Turbo-like Codes Over Block-Fading and Time-Varying Narrowband Fading Channels

Yapici, Yavuz
Yılmaz, Ali Özgür
Our main goal in this paper is to construct codes that can perform close to information-theoretic limits in time-varying channels. For this purpose, a new turbo-like code is first proposed for the block-fading channel which achieves the same error performance of a recently introduced blockwise concatenated code but with a lower complexity. The effectiveness of the codes are verified by comparing them with information-outage probability. In order to take the advantage of time diversity in time-varying fading channels, we introduce two new codes which are indeed extensions of the ones for block-fading channels. We report that error performance of the proposed codes is close to information-theoretic limits in time-varying channels set out by information-outage probability.

Frequency estimation of a single real-valued sinusoid: An invariant function approach
Candan, Çağatay; Çelebi, Utku (2021-08-01)
An invariant function approach for the computationally efficient (non-iterative and gridless) maximum likelihood (ML) estimation of unknown parameters is applied on the real-valued sinusoid frequency estimation problem. The main attraction point of the approach is its potential to yield a ML-like performance at a significantly reduced computational load with respect to conventional ML estimator that requires repeated evaluation of an objective function or numerical search routines. The numerical results ind...
Multi-objective decision making using fuzzy discrete event systems: A mobile robot example
Boutalis, Yiannis; Schmidt, Klaus Verner (2010-09-29)
In this paper, we propose an approach for the multi-objective control of sampled data systems that can be modeled as fuzzy discrete event systems (FDES). In our work, the choice of a fuzzy system representation is justified by the assumption of a controller realization that depends on various potentially imprecise sensor measurements. Our approach consists of three basic steps that are performed in each sampling instant. First, the current fuzzy state of the system is determined by a sensor evaluation. Seco...
Dual sided high frequency measurement of microelectronic packages
Christ, Sean R.; Durgun, Ahmet Cemal; Aygun, Kemal; Hill, Michael J. (2020-10-01)
© 2020 IEEE.Traditionally, validation of simulation data of microelectronic packages has been done by high frequency measurement of coplanar transmission line structures. Although this metrology has matured over the years, it is not directly applicable to product packages since they also include vertical interconnects. To address this issue, we developed a dual-sided measurement metrology, by utilizing a special fixture design and employing short-open-load-reciprocal calibration to maintain measurement stab...
Domain-Structured Chaos in a Hopfield Neural Network
Akhmet, Marat (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2019-12-30)
In this paper, we provide a new method for constructing chaotic Hopfield neural networks. Our approach is based on structuring the domain to form a special set through the discrete evolution of the network state variables. In the chaotic regime, the formed set is invariant under the system governing the dynamics of the neural network. The approach can be viewed as an extension of the unimodality technique for one-dimensional map, thereby generating chaos from higher-dimensional systems. We show that the dis...
Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for Convection Diffusion Equations with Random Coefficients
Çiloğlu, Pelin; Yücel, Hamdullah (null; 2019-09-11)
Partial differential equations (PDEs) with random input data is one of the most powerful tools to model oil and gas production as well as groundwater pollution control. However, the information available on the input data is very limited, which causes high level of uncertainty in approximating the solution to these problems. To identify the random coefficients, the well–known technique Karhunen Loéve (K–L) expansion has some limitations. K–L expansion approach leads to extremely high dimensional system...
