Extreme value theory (EVT) deals with the asymptotic distributions of the extremes (maximum or minimum) of a set of N random variables, as N grows large. EVT is a powerful tool to analyze the performance of generalized user selection in modern wireless
Communication systems. In this talk, we will provide an overview of EVT and its application to the performance of generalized user selection for multiuser traditional wireless and cognitive radio networks. Then, we will discuss the application of EVT to the secrecy performance of generalized user selection for multiuser wireless networks. We conclude this talk by discussing the opportunities of applying EVT to the study of the physical layer security of cognitive radio systems and wireless powered communication systems.
