(electromagnetism)

multipath

(1) See multipath routing.

(2) A radio signal that winds up taking two or more paths because the signal is reflected off buildings or other obstructions. Although multipath is a problem with all kinds of radio transmission, ghosts on a TV channel are an example of multipath that you can see with your own eyes. See antenna diversity.

s (t) is the OFDM symbol transmitted with N subcarriers, on account of the wireless multipath propagation, the received signal at the m-th antenna element can be formulated as,
In this paper, an overview of three very important routing protocols proposed for WSN, LEACH, PEGASIS, VGA for single path routing and interference in the case of multipath routing, is provided and their comparative results are also discussed.
In the case of low SNR at 0dB and 5dB, assuming that the multipath number of the received signals is [L.sub.P] = 3, the arrival time is [[tau].sub.1] = 100 ns, [[tau].sub.2] = 140 ns, and [[tau].sub.3] = 180 ns, respectively; the direction of arrival is [[theta].sub.1] = 30[degrees], [[theta].sub.2] = 40[degrees], and [[theta].sub.3] = 60[degrees], respectively.
For the G-Nut/Anubis software, a generic triple-frequency combination for multipath estimates has been developed (Vaclavovic and Dousa, 2016) for more flexible multi-frequency data processing.
Therefore, we propose a priority-oriented streaming media multipath data transmission mechanism for developing future mobile streaming media applications and providing attractive benefits including transfer performance improvement and high-quality users experience provisioning.
