WCM611B Masterandapos;s Research Project II
Lead Faculty: Dr. Shekar Viswanathan
Two-month course, meets once a week.
A continuation of WCM 611A. Students complete the project including all required documentation and formally present their final product to a review panel for evaluation. Grading is H, S, or U only. Course is In Progress (IP) grade eligible.
- andlt;BRandgt;Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: andlt;ULandgt;andlt;LIandgt;Complete and submit the written project report.andlt;/LIandgt;andlt;LIandgt;Demonstrate both written and oral communication skills relevant to a focused research interest. andlt;/LIandgt;andlt;LIandgt;Develop the ability of critical and innovative ideas for current and future research areas.andamp; andlt;/LIandgt;andlt;LIandgt;Identify the needs and importance of the selected research topics for further development.andlt;/LIandgt;andlt;LIandgt;Gain sufficient hands-on training as a team member.andlt;/LIandgt;andlt;LIandgt;Construct a statistical model for signal analysis in communication area that allows to prove the model, describe the properties and apply in the real world problem.andlt;/LIandgt;andlt;LIandgt;Apply the concept of random variable function and the signal sampling techniques for estimation theory.andlt;/LIandgt;andlt;LIandgt;Design, implement, and test of wireless communication systems using the spread spectrum transmission and reception, CDMA and GSM principles.andlt;/LIandgt;andlt;LIandgt;Integrate the operation and protocols for simplex tone and data paging systems, WAP, WML, WLAN based IEEE 802.11b.andlt;/LIandgt;andlt;LIandgt;Utilize the different kinds of coding and decoding schemes used in wireless(Trellies coding, Turbo coding etc.), detection theory concepts: Bayesian approach to statistical inference, hypothesis testing and the Neyman-Pearson lemma, maximum likelihood decision rules, minimax decision rules, composite hypothesis testing, CFAR detection. andlt;/LIandgt;andlt;LIandgt;Implement Data Encryption Standard (DES), identification and authentication and public key systems.andlt;/LIandgt;andlt;LIandgt;Augment multiuser modulation and demodulation principles includingandamp; MAI, Chernoff and Bhattacharya bounds, etc.andlt;/LIandgt;andlt;LIandgt;Develop the ability of critical thinking and innovative ideas for current and future research in the area of Wireless Communication.andlt;/LIandgt;andlt;/ULandgt;
