SQUEEZEDNEXT TERM STATES PRODUCED BY MODULATION INTERACTION AND PHASE CONJUGATION IN FIBERS

  • Mckinstrie C.

Number-state expansions are derived for the previous termsqueezednext term states produced by four-wave mixing (modulation interaction and phase conjugation) in fibers. These expansions are valid for arbitrary pump-induced coupling and dispersion- and pump-induced mismatch coefficients. To illustrate their use, formulas are derived for the associated field-quadrature and photon-number variances and ...

THE POSITRONIUM STATE IN QUARTZ

  • Platzman P.

The positronium state in quartz is described by a linear superposition of two states: the first describing the free positron in the crystal and the second corresponding to a positronium Bloch wavefunction in the lattice. The condition for positronium formation in the electron gas is deduced by using variational calculations ...

A SURVEY OF URBAN VEHICULAR SENSING PLATFORMS

  • Lee U.

Vehicular sensing where vehicles on the road continuously gather, process, and share location-relevant sensor data (e.g., road condition, traffic flow) is emerging as a new network paradigm for sensor information sharing in urban environments. Recently, smartphones have also received a lot of attention for their potential as portable vehicular urban ...

ON THE CONVEXITY OF NEWSVENDOR GAMES

  • Ozen U.

This study considers a simple newsvendor situation that consists of n retailers, all selling the same item with common purchasing costs and common selling prices. Groups of retailers might increase their expected joint profit by inventory centralization, which means that they make a joint order to satisfy total future demand. ...

CONSTRUCTION OF MAXIMUM RUN-LENGTH LIMITED CODES USING SEQUENCE REPLACEMENT TECHNIQUES

  • Immink K.
  • Van Vijngaarden A.J

The sequence replacement technique converts an input sequence into a constrained sequence in which a prescribed subsequence is forbidden to occur. Several coding algorithms are presented that use this technique for the construction of maximum run-length limited sequences. The proposed algorithms show how all forbidden subsequences can be successively or ...

Third generation (3G) wireless networks based on the CDMA2000 and UMTS standards are now increasingly being deployed throughout the world. Because of their complex signaling and relatively limited bandwidth, these 3G networks are generally more vulnerable than their wireline counterparts, thus making them fertile ground for new attacks. In this ...
