Examines cellular systems and standards, radio channel modeling, analysis and simulation, co-channel interference, digital modulation and detection, diversity techniques, equalization and interference cancellation and error control coding, spread spectrum techniques, multi-carrier techniques, cellular frequency planning, CDMA cellular systems, and physical layer issues of radio resource management Updated treatment of land mobile radio propagation to include space-time correlation functions, mobile-to-mobile (or vehicle-to-vehicle) channels, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels, improved simulation models for land mobile radio channels, and 3G cellular simulation models Updated Appendix to include complex Gaussian random variables, multivariate complex Gaussian random variables, and discrete-time random processes
This mathematically rigorous overview of physical layer wireless communications is now in a third, fully revised and updated edition. Along with coverage of basic principles sufficient for novice students, the volume includes plenty of finer details that will satisfy the requirements of graduate students aiming to research the topic in depth. It also has a role as a handy reference for wireless engineers. The content stresses core principles that are applicable to a broad range of wireless standards.
Beginning with a survey of the field that introduces an array of issues relevant to wireless communications and which traces the historical development of today’s accepted wireless standards, the book moves on to cover all the relevant discrete subjects, from radio propagation to error probability performance and cellular radio resource management. A valuable appendix provides a succinct and focused tutorial on probability and random processes, concepts widely used throughout the book. This new edition, revised to include the latest information on this fast-evolving subject, will be required reading for students up to graduate level, and a practical everyday tool for engineers already working in the field.
