Moment generating function-based performance evaluation of amplify-andforward relaying in N∗Nakagami fading channels
In this study, the authors investigate the error rate performance of amplify-and-forward relaying over N∗Nakagami fading channels. This is a recently introduced channel model that involves the product of N Nakagami-m-distributed ...
Search for vector-like T and B quark pairs in final states with leptons at s√=13 TeV
(Springer Nature, 2018-08)
A search is presented for pair production of heavy vector-like T and B quarks in proton-proton collisions at s=13 TeV. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb −1 , collected with the CMS detector ...
Constraining gluon distributions in nuclei using dijets in proton-proton and proton-lead collisions at √sNN = 5.02 TeV
(American Physical Society, 2018-08-07)
The pseudorapidity distributions of dijets as functions of their average transverse momentum (p(T)(ave)) are measured in proton-lead (pPb) and proton-proton (pp) collisions. The data samples were collected by the CMS ...
Improvement of design of a surgical interface using an eye tracking device
(Springer Science+Business Media, 2014-05)
Surgical interfaces are used for helping surgeons in interpretation and quantification of the patient information, and for the presentation of an integrated workflow where all available data are combined to enable optimal ...
Unified resource allocation and mobility management technique using particle swarm optimization for VLC networks
In this paper, we present a unified resource allocation and mobility management algorithm based on particle swarm optimization (PSO) for indoor visible light communication (VLC) networks. We consider a VLC network where ...
The conceptual difference really matters: Hofstede vs GLOBE’s uncertainty avoidance and the risk-taking behavior of firms
(Emerald Publishing Limited, 2019-12-05)
Purpose In spite of the common label, uncertainty avoidance (UA) across Hofstede and GLOBE models has been found to be negatively correlated and capture distinct concepts. Nevertheless, the empirical research focusing on ...
Conceptual design of a fully passive transfemoral prosthesis to facilitate energy-efficient gait
In this paper, we present the working principle and conceptual design toward the realization of a fully-passive transfemoral prosthesis that mimics the energetics of the natural human gait. The fundamental property of the ...
How cost of capital is changing: The effect of accounting information
The main objective of this paper is to explore the effects of information on the costs of capital. The study will offer insights on how firms can make use of information to manipulate the costs of capital to achieve the ...
Becoming protestant: Greek Orthodox responses to conversion in 19th-century Ottoman Anatolia
(Koç Üniversitesi Suna & İnan Kıraç Akdeniz Medeniyetleri Araştırma Merkezi (AKMED), 2018)
During the nineteenth century, through American missionaries’ efforts, some, albeit a small portion, of the Greek Orthodox subjects of the Ottoman sultan adopted Protestantism. This article explores various incidents of ...
