Article
Accurate measurement and monitoring of precipitation is crucial for many applications, such as flood and drought risk assessment and management. Conventional meteorological devices for estimating precipitation (i.e., rain gauges, disdrometers, active and passive remote sensors, be they ground-based, spaceborne, or airborne) have their own strengths...

In future communication satellite systems the adoption of higher frequencies as Q/V-band (around 40 GHz for downlink and 50 GHz for uplink) is seen as the promising step forward to achieve higher performance in terms of total system throughput. The envisaged usage of these frequency bands, bringing an additional 5 GHz bandwidth in each polarization...

We present the NEFOCAST project (named by the contraction of "Nefele", which is the Italian spelling for the mythological cloud nymph Nephele, and "forecast"), funded by the Tuscany Region, about the feasibility of a system for the detection and monitoring of precipitation fields over the regional territory based on the use of a widespread network...

Massive Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (mMIMO) is emerging as a cornerstone technology for the 5G. It promises to scale up the performance of the conventional communication systems by growing the number of antennas at the base station side. This paper proposes a decentralized, scalable, and energy efficient radio resource allocation method tailored...

Software Defined Radio (SDR) is currently one of the main topics of interest in military communications, as well as in civil ones. Since 2002, the Italian Ministry of Defense (MoD) has identified the SDR technology as a strategic capability. In this respect, Italy has become part of the major multinational programs related to military SDR and wavef...

The aim of this tutorial is to provide an overview, although necessarily incomplete, of game theory (GT) for signal processing (SP) in networks. One of the main features of this contribution is to gather in a single article some fundamental game-theoretic notions and tools that, over the past few years, have become widespread in the SP literature....

This paper deals with the power allocation problem in a multipoint-to-multipoint network, which is heterogenous in the sense that each transmit and receiver pair can arbitrarily choose whether to selfishly maximize its own rate or energy efficiency. This is achieved by modeling the transmit and receiver pairs as rational players that engage in a no...
Article
Full-text available
In this lecture note, we introduce the basic concepts of game theory (GT), a branch of mathematics traditionally studied and applied in the areas of economics, political science, and biology, which has emerged in the last fifteen years as an effective framework for communications, networking, and signal processing (SP). The real catalyzer has been...
Article
Full-text available
This work develops power control algorithms for bit/Joule energy efficiency (EE) maximization in wireless networks. Unlike previous related works, minimum-rate constraints are imposed and the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio takes a more general expression which encompasses some of the most promising 5G candidate technologies. Both network-c...
Article
In this paper, we investigate the power control problem in a cooperative network with multiple wireless transmitters, multiple amplify-and-forward relays, and one destination. The relay communication can be either full duplex or half-duplex, and all source nodes interfere with each other at every intermediate relay node, and all active nodes (trans...
Article
Full-text available
In this tutorial, the basics of game theory are introduced along with an overview of its most recent and emerging applications in signal processing. One of the main features of this contribution is to gather in a single paper some fundamental game-theoretic notions and tools which, over the past few years, have become widely spread over a large num...
