The Journal of China Universities of Posts and Telecommunications    2022, 29 (1): 2-12.   DOI: 10.19682/j.cnki.1005-8885.2022.2002

As one of the critical technologies for the 6th generation mobile communication system (6G) mobile communication systems, artificial intelligence (AI) technology will provide complete automation for connecting the virtual and physical worlds. In order to construct the future ubiquitous intelligent network, people are beginning to rethink how mobile communication systems transmit and exploit intelligent information. This paper proposes a new communication paradigm, called the Intellicise communication system: model-driven semantic communication. Intellicise communication system is built on top of the traditional communication system and innovatively adds a new feature dimension on top of the traditional source coding, which enables the communication system to evolve from the traditional transmission of bit to the transmission of  model . Like the semantic base (Seb) for semantic communication, the model is considered as the new feature obtained from the joint source-channel coding. The sink node can re-construct the original signal based on the received model and the encoded sequence. In addition, the performance evaluation metrics and the implementation details of the Intellicise communication system are discussed in this paper. Finally, preliminary results of model-driven image transmission in the Intellicise communication system are presented.

In order to study the financial behavior of investors in the spot market, the transmission process of futures prices to spot prices is analyzed. Firstly, a coarse-graining method is proposed to construct a dual-layer coupled complex network of spot price and futures price. Then, to characterize the financial behavior of investors in the spot market, a price coupling strength indicator is introduced to capture investors' overreaction and underreaction behavior. The simulation results show that, despite the focus of researchers on arbitrage opportunities between futures and spot markets, investors in the spot market will not overreact or delay when the acceptance level of price fluctuations remains unchanged. On the contrary, when the stable coefficient of the price difference between the futures and spot markets remains unchanged, investors undergo a nonlinear process of overreaction followed by underreaction as their acceptance level of price fluctuations increases.

Li Hui, Li Shanshan, Zou Borong, Chen Yannan
The Journal of China Universities of Posts and Telecommunications    2022, 29 (1): 113-124.   DOI: 10.19682/j.cnki.1005-8885.2022.2012

Deep learning has recently been progressively introduced into the field of modulation classification due to its wide application in image, vision, and other areas. Modulation classification is not only the priority of cognitive radio and spectrum sensing, but also the link during signal demodulation. Combining the advantages of convolutional neural network (CNN), long short-term memory (LSTM), and residual network (ResNet), a modulation classification method based on dual-channel CNN-LSTM and ResNet is proposed to automatically classify the modulation signal more accurately. Specifically, CNN and LSTM are initially used to form a dual-channel structure to effectively explore the spatial and temporal features of the original complex signal. It solves the problem of only focusing on temporal or spatial aspects, and increases the diversity of features. Secondly, the features extracted from CNN and LSTM are fused, making the extracted features richer and conducive to signal classification. In addition, a convolutional layer is added within the residual unit to deepen the network depth. As a result, more representative features are extracted, improving the classification performance. Finally, simulation results on the radio machine learning (RadioML) 2018.01A dataset signify that the network's classification performance is superior to many classifiers in the literature.

The Journal of China Universities of Posts and Telecommunications    2023, 30 (6): 30-37.   DOI: 10.19682/j.cnki.1005-8885.2023.1015

Traditional loss-based transports cannot meet the strict requirements of low latency and high throughput in data center networks (DCNs). Thus data center transmission control protocol (DCTCP) is proposed to better manage the congestion control in DCNs. To provide insight into improving the stability of the DCN, this paper focuses on the Hopf bifurcation analysis of a fluid model of DCTCP, and investigates the stability of the network. The round-trip time (RTT), being an effective congestion signal, is selected as the bifurcation parameter. And the network turns unstable and generates periodic solutions when the parameter is larger than the given critical value, which is given by explicit algorithms. The analytical results reveal the existence of Hopf bifurcation. Numerical simulations are performed to make a comparative analysis between the fluid model and the simplified model of DCTCP. The influence of other parameters on the DCN stability is also discussed.

This paper studies the dynamic event-triggered leader-follower consensus of nonlinear multi-agent systems (MASs) under directed weighted graph containing a directed spanning tree, and also considers the effects of disturbances and leader of non-zero control inputs in the system. Firstly, a novel distributed control protocol is designed for uncertain disturbances and leader of non-zero control inputs in MASs. Secondly, a novel dynamic event-triggered control ( DETC) strategy is proposed, which eliminates the need for continuous communication between agents and reduces communication resources between agents. By introducing dynamic thresholds, the complexity of excluding Zeno behavior within the system is reduced. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed theory is validated through numerical simulation.

