• On the Calculation of the Incomplete MGF with Applications to Wireless Communications 

      Lopez-Martinez, F. Javier; Romero-Jerez, Juan Manuel; Paris, Jose F. (IEEE, 2017)
      The incomplete moment generating function (IMGF) has paramount relevance in communication theory, since it appears in a plethora of scenarios when analyzing the performance of communication systems. We here present a general ...
    • Optimal Fair Scheduling in S-TDMA Sensor Networks for Monitoring River Plumes 

      Luque-Nieto, Miguel Ángel; Moreno-Roldán, José Miguel; Poncela-Gonzalez, Javier; Otero-Roth, Pablo (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2016)
      Underwater wireless sensor networks (UWSNs) are a promising technology to provide oceanographers with environmental data in real time. Suitable network topologies to monitor estuaries are formed by strings coming together ...
    • Optimal scheduling and fair servicepolicy for STDMA in underwater networks with acoustic communications 

      Luque-Nieto, Miguel-Ángel; Moreno-Roldán, José-Miguel; Otero-Roth, Pablo; Poncela-Gonzalez, Javier (MDPI, 2018-02)
      In this work, a multi-hop string network with a single sink node is analyzed. A periodic optimal scheduling for TDMA operation that considers the characteristic long propagation delay of the underwater acoustic channel is ...
    • Self-Organizing and Scalable Routing Protocol (SOSRP) for Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks 

      Kumar Hindu, Sateesh; Hyder, Waheeduddin; Luque-Nieto, Miguel-Angel; Otero-Roth, Pablo; Poncela-Gonzalez, Javier (MDPI, 2019-07-16)
      Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks (UASN) have two important limitations: a very aggressive (marine) environment, and the use of acoustic signals. This means that the techniques for terrestrial wireless sensor networks ...
    • The Fluctuating Two-Ray Fading Model: Statistical Characterization and Performance Analysis 

      Romero-Jerez, Juan Manuel; Lopez-Martinez, F. Javier; Paris, Jose F.; Goldsmith, A. (IEEE, 2017)
      We introduce the fluctuating two-ray (FTR) fading model, a new statistical channel model that consists of two fluctuating specular components with random phases plus a diffuse component. The FTR model arises as the natural ...
    • The κ-µ Shadowed Fading Model with Integer Fading Parameters 

      Lopez-Martinez, F. Javier; Paris, Jose F.; Romero-Jerez, Juan Manuel (IEEE, 2017)
      We show that the popular and general κ-μ shadowed fading model with integer fading parameters μ and m can be represented as a mixture of squared Nakagami- m̂ (or Gamma) distributions. Thus, its PDF and CDF can be expressed ...
    • Tilted subwavelength gratings: controlling anisotropy in metamaterial nanophotonic waveguides 

      Luque González, J. Manuel; Herrero-Bermello, Alaine; Ortega-Moñux, Alejandro; Molina Fernández, Íñigo; Halir, Robert; [et al.] (2018-10-24)
      Subwavelength grating (SWG) structures are an essential tool in silicon photonics, enabling the synthesis of metamaterials with a controllable refractive index. Here we propose, for the first time to the best of our ...
