Hello Patriots,

Reminder that TODAY Wednesday, April 8 at 2:00 pm est. International Advisors will be joining our Virtual Hangout! Do you have questions about travel, OPT, and general status? This is an opportunity to ask general questions to an advisor. We ask that you try your best to join the virtual chat right at 2:00pm est.

You can enter the Virtual Lounge here: https://bit.ly/33D44gb

Reminder that compliance questions that should be handled individually, for example questions about a specific internship and it's eligibility for CPT, should be addressed in an advising appointment. An open chat format would not be the appropriate place to discuss such specific matters. Visit oips.gmu.edu for the various options to set up an advising appointment.

For our students, faculty, and staff, it is important to plan ahead to make sure our furry friends are cared for.

Have a COVID-19 Plan in Place for Your Pets
--------------------------
Eight D.C., Maryland and Virginia animal welfare organizations โ€” including Fairfax County Animal Shelter โ€” are uniting to urge the community to have a plan in place for your beloved companion animals in the wake of COVID-19.

The tips include:

1. Find a temporary caregiver to take on your pets if you are hospitalized.

2. Prepare a pet supply kit.

3. Know the facts about COVID and pets.

CPE Seminar
Probabilistic model for DMR-whitened eigenvalues using high dimension, low sample size asymptotics, and random matrix theory
Jose Diaz-Santos

Abstract
Source enumeration algorithms typically rely on an eigendecomposition of the spatial sample covariance matrix (SCM) to estimate the number of signals. Most classical source enumeration methods assume a white noise background and large numbers of snapshots to estimate the spatial SCM. However, many non-stationary environments, e. g., the underwater channel, are characterized by strong noise with complicated structure that can change rapidly. Low levels sources are often masked in those environments. Source enumeration using an array in a colored noise environment relies on a whitening transformation as a preprocessing stage to mitigate the effects of colored noise. Whitening requires the estimation of the noise-only sample SCM, which is a challenging problem for large arrays in nonstationary environments due to the limited number of snapshots available. The amount of data required to estimate the spatial covariance scales with array size. The dominant mode rejection (DMR) whitening transform [Diaz-Santos & Wage, 2015], based on Abraham and Owsley's DMR beamformer [1990], replaces the small eigenvalues of the SCM by their average, thereby reducing the number of snapshots required to estimate an invertible noise-only SCM. Using random matrix theory (RMT) and high dimension, low sample size (HDLSS) asymptotics, this seminar derives the probability distribution of the largest DMR-whitened eigenvalue and defines a threshold for the source enumeration algorithm that guarantees a specified probability of false alarm. Specifically, the derivation builds on Jung et al.'s results on HDLSS asymptotics for principal component analysis [2012]. The approach assumes a generalized spiked covariance model for the narrowband noise received by the array. The proposed probabilistic model predicts the largest DMR-whitened eigenvalue as a function of the array dimension and number of snapshots. Simulations demonstrate the accuracy of the new model.

Game-Theoretic Framework for Cooperative Relaying in Cognitive Radio Networks

Abstract: Cognitive radio is a promising technology that aims to improve spectrum utilization by allowing unlicensed secondary users (SUs) to access and share licensed spectrum that is not being used by the primary users (PUs). Cognitive radio networks (CRNs) require suitable power control and resource allocation schemes to avoid harmful interference to the PUs and promote system capacity. With proper interference coordination, the SUs can efficiently access the available spectrum and achieve higher system capacity without compromising the PUs. In our work, we propose a novel Stackelberg game-theoretic framework to jointly manage spectrum resources and coordinate secondary users in a cognitive radio network with decode-and-forward cooperative relaying capability to extend coverage. The PUs and SUs are mapped into leader-follower pairs in which the SUs purchase spectrum resources from their corresponding PU leaders. An optimal SU transmit strategy incorporating cooperative relaying is derived, and a hybrid scheduling algorithm incorporating both direct transmission and relay transmission is proposed. Experimental results show that the proposed Stackelberg game framework can achieve significantly better system performance with cooperative relaying compared to an SU direct transmission scheme.
