Written for students, Principles of Communications provides comprehensive coverage on the principles of communications at the physical layer. In addition to stressing fundamental concepts, the book provides sections on currently important areas such as spread spectrum, cellular communications, and orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing. Topics include block diagrams of communication systems, a summary of systems analysis techniques, and probabilistic approaches to system optimization.
MATLAB is used to solve numerous examples in the book.In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB code files is available for download.
