This course will focus on fundamental principles as well as current research issues in multiple access techniques (including MIMO systems), cellular systems, ad-hoc wireless networks, cognitive radio systems, wireless sensor networks, and cross-layer wireless network design. Lectures will be based on required reading from the textbook complemented by magazine and journal articles. Active class participation is mandatory - required reading must be done
before class, and in-class time will be divided between lectures and
group discussions. Each student will be required to present a paper on one
of the course topics to the class.
The course grade will be based on class participation,
several paper surveys based on the required and supplemental reading,
several homework assignments based on the required reading,
and a final project.
