# Random matrix theory with applications

A new Ph.D. level course on **Random matrix theory with applications** will be offered by Communication systems/ISY during the fall semester 2015.

## Content

This course will provide a comprehensive introduction to random matrix theory and its applications. The first part will give a theoretical background of large dimensional random matrix theory. The second part will present some applications to wireless communications and signal processing.

The course will consist of 8 lectures and 4 homework sessions. In total, there will be 12 sessions divided in two parts:

1. Theory: random matrix theory (6 sessions)

2. Applications: wireless communications and signal processing (6 sessions)

The course is open to students enrolled in a Ph.D. program at Linköping University/ISY. External participants upon request. **If you have interest to participate, please register by sending an email, by September 8, 2015.**

The lecture starts on **Tuesday, September 15, 2015, at 10:00 in Algoritmen/ISY. **
