- 802.11x multi-packet distributed networks using multi-antenna systems. Application of stochastic geometry to asymmetric peer-to-peer wireless networks. Millimeter-wave communication in 5G systems. Non-orthogonal multiple access for satellite and 5G networks. Ranging techniques in cellular systems. Quality of service in WiFi networks: adaptive retransmission for audio/video services. Development of hybrid discrete-time discrete-event network simulators (Matlab-ns2, Octave-ns2).
- Algorithms for the synthesis of the radiation pattern for conformal arrays of antennas in presence of multiple requirements: far and near electric field, dynamic range ratio of the excitations, control of the polarization, minimization of the power on the side lobes. Geometrical synthesis of sparse arrays with arbitrary geometry. Electronic beam scanning and reconfigurable arrays. Antenna arrays for satellite applications. Fractal antennas. Interaction between electromagnetic fields and relativistic electrons, linear accelerators and FEL (Free Electron Lasers).
- Communication reliability: development of efficient coding techniques (turbo-like, LDPC) and mathematical tools for the design capacity-approaching codes. Security of communications: di Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) protocols based on classic error correcting codes.
- Methods for the solution of complex optimization problems, and artificial intelligence.
