Transceiver Design Based on the Minimum-Error-Probability Framework for Wireless Communication Systems
Parameter estimation and signal detection are the two key components of a wireless communication system. They directly impact the bit-error-ratio (BER) performance of the system. Several criteria have been successfully ...
Cooperative Communication and QoS in Infrastructure WLANs
IEEE 802.11 wireless LANs operating in the infrastructure mode are extremely popular and have seen widespread deployment because of their convenience and cost eﬃciency. A large number of research studies have investigated ...
Data Fusion Based Physical Layer Protocols for Cognitive Radio Applications
This thesis proposes and analyzes data fusion algorithms that operate on the physical layer of a wireless sensor network, in the context of three applications of cognitive radios: 1. Cooperative spectrum sensing via binary ...
Source And Channel Coding Techniques for The MIMO Reverse-link Channel
In wireless communication systems, the use of multiple antennas, also known as Multiple-Input Multiple-Output(MIMO) communications, is now a widely accepted and important technology for improving their reliability and ...
Algorithms for Homogeneous Quadratic Minimization And Applications in Wireless Networks
Massive proliferation of wireless devices throughout world in the past decade comes with a host of tough and demanding design problems. Noise at receivers and wireless interference are the two major issues which severely ...