This paper aims at solving the linear-quadratic optimal control problems ( LQOCP) for time-varying descriptor systems in a real Hilbert space. By using the Moore-Penrose inverse theory and space decomposition technique, the descriptor system can be rewritten as a new differential-algebraic equation (DAE), and then some novel sufficient conditions for the solvability of LQOCP are obtained. Especially, the methods proposed in this work are simpler and easier to verify and compute, and can solve LQOCP without the range inclusion condition. In addition, some  numerical examples are shown to verify the results obtained.

The extraction and description of image features are very important for visual simultaneous localization and mapping (V-SLAM). A rotated boosted efficient binary local image descriptor ( BEBLID) SLAM ( RB-SLAM) algorithm based on improved oriented fast and rotated brief (ORB) feature description is proposed in this paper, which can solve the problems of low localization accuracy and time efficiency of the current ORB-SLAM3 algorithm. Firstly, it uses the BEBLID to replace the feature point description algorithm of the original ORB to enhance the expressiveness and description efficiency of the image. Secondly, it adds rotational invariance to the BEBLID using the orientation information of the feature points. It also selects the rotationally stable bits in the BEBLID to further enhance the rotational invariance of the BEBLID. Finally, it retrains the binary visual dictionary based on the BEBLID to reduce the cumulative error of V-SLAM and improve the loading speed of the visual dictionary. Experiments show that the dictionary loading efficiency is improved by more than 10 times. The RB-SLAM algorithm improves the trajectory accuracy by 24.75% on the TUM dataset and 26.25% on the EuRoC dataset compared to the ORB-SLAM3 algorithm.

In recent years, there has been considerable attention and research on the higher-order interactions that are prevalent in various real-world networks. Hypergraphs, especially in the study of complex systems, are proved effective in capturing these interactions. To better characterize the model in reality, this paper proposes a theoretical model of node interdependent percolation in multiplex hypergraphs, considering “ weak ” interdependence. The proposed model includes pairwise and higher-order interactions, where the removal of nodes triggers cascading failures. However, interdependent nodes connected to failed nodes experience partial loss of connections due to “ weak” interdependence, reflecting the self-sustaining capabilities of real-world systems. Percolation theory is applied to the analysis to investigate the properties of the percolation threshold and phase transition. Both analysis and simulation results show that as the strength of interdependence between nodes weakens, the network transitions from a discontinuous to a continuous phase, thereby increasing its robustness.

In order to improve the reliability and resource utilization efficiency of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication system, in this paper, the fairness optimization and power allocation for the cognitive V2V network that takes into account the realistic three-dimensional (3D) channel are investigated. Large-scale and small-scale fading are considered in the proposed channel model. An adaptive non-orthogonal multiple access ( NOMA) / orthogonal multiple access (OMA) scheme is proposed to reduce the complexity of successive-interference-cancellation (SIC) in decoding and improve spectrum utilization. Also, a fairness index that takes into account each user’s requirements is proposed to indicate the optimal point clearly. In the imperfect SIC, the optimization problem of maximizing user fairness is formulated. Then, a subgradient descent method is proposed to solve the optimization problem with customizable precision. And the computational complexity of the proposed method is analyzed. The achievable rate, outage probability and user fairness are analyzed. The results show that the proposed adaptive NOMA / OMA (A-NOMA / OMA) outperforms both NOMA and OMA. The simulation results are compared with validated analysis to confirm the theoretical analysis.

In the long history of more than 1 500 years, Dunhuang murals suffered from various deteriorations causing irreversible damage such as falling off, fading, and so on. However, the existing Dunhuang mural restoration methods are time-consuming and not feasible to facilitate cultural issemination and permanent inheritance. Inspired by cultural computing using artificial intelligence, gated-convolution-based dehaze net (GD-Net) was proposed for Dunhuang mural refurbishment and comprehensive protection. First, a neural network with gated convolution was applied to restore the falling off areas of the mural to ensure the integrity of the mural content. Second, a dehaze network was applied to enhance image quality to cope with the fading of the mural. Besides, a Dunhuang mural dataset was presented to meet the needs of deep learning approach, containing 1 180 images from the Cave 290 and Cave 112 of the Mogao Grottoes. The  experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness and superiority of GD-Net.

