Interference Cancellation in Co-working WLANs

Capacity of cellular networks, such as 3G CDMA, B3G HSPA and LTE, are interference-limited. This means that the maximum number of users in each cell and overall system capacity main more...

Link between ATP supply and consumption in the maintenance of the shape of the red blood cell in normal and disease states

The link between the main energy supply (ATP from glycolysis) and its consumption by the cytoskeleton will be studied by using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, compute more...
