Respondents should be aware that notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information if it does not display a currently valid 0MB control number. In this project of Information-theory and Optimization of Networked Systems (IONS), we developed the approaches of geometric programming, information-control duality, erasure information, and stochastic network optimization for communication networks. Pathfinder applications to missile defense, telecommunications, and biological networks are studied. Several major awards were received by the team of co-PIs, including Shannon Award, IEEE Hamming Medal, Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, and Technology Review TR35 Young Innovator Award.