The flexibility of the media access control (MAC) layer has always been an important concern in the existing communication architecture. To meet the more stringent requirements under large-scale connections, the MAC layer structure needs to be optimized carefully. This paper proposes a new architecture of the MAC layer to optimize the complex communication backhaul link structure, which will increase the flexibility of the system and decrease the transmission delay. Moreover, an adaptive transmission time interval (TTI) bundling with self-healing scheme is proposed to further decrease the transmission delay and improve the quality of service (QoS). The simulation results show that the average transmission delay is greatly reduced with our proposed scheme. The bit error rate (BER) and the block error rate are also improved even if the channel changes drastically.

When the power of the mainlobe interference received by the receiver is at the same level as the power of the sidelobe interference power, the traditional eigen-projection interference suppression method has the problems of severe beam deformation and peak shift. Aiming at these problems, a beam pattern optimization method (BPOM) was proposed, which can suppress the interference well even when the mainlobe interference power is approximately equal to the sidelobe interference power. In the method, the mainlobe interference eigenvectors are firstly determined according to the correlation criterion. Then through the eigenvalue comparison, the sidelobe interference eigenvectors whose eigenvalues are approximately equal to the mainlobe interference eigenvalues are judged. After that, a projection matrix is constructed to filter out the mainlobe and sidelobe interference. Finally, the covariance matrix is reconstructed and the weight vector for beamforming is obtained. Simulation shows that BPOM has a better output performance than the existing algorithms in case that the power of the mainlobe interference is close to that of the sidelobe interference.

The signal is subjected to lots of interferences in vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) channel propagation, resulting in receiving error codes. Two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) geometrical channel models are used to depict the wideband V2V multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels. Using the channel model, Turbo code and low-density parity-check (LDPC) code are investigated for wideband V2V MIMO system, and the encoding and the decoding schemes are investigated. The bit error rate (BER), channel capacity and outage probability of wideband V2V MIMO system using Turbo code and LDPC code are analyzed at different typical speeds. The results show that the performance of wideband V2V MIMO system using Turbo code outperform that using LDPC code. The performance is affected by transmitting and receiving speeds with the same coding scheme. And the channel capacity of the 3D channel is larger than that of 2D channel.

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are increasingly applied in various mission scenarios for their versatility, scalability and cost-effectiveness. In UAV mission planning systems (UMPSs), an efficient mission planning strategy is essential to meet the requirements of UAV missions. However, rapidly changing environments and unforeseen threats pose challenges to UMPSs, making efficient mission planning difficult. To address these challenges, knowledge graph technology can be utilized to manage the complex relations and constraints among UAVs, missions, and environments. This paper investigates knowledge graph application in UMPSs, exploring its modeling, representation, and storage concepts and methodologies. Subsequently, the construction of a specialized knowledge graph for UMPS is detailed. Furthermore, the paper delves into knowledge reasoning within UMPSs, emphasizing its significance in timely updates in the dynamic environment. A graph neural network (GNN)-based approach is proposed for knowledge reasoning, leveraging GNNs to capture structural information and accurately predict missing entities or relations in the knowledge graph. For relation reasoning, path information is also incorporated to improve the accuracy of inference. To account for the temporal dynamics of the environment in UMPS, the influence of timestamps is captured through the attention mechanism. The effectiveness and applicability of the proposed knowledge reasoning method are verified via simulations.

This paper proposes a novel method for the parameter optimization of complex networks established through coarsening and phase space reconstruction. Firstly, we identify the change-points of the time series based on the cumulative sum ( CUSUM) control chart method. Then, we optimize the coarse-graining parameters and phase space embedding dimension based on the evolution analysis of the global topology index ( betweenness) at the mutation point. Finally, we conduct a simulation analysis based on real-time data of Chinese copper spot prices. The results show that the delay of the copper spot prices in Chinese spot market is 1 day, and the optimal embedding dimension of the phase space reconstruction is 3. The acceptance level of the investors towards the small fluctuations in copper spot prices is 0.2 times than the average level of price fluctuations, which means that an average price fluctuation of 0.2 times is the optimal coarse- graining parameter.

This paper is devoted to investigate the consensus problems for the multi-agent systems with Lurie nonlinear dynamics in directed topology. Under some assumptions, some sufficient conditions for the systems reaching leaderless consensus and tracking consensus are established by using contraction analysis theory. Compared with the existing results, there is no need to formulate the multi-agent networks in compact form. These conditions are only related to the individual agent in lower-dimensional case and the communication topology of the network. Additionally, a generalized nonlinear function is introduced. Finally, three numerical examples are demonstrated to illustrate the effectiveness of the theoretical results.
