This paper analyzes the average behavior of video streaming systems with adaptation to network bandwidth and player sizes. The main results are formulae for average system performance parameters for given models of codecs, content, players, and networks. Derived expressions are used to study performance limits achievable by adaptive streaming systems, and pose several related optimization problems. Numerical simulations, illustrating the usefulness of the proposed formulae and techniques are also provided


A beam-free approach to channel allocation in a multi-beam
four-color satellite coverage area is taken. Non-Orthogonal
Multiple Access (NOMA) and Orthogonal Multiple Access
(OMA) are compared as methods to serve users nonnecessarily
located on the reference beam. A proportional
fairness policy is employed for the user scheduling. The
naturally occurring SNR imbalances in the user terminal population
are exploited in such a way that NOMA outperforms
OMA, partly due to the blurring of the boundaries of the


The availability and quality of channel state information heavily influences the performance of wireless communication systems. For perfect channel knowledge, optimal signal processing and coding schemes are well studied and often closed-form solutions are known. On the other hand, the case of imperfect channel information is much less understood and closed-form solutions remain unknown in general.


In this paper, we consider the rate-distortion problem where a source X is encoded into k parallel descriptions Y1, . . . , Yk, such that the error signals X - Yi, i = 1, . . . , k, are mutually independent given X. We show that if X is one-sided exponentially distributed, the optimal decoder (estimator) under the one-sided absolute error criterion, is simply given by the maximum of the outputs Y1, . . . , Yk. We provide a closed-form expression for the rate and distortion for any k number of parallel descriptions and for any coding rate.


When modelling the stable baseline component of a riometer voltage series, the degradation of statistical performance can be significant if either the data are noisy or the underlying stochastic process is highly nonstationary. It is desirable to explore models which balance the high degree of stability of a quiet-day curve with low computation time. This paper introduces a multitaper method for generating quiet-day curves. A novel metric is introduced for determining the overlap fraction in a section-overlap model of the stable baseline component.


In this paper, we propose an optimized polarization filtering based digital self-interference (SI) cancellation (OPC) scheme for full-duplex communication. The proposed OPC scheme utilizes polarization to increase the distinction between the desired signal and the SI and maximizes the signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR) of the output signal.


The 3GPP is investigating the concept of integrated access and backhaul (IAB) to provide high capacity wireless backhaul for 5G network. In this paper, we present an analysis of ergodic capacity for full-duplex IAB system, where full-duplex is introduced to further improve the ergodic capacity. Two kinds of interference are considered: the backward interference between two adjacent base stations and the residual self-interference introduced by full-duplex.


Power delay profiles (PDPs) are an important factor in the design of wireless networks, e.g., in choosing the length of a cyclic prefix. While distributed networks are receiving increasing attention, the impact of cooperation on the PDP has not been addressed. We address this issue in this paper. Specifically, we analyze a network where each user is served by a cluster of Remote Radio Heads (RRHs) with RRH locations modeled as a Poisson point process.
