By Jack Kurzweil. Written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this book focuses on the central theoretical and practical issues involved in modem design. The basic issues of baseband and passband data transmission are presented with descriptions of applications to specific digital transmission systems. Then, specific design issues are addressed, including timing and carrier recovery, channel characterization, adaptive equalization, and trellis coding. MATLAB is used to mathematically derive and simulate the performance of distorted channels, and the Symbolic Math Toolbox is used to analyze Markov processes.
