What, no comments on the recent Google Image Recognition flap? You know, which identified a pair of black hominids as gorillas - It's funny, but even funnier, and astonishing, is that Google APOLOGIZED; yes, they apologized for an ALGORITHM! bad algorithm, naughty algorithm! hmmmm... why doesn't the algorithm issue its own apology, why go through corporate PR? Didn't Google per...

## Entropy before and after Huffmann coding vs. channel capacity

Dear all, please help me to interpret some strange(?) behaviour of Huffmann coding and entropy. Let me explain it at an example: Consider a source emitting four symbols x1-x4 with probabilities P(x1)=1/3, P(x2)=1/3, P(x3)=1/6, P(x4)=1/6. Calculating the entropy with H=sum(P(xi)*log2(P(xi)) gives us: H=1.918 Bit/symbol. So far so good. We perform Huffmann-Coding, arranging the symbols in the...

Hi, I would like to simulate IEEE802.11a WLAN over a Rayleigh multipath channel using Matlab and I'm dealing with the function "h=rayleighchan(ts,fd,tau,pdb). I'm really confusing about the sample time(ts) which on I have to use 50ns as the bandwidth=20MHz or I should choose the time of OFDM symbol which is equal to 4us according to the IEEE standards. Do you have any idea? Thank you in...

## Reed-Solomon FEC necessary to have the same characteristic for symbols and words?

Hi there, I have implemented an almost "universal" (read: compatible with most other decoders output) Reed-Solomon codec. I feel like I have a good intuitive grasp on the whole codec, except for one thing: I just can't understand why we are tied to the same characteristic at both the symbol level and at the word level. Let me explain: if for example you choose to work on GF(2^8), this means ...

Continuing an old post regarding Hamming window overlaps: http://www.dsprelated.com/showthread/comp.dsp/105321-1.php The first answer gives: "a 50% overlap would give a sum of 1.08". If I wish to reconstruct the input signal perfectly (so the amplitudes are exactly the same), then can I merely subtract the extra ~".08" from all the samples? --------------------------------------- Post...

Hello All I have two signals and I want to know which signal is more periodic than other. My approach: 1. Make both signals zero mean. 2. Take FFT of both signals. 3. Take sum of squared values of the output FFT within a band of 0.8 Hz to 2.6 Hz If the sum of first signal is high then the signal 1 is more periodic. This approach works but only 90% time. I need the success rate to be ...

hi all , I simulated OQpsk modulated data which has 4 samples per symbol (base band). I also simulated the squaring and differentiating based Timing error detector .Now i want to know how well is it performing for that i want to simulate and draw the s -curve. can anyone suggest me a best method to plot s-curve! thanks in advance...

Trying to implement kelly lochbaum for vocal tract I have a problem to represent closed mouth: 0 area gives a k=1, (total reflection of presure wave seems ok to me) but 1+k=2 means pressure is not 0 in last tube section just after this junction. What am i misunderstanding? Thanks for your attention victor bombi --------------------------------------- Posted through http://www.DSPRelated.c...

I just finished the reading of An introduction to different rounding algorithms, http://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1274485. I must admit I never pay much attention on the trick of the quantization. The approach of Round-toward-nearest is always used in my design. Did anyone have practical experiences to show the DSP filter performance improved or degraded by using Round-half-even ins...

I am facing some issue with my echo cancellation module. I am having a correlator and an adaptive filter modules. My correlator will detect presence of echo in the DTMF tones and will activate the adaptive filter. The adaptive filter will remove the echo present in the DTMF tones. Activation of adaptive filter is done only if the correlation is above a certain threshold. My issue is t...
