G. Ghatak, H. Mohanty, A. Rahman "Kolmogorov–Smirnov Test-Based Actively-Adaptive Thompson Sampling for Non-Stationary Bandits" Arxiv,2021.

We consider the non-stationary multi-armed bandit (MAB) framework and propose a Kolmogorov-Smirnov (KS) test based Thompson Sampling (TS) algorithm named TS-KS, that actively detects change points and resets the TS parameters once a change is detected. In particular, for the two-armed bandit case, we derive bounds on the number of samples of the reward distribution to detect the change once it occurs. Consequently, we show that the proposed algorithm has sub-linear regret. Contrary to existing works, our algorithm is able to detect a change when the underlying reward distribution changes even though the mean reward remains the same. Finally, to test the efficacy of the proposed algorithm, we employ it in two casestudies.

A. Gupta,M. Gupta, V. Batra "Subclinical left ventricular dysfunction in COVID-19 recovered patients using speckle tracking echocardiography"Echocardiography,2021.

The ongoing coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic continues to cause considerable morbidity and mortality worldwide.1Cardiovascular manifestations in COVID-19 include myocarditis, acute coronary syndrome, cardiac arrhythmias, heart failure, cardiogenic shock and venous thromboembolism. Acute cardiac injury (defined by elevated cardiac troponin levels) has been reported in 8-28% of patients with COVID19 and is associated with worse clinical outcomes.In addition, few studies have observed subclinical myocardial dysfunction in COVID-19 patients.However, there is paucity of data regarding myocardial dysfunction in COVID-19 recovered patients

M. Shaikh, V. Bohara, A. Srivastava, G. Ghatak "Intelligent Reflecting Surfaces Versus Full-Duplex Relaying: Performance Comparison for Non-Ideal Transmitter Case" IEEE 32nd Annual International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications (PIMRC),2021.

An intelligent reflecting surface (IRS) comprises of an array of discrete reflective elements (REs) possessing re-configurable scattering properties. IRS has the capability to beamform and relays the received radio signal from the transmitter to the desired receiver. This has made the IRS a promising candidate technology for the beyond fifth-generation(5G) cellular standards. In this work, the performance of an IRS-assisted wireless communication system is investigated and compared with the full-duplex (FD) relay-assisted system in the presence of non-ideal transmitters. Specifically, the performance is compared in terms of channel capacity and energy efficiency (EE). The results show that the IRS can never achieve more capacity than the ideal FD relaying, in the presence of a nonideal transmitter, irrespective of the placement of IRS and relay.

G. Singh, A. Srivastava, V. Bohara, Z. Liu "Downlink Performance of Optical Power Domain NOMA for Beyond 5G Enabled V2X Networks" IEEE Open Journal of Vehicular Technology ( Early Access ),2021.

In this work, we explore the potential benefits and practical challenges associated with implementation of optical power domain non-orthogonal multiple access (OPD-NOMA) scheme for visible light communications (VLC) based vehicleto-everything (V2X) networks with a major aim of providing vehicles with reliable, ubiquitous, and massive connectivity. In the proposed framework, an installed light source (e.g., traffic lamp post or street light lamp post) broadcasts a safety related message to desired nodes through visible light. However, such VLC transmission is subject to interference originating from the vehicles in the adjacent lane. Using the stochastic geometry approach, we model the locations of vehicles on the road via Poisson point process.
