The EECS Department welcomes Natasha Devroye of the University Illinois at Chicago.
Prof. Devroye will speak on Wednesday May 30 at 2 p.m. in L324 in the Technological Institute
Abstract: In multi-user two-way channels nodes are both sources and destinations of messages. This allows for ``adaptation'' at or ``interaction'' between the nodes -- the next channel inputs may be a function of the past received signals at a particular node. How to best adapt is key to two-way communication problems, rendering them complex and challenging. However, examples exist of channels where adaptation is not beneficial from a capacity perspective; it is known that for the point-to-point two-way modulo 2 adder and Gaussian channels, adaptation does not increase capacity. We demonstrate several deterministic multi-user two-way channel models where adaptation is useless and remark on extensions to noisy two-way Gaussian interference channels.
