0 Reviews
Written by internationally recognized leaders in the field, this volume presents complete, comprehensive, and modern coverage of the theory and practice of signal design and detection in digital communications. Based on the authors' vast industrial experience, it explores the basics as well as the state-of-the-art developments in both modulation and detection. Contains material found only in the most recent journal literature — e.g., the reliability and communication efficiency associated with various modulation-demodulation and optimum signal detection techniques; coding-decoding techniques to improve end-to-end system reliability and efficiency; the ultimate reliability and efficiency (thermodynamic limit) achievable by a digital communication system; the communication reliability and efficiency of various practical modulation-coding and demodulation-decoding techniques; and coded modulation. MARKETS: A reference for professionals and a text for graduate courses in modulation and detection theory in digital communications.
