We consider a problem of localizing the destination of an activated path signal supported on a graph. An “activated path signal” is a graph signal that evolves over time that can be viewed as the trajectory of a moving agent. We show that by combining dynamic programming and graph partitioning, the computational complexity of destination localization can be significantly reduced. Then, we show that the destination localization error can be upper-bounded using methods based on large-deviation. Using simulation results, we show a tradeoff between the destination localization error and the computation time. We compare the dynamic programming algorithm with and without graph partitioning and show that the computation time can be significantly reduced by using graph partitioning. The proposed technique can scale to the problem of destination localization on a graph with one million nodes and one thousand time slots.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream G.fast Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as G.fast, employing discrete multi-tone transmission in high frequencies up to 212 MHz, the crosstalk among lines reaches very high levels. To precompensate the crosstalk in downstream transmission, QRD-based precoding has been proposed as a near-optimal dynamic spectrum management (DSM) technique. However, the performance ...

Practical Mitigation of Passive Intermodulation in Microstrip Circuits

This paper presents new experimental evidence and a novel practical approach for mitigation of passive intermodulation (PIM) in microstrip circuits fabricated on commercial printed circuit board laminates. The mechanisms of distributed PIM in microstrip circuits are reviewed and a phenomenology of PIM generation due to locally enhanced electromagnetic fields at ...

Efficient Cooperative HARQ for Multi-Source Multi-Relay Wireless Networks

In this paper, we compare the performance of three different cooperative Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) protocols for slow-fading half-duplex orthogonal multiple access multiple relay channel. Channel State Information (CSI) is available at the receiving side of each link only. Time Division Multiplexing is assumed, where each orthogonal transmission occurs ...
