Multiple description data compression
Principal investigator: Suhas Diggavi
Sponsor: Swiss national science foundation NCCR-MICS
Supported student: Soheil Mohajer
Project timeline: 2005-2009
Project synopsis: Investigation of network data compression, in particular multiple description data compression. This work resulted in an approximate characterization (within one bit) of the Gaussian multiple description problem, which has been open for the past 30 years. This project was a part of a more comprehensive work on this topic, and more details can be found here.
