My courses

  • Coding / Spring 2014 - Chanel coding theory

    • In today's communications world channel coding underlies the physical layer of all major communication systems. For example: algebraic block coding (Reed-Solomon codes) are used in the CD and DVD standards, convolutional codes are widely used in wireless systems such as GSM,IS-95 and LANs (IEEE 802.11), trellis coded modulation is used in line modems and low-density parity check codes (LDPC) will be used to combat packet losses in future internet content distribution networks.
    • This course provides an introductory but thorough background in modern coding theory and covers both classical coding theory (block and convolutional codes), coding for bandlimited channels (Coded Modulation) and the modern theory of randomlike codes with iterative decoding (LDPCs, Turbo Codes).

  • Optim / Fall 2013 - Fundamentals of Optimisation

    • Convex optimization is broadly applied to many technical and non-technical fields and provides a powerful set of tools for the design and analysis of communication systems and signal processing algorithms.
    • This course addresses basic concepts and main techniques in linear, non-linear and convex optimization.
    • Special emphasis is devoted to exemplify their applications to telecommunications problems with the objective of developing the skills and background needed to recognize, formulate, and solve optimization problems.
    • The course aims to introduce Eurecom students to fundamental concepts as duality and KKT conditions, widely utilized techniques as linear and geometric programming and unconstrained optimization algorithms, but also to more advanced techniques, which have been widely applied in wireless communications nowadays, namely, second order cone programming and semi definite programming.
