On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Understand the modelling of the array received signals for 1D, 2D and 3D arrays. Understand the fundaments concepts of beamforming techniques such as conventional, optimum and adaptive beamformers, Capon method, MSE based beamforming, LCMV beamformers
- Understand the fundamental concepts of source localisation techniques such as conventional techniques, subspace methods, i.e., MUSIC, Root- MUSIC, ESPRIT. Understand the concept of source detection techniques such as MDL and AIC methods.
- Develop a unified way of modelling the MIMO and mmWave channels using array processing concepts.
- Quantify the MIMO wireless channel capacities and degrees of freedom regions for different channel models, such as multiple access channels, broadcast channels, interference channels, etc.
- Understand the concepts of Maximum Likelihood Parameter Estimation techniques
