Other chapters are equally well written.

The coverage of the topics on signal-spaces is fantastic, and the chapter on optimum receivers is also extremely thorough despite the age of this book. Enter your jscobs number or email address below and we’ll send you a link to download the free Kindle App.

You may have had these on your other courses, but this is a very nice treatment and referred by the later chapters. For the more enthusiastic student, 2 Chapter 5 gives the derivation of the Shannon Capacity Theorem, a concept that makes one proud to understand. Geometric representation of signals, Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization, Geometric interpretation of signals Week 3: I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle?

If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? The content and scope of this highly regarded book–the first overall synthesis of its kind–is reflected in three important objectives: No, the book obviously is not as up to date as Sklar or Proakis and doesn’t cover alot of the more “practical” aspects of modern communications Share your thoughts with other aozencraft.


I prefer it to many newer books. Coherent binary modulation formats, e. Audible Download Audio Books. Definitely buy it, you will not regret it. Chapter 4 gives the student a solid mathematical understanding of optimum receiver design, that is still valid today.

Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Emphasis is placed on understanding system design goals and to optimize the tradeoff among basic system parameters such as signal-to-noise ratio, bandwidth, etc. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. To get the free app, enter mobile phone number.

Principles of Digital Communications

All in all, my recommendation would be for someone to write a textbook wich covers the basics of communication theory as well as this book does, and then to include content on more modern coding topics, spread spectrum communications, and fading channels.

Amazon Prime Music Stream millions of songs, ad-free. Performance analysis of binary signaling schemes, performance analysis of M-ary signaling schemes, bit-level demodulation Week Students learn quickly and solidly. Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. Understanding Digital Signal Processing. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Walker, West Virginia University “I like the text’s systematic treatment of the concept of signal space, which I find most students struggle to grasp.

This book sets the standard so high that other contemporary books on communication theory in general examples: The objectives of this course is to introduce the basic principles that underlie the analysis and successful design of a digital communication system.

Principles of Digital Communications – Course

However, the divergence between modern textbooks which are “practical” versus older textbooks which focus more on “theory” is very clear. Principles of Digital Communication. It is jacos to overestimate the importance of this book. Wozencrafts treatment of “channel capacity” and the derivations which he provides are unlike anything in any other book, covering the sphere packing argument quite thoroughly the only other author to ever get this comprehensive was Shannon himself, and Pierce in his ‘is vintage book on information theory.


It will be wizencraft at nptel. However, if you feel the need to implement a Fano decoder, this is the best place to look, explanations by other books appear to be wrong! The Proakis textbook has gotten the unfortunate reputation as having the most comprehensive treatment digiral “hard-core” communication theory.

Despite its age, the material covered in the book is very much relevant to modern communications systems.

Final score will be calculated as: Read more Read less. This material needs to be understood in order to better grasp more recent developments of the past few decades.
