## Description

The fourth edition of Digital Communications has undergone a minor revision. Several new topics have been added, including serial and parallel concatenated codes, punctured convolutional codes, turbo TCM and turbo equalization, and spatial multiplexing. Since this is an introductory-level text, the treatment of these topics is limited in scope.

The book is designed to serve as a text for a first-year graduate-level course for students in electrical engineering. It is also designed to serve as a text for self-study and as a reference book for the practicing engineer involved in the design of digital communications systems. As a background, I presume that the reader has a thorough understanding of basic calculus and elementary linear systems theory and some prior knowledge of probability and stochastic processes.

DDAlthough this book has much more information than we covered in my class, it is very thorough, and most chapters have well-explained examples. I’ll keep this one for future reference!

Got this for my college class.
