About the Authors
  • Adopting a balanced mix of theory, algorithms and practical design issues, this comprehensive volume explores cutting-edge applications in adaptive wireless communications and the implications these techniques have for future wireless network performance. Presenting practical concerns in the context of different strands from information theory, parameter estimation theory, array processing and wireless communication, the authors present a complete picture of the field. Topics covered include advanced multiple-antenna adaptive processing, ad hoc networking, MIMO, MAC protocols, space-time coding, cellular networks and cognitive radio, with the significance and effects of both internal and external interference a recurrent theme throughout. A broad, self-contained technical introduction to all the necessary mathematics, statistics, estimation theory and information theory is included, and topics are accompanied by a range of engaging end-of-chapter problems. With solutions available online, this is the perfect self-study resource for students of advanced wireless systems and wireless industry professionals.

    • Addresses practical issues such as power consumption, dynamic range, and signal and noise model errors
    • Accompanied by over 100 problems for solution
