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.

  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
