"Professor Andreas F. Molisch, renowned researcher and educator,has put together the comprehensive book, WirelessCommunications. The second edition, which includes a wealth ofnew material on important topics, ensures the role of the text asthe key resource for every student, researcher, and practitioner inthe field."
Professor Moe Win, MIT, USA

Wireless communications has grown rapidly over the past decadefrom a niche market into one of the most important, fast movingindustries. Fully updated to incorporate the latest research anddevelopments, Wireless Communications, Second Editionprovides an authoritative overview of the principles andapplications of mobile communication technology.

The author provides an in-depth analysis of current treatment ofthe area, addressing both the traditional elements, such asRayleigh fading, BER in flat fading channels, and equalisation, andmore recently emerging topics such as multi-user detection in CDMAsystems, MIMO systems, and cognitive radio. The dominant wirelessstandards; including cellular, cordless and wireless LANs; arediscussed.

  • Topics featured include: wireless propagation channels,transceivers and signal processing, multiple access and advancedtransceiver schemes, and standardised wireless systems.
  • Combines mathematical descriptions with intuitive explanationsof the physical facts, enabling readers to acquire a deepunderstanding of the subject.
  • Includes new chapters on cognitive radio, cooperativecommunications and relaying, video coding, 3GPP Long TermEvolution, and WiMax; plus significant new sections on multi-userMIMO, 802.11n, and information theory.
  • Companion website featuring: supplementary material on 'DECT',solutions manual and presentation slides for instructors,appendices, list of abbreviations and other useful resources.
