IEEE Information Theory & Comm. Society Best Paper award to Professor Suhas Diggavi and Co-authors
Professor Suhas Diggavi and co-authors, A. Salman Avestimehr and David N.C. Tse, received a 2013 Joint Paper Award from IEEE Communications Society and Information Theory Society for their journal article entitled, “Wireless Network Information Flow: A Deterministic Approach.” The article was published in the IEEE Transactions in Information Theory in April 2011.
The research focuses on the maximum rate of information flow achievable in a wireless network with a single source and multiple destinations and an arbitrary noisy wireless network. It demonstrates an approximate max-flow min-cut result that extends the classical results to noisy wireless networks. Underlying this result is a deterministic approximation approach to analysis and design of wireless communication networks.
"The Joint Information Theory Society and Communication Society Paper Award honors outstanding papers published in branches of information and communication theory. Papers published in the past three calendar years in any journal of the Information Theory Society or the Communications Society are eligible for this award".
