Stochastic geometry analysis of IEEE 802.15.6 UWB WBAN performance with game theoretical power management

Balevi, Eren

© 2018 IEEE.Inter-network interference in ultra-wideband (UWB) wireless body area networks (WBANs) is analyzed using stochastic geometry with the objective of quantifying the inherent interference tolerance of UWB WBANs in terms of the bit error probability. Such networks are expected to be common in the IoT segment of 5G networks and our methodology may be extended to other network configurations. Our results show that the amount of interference that can be tolerated depends on the node density of a Poisson point process and the transmission power. Moreover, decreasing the number of pulses per burst while transmitting a bit may increase the interference tolerance. On the other hand, UWB WBANs cannot tolerate significant amounts of interference in networks of ultra-densely deployed nodes. In these situations, there will be a significant amount of inter-network interference, and it is essential to adjust the power levels of all the nodes. With this objective, the transmission power of all nodes is decreased and their levels are determined by using a game theoretical approach; specifically with a non-cooperative continuous-kernel game. These optimized power levels not only reduce interference but also enhance the energy efficiency, which is of critical importance for WBANs.

Dynamic signaling games with quadratic criteria under Nash and Stackelberg equilibria
Yuksel, Serdar; Sarıtaş, Serkan; Gezici, Sinan (2020-05-01)
This paper considers dynamic (multi-stage) signaling games involving an encoder and a decoder who have subjective models on the cost functions. We consider both Nash (simultaneous-move) and Stackelberg (leader-follower) equilibria of dynamic signaling games under quadratic criteria. For the multi-stage scalar cheap talk, we show that the final stage equilibrium is always quantized and under further conditions the equilibria for all time stages must be quantized. In contrast, the Stackelberg equilibria are a...
Upper bounds to error probability with feedback
Nakiboğlu, Barış (2010-01-22)
A new analysis technique is suggested for bounding the error probability of fixed length block codes with feedback on discrete memoryless channels from above. Error analysis is inspired by Gal lager's error analysis for block codes without feedback. Using Burnashev-Zigangirov-D'yachkov encoding scheme analysis recovers previously known best results on binary symmetric channels and improves up on the previously known best results on k-ary symmetric channels and binary input channels.
Hilbert functions of gorenstein monomial curves
Topaloğlu Mete, Pınar; Arslan, Sefa Feza; Department of Mathematics (2005)
The aim of this thesis is to study the Hilbert function of a one-dimensional Gorenstein local ring of embedding dimension four in the case of monomial curves. We show that the Hilbert function is non-decreasing for some families of Gorenstein monomial curves in affine 4-space. In order to prove this result, under some arithmetic assumptions on generators of the defining ideal, we determine the minimal generators of their tangent cones by using the standard basis and check the Cohen-Macaulayness of them. Lat...
Direction finding with a circularly rotated antenna
Koc, AT; Sen, E; Tanik, Y (2000-06-09)
In this work, a new algorithm for multiple emitter direction finding by using a single antenna moving along a circular trajectory is proposed. The problem is formulated by taking the Doppler frequency shift, caused by the movement of the antenna. into account, and by assuming that the information, hidden in the incoming signals, does not change in the observation duration. The proposed direction finding algorithm is, therefore, based on single snapshot processing and also on the linear prediction method dev...
Covariance Matrix Estimation of Texture Correlated Compound-Gaussian Vectors for Adaptive Radar Detection
Candan, Çağatay; Pascal, Frederic (2022-01-01)
Covariance matrix estimation of compound-Gaussian vectors with texture-correlation (spatial correlation for the adaptive radar detectors) is examined. The texture parameters are treated as hidden random parameters whose statistical description is given by a Markov chain. States of the chain represent the value of texture coefficient and the transition probabilities establish the correlation in the texture sequence. An Expectation-Maximization (EM) method based covariance matrix estimation solution is given ...
