    ABSTRACT: Cross-layer designs are becoming more and more attractive within the multimedia community since multiple-play services pave their way towards consumer markets enabling mobility in various aspects. However, cross-layer designs so far have mainly focused on performance issues and do not provide much support in terms of interoperability which is a requirement for services envisaged as part of the Fixed-Mobile Service Convergence (FMSC) initiative. This paper presents a first attempt towards increasing the interoperability of cross-layer designs by adopting an open standard ­ MPEG-21 Digital Item Adaptation ­ for describing the functional dependencies across network layers. In this paper a three-step approach for multimedia content adaptation is presented that introduces an MPEG-21-based cross- layer architecture.

    ABSTRACT: Due to the non-stationary wireless links and the rapid increase of new types of applications that require different levels of QoS parameters, the support for better QoS for the emerging 3GPP2 multimedia wireless applications is strongly needed. These parameters include: priority, delay, data loss, and data rate. Many possible combinations of system parameters have been specified in the current 1×EV-DV standard. However, there are no specifications about the dynamic resource allocations, i.e. the selection of optimal combination of system parameters such as the number of Walsh codes, the number of time slots, the modulation scheme, and the channel code rate. In this paper, a suite of cross-layer design modules for QoS support in the 1×EV-DV system is proposed. Our proposed design is composed of several modules build on top of each other. They include the priority admission control which admits users according to their QoS priority profiles, the resource allocation control module which is responsible for allocating the optimal combination of all system parameters, and the resource scheduling control module which aims at achieving a better overall throughput gain and guarantees the QoS requested by different users' service levels. The proposed dynamic resource allocation scheme is based on the effective capacity concept. Performance evaluation of the proposed cross-layer design has been carried out under a mix of traffic types.

    ABSTRACT: In a multimodal optimization task, the main purpose is to find multiple optimal solutions (global and local), so that the user can have better knowledge about different optimal solutions in the search space and as and when needed, the current solution may be switched to another suitable optimum solution. To this end, evolutionary optimization algorithms (EA) stand as viable methodologies mainly due to their ability to find and capture multiple solutions within a population in a single simulation run. With the preselection method suggested in 1970, there has been a steady suggestion of new algorithms. Most of these methodologies employed a niching scheme in an existing single-objective evolutionary algorithm framework so that similar solutions in a population are deemphasized in order to focus and maintain multiple distant yet near-optimal solutions. In this paper, we use a completely different strategy in which the single-objective multimodal optimization problem is converted into a suitable bi-objective optimization problem so that all optimal solutions become members of the resulting weak Pareto-optimal set. With the modified definitions of domination and different formulations of an artificially created additional objective function, we present successful results on problems with as large as 500 optima. Most past multimodal EA studies considered problems having only a few variables. In this paper, we have solved up to 16-variable test problems having as many as 48 optimal solutions and for the first time suggested multimodal constrained test problems which are scalable in terms of number of optima, constraints, and variables. The concept of using bi-objective optimization for solving single-objective multimodal optimization problems seems novel and interesting, and more importantly opens up further avenues for research and application.
