Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Contrary to single-session network coding which is well understood in both theory and practice, the general problem of multi-session wireless network coding is still a challenge. In this paper, we extend our single-session Network spread coding scheme (NSC) to the more general multi-session NSC (MS-NSC) scheme. In contrast to straightforward NC, MSNSC uses the linearly independent complete complementary (CC) sequences as encoding vectors that facilitate communication over wireless channel suffering from fading, interference and noise. As opposed to classical NC, MS-NSC requires no intermediate encoding nodes (due to the physical characteristic of the channel). Results obtained under AWGN and flat fading channels demonstrate only minimal performance loss in the multi-session scenario compared to that in the single-session for the two proposed MS-NSC operating modes.
