ABSTRACT We generalize the total square correlation and the total weighted square correlation (TWSC) for a given signature set used in synchronous code division multiple access (S-CDMA) systems. We define the extended TWSC measure for multipath channels in the presence and the absence of the colored noise. The main results of this paper are the following: 1, the necessary and sufficient conditions of the received Gram matrix to maximize the sum capacity in the presence of multipath; 2, the conditions on the channel such that the received multipath sequences in the presence of the colored noise are Welch bound equality (WBE) sequences; 3, a decentralized method for obtaining generalized WBE sequences that minimize the TWSC in the presence of multipath and colored noise. Using this method, the optimal sequences, which achieve sum capacity for overloaded S-CDMA systems, in the presence of multipath are obtained. Numerical examples that illustrate the mathematical formalism are also included.

    ABSTRACT: Levenshtein improved the famous Welch bound on aperiodic correlation for binary sequences by utilizing some properties of the weighted mean square aperiodic correlation. Following Levenshtein's idea, a new correlation lower bound for quasi-complementary sequence sets (QCSSs) over the complex roots of unity is proposed in this paper. The derived lower bound is shown to be tighter than the Welch bound for QCSSs when the set size is greater than some value. The conditions for meeting the new bound with equality are also investigated.

    ABSTRACT: The global optimization of sensor locations and a sensitivity analysis based on the minimization of interferences due to wireless communications between sensors are studied in the presence of additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN). We used a Gram matrix approach for robust determination of sensor locations by minimizing the interferences (maximizing the signal strength) among sensors for engine health monitoring systems. In order to solve the problem of optimum placement, an iterative algorithm for maximizing the determinant of the Gram matrix is proposed and implemented. The sensitivity criterion proposed in this paper is the spectral number of the Frobenius norm of the Gram matrix associated with sensor readings. We derived the necessary conditions under which the number of sensors and the optimal sensor locations will remain unchanged when the data measured for sensitivity analysis is affected by AWGN. Our theoretical results are verified by simulations providing details concerning numerical implementations.

    ABSTRACT: We develop a binary signature design procedure to scale upwards overloaded minimum total-squared-correlation (TSC) binary signature sets. The quality of the design is measured against the recently published binary TSC bounds.
