Self-organization is an approach for the autonomous and distributed control of systems that leads to the emergence of a global behavior without central planning. In communication networks, self-organization can be applied to improve the scalability of networks, to handle unforeseen situations, e.g. caused by disasters, to optimize its operation, to save energy and to reduce the operational expenses of networks.
The course introduces the fundamentals of self-organizing systems and methods.
