Together with many advantages, mmWave and THz communications bring new challenges that require revisiting the conventional approaches to design and analyze wireless networks. The unique features of mmWave and THz signal propagation combined with the directionality of the links form a unique set of open research problems that were not as pressing at lower frequencies. In response, novel approaches, methods, and tools are needed to carefully model and evaluate the emerging mmWave and THz wireless systems.
This thesis is targeted at developing a comprehensive set of mathematical frameworks and simulation tools capable of accounting for the essential features of directionalmmWave and THz wireless systems. The formulated models are then applied for constructing the first-order performance estimations of mmWave and THz communications operation in prospective usage scenarios. Later, on top of analyzing the state-of-the-art approaches for buildingmmWave and THz systems, the new technological enhancements to the advanced wireless networks operating in these bands are evaluated. The contributed frameworks and tools can be extended to model and assess the further developments in mmWave and THz communications.
