"It's challenging to visualize a greater advisor to the paintings of Albert Einstein than Hawking, one of many world's most famed physicists and well known technology writers, whose personal a short heritage of Time has bought over 9 million copies. notwithstanding there are many well known books approximately Einstein's theories, Hawking is correct whilst he insists that the "most lucid, let alone exciting proponent of Einstein's principles has continually been Einstein himself." Even people with a minimum historical past in math and technology will come away with a willing figuring out of the towering genius and his transformative paintings at the nature of area, time and lightweight. integrated are Einstein's seminal papers on specified and common relativity, and his 1916 Relativity, the distinctive and common concept, and is the reason the speculation in basic, easy phrases obtainable to any high-school graduate with an information of easy algebra. Einstein's pioneering paintings in glossy quantum concept, from his 1905 discovery of photons to his later, serious critiques of the commonly authorized quantum conception (in excerpts from his 1950 ebook Out of My Later Years), is additionally thought of. Hawking provides a quick yet powerful creation to every part, making this gem of a set fairly shine. "

However, they have low efficiency in terms of frequency reuse and high complexity due to exchanging information of FBSs via network. Therefore, we consider the FBS with soft frequency reuse (SFR) scheme to improve the efficiency of frequency reuse. For performance improvement of macrocell UEs (MUEs), we propose a method to cluster FBSs with same SFR pattern. Since the proposed clustering scheme utilizes self-organization network (SON) technique without any information exchange of FBSs, it can improve the performance of MUEs with low complexity.
