Mismatched decoding

Séminaire le 22 Octobre 2015, 11h00 à CentraleSupelec (Gif-sur-Yvette) Salle du conseil du L2S - B4.40
Dr. Guillen i Fabregas

This talk will review the mismatched decoding problem. In particular, the talk will review the fundamental limits of mismatched channel-decoder pairs in a point-to-point setup, with particular focus on random coding ensembles, achievable information rates and the corresponding error exponents.
