Optimal Utility-based Congestion Control in Multihop Wireless Networks

Optimal Utility-based Congestion Control in Multihop Wireless Networks

Author: Weiqiang Xu, Jiming Chen Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 17/05/2020

This brief focuses on the state-of-the-art research for congestion control in Multihop Wireless Networks (MWN), based on the Network Utility Maximization (NUM) framework. The brief evaluates fundamental theories, useful performance investigations, and open issues. Multihop Wireless Networks (MWN), including Ad Hoc networks, Wireless sensor networks, and Wireless Mesh networks, play the essential role in the evolution of pervasive computing. MWN represent complex distributed systems which comprise wireless mobile nodes that can freely and dynamically self-organize into arbitrary and temporary network topology, allowing nodes to seamlessly internetwork in areas with no pre-existing communication infrastructure. Optimal Utility-based Congestion Control in Multihop Wireless Networks explores how MWN provide a categorization of applicative scenarios outside of the military domain, such as emergency services, disaster recovery, and environment monitoring.

Digital Signal Processing:A Primer with MATLAB (R) provides excellent coverage of discrete-time signals and systems. At the beginning of each chapter, an abstract states the chapter objectives. All principles are also presented in a lucid, logical, step-by-step approach. As much as possible, the authors avoid wordiness and detail overload that could hide concepts and impede understanding. In recognition of requirements by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) on integrating computer tools, the use of MATLAB (R) is encouraged in a student-friendly manner. MATLAB is introduced in Appendix C and applied gradually throughout the book. Each illustrative example is immediately followed by practice problems along with its answer. Students can follow the example step-by-step to solve the practice problems without flipping pages or looking at the end of the book for answers. These practice problems test students' comprehension and reinforce key concepts before moving onto the next section. Toward the end of each chapter, the authors discuss some application aspects of the concepts covered in the chapter. The material covered in the chapter is applied to at least one or two practical problems. It helps students see how the concepts are used in real-life situations. Also, thoroughly worked examples are given liberally at the end of every section. These examples give students a solid grasp of the solutions as well as the confidence to solve similar problems themselves. Some of hte problems are solved in two or three ways to facilitate a deeper understanding and comparison of different approaches. Designed for a three-hour semester course, Digital Signal Processing:A Primer with MATLAB (R) is intended as a textbook for a senior-level undergraduate student in electrical and computer engineering. The prerequisites for a course based on this book are knowledge of standard mathematics, including calculus and complex numbers.

Design and Optimization of Sensors and Antennas for Wearable Devices

Author: Vinod Kumar Singh Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/01/2020

Wearable continuous monitoring systems are necessary in risky environments such as mining and diving and are especially important in the medical monitoring of patients both in medical facilities and at home. All these applications of monitoring with data transmission functions can be achieved by using wearable antennas. Recently, possibilities of connecting completely independent appliances with textiles have emerged. However, full success will be achieved only when antennas and all related components are entirely converted into 100% textile materials. Design and Optimization of Sensors and Antennas for Wearable Devices provides innovative insights on the development of adaptable materials and textile antennas that can be used in the construction of wearable devices that are biocompatible and offer high conductivity, low cost, simplistic manufacturing, are comfortable for the wearer, and are water/climate safe and condition amicable. The content within this publication examines data transmission, wearable computing, and medical applications. It is designed for engineers, manufacturers, researchers, academicians, and scientists who are interested in the development of wearable technologies.
