The past two decades have experienced many breakthrough technologies in wireless communications. The dimension and complexity of wireless systems have increased and evolved dramatically, which brings challenges in the performance analysis and transceiver designs. This two-part seminar is to review and summarize some fundamental mathematical concepts and techniques for wireless communications research, especially for multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) and massive MIMO systems. The first part is on circularly symmetric complex Gaussian matrix. It covers 1) the description of real-valued and complex-valued random variable, random vector, and random matrix; 2) circularly symmetric complex Gaussian random matrix and Wishart matrix; and 3) MIMO applications. The second part is on convergence and related asymptotic analytical methods for massive MIMO. It covers 1) convergence for deterministic scalar/matrix sequence; 2) convergence for random scalar/matrix sequence; and 3) some methods for massive MIMO performance analysis.
Yindi Jing received the B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees in automatic control from the University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei, China, in 1996 and 1999, respectively. She received the M.Sc. degree and the Ph.D. in electrical engineering from California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA, in 2000 and 2004, respectively. From October 2004 to August 2005, she was a postdoctoral scholar at the Department of Electrical Engineering of California Institute of Technology. From February 2006 to June 2008, she was a postdoctoral scholar at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the University of California, Irvine. In 2008, she joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the University of Alberta, where she is currently a professor.
he was an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications 2011-2016 and currently serves as a Senior Area Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Letters. She has been a member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society Signal Processing for Communications and Networking (SPCOM) Technical Committee since 2015 and a member of the NSERC Discovery Grant Evaluation Group for Electrical and Computer Engineering since 2017.
