    Enhanced Public Key Security for the McEliece Cryptosystem

    This paper studies a variant of the McEliece cryptosystem able to ensure that the code used as the public key is no longer permutationequivalent to the secret code. This increases the security level of the public key, thus opening the way for reconsidering the adoption of classical families of codes,...

    Availability of Wireless Fading Channel Under Outage State With Tolerance Time

    Analytical models are often developed to characterize probabilistic behavior of wireless channels using Finite State Markov (FSM) model approach. The paper presents Outage Tolerant FSM (OTFSM) channel model based on maximum acceptable 'Tolerance time'. These are the short outage times, a wireless channel can tolerate without compromising telecommunication system quality...

    A Performance Analysis of Energy Efficient Routing in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

    A mobile ad hoc network is characterized by constraints such as limited bandwidth, energy constraints, less memory and processing capabilities. Also MANET's are required to be deployed under scalable conditions for some applications. A routing protocol is a central to the design of such networks. In this paper, the authors...

    Position Based Routing for Wireless Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

    In mobile ad hoc network there are several routing algorithms, which utilize topology information to make routing decisions at each node. Aim of this paper is to utilize position information to provide more reliable as well as efficient routing for certain applications. Thus extensions to existing position based routing algorithm...

    Investigating Business Cycle Synchronization In West Africa

    This paper contributes to the discussion on the long term sustainability of the embryonic second monetary union in Africa, the West African Monetary Zone (WAMZ). The authors analyse the level of economic and monetary integration in West Africa by analysing the degree of growth cycle synchronisation between five candidate countries...

    WTO Regulations And Bioenergy Sustainability Certification - Synergies And Possible Conflicts

    Biofuels are increasingly being produced and consumed as a partial substitute to fossil-fuel based transport fuels in the fight against climate change. One policy introduced recently by some countries to help ensure biofuels perform better than fossil fuels environmentally is sustainability criteria. These, typically, require lower greenhouse gas emissions than...

    From Property Companies To Real Estate Investment Trusts: The Impact Of Economic And Property Factors In The UK Commercial Property Returns

    This paper investigates cross-sectionally the impact of economic and property factors on the returns of UK property companies and real estate investment trusts. By applying structural time-series modelling and the Kalman Filter to obtain unexpected changes or innovations in selected economic and property variables it was found for the sample...

    Inflation Persistence And Asymmetries: Evidence For African Countries

    In this paper the authors aim at testing the inflation persistence hypothesis as well as modelling (using logistic smooth transition autoregressive, LSTAR, models) the long run behaviour of inflation rates in a pool of African countries. In order to do so, they rely on unit root tests applied to nonlinear...

    Inflation Persistence In The Franc Zone: Evidence From Disaggregated Prices

    In sub-Saharan Africa, where inflation persistence is likely to have deleterious welfare consequences, little attempt has been made to study this phenomenon. Using data over 1989:11-2002:09, this paper investigates persistence in disaggregated (food and non-food) inflation for thirteen Communaute Financiere Africaine (CFA) member states using Fractional Integration (FI) methods. The...
