This text, like its previous editions, is an introduction to communication systems written at a level appropriate for advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students in electrical engineering. An initial study of signal transmission and the inherent limitations of physical systems establishes unifying concepts of communication. Equal attention is then given to the analysis and design of analog and digital communication systems. Mathematical techniques and models necessarily play an important role throughout the book, but always in the engineering context as the means to an end. Numerous applications have been incorporated for their practical significance and as illustrations of concepts and design strategies. Hardware considerations are also included to stimulate interest and to bring out connections with other branches of electrical engineering. The coverage of digital communication has been substantially increased in this edition, especially in the areas of spectral analysis, error-control coding, and carrier modulation. Other topics given expanded treatment are: filtering, random analysis, multiplexing, synchronization, coded pulse modulation, optimum detection, and information theory. New topics include: FM distortion, phase-lock loops, spread spectrum, predictive coding, discrete Fourier transforms, and hardware implementation using digital circuits.

The book now has a brand new chapter on spread spectrum, which includes multiple access methods and wireless systems.
A number of topics have been added or expanded, including: DSL (digital subscriber lines) including ADSL and ISDN; SONET, Computer Networks, including OSI and TCP/IP protocols and data encryption; digital audio recording, HDTV and expanded treatment of receivers; and turbo coding, trellis coded modulation and updated and expanded treatment of convolutional coding.
New worked out examples and end-of-chapter problems have been added to further update the book.
The pedagogy of the book has been greatly enhanced to further the reader's understanding of the material. The chapters each open with a listing of the main sections, a general statement of what is to come, and objectives. Optional topics within chapters are marked with a star. Key terms are boldfaced when their definitions are provided. Examples, which often have matching exercises, are cleary marked for easy reference. Key ideas are boxed to distinguish them for the reader.
This exciting revision of Communication Systems, a classic text in the communications field, presents an introduction to electrical communication systems, including analysis methods, design principles, and hardware considerations. The fourth edition has been completely updated to reflect current technology in this ever-evolving field. This edition also features two new co-authors: Janet Rutledge of the University of Maryland at Baltimore and Paul Crilly of the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, in addition to author Bruce Carlson of RPI.
The book is intended for an introductory communications course and is written at a level appropriate for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students.
The fourth edition covers both analog and digital communications. It features worked examples and exercises for students to solve within chapters, helping them to master new concepts as they are introduced.
