Breakthroughs in Statistics: Volume II: Methodology and by Samuel Kotz

By Samuel Kotz

This is often the second one of a quantity number of seminal papers within the statistical sciences written in the past a hundred years. those papers have each one had a very good effect at the improvement of statistical concept and perform during the last century. every one paper is preceded by means of an creation written via an expert within the box supplying heritage details and assessing its impact. Readers will take pleasure in a clean outlook on now well-established positive aspects of statistical options and philosophy by means of turning into familiar with the methods they've been built. it's was hoping that a few readers can be encouraged to check a few of the references supplied within the advent (and additionally within the papers themselves) and so reach a deeper historical past wisdom of the foundation in their paintings.

The attenuation by heavy rain and snow sometimes results in outage of the radio communications at the SHF frequency band and above. g. around 12 GHz. Taking the above properties into account, different portions of the radio spectrum are better suited to different purposes. A radio spectrum channel has a bandwidth giving the width of the range of frequencies on which an information signal travels. A broader bandwidth is required in order to convey higher data rate information. This suggests that the higher frequency bands in the spectrum are more suitable for broadband communications.

The UHF band is used for TV broadcast services. It is also used for two-way communication systems, including cellular radio systems and TErrestrial Trunked RAdio (TETRA) systems, known as walkie-talkies. The band is also used for fixed wireless links and medium-range radars. The UHF band has a relatively short wavelength compared to VHF or lower bands. This leads to smaller sizes of antenna and transceiver device. Since the UHF radio waves can go through the ionosphere, the satellite communication systems also use this band, including the Global Positioning System (GPS) and mobile satellite systems.
