Fundamentals of Communication Systems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Communication Systems Engineering, 2nd edition, offers comprehensive coverage of the basic principles in the analysis and design of modern communication systems, and review of important mathematical foundation topics. This new edition of Communication Systems Engineering exposes the reader to relevant topics from digital communication system principles including, source coding, channel coding, baseband and carrier modulation, channel distortion, channel equalization, synchronization, and wireless communications. New content changes for the second edition include:
  • Coverage of the JPEG standard for image compression
  • Coverage of OFDM and multicarrier modulation
  • Coverage of Turbo codes, product codes, the BCJR algorithm, and iterative codes
  • A chapter on wireless communications (including new material on GSM and the IS-95 CDMA standard, as well as multiple antenna systems and space-time codes)

Synopsis:

For a one/two-semester senior or first-year graduate level course in analog and digital communications. This text is also a suitable reference for electrical engineers for all basic relevant topics in digital communication system design.

With an emphasis on digital communications, Communication Systems Engineering, introduces the basic principles underlying the analysis and design of communication systems. In addition, this text gives a solid introduction to analog communications and a review of important mathematical foundation topics.
