  • Publication number: 20180052219
    Abstract: Various examples of methods and systems are provided for direct closed-form finite alphabet constant-envelope waveforms for planar array beampatterns. In one example, a method includes defining a waveform covariance matrix based at least in part upon a two-dimensional fast Fourier transform (2D-FFT) analysis of a frequency domain matrix Hf associated with a planar array of antennas. Symbols can be encoded based upon the waveform covariance matrix and the encoded symbols can be transmitted via the planar array of antennas. In another embodiment, a system comprises an N×M planar array of antennas and transmission circuitry configured to transmit symbols via a two-dimensional waveform beampattern defined based at least in part upon a 2D-FFT analysis of a frequency domain matrix Hf associated with the planar array of antennas.

  • Patent number: 9774354
    Abstract: Various examples of methods and systems are provided for generation of correlated finite alphabet waveforms using Gaussian random variables in, e.g., radar and communication applications. In one example, a method includes mapping an input signal comprising Gaussian random variables (RVs) onto finite-alphabet non-constant-envelope (FANCE) symbols using a predetermined mapping function, and transmitting FANCE waveforms through a uniform linear array of antenna elements to obtain a corresponding beampattern. The FANCE waveforms can be based upon the mapping of the Gaussian RVs onto the FANCE symbols. In another example, a system includes a memory unit that can store a plurality of digital bit streams corresponding to FANCE symbols and a front end unit that can transmit FANCE waveforms through a uniform linear array of antenna elements to obtain a corresponding beampattern. The system can include a processing unit that can encode the input signal and/or determine the mapping function.

  • Patent number: 9418136
    Abstract: A media store server offers access to multimedia contents available from servers of one or more vendors. The media store server provides customers' digital information devices with catalog of content offered through the media store server. To provide a unified catalog for the store, the media store server retrieves a first descriptive text for a multimedia content in a catalog of vendor's server. The first descriptive text is converted into a second descriptive text representing the multimedia content, which is in a standardized format required for the media store server catalog. The second descriptive text for the multimedia content is compared with the descriptive texts of multimedia contents in the media store server catalog. The first descriptive text for the vendor's multimedia content is stored in the catalog of the media store server, if the second descriptive text for the multimedia content matches with any of the descriptive texts of multimedia contents in the catalog of the media store server.

  • Patent number: 9208253
    Abstract: Web content for different user platforms is provided in an efficient way. A request is received for an identified page of content from a client device, through a communication network, at a computer system configured as an application server. The user platform implemented by the client device is identified, from among user platforms supported by the application server. A View of the identified page of content is retrieved from storage by a processor of the computer system. The View of the identified page of content is processed to in a format reproducible on the client device for presentation to a user via execution of the identified user platform. For example, the View of the identified page of content is transmitted through the communication network to the client device in JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) or Extensible Markup Language (XML).

  • Patent number: 9002849
    Abstract: A media store server provides customers' digital information devices with a catalog of multimedia content available from servers of multiple vendors. To provide a unified catalog for the store, the multimedia contents are grouped according to descriptive texts. A descriptive text for a multimedia content item or file is obtained from a vendor's catalog, and the descriptive text is standardized to generate a token for that particular multimedia content item. The multimedia content is classified in an existing catalog group corresponding to an already existent token, if the generated token matches an existent token in the catalog of the media store server. A new group for multimedia content is generated and the particular multimedia content is assigned to the new group, if the generated token does not yet exist in the catalog of the multimedia store server.

  • Patent number: 8793660
    Abstract: The testing of programming code for a web service, such as code for a web service application program or for a web service application programming interface (API), is automatically performed. A set of web service requests is generated based on potential input values for fields of the requests that are included in a spreadsheet. The web service requests are firstly processed via execution of a production version of the programming code to generate a set of production web service responses, where the production version of the programming code is assumed to generate accurate web service responses. The web service requests are then processed via execution of a new version of the programming code to generate a set of new web service responses. The web service responses of the new and production sets are compared to determine whether the new version of the programming code functions accurately.

  • Publication number: 20130166421
    Abstract: Notifications regarding content transactions may be received at a high rate in systems providing content to a large number of customers from a number of vendors. Each notification may contain multiple fields of information about the transaction. Business rules for determining amounts that should be invoiced for content transactions have fields of information for matching to nonfictions. As each notification is received: (1) a rule having fields of information that match fields of information contained within the notification is located; (2) an amount that should be invoiced for the transaction is determined from the located rule; (3) a line item in the determined amount is added to an open invoice for the vendor related to the content transaction that the notification is about; and (4) the updated open invoice may be saved. These steps may all be performed in real time, without copying or redistributing data in the original notification.

  • Publication number: 20020107824
    Abstract: The present invention relates to information systems theories and expert systems theories. The present invention provides a process, apparatus and method for decision making, based on emulation of the human decision-making process using expert-generated primary bias values, wherein a primary bias value associates a particular alternative possibility of a possibility set with a particular query, and reflects the expert's conception of the relative degree of predictive value of the query for the particular alternative relative to other alternatives in the possibility set. In particular embodiments, the present invention provides a process, apparatus and method for providing a medical diagnosis or medical self-assessment.
