Communication systems have become part of our daily lives through a variety of communications media such as wireline telephone channels, microwave radio, fiber-optic channels, and satellite channels. To help readers keep pace with the explosive growth of communication systems, this comprehensive volume introduces the basic principles underlying the analysis and design of both analog and digital communication systems.

Introducing concepts in the analysis and design of analog and digital communication systems, this text is intended primarily for use in a senior or first-year graduate introductory course in communications. It assumes a strong background in signals and linear systems theory and elementary probability. The text provides a detailed coverage of communication systems topics, including source coding, channel coding, baseband and carrier modulation, channel distortion and equalization, synchronization, and spread-spectrum techniques. Because of the increasing prevalence of digital communication technologies, it gives significant emphasis to digital communication concepts and techniques. Although the text is more theoretical than applications-oriented, it contains over 180 worked-out examples and over 480 problems (many with answers) to aid the reader in applying the theory to real-world situations. The authors give extra attention to the more challenging concepts, making this an ideal text for those new to the subject.From the Publisher:
