Prof. Brian L. Evans
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Robert and Jane Mitchell Faculty Fellow Prof. Evans is an IEEE Fellow "for contributions to multicarrier communications and image display". In multicarrier communications, his group developed the first linear complexity algorithm that allocates resources to optimize bit rates in multiuser wireless systems (for cellular and WiMax basestations) and is realizable in fixed-point hardware/software. His group also developed the first ADSL equalizer training method that maximizes a measure of bit rate and is realizable in real-time fixed-point software. In image display, his group's primary contribution is in design, analysis, and quality assessment of image halftoning by error diffusion for real-time processing by printers. He has published over 180 refereed journal and conference papers.
