• CARMA COLLOQUIUM
  • Speaker: Camilla Hollanti, Department of Mathematics, University of Turku
  • Title: An Algebraic Approach to Digital Broadcasting
  • Location: Room V129, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle
  • Time and Date: 4:00 pm, Thu, 26th May 2011
  • Abstract:

    The aim of this talk is to demonstrate how cyclic division algebras and their orders can be used to enhance wireless communications. This is done by embedding the information bits to be transmitted into smart algebraic structures, such as matrix representations of order lattices. We will recall the essential algebraic definitions and structures, and further familiarize the audience with the transmission model of fading channels. An example application of major current interest is digital video broadcasting. Examples suitable to this application will be provided.
