Wireless Communication Systems
Sunday May 26, 2002, 1:30 PM - 4:45 PM
This tutorial is intended to cover several selected topics in
wireless communications, and will be given by four communications
faculty at Arizona State University.
The first topic is on the use of multiple antennas for fading
channels, specifically, the recently invented space-time coding
techniques. In addition to the standard space-time codes, turbo
coding based schemes will also be discussed. The second selected
topic is orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) to
mitigate the frequency selective fading channel impairments
that arise from high data rate communications with low-complexity
processing at the transmitter and receiver. OFDM will be discussed
from a systems perspective including its merits and also its
drawbacks such as high peak-to-average-ratio at the transmitter and
intercarrier interference due to frequency offsets. The third
topic covers the cross layer design and analysis of CDMA wireless
multimedia networks. In particular, it will include methodologies
on utilizing the temporal structure of the multi-access
interference to perform adaptive rate control for uplink, and on
packet scheduling exploiting multiuser diversity for downlink.
Recent progress on multiuser detection will also be reported.
The fourth topic is on advances in time-varying signal processing
for wireless communications. A survey will address some of the
following methodologies: military jamming interference suppression;
multi-carrier communication pulse shaping; time-varying modulation
for multiuser systems; diversity in high data rate applications with
multipath and Doppler distortion.
About the Presenters:
Tolga M. Duman has joined ASU as an assistant professor in 1998 after
he received his Ph.D. from Northeastern University. His current research
interests are in digital communications, wireless and mobile
communications, channel coding, turbo codes, coding for recording
channels, and coding for wireless communications.
Antonia Papandreou-Suppappola received her doctorate in Electrical
Engineering at the University of Rhode Island (May 1995) before
accepting a research faculty position (1995-1999). She joined the
Arizona State University faculty in August 1999. Her research areas
include signal processing for wireless communications, integrated
sensors, time-frequency analysis, and detection and estimation theory.
Cihan Tepedelenlioglu received his PhD degree from the University
of Minnesota in May 2001. He is currently an Assistant
Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Telecommunications
Research Center in Arizona State University. His research
interests include wireless communications, estimation and
equalization algorithms for wireless systems, filterbanks and
multirate systems, carrier synchronization for OFDM systems,
power estimation and handoff algorithms.
Junshan Zhang joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at
Arizona State University in 2000, right after he received his
Ph.D. degree from Purdue University. His current research
interests include cross-layer design of wireless systems, radio
resource management, multiuser detection, and information theory.
