The Multimedia Communications Laboratory (MCL) is affiliated with the
Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Texas at
Dallas. The central theme of our research is
information theory, coding theory, and signal processing, and their application to problems in the area of communication and in particular wireless communication. If you are a student with solid mathematical background and strong interest in our areas of research, and wish to be considered for a position in this be for your PhD studies, please follow this link for more
Assistantships are available on an intermittent basis for
highly qualified applicants. Please follow the link for more information.
Group Meetings and Seminars
We have regular group meetings that are open to all interested
parties. If you are interested in joinging MCL, we invite you to
participate in our group meetings and learn more about our activities
Some Recent Discoveries
Some of the best-peforming medium and short-length LDPC codes in the literature, see here and here and also here for its application to relay channels.
Analysis of various linear receivers, among them settling several long-standing open problems in the area of diversity of MMSE receivers and precoders. See for example here and here and here and here .
Providing a detailed understanding of the tradeoff between diversity in cognitive networks and the magnitude of the interference they cause on the primary. See here and here. Also relay beamforming for cognitive networks, see here.
Broadcast (downlink) performance when users have varying coherence intervals. See here.
Optimality of lattice codes for the point-to-point fast-fading (ergodic) channels (Manuscript coming soon).
Analysis of channel-coded space-time signaling in correlated Rayleigh and Rician channels
Includes public domain software for JPEG post-processing.
We are very proud of the MCL alumni, all of whom have quickly moved on
to successful and productive professional careers. They keep in touch
with the MCL and act as a source of inspiration for our newer
students. We wish them even more success in the years to come.
