Digital Communication over Fading Channels
The four short years since Digital Communication over FadingChannels became an instant classic have seen a virtual explosion ofsignificant new work on the subject, both by the authors and bynumerous researchers around the world. Foremost among these is agreat deal of progress in the area of transmit diversity andspace-time coding and the associated multiple input-multiple output(MIMO) channel. This new edition gathers these and other results,previously scattered throughout numerous publications, into asingle convenient and informative volume.
Like its predecessor, this Second Edition discusses in detailcoherent and noncoherent communication systems as well as a largevariety of fading channel models typical of communication linksfound in the real world. Coverage includes single- and multichannelreception and, in the case of the latter, a large variety ofdiversity types. The moment generating function (MGF)-basedapproach for performance analysis, introduced by the authors in thefirst edition and referred to in literally hundreds ofpublications, still represents the backbone of the book'spresentation. Important features of this new edition include:
* An all-new, comprehensive chapter on transmit diversity,space-time coding, and the MIMO channel, focusing on performanceevaluation
* Coverage of new and improved diversity schemes
* Performance analyses of previously known schemes in new anddifferent fading scenarios
* A new chapter on the outage probability of cellular mobile radiosystems
* A new chapter on the capacity of fading channels
* And much more
Digital Communication over Fading Channels, Second Edition is anindispensable resource for graduate students, researchersinvestigating these systems, and practicing engineers responsiblefor evaluating their performance.
