Principle Shift: From Bit to Structure
Due to the issues of complex uncertainty in wireless communications, conventional approaches with bit as a processing unit are susceptible to the marginal effect of system capacity. Radically innovative processing methods are necessary to the sustained advancements of wireless communications. In this chapter, the limitations of the bit representation are first analyzed. Inspired by other fields, a structural perspective is opened up to stimulate an intermediate-level representation. In this way, we aim to find a representation to better describe the complex statistical properties in wireless communications and to develop reasonable processing methods to cope with the issues of complex uncertainty.
