BIMoS Day "The Mathematics of Multiple Antenna Communications"

by Prof. Dr. Guiseppe Caire (FU Berlin)

November 19th, 2018 (16:15 - 18:00)

H 2036, TU Berlin Main Building, Straße des 17. Juni 13, 10623 Berlin


16:15 - 17:00 

Multiple-Input Multiple Output (MIMO) communications obtained by using multiple antennas at transmitters and receivers has become the backbone of modern wireless communication systems, such as WiFi (IEEE 802.11ac), LTE, and the forthcoming 5th Generation. The propagation channel between antenna arrays can be modeled as a matrix of random coefficients. Transmit and receive techniques hinge critically
on the ability of estimating such matrices, and using such knowledge to compute transmit precoders and receivers, able to exploit the inherent interference of the multiple antennas.

17:15 - 17:45 

A surprisingly involved set of mathematical tools have turned out to be very useful for such estimation, precoding, and decoding algorthms. In particular, asymptotic random matrix theory, compressed sensing, and tools from statistical physics, have been widely used to design and analyze efficient and powerful algorithms,  which are now implemented in some form in practical systems. This BIMoS day is dedicated to illuminate the applications of such mathematical tools, in the framework of the recent research conducted at the Communications and Information Theory (CommIT) chair of TU Berlin.


BIMoS Day "Geometric Modelling with Discrete Differential Geometry"

by Prof. Dr. Alexander Bobenko (FU Berlin)

January 21, 2018 (16:15 - 18:00)

"Discrete conformal maps and surface optimization in architecture"  Mathematical tools from discrete differential geometry have become increasingly important in architectural applications over the last 10 years. Variational problems are the key ingredient to attack problems encountered in free-form architecture. We will explain the use of discrete conformal maps in combination with discrete surface optimization to create gridshell structures for given architectural designs and optimized patterns on a periodic facade.

"Designing with Nets of Inextensible Rods"

Many manufactured materials are built from (nearly) inextensible, but flexible, rods formed into a grid that then behaves as a shell-like structure. Everyday examples range from fabrics made of 1000s of interwoven yarns; to tea strainers made of 100s of plastically deforming wires; to architectural gridshells and tents made of 10s of elastic rods. In this talk, we will emphasize the geometric similarity between these systems, by using a model for woven fabric introduced by Pafnuty Chebyshev in 1878. We will see how computational design and fabrication of these systems can be achieved by harnessing the approach of discrete differential geometry.
