ABSTRACT Successive interference cancellation (SIC) has been used in multirate code division multiple access (CDMA) systems to eliminate the cochannel interference. In SIC, the required transmission power of a certain user can be reduced if it is detected late in the cancellation order as the interferences caused by the users that are detected before have been cancelled. We study the power control strategy based on different orderings for the SIC given the knowledge of the battery capacity of the mobiles. In particular we propose different ordering schemes for SIC for different optimization objectives such as minimizing the total power, maximizing the minimum transmission/connection time for a group of users within the same cell and maximizing the total amount of data transmitted for a group of users. Experimental results show that significant improvement can be achieved by using the proposed ordering methods.

    ABSTRACT: Handicap et normalisation. Analyse des transformations du rapport à la norme dans les institutions et les interactions Myriam Winance Dans cet article, l'auteur analyse le lien entre la notion de handicap et l'insertion ou la normalisation des « personnes handicapées ». Au cours du XXe siècle, la notion de handicap est définie en termes de déficit et d'écart par rapport à une norme sociale. A cette définition correspond une première forme de normalisation qui consiste dans un alignement sur la norme de la validité. Cette normalisation s'appuie d'une part sur des dispositifs institutionnels et est présente d'autre part dans les interactions. En reprenant les analyses de Goffman, l'auteur met en évidence les implications de cette forme de normalisation et montre qu'une deuxième forme de normalisation, qui échappe à Goffman, est possible dans les interactions et mise en œuvre par certains dispositifs innovants du domaine du handicap. A partir des travaux de Garfinkel, l'auteur définit cette normalisation comme un travail sur la norme.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper a social constructionist approach is used to frame an analysis of the effects of physical impairment on self-perception. The results are reported of a recent study in which questionnaires were mailed to 314 people who were paraplegic and 284 who were post-polio, as well as to a control group of 327 who had no visible physical impairments.While the people who were paraplegic and those who made up the control group gave similar answers to most of the survey questions, those who were post-polio displayed a consistent, but different, way of reporting on their self-representations. Moreover, this discourse, which included such self-described characteristics as self-control, a sense of duty, and a concern for meticulousness, was consistent in the post-polio group across sex and age.It is concluded that the date of onset of physical impairment is significant in influencing the self-representation of persons with physical impairments. The socio-historical evolution of social practices and cultural expectations and norms with respect to persons with disabilities in Western cultures were taken into account in interpreting the results of this survey.
