NPTEL: Bayesian/ MMSE Estimation for MIMO/OFDM Wireless Communications

 with  Aditya K. Jagannatham
Digital Marketing Certificate
Cornell University via eCornell

Bayesian or Minimum Mean Squared Error (MMSE) estimation incorporates prior information for the parameter to be estimated and hence yields an improved estimation performance. It also has significant practical applications in MIMO-OFDM based 3G/ 4G wireless systems for channel estimation, equalization as well as in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) and cognitive radio systems. 
This is a sequel course in estimation and will cover the Bayesian i.e. Minimum Mean Squared Error (MMSE) framework for estimation and applications to MIMO/ OFDM wireless communications. However, it is NOT necessary for the student to have done the previous course as all the topics will be covered starting from the fundamentals. Thus students can independently do this course without knowledge of the previous course on Maximum Likelihood (ML) estimation.

FAQ View All
What are MOOCs?
MOOCs stand for Massive Open Online Courses. These are free online courses from universities around the world (eg. Stanford Harvard MIT) offered to anyone with an internet connection.
How do I register?
To register for a course, click on "Go to Class" button on the course page. This will take you to the providers website where you can register for the course.
How do these MOOCs or free online courses work?
MOOCs are designed for an online audience, teaching primarily through short (5-20 min.) pre recorded video lectures, that you watch on weekly schedule when convenient for you.  They also have student discussion forums, homework/assignments, and online quizzes or exams.
