IEEE Series on Digital & Mobile Communication #20: Channel Equalization: From Concepts to Detailed Mathematicsby Gregory E. Bottomley
Synopses & Reviews
The most thorough, up-to-date reference on channel equalization—from basic concepts to complex modeling techniques
In today's instant-access society, a high premium is placed on information that can be stored and communicated effectively. As a result, storage densities and communications rates are being pushed to capacity, causing information symbols to interfere with one another. To help unclog pathways for the clearer conveyance of information, this book offers in-depth discussion of the significant contributions and future adaptability of channel equalization and a set of approaches for solving the problem of intersymbol interference (ISI). Chapter explorations in Channel Equalization include:
Unlike existing digital communications books that devote cursory attention to channel equalization, this invaluable guide addresses a crucial need by focusing solely on the background, current state, and future direction of this increasingly important technology. A unique mix of basic concepts and complex frameworks for delivering digitized data make Channel Equalization a valuable reference for all practicing wireless communication engineers and students dealing with the pressing demands of the information age.
Book News Annotation:
Veteran electrical engineer Bottomley shows how his textbook can be used to teach channel equalization to students ranging from advanced high school to graduate school. In each chapter, the basic idea is explained, then more detail added, sometimes using a little differential calculus and complex numbers. Then the mathematics is introduced in the same manner: simple then increasing in complexity. An example is then provided applying the idea to a cellular communications system. He covers matched filtering, zero-forcing decision feedback equalization, linear equalization, minimum mean-square error and maximum likelihood decision feedback equalization, maximum likelihood sequence detection, advanced topics, and practical considerations.

In the past, channel equalization was addressed as a single chapter in a digital communications textbook for graduate students. The area has developed and increased so significantly that there is now a need for an entire textbook devoted to this subject. Filling this need for expanded coverage, Channel Equalization: From Concepts to Detailed Mathematics presents each channel equalization topic with incremental learning methodology, from the very fundamental concept to more advanced mathematical knowledge. Offering basic concepts to more complex modeling techniques, this textbook is suitable for both practicing wireless communication engineers and graduate students.
About the Author
Gregory E. Bottomley received his PhD in electrical engineering from North Carolina State University in 1989 and has eighteen years of industrial experience in wireless communications research at Ericsson. Serving as editor-in-chief for IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology from 2000-2003, Dr. Bottomley holds more than one hundred U.S. patents, in addition to publishing thirteen journal papers, six journal letters, an encyclopedia article and forty-five conference papers. He was Ericsson Inventor of the Year in 1997 and IEEE Fellow in 2007.
