Space–Time Coding provides an introduction to the subject and its application to wireless communication systems. With the integration of internet and multimedia applications in next generation wireless communications, the demand for wide-band high data rate communication services is growing. Space–time coding is based on introducing joint correlation in transmitted signals in both space and time domains. This volume provides an overview of design principles and major space–time coding techniques starting from MIMO system information theory capacity bounds and channel models, while endeavouring to pave the way towards complex areas such as applications of space–time codes and their performance evaluation in wide-band wireless channels.
Written in a highly accessible format, Space–Time Coding is intended for postgraduate students, practicing engineers and researchers. The reader will have some familiarity with basic digital communications, matrix analysis and probability theory.
- Provides a working knowledge of Space–Time Coding.
- Explains why Space–Time Codes have been included in the standards for the third generation wireless communication systems.
- Offers illustrated examples, solutions and performance evaluation results throughout the volume.
Linear Algebra and Its Applications, 4th Edition
Renowned professor and author Gilbert Strang demonstrates that linear algebra is a fascinating subject by showing both its beauty and value. While the mathematics is there, the effort is not all concentrated on proofs. Strang's emphasis is on understanding. He explains concepts, rather than deduces. This book is written in an informal and...
Magnetics, Dielectrics, and Wave Propagation with MATLAB® Codes
Because future microwave, magnetic resonance, and wave propagation systems will involve miniature devices, nanosize structures, multifunctional applications, and composites of various types of materials, their development requires distinctly multidisciplinary collaborations. That means specialized approaches will not be sufficient to...
