The rapid evolution of wireless communication systems towards the 5th generation (5G) networks calls for new performance engineering approaches that are tailored for new transmission and medium access technology, heterogeneous and ultra-dense networks, and network and resource virtualization.
To this end, the research addresses mathematical models, analytical analysis, and efficient algorithms for network planning and configuration, resource allocation, mobility management, and performance evaluation, with objective aspects ranging from resource efficiency, quality of service, to energy consumption.
The research also aims at apply optimization as a tool in analyzing the performance limits of wireless communications.
