Dr. Lu Wei Receives NSF Grant
Dr. Lu Wei, an assistant professor of computer science, has been awarded $293,229 by the NSF for Collaborative Research: CNS Core: Small: Fundamentals of Ultra-Dense Wireless Networks with Generalized Repulsion
Project Overview: The project resides in the interdisciplinary area of electrical engineering, computer science, and mathematics. The goal of the project is to identify and study new strongly coupled point processes as a model to understand the optimal deployment of base stations/sensors in wireless networks. The motivation of the study was that the prevailing models in the literature are, mostly due to analytical tractability, based on independent point processes. The newly proposed point processes are able to characterize diverse nodal repulsion phenomena in ultra-dense wireless networks to improve the existing modeling and analysis framework of wireless networks with spatial randomness. The outcome of the project also has applications in other domains, such as in machine learning and data science, where the project results offer new algorithms for sampling, marginalization, conditioning, and other inference tasks.Read more here.
