In this work, improvements on propagation prediction models based on ray tracing in coverage estimation for digital broadcasting systems are presented. For this purpose, firstly propagation models based on Geometrical Theory of Diffraction (GTD) are discussed, and then an improved model is proposed for prediction of propagation path loss or electric field strength at the receiver. The proposed model incorporates first order expansion of classical GTD in field computation and convex hull for ray tracing. Simulation results are presented for comparison of various models in terms of computation time and accuracy.

An Analysis for the Correlation of Coverage and Spatial Resolution for Wireless Sensor Networks
Tomur, Emrah; Erten, Y. Murat (2007-12-10)
In this study, we investigate the interactions between coverage and spatial resolution for cluster-based wireless sensor networks (WSN). We present an approximate probabilistic analysis for the mentioned correlation and verify this analysis by simulation. Our analysis includes the k-coverage case.
AN ANALYSIS TO IMPROVE STABILITY OF DRIVE-MODE OSCILLATIONS IN CAPACITIVE VIBRATORY MEMS GYROSCOPES
Alper, S. E.; Sahin, K.; Akın, Tayfun (2009-01-29)
This paper presents an analysis showing that it is possible to determine the factors that limit the stability of drive-mode oscillations of a vibratory MEMS gyroscope with precise modeling. Specifically, unwanted electrical resonance characteristics of the gyroscope drive-mode are analyzed together with analytical expressions, whereas the results of the theoretical analyses are verified both by simulations and measurements, which agree very well. It is demonstrated that the stability of the drive-mode oscil...
