    Abstract: In this paper, application of Epstein-Peterson method in the computation of a ten (10) multiple knife edge diffraction loss is presented for a 1 GHz microwave link. In the computation, each of the ten obstructions gave rise to a virtual hop which resulted in a knife edge diffraction loss. What is peculiar to the Epstein-Peterson method is how the v... Show More

    Abstract: In classical software development processes, graphical user interfaces cannot be reused across development platforms. In addition, in MDA-based processes, they are integrated only after making the transformation of the PIM to the PSM since they belong to the target platform and hence have the same problem. They are considered part of the PSM, which... Show More
