Quadratic Signaling Games with Channel Combining Ratio

In this study, Nash and Stackelberg equilibria of single-stage and multi-stage quadratic signaling games between an encoder and a decoder are investigated. In the considered setup, the objective functions of the encoder and the decoder are misaligned, there is a noisy channel between the encoder and the decoder, the encoder has a soft power constraint, and the decoder has also noisy observation of the source to be estimated. We show that there exist only linear encoding and decoding strategies at the Stackelberg equilibrium, and derive the equilibrium strategies and costs. Regarding the Nash equilibrium, we explicitly characterize affine equilibria for the single-stage setup and show that the optimal encoder (resp. decoder) is affine for an affine decoder (resp. encoder) for the multi-stage setup. On the decoder side, between the information coming from the encoder and noisy observation of the source, our results describe what should be the combining ratio of these two channels. Regarding the encoder, we derive the conditions under which it is meaningful to transmit a message.

Quadratic Multi-Dimensional Signaling Games and Affine Equilibria
Sarıtaş, Serkan; Gezici, Sinan (2017-02-01)
This paper studies the decentralized quadratic cheap talk and signaling game problems when an encoder and a decoder, viewed as two decision makers, have misaligned objective functions. The main contributions of this study are the extension of Crawford and Sobel's cheap talk formulation to multi-dimensional sources and to noisy channel setups. We consider both (simultaneous) Nash equilibria and (sequential) Stackelberg equilibria. We show that for arbitrary scalar sources, in the presence of misalignment, th...
Triple stub circuit topology as simultaneous insertion phase, amplitude and impedance control circuit for phased array applications
Unlu, M.; Demir, Şimşek; Akın, Tayfun (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2012-10-23)
This study shows that the well-known triple stub circuit topology can also be used for controlling the insertion phase and amplitude of a given signal simultaneously, as well as preserving its impedance transformation ability. The triple stub circuit topology, which is nothing but an extension of the conventional double stub loaded-line phase shifter, results in one more degree of freedom to its solution when it is solved for its insertion phase. This additional degree of freedom not only brings the impedan...
Three dimensional frame element formulation for nonlinear analysis of semi rigid steel structures
Özel, Halil Fırat; Sarıtaş, Afşin; Karakaş, Zafer (null; 2016-09-21)
In this paper, a force-based three-dimensional frame finite element formulation with spread of inelasticity through the element and localized nonlinear semi-rigid connections is developed. The proposed model utilizes Euler-Bernoulli beam theory assumptions, and adopts fiber discretization of monitored sections along element length and section depth for the spread of inelasticity in order to capture axial force and biaxial bending moment interaction. Defining any type of semi-rigid either linear or nonlinear...
Direct numerical simulation of pipe flow using a solenoidal spectral method
Tugluk, Ozan; Tarman, Işık Hakan (2012-05-01)
In this study, a numerical method based on solenoidal basis functions, for the simulation of incompressible flow through a circular-cylindrical pipe, is presented. The solenoidal bases utilized in the study are formulated using the Legendre polynomials. Legendre polynomials are favorable, both for the form of the basis functions and for the inner product integrals arising from the Galerkin-type projection used. The projection is performed onto the dual solenoidal bases, eliminating the pressure variable, si...
Camera trajectory estimation for indoor robot odometry using stereo images and inertial measurements
Horasan, Anıl; Aksel, Mehmet Haluk; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2016)
In this study, the development and implementation of an algorithm for stereo visual-inertial odometry are described. The study spans the complete process from analyzing the sensory data to the development of a robot odometry algorithm. The criteria for indoor visual-inertial odometry include using low-cost sensor systems, having an error less than five percent of the movement regardless of the distance covered, and building a robust algorithm in the presence of geometric and photometric invariances as well ...
