5G and next generation chaos-based wireless communication - (studied by distance learning)

Department of Physics

About the Project

This PhD project tackles scientific issues aimed at creating and laying the mathematical foundations for a 5G-like wireless communication system and their future generations fully reliant on chaotic based signals. This PhD project will be separated in 2 main scientific challenges. The first challenge will be to determine optimal network configurations and their performance for the uplink (users to base stations) and downlink (base station to the users) communication. The second challenge will be to integrate to this communication system smart data analytics so to allow that information that arrives to the receiver is already processed and analysed by AI approches. This would pave the way for a next generation intelligent network communication, where information being transmitted is already pre-analysed on the run during transmission.

Candidates should have (or expect to achieve) a UK honours degree at 2.1 or above (or equivalent) in Natural and Computing Sciences, Mathematics, or Engineering.

Preference will be given for students who have also expertise in one or more of the following topics: Communication systems, theory of nonlinear systems, Information theory, machine learning methods.
