Early this summer an outstanding graduate student in the department was recruited to participate in the project, and work on the proposed research is well underway. As we are in the start-up phase of the research, expenditures against the grant are only now beginning to accumulate. The substantial initial summer effort of the Principal Investigator on the project was funded entirely through a career development chair appointment, while the initial summer effort of the graduate student was funded through a fellowship. The student is now being and will continue to be fully supported by this grant. There are several components to the extensive research underway. In one component, we are developing new and extremely promising bandwidth-efficient temporal diversity strategies for single- and multi-user wireless communication in time-selective multipath fading environments. Both frequency selective and frequency nonselective channels are begin considered. Another component of the research in progress is exploring the use of nonlinear dynamics and chaos in the design of error-correcting codes for communications applications. Finally, we are exploring the potential and limitations of advanced blind equalization techniques in current and next-generation communication systems.
