate, it dissipates 98 mW (98 pJ/b) in the receive-mode and 108 mW (108 pJ/b) in the transmit-mode from a 1.8 V supply [1]. Compared to UWB transceivers reported in the literature, this chip dissipates the lowest energy per bit. In addition, the combination of the frequency channelized architecture, high-linearity RF circuits, aggressive baseband filtering, and low local oscillator spurs results in an interference-tolerant receiver that is able to co-exist with systems operating... 

    Asymptotically optimum detection of primary user in cognitive radio networks

    , Article IET Communications ; Volume 1, Issue 6 , December , 2007 , Pages 1138-1145 ; 17518628 (ISSN) Taherpour, A ; Norouzi, Y ; Nasiri Kenari, M ; Jamshidi, A ; Zeinalpour Yazdi, Z ; Sharif University of Technology
    Traditionally, the frequency spectrum is licensed to users by government agencies in a fixed manner where the licensee has exclusive right to access the allocated band. However, with increasing demand for the spectrum and scarcity of vacant bands, a spectrum policy reform seems inevitable. Meanwhile, recent measurements suggest the possibility of sharing spectrum among different parties subject to interference-protection constraints. In order to enable access to an unused licensed spectrum, a secondary user has to monitor licensed bands and opportunistically transmit whenever no primary signal is detected. Spectrum-sharing between a primary licensee and a group of secondary users has been... 

    Multiadaptive bionic wavelet transform: Application to ECG denoising and baseline wandering reduction

    , Article Eurasip Journal on Advances in Signal Processing ; Volume 2007 , 2007 ; 11108657 (ISSN) Sayadi, O ; Shamsollahi, M. B ; Sharif University of Technology
    We present a new modified wavelet transform, called the multiadaptive bionic wavelet transform (MABWT), that can be applied to ECG signals in order to remove noise from them under a wide range of variations for noise. By using the definition of bionic wavelet transform and adaptively determining both the center frequency of each scale together with the T-function, the problem of desired signal decomposition is solved. Applying a new proposed thresholding rule works successfully in denoising the ECG. Moreover by using the multiadaptation scheme, lowpass noisy interference effects on the baseline of ECG will be removed as a direct task. The method was extensively clinically tested with real... 

    Adaptive handover algorithm in heterogeneous femtocellular networks based on received signal strength and signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio prediction

    , Article IET Communications ; Volume 8, Issue 17 , 27 November , 2014 , Pages 3061-3071 ; ISSN: 17518628 Kalbkhani, H ; Yousefi, S ; Shayesteh, M. G ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this study, an efficient handover algorithm based on the received signal strength (RSS) prediction is presented for two-tier macro-femtocell networks in which, because of the fading effects of channel and short coverage range of femtocells, ping-pong handovers may take place. In the proposed approach, first each mobile station (MS) uses the recursive least square algorithm for predicting the RSS from the candidate base stations (BSs) including both femtocell and macrocell BSs. Then, according to the predicted RSS values, several future values of signal-to-interference plus noise ratio (SINR) are calculated. Afterwards, the candidate list of BSs is pruned according to the estimated future... 

    Distributed synchronization and beamforming in uplink relay asynchronous OFDMA CoMP networks

    , Article IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications ; Volume 14, Issue 6 , 2015 , Pages 3471-3480 ; 15361276 (ISSN) Pilaram, H ; Kiamari, M ; Khalaj, B. H ; Sharif University of Technology
    Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc  2015
    In this paper, we use delay-amplify-and-forward relays in the uplink direction of a coordinated multi-point network based on orthogonal frequency division multiplexing. The key novelty is that we assume delay from users to different base stations (BSs), in general, may exceed cyclic prefix (CP) length as might be the case in large cells and cannot be completely compensated by traditional timing advance strategies. Consequently, interchannel interference and intersymbol interference may arise under such assumptions. We first optimize the adjustable delays added at users, relays and BS nodes in order to reduce the effective delay spread at the receive sites, then we optimize relays' weights...

    The aim of this study is to improve the performance of two-tier macro/femtocell networks using a power control approach. In wireless networks, power control plays an important role in improving a number of performance parameters such as co-channel interference and outage probability reduction, throughput increasing, and power saving. This study explores the evolution of centralised power control algorithm based on femtocell base station (FBS) clustering and predicted signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) of users. To reduce the computational complexity of centralised algorithm, dense deployed femtocells are considered in different clusters. In this case, femtocells inside one... 

    Cognitive radar sequence design under the spectral compatibility requirements

    , Article IET Radar, Sonar and Navigation ; Volume 11, Issue 5 , 2017 , Pages 759-767 ; 17518784 (ISSN) Ge, P ; Cui, G ; Karbasi, S. M ; Kong, L ; Yang, J ; Sharif University of Technology
    As the increasing demands of military detection, wireless communication and remote sensing make the spectrum even more crowded, radar sequence design meeting spectral compatibility requirement is a challenging and urgent problem. This study is devoted to designing optimised phase-coded sequences which keep spectral-compatible with the overlaid electromagnetic radiators and at the same time optimise the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR). First, an intelligent dynamic spectrum information around the radar system is achieved by a radio environmental map. The information is introduced to form a constrained optimisation process aimed at improving the spectral compatibility and the...
