  • Benkner, Siegfried; Arbona, Antonio; Berti, Guntram; Chiarini, Alessandro; Dunlop, Robert; Engelbrecht, Gerhard; Frangi Caregnato, Alejandro; Friedrich, Christoph M.; Hanser, Susanne; Hasselmeyer, Peer; Hose, D. Rodney; Iavindrasana, Jimison; Köhler, Martin; Lo Iacono, Luigi; Lonsdale, Guy; Meyer, Rodolphe; Moore, Bob; Rajasekaran, Hariharan; Summers, Paul E.; Wöhrer, Alexander; Wood, Steven (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010)
    The increasing volume of data describing human disease processes and the growing complexity of understanding, managing, and sharing such data presents a huge challenge for clinicians and medical researchers. This paper ...
  • Theodoni, Panagiota; Kovacs, Gyula; Greenlee, Mark W.; Deco, Gustavo (Society for Neuroscience, 2011)
    Recently, there has been an increased interest on the neural mechanisms underlying perceptual decision making. However, the effect of neuronal adaptation in this context has not yet been studied. We begin our study by ...
  • Lozano Solsona, Àngel; Porrat, Dana (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011)
    In the context of fading channels it is well established that, with a constrained transmit power, the bit rates achievable by signals that are not peaky vanish as the bandwidth grows without bound. Stepping back from the ...
  • Cramer, Ronald; Daza, Vanesa; Gracia, Ignacio; Jiménez Urroz, Jorge; Leander, Gregor; Martí-Farré, Jaume; Padró, Carles (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008)
    Error-correcting codes and matroids have been widely used in the study of ordinary secret sharing schemes. In this paper, the connections between codes, matroids, and a special class of secret sharing schemes, namely, ...
  • Biglieri, Ezio; Hong, Yi; Viterbo, Emanuele (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009)
    We focus on full-rate, fast-decodable space–time block codes (STBCs) for 2 x 2 and 4 x 2 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmission. We first derive conditions and design criteria for reduced-complexity maximum-likelihood ...
  • Sezginer, Serdar; Sari, Hikmet; Biglieri, Ezio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009)
    The 2×2 MIMO profiles included in Mobile WiMAX specifications are Alamouti’s space-time code (STC) fortransmit diversity and spatial multiplexing (SM). The former has full diversity and the latter has full rate, but neither ...
  • Daza, Vanesa; Herranz, Javier; Sáez, Germán (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008)
    In a distributed key distribution scheme, a set of servers helps a set of users in a group to securely obtain a common key. Security means that an adversary who corrupts some servers and some users has no information about ...
  • Lozano Solsona, Àngel; Tulino, Antonia M.; Verdú, Sergio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008)
    This paper formulates power allocation policies that maximize the region of mutual informations achievable in multiuser downlink OFDM channels. Arbitrary partitioning of the available tones among users and arbitrary ...
  • Lozano Solsona, Àngel; Tulino, Antonia M.; Verdú, Sergio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2006)
    The mutual information of independent parallel Gaussian-noise channels is maximized, under an average power constraint, by independent Gaussian inputs whose power is allocated according to the waterfilling policy. In ...
  • Masquelier, Timothée; Hugues, Etienne; Deco, Gustavo; Thorpe, Simon J. (Society for Neuroscience, 2009)
    Recent experiments have established that information can be encoded in the spike times of neurons relative to the phase of a background oscillation in the local field potential—a phenomenon referred to as “phase-of-firing ...
  • Morales-Jiménez, David; Paris, José F.; Lozano Solsona, Àngel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012)
    Exact closed-form expressions are obtained for the outage probability of maximal ratio combining in η-μ fading channels with antenna correlation and co-channel interference. The scenario considered in this work assumes ...
  • Geers, Arjan; Larrabide, Ignacio; Radaelli, Alessandro Guido; Bogunovic, Hrvoje; Kim, Minsuok; Gratama van Andel, Hugo A. F.; Majoie, Charles B. L. M.; VanBavel, E; Frangi Caregnato, Alejandro (American Society of Neuroradiology, 2011)
    Patient-specific simulations of the hemodynamics in intracranial aneurysms can be constructed by using image-based vascular models and CFD techniques. This work evaluates the impact of the choice of imaging technique on ...
  • Lozano Solsona, Àngel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010)
    In a MIMO layered architecture, several codewords are transmitted from a multiplicity of antennas. Although the spectral efficiency is maximized if the rates of these codewords are separately controlled, the feedback ...
  • Serrà Julià, Joan; Kantz, Holger; Serra, Xavier; Andrzejak, Ralph Gregor (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011)
    Intuitively, music has both predictable and unpredictable components. In this work we assess this qualitative statement in a quantitative way using common time series models fitted to state-of-the-art music descriptors. ...
  • Girardin, Fabien; Vaccari, Andrea; Gerber, Alexander; Biderman, Assaf; Ratti, Carlo (Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, 2009)
    In the past, sensors networks in cities have been limited to fixed sensors, embedded in particular locations, under centralised control. Today, new applications can leverage wireless devices and use them as sensors to ...
  • Santos Rodríguez, Patrícia; Pérez Sanagustín, Maria del Mar; Hernández Leo, Davinia; Blat, Josep (Elsevier, 2011)
    Test-based assessment tools are mostly focused on the use of computers. However, advanced Information and Communication Technologies, such as handheld devices, opens up the possibilities of creating new assessment scenarios, ...
  • Sadat Schaffai, Jasmin, 1982-; Martin, Clara D.; Costa Martínez, Albert, 1970-; Alario, F.-Xavier (François -Xavier), (Elsevier, 2014)
    A crucial step for understanding how lexical knowledge is represented is to describe the relative similarity of lexical items, and how it influences language processing. Previous studies of the effects of form similarity ...
  • Chicharro Raventós, Daniel; Andrzejak, Ralph Gregor (American Physical Society, 2009)
    To detect directional couplings from time series various measures based on distances in reconstructed state spaces were introduced. These measures can, however, be biased by asymmetries in the dynamics' structure, noise ...
