Benjamin Meaker visiting Professor: Peter Smith

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.
