Ph.D. Princeton University, 1964
Communication Theory and Systems
Lugannani was a member of the technical staff at Bell Laboratories from
1964-1970; Visiting Associate Professor at Princeton University from
1970-1972; and Professor at UC San Diego from 1972-present. Professor
Lugannani's technical contributions include: studies of structural properties
(limit theorems, sample function regularity, characterizations of independence)
of linear processes; numerical techniques for evaluating distributions and
densities of linear processes and quadratic forms in Gaussian variables.
System modeling and analysis; structural properties of random processes;
characterization of random channels-the optical channel; numerical
evaluation of probability distributions and densities.
