    Wavelet Packet Transform Modulation for Multiple Input Multiple Output Applications

    An investigation into the Wavelet Packet Transform (WPT) modulation scheme for Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) band-limited systems is presented. The implementation involves using the WPT as the base multiplexing technology at baseband, instead of the traditional Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) common in Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) systems. An...

    Full Data Controlled Web-Based Feed Aggregator

    Feed syndication is analogous to electronic newsletters, both are aimed at delivering feeds to subscribers; the difference is that while newsletter subscription requires e-mail and exposed you to spam and security challenges, feed syndication ensures that you only get what you requested for.

    Learning Performance and Adaptive Hypermedia Learning Systems: Prior Knowledge Vs. Cognitive Styles

    In the past decade, a number of adaptive hypermedia learning systems have been developed. However, most of the systems tailored presentation content and navigational support basing on prior knowledge or cognitive styles of students separately. There is a need to, however, explore how the two individual difference characteristics could be...

    Analytical Modelling of the GC-Based Handover Scheme with Heavy-Tailed Call Holding Times

    The Guard Channel (GC) scheme is an extensively deployed handover prioritization policy in wireless mobile networks due to its appealing properties of easy implementation and flexible control. Self-similar traffic has been demonstrated to be a ubiquitous phenomenon in modern communication networks and many measurement studies have demonstrated that the call...

    Performance Modelling and Analysis of Interconnection Networks with Spatio-Temporal Bursty Traffic

    The k-ary n-cube which has an n-dimensional grid structure with k nodes in each dimension has been a popular topology for interconnection networks. Analytical models for kary n-cubes have been widely reported under the assumptions that the message destinations are uniformly distributed over all network nodes and the message arrivals...

    Email Threads: A Comparative Evaluation of Textual, Graphical and Multimodal Approaches

    Email threads were implemented by enormous number of studies in order to improve the efficiency of email clients. Nevertheless, contextual information about messages in the threads was somewhat neglected by most of these studies. This paper describes an empirical study carried out to investigate into how extent can such information...
