讲座1

讲座题目:Convex Optimization

主讲人:Stephen P. Boyd教授

主持人:张平教授

时间:2018年5月31日(星期四)15:00-16:00

地点:北京邮电大学西土城校区教三 136会议室

Abstract:

     Convex optimization has emerged as a useful tool for applications that include data analysis and model fitting, resource allocation, engineering design, network design and optimization, finance, and control and signal processing.

     After an overview of the mathematics, algorithms, and software frameworks for convex optimization, we turn to common themes that arise across applications, such as sparsity and relaxation.

    We describe recent work on real-time embedded convex optimization, in which small problems are solved repeatedly in millisecond or microsecond time frames, and large-scale distributed convex optimization, in which many solvers are coordinated to solve enormous problems.

      Stephen P. Boyd is the Samsung Professor of Engineering, and Professor of Electrical Engineering in the Information Systems Laboratory at Stanford University. He has courtesy appointments in the Department of Management Science and Engineering and the Department of Computer Science, and is a member of the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering. His current research focus is on convex optimization applications in control, signal processing, machine learning, and finance.

     Professor Boyd received an AB degree in Mathematics, summa cum laude, from Harvard University in 1980, and a PhD in EECS from U. C. Berkeley in 1985. In 1985, he joined the faculty of Stanford's Electrical Engineering Department. He has held visiting Professor positions at Katholieke University (Leuven), McGill University (Montreal), Ecole Polytechnique Federale (Lausanne), Tsinghua University (Beijing), Universite Paul Sabatier (Toulouse), Royal Institute of Technology (Stockholm), Kyoto University, Harbin Institute of Technology, NYU, MIT, UC Berkeley, CUHK-Shenzhen, and IMT Lucca. He holds honorary doctorates from Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, and Catholic University of Louvain (UCL).

   Professor Boyd has received many awards and honors for his research in control systems engineering and optimization, including an ONR Young Investigator Award, a Presidential Young Investigator Award, and the AACC Donald P. Eckman Award. In 2013, he received the IEEE Control Systems Award, given for outstanding contributions to control systems engineering, science, or technology. In 2012, Michael Grant and he were given the Mathematical Optimization Society's Beale-Orchard-Hays Award, given every three years for excellence in computational mathematical programming. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, SIAM, and INFORMS, a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Control Systems Society, a member of the US National Academy of Engineering, and a foreign member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

 

讲座2

讲座题目:mmWave Distribution Networks (MDN)

主讲人:A.J. Paulraj教授

主持人:张平教授

时间:2018年5月31日(星期四)16:00-17:00

地点:北京邮电大学西土城校区教三 136会议室

Abstract:

    With increasing demand for dense gigabit speed backhaul and fronthaul in metros and with fiber remaining too expensive, there is increasing move to find wireless solutions. One ecosystem looking at this is mmWave Distribution Networks (MDN) that are loosely based on WiFi 11ad chipsets to build metro “Wireless Fiber” mesh networks. This talk will describe current eco-system, technology, trials, challenges and the obvious dilemmas.  802.11ay has now made MDN a use case and adding features to support it.

    Professor (Emeritus) Arogyaswami Paulraj joined Stanford University in 1991. In 1992 he proposed the MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) concept which is the key to today’s 4G cellular and WiFi wireless networks. Paulraj is the author of over 350 research papers, two textbooks and a co-inventor in 66 US patents. He is an ISI Thompson Highly Cited Researcher.

    Paulraj has won over a dozen awards in the US, notably the 2011 IEEE Alexander Graham Bell Medal and the 2014 Marconi Prize and Fellowship, both top awards for telecommunications technology pioneers. He is a fellow of eight national engineering/science academies including those in the US, China, India and Sweden. He is a fellow of IEEE and AAAS.

    In 1999, Paulraj founded Iospan Wireless Inc - which developed and established MIMOOFDMA wireless as the core 4G technology. Intel Corporation acquired Iospan in in 2003. In 2004, Paulraj co-founded Beceem Communications Inc. The company became the market leader in 4G-WiMAX semiconductor and was acquired by Broadcom Corp. in 2010.

    During his 30 years in the Indian (Navy) (1961-1991), he founded three national level laboratories in India and headed one of India’s most successful military R&D projects –APSOH sonar. He received over a dozen awards (many at the national level) in India including the Padma Bhushan.
