Understanding Digital Signal Processing.

Principles of Digital Communications

Chernoff bound such that even an undergraduate can understand it. Geometric representation of signals, Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization, Geometric interpretation of signals Week 3: Despite its age, the material covered in the book is very much relevant to modern communications systems.

However, we did rely somewhat on the treatment of Gaussian processes in Part I of Van Trees classic work. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle?

Principles of Digital Communications – Course

Amazon Prime Music Stream millions of songs, ad-free. Visit our Help Pages. The content and scope of this highly regarded book–the first overall synthesis of its kind–is reflected in three important objectives: Complex dlgital representation, degrees of freedoms, linear modulation, spectral description of linearly modulated signals Week 8: Coherent binary modulation formats, e.

It sets the example for teaching the fundamentals of communication theory to a capable audience without diluting the content.


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 Wozencraft and Irwin M.


If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? Performance analysis of binary and M-ary signaling schemes: Performance analysis of binary signaling schemes, performance analysis of M-ary signaling schemes, bit-level demodulation Week The Proakis textbook has gotten the unfortunate reputation as having the most comprehensive treatment regarding “hard-core” communication theory.

From the Back Cover “This classic text in communication theory retains its value completely today. Digital communication is a fundamental course in the electronics and communication stream. 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. This material needs to be understood in order to better grasp more recent developments of the past few decades.

Final score will be calculated as: It will be e-verifiable at nptel. Performance analysis of non-coherent communication: Customers who bought this item also bought. Be the first to review this item Amazon Bestsellers Rank: Proakis, Sklar look like second rate, and rush job, copy and paste books on certain specialties such as space-time coding, MIMO example: Composite hypothesis testing, optimal demodulation for non-coherent communication Week I prefer it to many newer books.

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.

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.


Detection, Estimation, and Filtering Theory. However, when I used this wozencrzft in a graduate communication theory course, we only covered chapters 4,5, and 6 as background in random processes was already assumed.

You may have had these on your other courses, but this is a very nice treatment and referred by the later chapters. Chapter 4 gives the student a solid mathematical understanding of optimum receiver design, that is still valid today. The coverage of the topics on signal-spaces is bby, and the chapter on optimum receivers is also extremely thorough despite the age of this book.

Digital communication jjacobs have been used in all modern communication systems. For the more enthusiastic student, 2 Chapter 5 gives the derivation of the Shannon Capacity Theorem, a concept that makes one proud to understand.

However, the communicaiton between modern textbooks which are “practical” versus older textbooks which focus more on “theory” is very clear. Somewhere along the way, today’s textbooks have truly lost much of the hard-core theory, and this book has it.

Definitely buy it, you will not regret it. Nyquist criterion, raised cosine family of pulses, Intersymbol interference Week 9:
