Unequal error protection of SPIHT encoded image bit streams

A derivative of the Set Partitioning into Hierarchical Trees (SPIHT) image coding method, which generates substreams with different error-resilience properties, is proposed. By dividing the image bit stream into three classes, substreams with different immunity properties are obtained. The unequal protection of these substreams with different channel coding rates improves the overall performance of the method against channel errors. Simulation results show the superiority of the proposed method over some of the state-of-the-art methods.

Incomplete-Leaf Multilevel Fast Multipole Algorithm for Multiscale Penetrable Objects Formulated With Volume Integral Equations
Takrimi, Manouchehr; Ergül, Özgür Salih; ERTÜRK, VAKUR BEHÇET (2017-09-01)
Recently introduced incomplete-leaf (IL) tree structures for multilevel fast multipole algorithm (referred to as IL-MLFMA) is proposed for the analysis of multiscale inhomogeneous penetrable objects, in which there are multiple orders of magnitude differences among the mesh sizes. Considering a maximum Schaubert-Wilton-Glisson function population threshold per box, only overcrowded boxes are recursively divided into proper smaller boxes, leading to IL tree structures consisting of variable box sizes. Such a...
Accurate equivalent models of sandwich laminates with honeycomb core and composite face sheets via optimization involving modal behavior
Cinar, Okan; Erdal Erdoğmuş, Merve; Kayran, Altan (2017-03-01)
An approach is introduced for determining accurate two-dimensional equivalent laminated models of sandwich laminates with honeycomb core and composite facesheets by optimization involving modal behavior. The approach relies on minimizing the objective function which is defined as the sum of the square of the differences between the natural frequencies of the honeycomb sandwich laminate estimated by the finite element analysis of the 3D detailed model with the actual honeycomb core geometry and by the 2D equ...
Unequal Error Protection: An Information-Theoretic Perspective
Borade, Shashi; Nakiboğlu, Barış; Zheng, Lizhong (2009-12-01)
An information-theoretic framework for unequal error protection is developed in terms of the exponential error bounds. The fundamental difference between the bit-wise and message-wise unequal error protection (UEP) is demonstrated, for fixed-length block codes on discrete memoryless channels (DMCs) without feedback. Effect of feedback is investigated via variable-length block codes. It is shown that, feedback results in a significant improvement in both bit-wise and message-wise UEPs (except the single mess...
Forward-backward domain decomposition method for finite element solution of electromagnetic boundary value problems
Ozgun, Ozlem; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Wiley, 2007-10-01)
We introduce the forward-backward domain decomposition method (FB-DDM), which is basically an improved version of the classical alternating Schwarz method with overlapping subdomains,for electromagnetic, boundary value problems. The proposed method is non-iterative in some cases involving smooth geometries, or it usually converges in a few iterations in other cases involving challenging geometries, via the utilization of the locally-conformal PML method. We report some numerical results for two- dimensional...
Multicenter perfectly matched layer implementation for finite element mesh truncation
Ozgun, Ozlem; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Wiley, 2007-04-01)
We present the multicenter perfectly matched layer (PML) technique, which is an easy and practical conformal PML implementation, obtained by the complex coordinate stretching, to the problem of mesh truncation in the finite element method. After developing the analytical background of this method. we demonstrate its performance in electromagnetic radiation/scattering problems. (c) 2007 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
