Project Proposals

(Interested student should contact Prof. H. Boche)

  • Solution of Shannon´s problem of monotonicity of entropy (Lately the problem could be solved positively with a very interesting proof technique. This technique could also be used for other problems and is an challenging topic for advanced and PhD students)
