Prof. Sergio Verdú, Princeton University, USA
Sergio Verdú received the Telecommunications Engineering degree from the Polytechnic University of Barcelona. His Ph.D. degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign pioneered the field of Multiuser Detection. He is currently a Professor of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University. In 1998, Cambridge University Press published his book ``Multiuser Detection.'' Several of his papers have received international awards. Sergio Verdú has served as Associate Editor of the IEEE Trans. on Automatic Control and the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory. He became Fellow of the IEEE in 1993. He was member of the IEEE Information Theory Society Board of Governors in 1989-1999 and President of the IEEE Information Theory Society in 1997.
Multiuser Detection deals with the demodulation of mutually interfering digital streams of information. Cellular telephony, satellite communication, high-speed data transmission lines, digital radio/television broadcasting, fixed wireless local loops, and multitrack magnetic recording are some of the communication systems subject to multiaccess interference. Multiuser Detection exploits the considerable structure of the multiuser interference in order to increase the efficiency with which channel resources are employed. This course is based on a book with the same title by the author. Topics that will be discussed are: multiuser communication, Code-Division Multiple-Access channels, single-user matched filtering, linear and optimal multiuser receivers, successive cancellation, and capacity/complexity of CDMA.
