EDGE (525 words)
EDGE aims to encourage and facilitate research and training in major areas of differential geometry, which is a vibrant and central topic in pure mathematics today.
A significant theme which unites the areas that are the subject of this endeavour is the interface with other disciplines, both pure (topology, algebraic geometry) and applied (mathematical physics, especially gauge theory and string theory).
The members of EDGE are geometers in mathematical centres spreading among most European countries.
Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1142 words)
EDGE (also known as EGPRS) is a superset to GPRS and can function on any network with GPRS deployed on it, provided the carrier implements the necessary upgrades.
EDGE, like GPRS, uses a rate adaptation algorithm that adapts the modulation and coding scheme (MCS) according to the quality of the radio channel, and thus the bit rate and robustness of data transmission.
EDGE can carry data speeds up to 236.8 kbit/s for 4 timeslots (theoretical maximum is 473.6 kbit/s for 8 timeslots) in packet mode and will therefore meet the International Telecommunications Union's requirement for a 3G network, and has been accepted by the ITU as part of the IMT-2000 family of 3G standards.
