Graduate student lecture: Random matrices in wireless communication systems

Benjamin Meaker visiting Professor: Peter Smith

Date: 23 July 2018
Time: 2pm
Location: Howard House, Level 4 Seminar Room

This talk will outline the many applications of random matrices in
communications. In particular, modern cellular systems where base
stations communicate with many mobile users with smart phones are
discussed. The modelling, design and analysis of such systems are
described from a statistical viewpoint. This is an area of genuine
cross-fertilization, where many contributions have been made in
engineering by statisticians and many statistical results are emerging
from the engineering literature. The state-of-the-art in random matrix
theory for communication systems is outlined along with open problems
and emerging challenges.
