The apparatus and methods may use randomly generated population distribution differences to generate a mapping of a population stability index to a population distribution difference function. The population distribution difference function may be more responsive to some differences between the first and second population distribution data sets than is the population stability index. The population distribution difference function thus may be used to identify differences between population distribution data sets. The differences may then be mapped to a corresponding population stability index. The population stability index may then be used to quantify a difference between the first and second data sets."

*** BAE Systems Information and Electronic Systems Integration Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 6 -- BAE Systems Information and Electronic Systems Integration, Nashua, N.H., has been assigned a patent (8,326,309) developed by Apurva N. Mody, Lowell, Mass., and Ranga Reddy, Bridgewater, N.J., for a "resource allocation in co-existence mode." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Techniques are disclosed that allow for resource allocation during situations requiring co-existence in cognitive radios. Even under situations of bandwidth scarcity, the techniques allow various users to be guaranteed quality of service (QoS) by proper distribution and allocation of resources. The techniques allow wireless communication systems to operate in a normal mode and a co-existence mode. In the co-existence mode of operation, sub-frame creation, sharing and zone formation schemes are implemented that enable the existing underlying frame structure to remain intact and inter-operable with the legacy systems and at the same time, provide a guaranteed QoS. The zones effectively create partitions in space, time and frequency, which result in interference avoidance and allow various users in neighboring cells to communicate on the same frequencies." The patent application was filed on March 6, 2009 (12/399,730).

*** Fiber-Span Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 6 -- Fiber-Span, Branchburg, N.J., has been assigned a patent (8,326,156) developed by James N. Stewart, Brick, N.J., for a "cell phone/internet communication system for RF isolated areas." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A communication system for providing downlink and uplink communication between Service Providers, and users located in RF remotely located isolated areas, includes the sequential series connection of Service Provider signal sectors to Radio Interface Modules (RIM's), Service Combiner Units (SCU's), Fiber Transceiver Units (FTU's), Optical Multiplexer Units (OMU's), and Remote Fiber Nodes (RFN's), with only the RFN's being located in the RF isolated areas. The RIM's provide level control of RF signals bidirectional flowing between the Service Providers and SCU's. The SCU's both multiplex and split received downlink RF signals for inputting to the FTU's, and also combine and split RF uplink signals received from the FTU's for feed to the RIM's. The FTU's convert downlink RF signals into optical signals, and split the optical signals for connection to the OMU's. The FTU's also convert uplink optical signals received from the OMU's into uplink RF signals for connection to the SCU's. The OMU's combine downlink optical signals received from the FTU's for inputting into the RFN's, and demultiplex uplink optical signals received from the RFN's for connection to the FTU's. The RFN's convert downlink optical signals into RF signals, and amplify and feed these signals into an antenna system. The RFN's also receive RF uplink signals from devices of users in RF isolated areas, and converts the RF uplink signals into optical uplink signals for connection to the OMU's."

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An optical fiber that is relatively insensitive to bend loss comprises a core region and a cladding region configured to support and guide the propagation of light in a fundamental transverse mode, the cladding region including (i) an outer cladding region having a refractive index less than that of the core region, (ii) an annular cladding pedestal region having a refractive index higher than that of the outer cladding region and comparable to that of the core region, and (iii) an annular cladding inner trench region disposed between the core region and the pedestal region, the inner trench region having a refractive index less than that of the outer cladding region. In one embodiment, the fiber also includes a (iv) an annular cladding outer trench region disposed between the pedestal region and the outer cladding region, the outer trench region having a refractive index less than that of the outer cladding region. In addition, to suppress HOMs the pedestal region is configured to resonantly couple at least one other transverse mode of the core region to at least one transverse mode of the pedestal region. Such fiber is advantageously used as access fiber, but may have other applications, such as sensor fiber." The patent application was filed on Jan. 12, 2011 (13/005,353).

*** Xerox Assigned Patent for Belt Tracking Using Two Edge Sensors ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 6 -- Xerox, Norwalk, Conn., has been assigned a patent (8,326,162) developed by four co-inventors for a "belt tracking using two edge sensors." The co-inventors are Joannes N.M. DeJong, Hopewell Junction, N.Y., Lloyd A. Williams, Mahopac, N.Y., Rudy Castillo, Briarwood, N.Y., Matthew Dondiego, West Milford, N.J.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Methods and devices detect a first lateral measure of an edge of a belt loop supported by rollers within an apparatus using a first sensor to find an amount of misalignment of the edge of the belt loop relative to a known alignment position. The first sensor is positioned at a first location within the apparatus. The methods and devices also detect a second lateral measure of the edge of the belt loop within the apparatus relative to the known alignment position using a second sensor. The second sensor is positioned at a second location within the apparatus that is different than the first location. The methods and devices use a processor to determine the non-linear shape of the edge of the belt loop based on the second lateral measure of the edge of the belt loop detected by the second sensor. The methods and devices correct the amount of misalignment detected by the first sensor based on the non-linear shape of the edge of the belt loop to generate a corrected misalignment value, using the processor. Further, the method and devices adjust the current lateral position of the belt loop within the apparatus relative to the known alignment position based on the corrected misalignment value using a belt tracking actuator that is operatively connected to the processor."

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An optical fiber coupler array capable of providing multiple low loss, high coupling coefficient interfaces between a predetermined number of low numerical aperture optical fibers and an optical waveguide device with at least a corresponding number of waveguide interfaces. The novel coupler array includes a plurality of coupler inner cores and a plurality of corresponding coupler outer cores, within a medium surrounding each plural outer core, and also includes a first end for interfacing with plural optical fibers and a second end for interfacing with a plurality of waveguide interfaces of an optical waveguide device. The sizes of the inner and outer cores are gradually reduced from the first end to the second end in accordance with at least one predetermined reduction profile. Various parameters, such as refractive indices and sizes of the inner and outer cores and the medium (as well as the reduction profile) are selected to produce a plurality of low numerical aperture waveguides at the first end, and a plurality of high numerical aperture waveguides at the second end, while advantageously minimizing insertion loss and maximizing the coupling coefficient at each end. Advantageously, the novel coupler array may be fabricated as an array of individually drawn couplers from multiple parallel fused performs (arranged in a row, or in another geometric cross section). Alternately, the novel coupler array may be fabricated from a single perform (glass or polymer) embedded with a plurality of parallel inner and outer core sets."
