Research at WiSe-Net Lab!

Mathematical foundations of communications was formally established in 1948 by Claude Shannon. His famous channel capacity concept was topic of major research efforts around the world in the quest for finding a capacity achieving code for reliable communication over noisy channels. The breakthrough happened in 1993, when Claude Berrou and Alan Glavieux introduced Turbo-codes at ICC conference in Geneva. Turbo-codes, being capable of performing very close to Shannon limit, enable new applications in communications and are used in the next generation of high speed wireless systems. In the recent years, with advancement in computing, another class of codes called LDPC codes were re-introduced (originally introduced in 1960s) that are capable of performing close to channel capacity. Performance evaluation of these high performance codes, created a challenge for researchers in communications area. Imagine how many bits are required to pass through a system model to provide a fairly accurate estimate of bit error rate (BER). Conventional methods such as Monte-Carlo simulation, proved to be extremely time consuming and impractical for evaluating performance of these new classes of capacity achieving codes. Therefore, a new wave in research focused on analytical performance evaluations and simplified or more efficient simulation techniques was created. This was started with finding performance bounds and then evolved into analytical methods relating the code weight distribution to the probability density of log-likelihood-ratio, and finally to the BER performance of the code. Research at WiSe-Net lab deals with analytical performance evaluation of high performance codes as motivated above, with several sub-directions including performance evaluation of wireless sensor networks, broadband wireless communications systems, and applying the coding and information theory concepts into network of passive sensors. Applications of these works are demonstrated in Space and Bio-medical fields.
