We consider a multi-user multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) setup where full-duplex (FD) multi-antenna nodes apply linear beamformers to simultaneously transmit and receive multiple streams over Rician fading channels. The exact first and second positive moments of the residual self-interference (SI), involving the squared norm of a sum of non-identically distributed random variables, are derived in closed-form. The method of moments is hence invoked to provide a Gamma approximation for the...

We present an observational study of the effect of bars on the gas component and on the star formation properties of their host galaxies in a statistically significant sample of resolved objects, the $Herschel$ Reference Sample. The analysis of optical and far--infrared images allows us to identify a clear spatial correlation between stellar bars and the cold-gas distribution mapped by the warm dust emission. We find that the infrared counterparts of optically identified bars are either...

Let $G$ be a connected Lie group. In this paper, we study the density of the images of individual power maps $P_k:G\to G:g\mapsto g^k$. We give criteria for the density of $P_k(G)$ in terms of regular elements, as well as Cartan subgroups. In fact, we prove that if ${\rm Reg}(G)$ is the set of regular elements of $G$, then $P_k(G)\cap {\rm Reg}(G)$ is closed in ${\rm Reg}(G)$. On the other hand, the weak exponentiality of $G$ turns out to be equivalent to the density of all the power maps...

The Sturm-Liouville operator on a star-shaped graph is considered. We assume that the potential is known a priori on all the edges except one, and study the partial inverse problem, which consists in recovering the potential on the remaining edge from the part of the spectrum. A constructive method is developed for the solution of this problem, based on the Riesz-basicity of some sequence of vector functions. The local solvability of the inverse problem and the stability of its solution are...

Quasi-cyclic (QC) low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes which are known as QC-LDPC codes, have many applications due to their simple encoding implementation by means of cyclic shift registers. In this paper, we construct QC-LDPC codes from group rings. A group ring is a free module (at the same time a ring) constructed in a natural way from any given ring and any given group. We present a structure based on the elements of a group ring for constructing QC-LDPC codes. Some of the previously...

Racah matrices and higher $j$-symbols are used in description of braiding properties of conformal blocks and in construction of knot polynomials. However, in complicated cases the logic is actually inverted: they are much better deduced from these applications than from the basic representation theory. Following the recent proposal of arXiv:1612.00422, we obtain the exclusive Racah matrix $\bar S$ for the currently-front-line case of representation $R=[3,1]$ with non-trivial multiplicities,...

Nonclassical beams in high order spatial modes have attracted much interest but they exhibit much less squeezing and entanglement than the fundamental spatial modes, limiting their applications. We experimentally demonstrate the relation between pump modes and entanglement of first-order HG modes (HG10 entangled states) in a type II OPO and show that the maximum entanglement of high order spatial modes can be obtained by optimizing the pump spatial mode. To our knowledge, this is the first time...

We study generic properties of strongly interacting matter at finite density as relevant to heavy-ion collisions at moderate beam energies or the physics of neutron stars and their mergers. Because of the fermion-sign problem in lattice QCD, here we simulate QCD-like theories without this problem at finite density. These theories (two-color QCD, G2-QCD, or adjoint QCD) typically contain bosonic baryons, for example diquarks, or other more exotic states of matter. It is therefore important to...

In this paper we present and implement the Palindromic Discontinuous Galerkin (PDG) method in dimensions higher than one. The method has already been exposed and tested in [4] in the one-dimensional context. The PDG method is a general implicit high order method for approximating systems of conservation laws. It relies on a kinetic interpretation of the conservation laws containing stiff relaxation terms. The kinetic system is approximated with an asymptotic-preserving high order DG method. We...

An essential quantity to ensure evolvability of populations is the navigability of the genotype space. Navigability relies on the existence of sufficiently large genotype networks, that is ensembles of sequences with the same phenotype that guarantee an efficient random drift through sequence space.

The paper proposes a surprisingly simple characterization of a large class of models of distributed computing, via an agreement function: for each set of processes, the function determines the best level of set consensus these processes can reach. We show that the task computability of a large class of fair adversaries that includes, in particular superset-closed and symmetric one, is precisely captured by agreement functions.

The 4-dimensional Sklyanin algebras are a well-studied 2-parameter family of non-commutative graded algebras, often denoted A(E,tau), that depend on a quartic elliptic curve E in P^3 and a translation automorphism tau of E. They are graded algebras generated by four degree-one elements subject to six quadratic relations and in many important ways they behave like the polynomial ring on four indeterminates apart from the minor difference that they are not commutative.

