Thesis title: Fundamental Limits of Coded Caching in Wireless Networks
Thesis abstract: Caching, i.e. storing popular contents at caches available at end users, has received a signi cant interest as a technique to reduce the peak trafic in wireless networks. In particular, coded caching proposed by Maddah-Ali and Niesen has been considered as a promising approach to achieve a constant delivery time as the dimension grows, yielding a scalable system. Albeit conceptually appealing, several limitations prevent its straightforward applications in practical wireless systems. Throughout the thesis, we address the limitations of classical coded caching in various wireless channels. Then, we propose novel delivery schemes that exploit opportunistically the underlying wireless channels while preserving partly the promising gain of coded caching.
