    In this contribution, a novel undetermined blind separation algorithm is proposed, which can be used to jointly estimate the source symbols and parameters of single-channel mixtures of two MPSK signals. The two signals have same symbol rate and roll-off factors, but small shift between fading...

    Number symbols are part of our everyday visual world. Here we show that merely looking at numbers causes a shift in covert attention to the left or right side, depending upon the number's magnitude. This observation implies obligatory activation of number meaning and signals a tight coupling of...
