Digital multitone modulation

We present the digital multitone modulation scheme and demonstrate its suitability for demodulation via FFAST.

Digital multitone modulation scheme

Let a finite alphabet A = { a 1 , a 2 , a | A | } be given, where each symbol a A is associated with a unique sequence of B ordered bits, b B - 1 , , b 1 , b 0 , where B = log 2 | A | and b i { 0 , 1 } for i = 0 , , B - 1 . For example, let A be the set of all lowercase letters in the English alphabet and associate each letter with its order in the alphabet. In this case, the binary sequence `01101' corresponds to the thirteenth letter, “m".

Generally speaking, Digital Multitone (DMT) Modulation is a “parallel communication scheme in which several carriers of different frequencies each carry narrowband signals simultaneously” [link] . These narrowband signals are usually sinusoids that encode the binary sequence associated with each symbol. If a bit is “high", then the corresponding sinusoid is expressed in the output signal; otherwise the bit is “low" and the sinusoid is not expressed. More precisely, given a symbol a A with the corresponding binary sequence b B - 1 , , b 1 , b 0 , the message signal m ( t ) is defined to be

m ( t ) = 1 k = 0 B - 1 b k k = 0 B - 1 b k c o s ( 2 π ( k + 1 ) f 0 t )

for some fundamental carrier frequency, f 0 .

In our previous example where A is the English alphabet and the letter “m" corresponds to “01101”, the message signal m ( t ) is the sum of the first, third, and fourth harmonics, as shown in the figure below:

Decomposition of “m” in DMT Scheme

In our computational experiments, we use digital multitone modulation to encode 8-bit Extended ASCII values. An Extended ASCII table can be found here . Below are several symbols and their digital multitone modulation signals.

Sparsity in digital multitone modulation

Sparse FFT algorithms only achieve low runtime complexity if the input signal is sparse in its Fourier representation; that is, if for a length- N signal, there are k nonzero DFT coefficients with k < < N . FFAST, the sparse FFT algorithm that we will be using, requires the sparsity constraint k < N 1 3 . Recall that the message signal, m ( t ) , is defined as

m ( t ) = 1 k = 0 B - 1 b k k = 0 B - 1 b k c o s ( 2 π ( k + 1 ) f 0 t )

so that the Nyquist frequency is 2 B f 0 . In order to ensure signal sparsity, the sampling frequency should be a multiple of the fundamental carrier frequency so that each of the sinusoidal components falls into a single frequency bin. This type of “on-the-grid" sampling may be expressed as

f s = N f 0

where N is the length of the sampled signal. Note that in [link] each sinusoid contributes two DFT coefficients. Thus, k = 2 B if all bits are high so that the sparsity condition may be expressed as 2 B < N 1 3 .

Sampling plays a large role in signal sparsification. There are many sampling methods that ensure sparsity and we present two different methods. The first method involves padding the input signal to achieve sparsity. Consider sampling at the Nyquist frequency so that f s = 2 B f 0 . As stated, this sampled signal is not necessarily sparse – in fact, k = N if all bits are high! However, periodizing the sampled signal sufficiently many times will result in higher frequency resolution by placing zero-value coefficients in between the nonzero coefficients, thus sparsifying the signal. This method results in a spectrum with nonzero coefficient few and far between. Second, consider sampling at a sufficiently high rate to satisfy the sparsity condition; that is, f s > 8 B 3 f 0 . First note that 8 B 3 f 0 > 2 B f 0 so that aliasing does not occur. This method results in a compact spectrum where only the first and last B coefficients are nonzero. See the figure below for a spectra that are characteristic of these methods.

Spectra for Different Sampling Schemes

It should be noted that there are many sampling methods that ensure signal sparsity but for the purposes of this project, we care only that the signal is sparse. Sampling schemes are discussed further in [link] .

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