We study a diagrammatic categorification (the "anti-spherical category") of the anti-spherical module for any Coxeter group. We deduce that Deodhar's (sign) parabolic Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials have non-negative coefficients, and that a monotonicity conjecture of Brenti's holds. The main technical observation is a localisation procedure for the anti-spherical category, from which we construct a "light leaves" basis of morphisms. Our techniques may be used to calculate many...

To mitigate these problems, we have developed a method which allows the analyst to incorporate side...

In addition, by using the Euler-Rayleigh inequalities we obtain some tight lower and upper bounds for the radii of starlikeness and convexity of order zero for the normalized...

A hereditary class $\mathcal{G}$ of graphs is $\chi$-bounded if there is a $\chi$-binding function, say $f$ such that $\chi(G) \leq f(\omega(G))$, for every $G \in \cal{G}$, where $\chi(G)$ ($\omega(G)$) denote the chromatic (clique) number of $G$. It is known that for every $2K_2$-free graph $G$, $\chi(G) \leq \binom{\omega(G)+1}{2}$, and the class of ($2K_2, 3K_1$)-free graphs does not admit a linear $\chi$-binding function.

We embed compact $C^\infty$ manifolds into $\mathbb C^n$ as totally real manifolds with prescribed polynomial hulls. As a consequence we show that any compact $C^\infty$ manifold of dimension $d$ admits a totally real embedding into $\mathbb C^{\lfloor \frac{3d}{2}\rfloor}$ with non-trivial polynomial hull without complex structure.

Large-scale wireless testbeds have been setup in the last years with the goal to study wireless multi-hop networks in more realistic environments. Since the setup and operation of such a testbed is expensive in terms of money, time, and labor, the crucial question rises whether this effort is justified with the scientific results the testbed generates. In this paper, we give an answer to this question based on our experience with the DES-Testbed, a large-scale wireless sensor network and...

A decision feedback circuit with integrated offset compensation is presented in this paper. The circuit is built around the sense amplifier comparator. The feedback loop is closed around the first stage of the comparator resulting in minimum loop latency. The feedback loop is implemented using a switched capacitor network that picks from one of pre-computed voltages to be fed back. The comparator's offset that is to be compensated for, is added in the same path. Hence, an extra offset...

Start with a graph with a subset of vertices called {\it the border}. A particle released from the origin performs a random walk on the graph until it comes to the immediate neighbourhood of the border, at which point it joins this subset thus increasing the border by one point. Then a new particle is released from the origin and the process repeats until the origin becomes a part of the border itself. We are interested in the total number $\xi$ of particles to be released by this final moment....

This paper presents a new approach for the challenging problem of geo-locating an image using image matching in a structured database of city-wide reference images with known GPS coordinates. We cast the geo-localization as a clustering problem on local image features. Akin to existing approaches on the problem, our framework builds on low-level features which allow partial matching between images. For each local feature in the query image, we find its approximate nearest neighbors in the...

The purpose of this paper is to characterize graphs that do not have a large $K_{2,n}$-minor. As corollaries, it is proved that, for any given positive integer $n$, every sufficiently large 3-connected graph with minimum degree at least six, every 4-connected graph with a vertex of sufficiently high degree, and every sufficiently large 5-connected graph must have a $K_{2,n}$-minor.

A $k$-subcoloring of a graph is a partition of the vertex set into at most $k$ cluster graphs, that is, graphs with no induced $P_3$. 2-subcoloring is known to be NP-complete for comparability graphs and three subclasses of planar graphs, namely triangle-free planar graphs with maximum degree 4, planar perfect graphs with maximum degree 4, and planar graphs with girth 5. We show that 2-subcoloring is also NP-complete for planar comparability graphs with maximum degree 4.

We add new stanzas to the tale, about the ordeal to generate code with polymorphism and effects, and be sure it type-checks. Generating well-typed-by-construction polymorphic let-expressions is impossible in the Hindley-Milner type system: even the author believed that. The polymorphic-let generator turns out to exist. We present...

In this poster paper we present a data dissemination transmission abstraction for over the air programming (OAP) protocol which is fundamentally different from the previous hop by hop transmission protocols. Instead of imposing the greedy requirement that at least one node in the ith hop receives all packets before transmitting packets to the next hop and its neighbours, we take advantage of the spatial diversity and broadcast nature of wireless transmission to adopt a cooperative approach in...
