BER peroformance of MPSK and MQAM in Rayleigh fading channel

I have a question regarding bit error rate (BER) performance over the Rayleigh channel. I observed BER performance over the AWGN channel using Simulink in MATLAB. I used to change the "SNR" parameter ...

How can I find the Transfer Function in Z-domain?

This is my signal; $y[n]=x[n]+0.8x[n-0.2]$ When I take Z-transform I get; $Y[z]=X[z]+0.8z^\frac{-1}{5}X[z])$ Then I found the Transfer function as; $H[z]=\frac{Y[z]}{X[z]}$ $H[z]=1+0.8z^\frac{-1}{5}$ ...

How is MRI SNR affected by the frequencies that are included?

So for MRI imaging, if an image is taken, and portions of the Fourier transform image are removed so that some portion of the higher frequencies are not included, would this reduce the SNR? I assume ...
