Graduate seminar exploring advanced topics in communications. Capacity-approaching codes, network information theory, quantum communications, wireless communications, equalization and multi-user detection, advanced wire-line modems.
Each class member leads discussion for one session. For that week, he or she reviews literature on a specific topic (with faculty assistance as required), prepares and leads a recitation-like survey of the subject, and produces a written summary suitable for distribution.
Students from the Digital Signal Processing Group (DSPG), and the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) have developed this course with the guidance of several members of the faculty, including Prof. David Forney and Prof. Vahid Tarokh.
The original course proposal is available in PS and PDF formats.
