Talk at UIUC: "Writing on Tiny Paper"

I'll be giving a seminar next Monday, April 5, at UIUC. Thanks to Todd for the invite. Here are the title and abstract:

Writing on tiny paper: Towards information-theoretic analysis of molecular communication

In molecular communication, messages are transmitted as a pattern of molecules propagating from a transmitter to a receiver. This form of communication is useful where electromagnetic communication is impractical, such as in a lab-on-chip device. In this talk, we review current approaches to molecular communication. We also present some of our own results on modelling and analyzing these channels from an information-theoretic perspective, looking at molecular channels both as timing channels and as mass-transport channels.
