Trends in Wireless Multiuser Communications


The exponential demand for wireless capacity coupled with the very limited supply of radio frequency bandwidth direct a potent spotlight on physical-layer communications engineering. Several emerging communication technologies hold the key to approaching the information theoretic limits of wireless multiple-access channels. This talk gives a brief review of those technologies and their promise to meet future demand for wireless data rate.

Host: Gadiel Seroussi  

About the speaker

Sergio Verdú is the Spring 2002 Hewlett-Packard/MSRI Visiting Research Professor. He received the Telecommunications Engineering degree from the Polytechnic University of Barcelona, in 1980 and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1984. He is Professor of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University, Princeton, NJ. He is active in the fields of information theory and multiuser communications. In the 1980s, he pioneered the technology of multiuser detection that exploits the structure of multiaccess interference in order to increase the capacity of multiuser communication systems. His textbook Multiuser Detection was published in 1998 by Cambridge University Press. Prof. Verdú is a Fellow of the IEEE and a recipient of several paper awards: the IEEE Donald Fink Paper Award, a Golden Jubilee Paper Award, and the 1998 Outstanding Paper Award from the IEEE Information Theory Society, and the 2000 Paper Award from the Telecommunications Advancement Foundation of Japan. He also received a Milleunium Medal from the IEEE and the 2000 Frederick E. Terman Award from the American Society for Engineering Education.
