In many multiuser wireless communications, good feedback of channel state information (CSI) is a crucial ingredient that facilitates improved performance. While being useful, perfect feedback is generally hard and time-consuming to obtain. With this challenge as a starting point, in this talk we will address the simple yet elusive and fundamental question of ``HOW MUCH QUALITY of CSI feedback, AND WHEN, must one send to achieve a certain degrees-of-freedom (DoF) performance in specific settings of multiuser communications''.
