Thesis seminar by Christopher S. Chang in Department of Electrical Engineering

In the field of network communication, many researchers have dedicated their best efforts to find the limits of performance and to improve the system performance in theory and practice. This thesis presents a comprehensive investigation on various objectives in communication system with novel designs and analyses based on coding approach. The applications of our coding-based research include fast Peer-to-Peer file distribution, privacy-guaranteed anonymous communication, robust network construction under uncertainty, and prioritized transmission. Our coding-based investigation provides fundamental studies on important issues in network communications and suggests practical solutions based on the analyses.

Advisers: Professor M. Effros and Professor T. Ho
