(1) We have a new paper lead by my student Ce Zheng accepted for IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) 2020:
Ce Zheng, Malcolm Egan, Laurent Clavier, Troels Pedersen and Jean-Marie Gorce, “Linear combining in dependent alpha-stable noise,” Proc. IEEE ICC, 2020. Available here.
(2) We also have two new preprints continuing our work impulsive interference modelling in the IoT.
The first paper is concerned with statistical analysis of a measurement campaign in Aalborg, where we show strong evidence for heavy tails. While this has long been expected from theory, it appears to be the first empirical study of this phenomenon.
Laurent Clavier, Troels Pedersen, Ignacio Rodriguez, Mads Lauridsen and Malcolm Egan, “Experimental evidence for heavy tailed interference in the IoT,” 2020. Available here.
The second paper is concerned with interference modelling in NB-IoT type scenarios, where devices transmit on multiple subbands. This leads to multivariate statistical models with nontrivial dependence structures. We deal with this problem using a combination of alpha-stable and copula models.

This work builds on our previous paper from ICC 2019:
Ce Zheng, Malcolm Egan, Laurent Clavier, Gareth Peters and Jean-Marie Gorce, “Copula-based interference models for IoT wireless networks,” Proc. IEEE ICC, 2019. Available here.
(3) With my postdoc Bayram Akdeniz, we have a new paper accepted in IEEE Transactions on Molecular, Biological and Multi-Scale Communications:
Bayram Akdeniz and Malcolm Egan, “A reactive signalling approach to ensure coexistence between molecular communication and external biochemical systems,” IEEE Transactions on Molecular, Biological and Multi-Scale Communications, In press, 2020. Available here.
This work studies the problem of coexistence in molecular communication from a more practical signalling point of view. Our previous work introducing the problem of coexistence can be found in:
Malcolm Egan, Valeria Loscri, Trung Q. Duong and Marco Di Renzo, “Strategies for coexistence in molecular communication,” IEEE Transactions on NanoBioscience, vol. 19, no. 1, pp. 51-60, 2019. Available here.
Malcolm Egan, Trang Mai, Trung Q. Duong and Marco Di Renzo, “Coexistence in molecular communications,” Nano Communication Networks, vol. 16, pp. 37-44, 2018. Available here.
(4) With Bayram Akdeniz and Bao Tang, we have also introduced a new signalling scheme for molecular communications. This scheme has a desirable property of being highly robust to uncertainty in the geometry of the system, exploiting the equilibrium theory of stochastic reaction-diffusion systems. A preprint of this work is now online:
