Modem Theory: An Introduction to Telecommunications Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the heart of any modern communication system is the modem, connecting the data source to the communication channel. This first course in the mathematical theory of modem design introduces the theory of digital modulation and coding that underpins the design of digital telecommunications systems. A detailed treatment of core subjects is provided, including baseband and passband modulation and demodulation, equalization, and sequence estimation. The modulation waveforms for communication channels and digital recording channels are treated in a common setting and with unified terminology. A variety of more advanced topics is also covered, such as trellis codes, turbo codes, the Viterbi algorithm, block codes, maximum likelihood and maximum posterior probability, iterative demodulation, and jamming. Numerous end-of-chapter exercises are also included to test the reader 's understanding throughout. This insightful book is ideal for senior undergraduate students studying digital communications and is also a useful reference for practicing engineers.

Book News Annotation:

Written for practicing engineers and senior undergraduates in digital communications, this thorough text on the mathematical theory of modem design introduces the theory of digital modulation and coding that is the foundation for the design of digital communications systems. Focusing on the modulation layer of communication theory, Blahut (electrical and computer engineering, U. of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) covers core subjects like baseband and passband modulation and demodulation, equalization, sequence estimation, modulation waveforms for communication channels and digital recording channels, and advanced topics like trellis codes, synchronization, the design of an additive noise channel and a discrete channel, turbo iterative demodulation, and jamming. He does not discuss networking, routing, application sessions, or the compaction and compression of source data. The book rewrites and expands selected chapters of Digital Transmission of Information (1990). Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
