An Efficient Procedure for the Time-Domain Sensitivity Analysis
Standard tools for CAD have limited modes of the sensitivity analysis: PSPICE only contains a static mode and SPECTRE includes frequency-domain and static modes. However, many RF systems use symmetrical structures for enhancing the circuit properties. For such systems, the static sensitivities are zero on principle and hence the time-domain sensitivity analysis should be used. In the paper, a novel recurrent formula for the time/domain sensitivity analysis is derived which uses by-products of an efficient implicit integration algorithm. As the selected integration algorithm is more flexible than the Gear's one that is ordinary used, the sensitivity analysis is more efficient in comparison with the standard CAD tools. An implementation of the method is demonstrated using the analysis of a low-voltage four-quadrant RF multiplier. Nonstandard temperature sensitivity analyses are also tested in the static and dynamic modes.

Extended Transfer Bound Error Analysis for Parametric Channel withContinuous Valued Correlated Random Nuisance Parameter
In this paper, we address the extended use of transfer bound analysis of bit error rate (BER) properties. In conjunction with proper parameter modeling, we offer a method to resolve the problem of transfer bound applicability on a system with random and possibly correlated continuous value nuisance parameters. We introduce a new additional parameter space into the original error space and join them in a product matrix for an extended transfer function evaluation. Example applications with simple trellis code for Rayleigh fading channel and phase synchronization error are investigated to demonstrate the functionality of the proved principle. Computer simulation results are presented for two different codes and various fading scenarios, and comparisons are made among analytical and measured system error performances.

General Framework and Advanced Information Theoretical Results on Eigenmode MIMO Channel Inversion
This paper provides general and deep investigation of adaptation strategies based on the channel inversion policy regarding wide variety of channel modes. Our novel approach to the eigenmode space MIMO channel inversion policy relies on the eigenmode space reduction providing zero transmission outage probability regardless of the instantaneous channel fading realization. Very detailed survey of the features of channel capacity is provided in analytical closed form expressions supported by many particular numerical results (Alamouti scheme is included). The correlated MIMO channel is involved into our treatment as well. We also address the trade-off between the capacity and transmission outage probability. The novel results are developed in the general framework with exhaustive summary of well known SISO and SIMO results.

RLS Adaptive Filtering Algorithms Based on Parallel Computations
The paper presents a family of the sliding window RLS adaptive filtering algorithms with the regularization of adaptive filter correlation matrix. The algorithms are developed in forms, fitted to the implementation by means of parallel computations. The family includes RLS and fast RLS algorithms based on generalized matrix inversion lemma, fast RLS algorithms based on square root free inverse QR decomposition and linearly constrained RLS algorithms. The considered algorithms are mathematically identical to the appropriate algorithms with sequential computations. The computation procedures of the developed algorithms are presented. The results of the algorithm simulation are presented as well.

Effective DSP Methods of PSK Feedback Timing Synchronization
This paper deals with simplification and improvement of data timing synchronization algorithms. Timing error synchronizers are usually the most complicated subsystems in the demodulator, and limit the DSP technique used for the high-rate application. This article is focused on feedback timing estimators for PSK modulation schemes, and shows modifications of widely used algorithms, that are suitable for the DSP implementation, as well as reach better parameters of the detection process. The methods applied in the evaluation of a timing error detector, which is a crucial part of the synchronizer, are described in the last part.

Simulation of "Tsunami Waves" Propagating along Non-Linear Transmission Lines
The paper compares three methods for computer simulation of transients on transmission lines with losses and nonlinear behavior, namely distributed LC model, FDTD (Finite-Difference Time-Domain) method, and a new and very effective Method of Slices. The losses are responsible for attenuation and shape changes of the waves as function of time and distance from the source. Special behavior of the line due to voltage-dependent capacitance of the line is considered in detail. The non-linear nature of the line causes that the higher is the voltage the higher is the velocity of propagation. Then, the waves tend to tilt over so that their top moves faster than their base. As a result "tsunami waves" are created on the line. Fundamental algorithms are presented in Matlab language. Several typical situations are solved as an illustration of individual methods.
