The focus of the Chair for Communications Theory, which is led by Prof. Eduard A. Jorswieck, is on applied information and communications theory as well as on signal processing methods for modern information and communications technology. The research of the 2 faculties, 5 postdoctoral researchers and 15 research associates lies on the interface between fundamental theories and methods and their application in practical system analysis and design for future wireless communications systems. The methods and tools comprise statistical signal processing, network information theory, optimization theory and numerical programming, game and microeconomic theory, matrix analysis and inequalities (majorization, matrix-monotone functions). The application areas comprise 5G wireless technologies, cognitive radio, spectrum sharing, physical layer security, network coding, energy efficiency in wireless, massive MIMO, multi-cell multi-antenna systems.
Since 2008, the chair has supervised 10 PhD theses, more than 50 master theses, hosted 5 postdoctoral fellows, and published some ten books and book chapter contributions, more than 50 journal papers (mainly in IEEE transactions and journals), more than 120 conference papers (mainly in IEEE conferences and workshops). Members of the chair have actively contributed to conference and workshop organization as TPC chairs, TPC members, keynote speakers, as well as tutorial presenters. The most recent tutorial is on „The Path Towards 5G – Essential Technologies, Protocols and Tools for Enabling 5G Mobile Communications“ to be presented at IEEE ICC 2015, IEEE VTC 2015 spring, and European Wireless 2015.
The chair performs projects funded by regional, national and international funding agencies. It has been continuously contributing to a number of European research projects since the commencement of FP4. The group is involved in the DFG excellence cluster “Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden” (cfead) within the resilience and biological path. Furthermore, the group leads two sub-projects in the DFG collaborative research cluster “Highly Adaptive Energy-efficient Computing” (HAEC). Current staff of the chair has actively contributed to a number of European research projects, including MEDIAN, UCAN, PULSERS, PULSERS Phase II, EUWB, WINNER I+II, SAPHYRE, ACROPOLIS and DIWINE. The recent projects are on 5G wireless system design: namely the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) Program 5G Wireless and the German-Israeli foundation project Resource allocation techniques for future wireless communication networks.
