Information Theory for Low-Latency Wireless Communications (LOLITA)

Start date: Mar 1, 2017, End date: Feb 28, 2022,

The majority of wireless connections in the fifth generation (5G) of wireless systems will most likely be originated by autonomous machines and devices rather than by the human-operated mobile terminals for which traditional broadband services are intended. It is thus expected that enhanced mobile-broadband services will be complemented by new services centered on machine-type communications (MTC) ...

Coherent Structures in Wall-bounded Turbulence (COTURB)

Start date: Feb 1, 2016, End date: Jan 31, 2021,

Turbulence is a multiscale phenomenon for which control efforts have often failed because the dimension of the attractor is large. However, kinetic energy and drag are controlled by relatively few slowly evolving large structures that sit on top of a multiscale cascade of smaller eddies. They are essentially single-scale phenomena whose evolution can be described using less information than for th ...
