About ComSoc

Full duplex communications supporting concurrent transmission and reception in a single time/frequency channel has the potential of improving the attainable spectral efficiency and throughput by a factor of two. However, implementing full duplex communications has not been possible due to the large power difference at the receiver between the self-interference, imposed by the device’s own transmission, and the signal of interest received from a remote peer. In a typical cellular or wireless local area arrangement, this power difference can be as high as 70-80 dB or larger.

The scope of the present emerging technology initiative is to develop self-interference cancellation and mitigation techniques and to develop technology enablers and associated physical layer and medium access control layer algorithms and radio resource management techniques that facilitate full duplex communications in the next generation of wireless systems and, when applicable, in wireline networks.

Best Readings in Polar Coding

In this Best Readings, we summarize several papers on the theoretical foundations of polarization theory, the construction and decoding of practical polar codes, as well as some generalized polar codes, which can help to overcome limitations of classical Arıkan polar codes. We also focus on practical implementation issues because, despite the simple structure of the encoding and decoding algorithms of polar codes, their practical implementation poses numerous challenges.
