Group Seminar – Structured Interference Management: Fundamentals And Algorithms – Xinping Yi


This talk entitled “Structured Interference Management: Fundamentals and Algorithms” will be presented by Dr. Xinping Yi, research and teaching associate at Technische University Berlin. It will take place in Amphitheater Chappe on the 19th of October.


In the future large-scale wireless internet of things, spectrum sharing calls for interference management techniques with low-complexity, low signaling overhead and flexible scalability. A pragmatic strategy is to focus on the underlying interference networks, exploiting the structural property of network topologies and the optimality of the simplest techniques of practical interest. In this talk, we focus on the fundamentals and algorithms of two practical interference management techniques — Treating Interference as Noise (TIN) and Topological Interference Management (TIM). The fundamental structural properties for their information-theoretic optimality in terms of (generalized) Degrees-of-Freedom (DoF) are revealed. The insights are also translated into the principles of algorithm design for spectrum sharing mechanisms in device-to-device communications, and edge caching in Fog-RAN under the TIM setting.


Xinping Yi has been a postdoctoral research associate in Technical University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany, since November 2014. He joined EURECOM, Sophia Antipolis, France in 2011 and received his Ph.D. degree from Telecom ParisTech, Paris, France, in October 2014. From 2009 to 2011, he was a research engineer at Huawei Technologies, Shenzhen, China. His research interests include information theory, signal processing, and machine learning, as well as their applications in wireless communications, content delivery networks and data analytics. X. Yi was a recipient of the 2014 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Students Abroad.
