Geometric and Probabilistic Constellation Shaping via end-to-end Learning

Description

Supervisor:

Geometric and Probabilistic Constellation Shaping via end-to-end Learning

Description

When designing constellations, both the locations and probability of occurrence of the points can be optimized. These approaches are referred to as geometric and probabilistic shaping, respectively.

The papers [1], [2], [3] explain how this optimization can be performed with a trainable autoencoder structure.

 

The seminar consists in understanding and summarizing the history of this topic.
