The course focuses mostly on the design of transceivers for
communications engineering problems. The emphasis is on wireless
communication problems with transceivers with non-negligible computation
power. Typical applications include high rate transmission, like
cellular or wireless local loop type systems. Some low complexity
applications, like sensor networks may use simpler techniques than the
some considered in this course. We focus herein mostly to digital and
baseband (BB) processing from algorithm design and optimization perspectives.
