Modelling and Theoretical Analysis for Communication Systems

Course Description

This course is designed to introduce fundamental knowledge on the several theoretic methods and how to use them to model and analyze different issues in communication systems such as resource allocation, routing, and protocol design in different communication systems. For instance, the strategic making decision can be used to analyze the spectrum sharing in cognitive radio networks. The VCG auction can be used to analyze the shortest path routing problem in communication systems. Reverse auction can be used to design incentive mechanism in the participatory sensing network. Coalitional activity can be used to analyze the cooperative relay networks. By learning this course, students should have deep understanding on these theoretic analysis methods and have the capability of using these methods to mathematically model and analyze various interactive problems in communication systems. All of these are assessed in assignments, presentations and projects.
