On the Exact Distribution of Mutual Information of Two-User MIMO MAC Based on Quotient Distribution of Wishart Matrices

We propose an exact calculation of the probability density function (PDF) and cumulative distribution function (CDF) of mutual information (MI) for a two-user multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) multiple access channel (MAC) network over block Rayleigh fading channels. This scenario can be found in the uplink channel of MIMO non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) system, a ...

Antibacterial effects of Lactobacillus isolates of curd and human milk origin against food-borne and human pathogens

This study was undertaken to assess the antibacterial efficacy of lactobacilli isolated from curd and human milk samples. Identities of thirty-one different lactobacilli (20 from curd and 11 from human milk) were confirmed by genus-specific PCR and 16S rRNA-based sequencing. These strains belonged to five species, Lactobacillus casei, L. delbrueckii, L. fermentum, L. plantarum, and ...

Modeling of all-optical even and odd parity generator circuits using metal-insulator-metal plasmonic waveguides

Plasmonic metal-insulator-metal (MIM) waveguides sustain excellent property of confining the surface plasmons up to a deep subwavelength scale. In this paper, linear and S-shaped MIM waveguides are cascaded together to design the model of Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI). Nonlinear material has been used for switching of light across its output ports. The structures of even and ...

Hydrological simulation of a small ungauged agricultural watershed Semrakalwana of Northern India

A study was conducted to develop a hydrological model for agriculture dominated Semra watershed (4.31 km2) and Semrakalwana village at Allahabad using a semi distributed Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model. In model evaluation it was found that the SWAT does not require much calibration, and therefore, can be employed in unguaged watershed. A seasonal (Kharif, Rabi and Zaid ...

Little Higgs after the little one

At the LHC, the Littlest Higgs Model with T-parity is characterised by various production channels. If the T-odd quarks are heavier than the exotic partners of the W and the Z, then associated production can be as important as the pair-production of the former. Studying both, we look for final states comprising at least one lepton, jets and missing transverse energy. We consider ...

Job Related Stress and Employment of People with Mental Illness: A Catch 22

A roaring hike in stress related psychiatric symptoms is being noticed in the employees of corporate sectors. However, the industries are not well equipped to provide adequate medical help to these individuals, leading them to seek help on their own from outside. Due to the lack of collaboration with the mental health sector, mental health professionals face various dilemmas in ...

Evaluation of the muscle morphology of the obturator externus and piriformis as the predictors of avascular necrosis of the femoral head in acetabular fractures

Avascular necrosis (AVN) of femoral head is a recognised complication of fracture dislocation of the hip joint but is not studied frequently in relation to acetabulum fractures. The aim was to establish the relationship between obturator externus and piriformis muscle morphology in acetabulum fractures and potenital development of AVN of the femoral head. Twenty-five fractures were ...

Isolation of Catharanthus roseus (L.) G. Don Nuclei and Measurement of Rate of Tryptophan decarboxylase Gene Transcription Using Nuclear Run-On Transcription Assay

Background An accurate assessment of transcription ‘rate’ is often desired to describe the promoter activity. In plants, isolation of transcriptionally active nuclei and their subsequent use in nuclear run-on assays has been challenging and therefore limit an accurate measurement of gene transcription ‘rate’. Catharanthus roseus has emerged as a model medicinal plant as it exhibits ...

Isolation of a non-genomic origin fluoroquinolone responsive regulatory element using a combinatorial bioengineering approach

Advances in chemical biology have led to selection of synthetic functional nucleic acids for in vivo applications. Discovery of synthetic nucleic acid regulatory elements has been a long-standing goal of chemical biologists. Availability of vast genome level genetic resources has motivated efforts for discovery and understanding of inducible synthetic genetic regulatory elements. ...

Lippia javanica: a cheap natural source for the synthesis of antibacterial silver nanocolloid

Aqueous silver nanocolloid was synthesized in a single step by a biogenic approach using aqueous leaf extract of Lippia javanica plant which acts as both reducing as well as capping agent. The as-synthesized silver nanoparticles were characterized by UV–visible absorption spectroscopy, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy ...

NLO QCD corrections to the resonant vector diquark production at the LHC

With the upcoming run of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at much higher center of mass energies, the search for Beyond Standard Model (BSM) physics will again take center stage. New colored particles predicted in many BSM scenarios are expected to be produced with large cross sections thus making them interesting prospects as a doorway to hints of new physics. We consider the ...

Supply-Side Barriers to Maternity-Care in India: A Facility-Based Analysis

Background Health facilities in many low- and middle-income countries face several types of barriers in delivering quality health services. Availability of resources at the facility may significantly affect the volume and quality of services provided. This study investigates the effect of supply-side determinants of maternity-care provision in India. Methods Health facility data ...

Response analysis of a nuclear containment structure with nonlinear soil–structure interaction under bi-directional ground motion

Design of critical facilities such as nuclear power plant requires an accurate and precise evaluation of seismic demands, as any failure of these facilities poses immense threat to the community. Design complexity of these structures reinforces the necessity of a robust 3D modeling and analysis of the structure and the soil–foundation interface. Moreover, it is important to ...

Two light stops in the NMSSM and the LHC

We study the viability of having two relatively light top squarks (‘stops’) in the framework of the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM). Such light stops render the NMSSM rather ‘natural’. These are shown to be allowed by the relevant direct searches at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and to be compatible with the latest LHC results on the Higgs sector, other low ...

A revisit to a compressed supersymmetric spectrum with 125 GeV Higgs

A compressed spectrum was initially proposed as an explanation for the elusiveness of low-energy supersymmetry (SUSY). Some characteristic signals at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), such as mono-jet + , had been propounded as its trademark signals. However, later investigations suggested that lower limits on the supersymmetric particle masses would be quite stringent in spite of ...
