From the Back Cover:

A practical, "first-principles" approach to space-time wireless channel design.

  • A practical approach to space-time wireless channel design
  • Integrates essential principles from communications, electromagnetics, and random process theory
  • Includes detailed coverage of diversity, multipath applications, and antenna array design
  • Contains extensive examples, illustrations, and problem sets

Next-generation broadband radio systems must deliver unprecedented performance and higher data rates, while coping with increased spectral congestion. To achieve these goals, engineers need an in-depth understanding of radio channels that fade in time, frequency, and space. In Space-Time Wireless Channels, leading researcher Gregory D. Durgin presents a pragmatic, first-principles approach that integrates crucial concepts and techniques from communications, electromagnetics, and random process theory.

Durgin focuses on comprehension and practicality, offering extensive examples, illustrations, and problem sets, while avoiding gratuitious mathematics and moving most derivations to end-of-chapter appendices. Coverage includes:

  • Fundamentals of space, time, and frequency transmission and random process theory
  • Electromagnetic description of space-time channels and the physics of small-scale fading
  • First- and second-order statistics of fading channels
  • Angle spectrum concepts and applications, including vector/scalar space and multipath shape factors
  • Antenna diversity, temporal diversity, and bit error rates
  • Multipath channels: separation, signaling, block coding, and antenna array design

Appendices list special functions, Fourier transform examples, and random process theory concepts, as well as all relevant mathematical symbols, conventions, and acronyms.

About the Author:

GREGORY D. DURGIN currently researches space-time channel modeling as a Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) post-doctoral fellow at Morinaga Laboratory, Osaka University. Durgin performed his Ph.D. work at Virginia Tech's Mobile & Portable Radio Research Group (MPRG) in radio wave propagation, channel measurement, and applied electromagnetics. With co-authors Theodore S. Rappaport and Hao Xu, he received the 1998 Stephen O. Rice Prize for best original research paper published in the IEEE Transactions on Communications. He has published 20 technical papers and serves regularly as a consultant to industry.
