This figure was generated using the following code:

The “fading profile” defined by the vector env is slow compared with the rate at which the adaptive gain moves, which allows the gain to track the changes. Also, the

power of the input never dies away completely. The problemsthat follow ask you to investigate what happens in more extreme situations.

Mimic the code in agcvsfading.m to investigate what happens when the input signal diesaway. (Try removing the abs command from the fading profile variable.) Can you explain what you see?

Mimic the code in agcvsfading.m to investigate what happens when the power of the input signalvaries rapidly. What happens if the sign of the gain estimate is incorrect?

## Summary

Sampling transforms a continuous-time analog signal into a discrete-time digital signal. In the time domain, thiscan be viewed as a multiplication by a train of pulses. In the frequency domain this corresponds to a replication ofthe spectrum. As long as the sampling rate is fast enough that the replicated spectra do not overlap, the samplingprocess is reversible; that is, the original analog signal can be reconstructed from the samples.

An AGC can be used to make sure that the power of the analog signal remains in the region where the sampling deviceoperates effectively. The same AGC, when adaptive, can also provide a protection against signal fades. The AGC can be designedusing a steepest descent (optimization) algorithm that updates the adaptive parameter by moving in thedirection of the negative of the derivative. This steepest descent approach to the solutionof optimization problems will be used throughout Software Receiver Design .

Details about resampling procedures are available in the published works of

which is available at his website at http://ccrma-www.stanford.edu/ $\stackrel{˜}{}$ jos/resample/.

A general introduction to adaptive algorithms centered around the steepest descent approach can be found in

One of our favorite discussions of adaptive methods is

where we get a research paper on Nano chemistry....?
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level

what is variations in raman spectra for nanomaterials
I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.

what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?
what is a peer
What is meant by 'nano scale'?
What is STMs full form?
LITNING

Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
what king of growth are you checking .?
Renato
What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?
