The Worst 6 Day of My Professional Engineering Life, or, How I Learned to Love Multipath Propagation

August 6, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

A very interesting presentation for engineers something that can be used as a learning lesson. This presentation tells two interwoven stories — an examination of the technical problem of correcting for the ill-effects of multipath propagation in high-rate communications systems, and the travails, and embarrassing mistakes, of a young engineer charged with finding a practical solution to the problem. Even though the technical work reported in this talk is more than thirty years old, the algorithms developed then are still in active use in the very most modern radio and optical fiber transmission systems.
