CT537 - Advanced Wireless Communications

This course covers some of the recent advances made in wireless communications predominantly at the physical and (medium access control) MAC layers. The course teaches the basics of probability theory, Optimization theory and Information theory. Subsequently the application of these mathematical techniques to wireless design problems will be discussed. The course will be designed to balance the theoretical and practical aspects of wireless networks.

The course is primarily for third semester M. Tech (ICT) students, however it is open to fourth year undergraduate students with good CPI (>7.5). A good background in probability theory, linear algebra, calculus is desired.
