Adaptive Step-size Iterative Algorithm for Sparse Signal Recovery

  • Yuan X.

We develop the variational Bayesian plus Euclidean projection (VB-EP) algorithm for sparse signal recovery from compressed measurements. This algorithm is formulated as an iteratively alternating projection strategy. The first step projects the measurements/residuals to the signal level, which is implemented via a Bayesian model; the second step projects the results obtained in the first step to the ell_1-ball to impose sparsity. These two steps are performed iteratively until some criterion is satisfied. The algorithm can infer the step size with variational Bayesian approach in each iteration. We further derive a maximum likelihood estimator of the Bayesian model to speed up the inference with fixed step size. Simulation results verify the superior performance of the proposed algorithm.

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • 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 ...
