Looks like we won't make it to the
Optimisation Theory and LP material this year -
I will wrap up on Monday 29th Nov
with last part of Traffic Management,
and an overview of what I've covered.
That will be the last lecture for Principles of Communications.
Students that are very keen can read the slide-ware on Optimisation and on LP - I am happy to answer questions on it too.
Students interested in the lower levels of physical/link layer may want to take the Digital SIgnal Processing course by Markus Kuhn next term (see here. Students interested in networking performance (and systems in general) may well want to go to Richard GIbbens' course on Computer Systems Modelling which covers a number of these topics in more theoretical depth. If really keen, please sign up for the new Part III, which will be running next year.
Note that next year, Information theory will be taught separately (again), which may make the amount of theory material in PrincComm slightly more tractable.
