On July 20, 2018, Frans Willems gave an invited talk in the 2018 Munich Doctoral Seminar on Communications (MSC) entitled “Enumerative Source Coding and Shaping”.

Mission

We are an academic research group in the Signal Processing Systems Group (Department of Electrical Engineering) at Eindhoven University of Technology in The Netherlands. Our main research interest is in information and communication theory, and its applications. Our mission is to study information processing in a broad sense…

History

In 1972 J.P.M. (Piet) Schalkwijk was appointed as full professor in the field of Information Theory in the Electrical Engineering Department at Eindhoven University of Technology. Together with his staff (Joop de Brouwer, Jan Rooijackers, and Han Vinck) Piet Schalkwijk founded the Informatie en Communicatietheorie Group (EI)…

This project studies fundamental questions regarding data transmission in the nonlinear optical channel, including for example, the maximum amount of information that optical fibres can carry in the highly nonlinear regime.

Read more

The project studies multi-dimensional modulation formats to increase the capacity of optical communication systems based on an information-theoretic approach.

Read more

The project studies accurate channel models for the nonlinear optical channel in the high-power regime and novel coded modulation transceivers tailored to the nonlinear optical channel.

SILIKA is a European funded Marie Curie project that started September 1, 2016, with partners from Sweden, Belgium and the Netherlands. Its main purpose is to train 12 young researchers (PhD students) to become experts in key technologies for future mobile telecommunication systems. Throughout the training programme, the PhD students will each work on an individual research topic that is of high relevance for the successful development of the next generation mobile telecommunication system (5G).
