In this paper we present a multicast protocol for short range networks that exploits the characteristics of physical layer network coding. In our proposed protocol, named CooPNC, we provide a novel cooperative approach that allows collision resolutions with the use of an indirect inter-network cooperation scheme. Through this scheme, we provide a reliable multicast protocol for partially overlapping short range networks with low control overhead. We show that with CooPNC higher throughput and energy efficiency are achieved, while it presents lower delay compared to state of the art multicast protocols. We provide an overview of our protocol with a simple scenario of overlapping networks and we then generalise its operation for a scalable scenario. Through mathematical analysis and simulations we prove that CooPNC presents significant performance gains compared to the state of the art in multicast communications for short range networks.
Over the past few years, the neural bases of mental imagery have been both a topic of intense debate and a domain of extensive investigations using either PET or fMRI that have provided new insights into the cortical anatomy of this cognitive function. Several studies have in fact demonstrated that there exist types of mental imagery that do not rely on primary/early visual areas, whereas a consensus now exists on the Basket Nike Blazer validity of the dorsal/ventral-route model in the imagery domain. More Blazer Nike Pas Cher importantly, these studies have provided evidence that, in addition to higher order visual areas, mental imagery shares common brain areas with other major cognitive functions, such as language, memory, and movement, depending on the nature of the imagery task. This body of recent results indicates that there is no unique mental imagery cortical network; rather, it Chaussure Nike Blazer reflects the high degree of interaction between mental imagery and other cognitive functions.
