Description

Sensor networks are particularly versatile for a wide variety of estimation tasks. Due to the nature of communication in a shared wireless medium, these sensors must operate in the presence of other co-located networks, which may have competing, conflicting, and even adversarial objectives. This effort focuses on the development of the fundamental mathematics necessary to analyze the behavior of networks in contested environments. Security for dynamically changing networks is of interest. Research areas include but are not limited to optimization theory, information theory, detection/estimation theory, and game theory. Development of new cryptographic techniques is not of interest under this research opportunity.
