We introduce the concept of q-ary superimposed codes. These codes are to be used in a multi-user concept where the set of active users is small compared to the total amount of potential users. The active transmitters use signatures or" length n of q-ary symbols to be t r a n s m i t t e d over a common channel and the channel output is equal to the set of active input values. We give bounds on the cardinality of the class of signatures as a function of the length n and the number of active users. Furthermore,…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
