Emphasis on digital communications—Prepares students for state-of-the-art communication systems.
Review of the background required for the course in two chapters—Includes one chapter on linear system analysis with emphasis on the frequency domain approach and Fourier techniques, and one chapter on probability, random variables, and random processes.
Addresses frequent need for students to review these topics in a course on communications; gives students quick access to the relevant material from these courses.
Computer problems in each chapter that require MATLAB to solve—Gives students experience in simulating communication systems and comparing results with theory.
A large number of problems in varying levels of difficulty—At the end of each chapter.
Many worked examples—Help students gain a better understanding of the concepts discussed.
Two separate chapters on Information Theory and Coding—Provides sufficient emphasis on these key topics.
