报告概要:In this presentation, the speaker will briefly introduce the majoraspects of NSF CREST Research Center at TSU in the research of energy efficientwireless sensor networks, the unban transportation environmental networks anddistributed computational networks, and in the education and the technologytransform components. The presentation will also include Center’s management,and its concentration on the science, technology, engineering and mathematics(STEM) education programs, as well as its measurement of success. As a showcaseof research accomplishments, the speaker will present two recent mathematical researchresults. One is in bandwidth adaptation of wireless networksby using networkreversible process property. This research verifies the mathematicalproduct-form solution of whole wireless network and further reveals theimportance of single-cell research in wireless networks. Another research is incall admission control based billing strategies by using the method of Markovdecision process. This research verifies the optimal admission threshold policyfor new generated data and then provides a novel method in resolving dynamicoptimal problems in wireless networks. As a potential collaboration withrelatedscholars, the speaker will discuss a few challenging problems in the areaswhich may need to be paid attention in the near future. Finally, the speakerwill present on how the current research be linked to the short range wireless communicationsfor connected vehicle to vehicle networks.
