  • Publication number: 20150031384
    Abstract: A method is provided in the invention to carry out cell reference signal interferences cancellations, the base station transmits configuration information of at least one cell to a UE (S30), the configuration information is used by the UE to cancel cell reference signal interference with respect to the cell, the at least one cell comprises one or more interference cells, the cell reference signals of which interfere with the UE actually. The UE receives the configuration information from the base station (S40), and carries out cell reference signal interferences cancellations with respect to the interference cell (S46). Further, the cell reference signal interferences cancellations can be triggered by the base station, or triggered by the UE (S42, S44). The method of carrying out cell reference signal interferences cancellations, provided by the invention, fills the blank of the prior art.

  • Publication number: 20150003360
    Abstract: Embodiments provide methods, apparatuses and computer programs for a mobile transceiver 100 and for a base station transceiver 200 in a mobile communication system. The mobile transceiver apparatus 10 comprises means for receiving 12 a first configuration message from the base station transceiver 200. The first configuration message comprises information on a control region for the mobile transceiver 100. The control region indicates radio resources used by the base station transceiver 200 to transmit a control message to the mobile transceiver 100 on a control channel. The means for receiving 12 is operable to receive a second configuration message from the base station transceiver 200. The second configuration message comprises information on a search space. The search space indicates a subset of radio resources of the control region and the search space comprises a spatial radio resource.

  • Patent number: 8886463
    Abstract: To characterize an earth subterranean structure using a measurement assembly including electromagnetic (EM) receivers and one or more EM sources, measured voltage data collected by EM receivers in response to transmission by one or more EM sources is received. Based on a model, predicted EM data is computed. Inversion is iteratively performed according to a function that computes a difference between the measured voltage data and a product of a term containing the predicted EM data and a term containing distortion data that accounts at least for distortion effect by an environment of the measurement assembly. The inversion is iteratively performed to solve for parameters of the model and the distortion data.

  • Publication number: 20140258204
    Abstract: User-preference datapoints are collected. At least some of these datapoints are associated with user-preference information about an item (e.g., a movie), and some of these datapoints are associated with user-preference information about an attribute (e.g., a movie genre or an actor). A profile of the user is created based, at least in part, on these datapoints. When a new datapoint is collected, the new datapoint is assigned a user-preference “score.” If, for example, the new datapoint does not come with an explicit user-preference rating, then the score is based on related item and attribute datapoints already in the profile. Depending upon the relationship of the new datapoint to the already existing datapoints, a confidence value is assigned to the user-preference score. The profile is then updated with the new datapoint along with its assigned score and confidence rating. The user profile can be used in performing any number of actions.

  • Publication number: 20140254542
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method and apparatus for enhancing transmission of a downlink ACK/NACK signal in an LTE communication system. In order to attain the object of enhancing transmission of a downlink ACK/NACK signal, the invention proposes an enhanced design of the current PHICH and thus makes an enhanced PHICH (E-PHICH). The enhanced design is focused primarily upon the following aspects: the first aspect is to configure an E-PHICH in the legacy PDSCH and to transmit an ACK/NACK signal in the E-PHICH so that a UE demodulates the E-PHICH to obtain the ACK/NACK signal. The second aspect is to improve a PHICH-and-PUSCH association design by designing an implicit association between an E-PHICH index and a radio frequency resource occupied by a UL grant (in a legacy PDCCH or an E-PDCCH) and an explicit association between a PUSCH scheduled by a UL grant and an E-PDCCH respectively and to transmit an ACK/NACK signal in the E-PHICH so that a UE demodulates the E-PHICH to obtain the ACK/NACK signal.
