Prof. Dr. Barbara Grabowski

[updated 01.04.2003]
Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and eLearning (5306)
Learning outcomes:
Students will be taught the stochastic methods frequently applied in technical implementations of communications systems. They will be able to apply these methods to signal transmission (optimum coding problems) and to the optimization of communications systems (performance analysis, system stability).
