Learners enrolled: 917
ABOUT THE COURSE :
Signal estimation theory provides a wide variety of tools and techniques which form the basis for several key applications in modern wireless communications and signal processing. Various signal processing procedures in communication systems such as channel estimation, equalization, synchronization etc, which are also employed in MIMO-OFDM based 3G/ 4G wireless systems, are based on fundamental concepts in estimation theory. Further, recent research developments in areas such as wireless sensor networks also employ several tools from estimation theory towards distributed parameter estimation etc. Therefore, principles of estimation are naturally of a significant interest in research and industry. A clear grasp of the basic principles of estimation can significantly enhance understanding by providing deeper insights into various techniques in signal processing and communication. Beginning with a brief overview of the basic concepts of maximum likelihood (ML) and Least Squares Estimation (LS), this course will comprehensively cover several applications of estimation theory in wireless communications such as channel estimation, equalization, MIMO, OFDM. Further, we will also cover Bayesian Estimation, MMSE, LMMSE principles.

Instructor bio

Prof. Aditya K. Jagannatham

IIT Kanpur
Prof. Aditya K. Jagannatham received his Bachelors degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of California, San Diego, U.S.A. From April '07 to May'09 he was employed as a senior wireless systems engineer at Qualcomm Inc., San Diego, California, where he was a part of the Qualcomm CDMA technologies (QCT) division. His research interests are in the area of next-generation wireless cellular and WiFi networks, with special emphasis on various 5G technologies such as massive MIMO, mmWave MIMO, FBMC, NOMA, Full Duplex and others. He has contributed to the 802.11n high throughput wireless LAN standard and has published extensively in leading international journals and conferences. He was awarded the CAL(IT)2 fellowship at the University of California San Diego and the Upendra Patel Achievement Award at Qualcomm.

He is currently a Professor in the Electrical Engineering department at IIT Kanpur, where he holds the Arun Kumar Chair Professorship, and is also associated with the BSNL-IITK Telecom Center of Excellence(BITCOE). He has been twice awarded the P.K. Kelkar Young Faculty Research Fellowship for excellence in research, the Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship (QInF) and the IIT Kanpur Excellence in Teaching Award. His popular video lectures for the NPTEL(National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning) course on Advanced 3G and 4G Wireless Mobile Communications can found at the following YouTube link ( NPTEL 3G/4G ). He has also successfully conducted several Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) on various topics such as Applied Game Theory, MIMO OFDM Wireless Systems, Probability and Random Processes, Signals and Systems, Principles of Communication Systems, which have been widely adopted and appreciated. A book authored by him titled Principles of Modern Wireless Communications Systems has been published by McGraw Hill Education and comprehensively covers several key aspects of modern wireless technologies.
