Congratulation to Tsang-Kai Chang his gruaduation topic: Stability Analysis of Random Access Systems with Imperfect Sensing Topology received Best Thesis Award.
Our research area focuses on two parts
Our lab focuses on the research of Large Networks. Networks are composed of collections of items with relationships. Most networks can be characterized by their topology; however, for large networks, their topologies may be too complicated to be understood or their size may be to large such that complete description of their topologies is utterly impossible through relatively limited sensing. Friendship in social networks, big data via sensing or cognition, and transmission capacity in wireless communication networks are common examples. This fact drive us to characterize large networks by local descriptions, and thus, with only locally sensed or sampled data, we wish to understand, to optimize, to infer, or even to design/control the large networks. Our research includes identifying satisfactory mathematical model of networks, and further deriving control intuition on networks. To be more explicit, we summarize our research by two major directions: large wireless communication networks and large information networks.
