In order to obtain the transfer function of orthogonal filter, we should make a MSE as small as possible for a chosen step input.
The three weaves which are used in this study are orthogonal, layer to layer and angle interlock (Fig.1).
Another suggestion is to randomly change the orthogonal code of pilots so that the interfering signals will randomly change and therefore will have averaging rather than summing effect.
In this paper, we describe a method for determining an orthogonal set of maximum size, from a given set of admissible peptides.
With the two such orthogonal pairs of number and shape shown, mix the 25 tokens face-down and each of two players draws 10 tokens.
Guan Zhenchang used iron ore powder, barite powder, silt material, rosin, alcohol as binder, gypsum powder as modifier, and rock system in shaking table model test of similar materials, with the orthogonal design method to use the 12# ratio as a similar material for simulating the medium weathered coarse-grained granite layer in the shaking table model test [9].
Gauss matrix is not only related to most fixed orthogonal basis but also satisfies the restricted isometry property, so the Gauss matrix can be used as the projection observation matrix [18, 19].
where a,b,c are scalars such that b, c are nonzero and A, B are two nonzero 1-forms such that g(X, U) = A(X) and g(X, V) = B(X), [for all]X G X(M), U, V being unit vectors which are orthogonal, i.e., g(U,V) = 0.
The difficulties of generalizing these approaches are as follows: the first one is how to obtain an appropriate equivalent form of orthogonal condition of the STLCS that can be used in subsequent dual window computation; second challenge is how to use this condition to compute dual window functions.
Since the capacity-achieving USTM signal distribution at high SNR is isotropic on the Grassmannian manifold [G.sub.T,M] and each signal point is denoted as a unitary matrix [PHI], [bar.[PHI]] is defined as an antipodal point of [PHI] if [bar.[PHI]] is the orthogonal complement of [PHI] on [G.sub.T,M].
