This exciting new book addresses the need for a text that
presents a broad range of topics on wireless communication systems for
undergraduate seniors and first year graduate
students. Introduction to Wireless Systems is the first book
to provide the basic analytical tools, fundamental physics, and
communication theory needed to fully appreciate the field of
Key features of Introduction to Wireless Systems include:
- A familiar, informal style which reviewers have called
“pleasant to read.” Concise, readable, and informative, the text
exposes students to material that is relevant to both academia and
- A wealth of example and homework problems to help illustrate and
facilitate the understanding of the fundamental concepts of wireless
- Learning by doing ... Extensive MATLAB® based exercise sets
appear in every chapter.
- About 200 exercises.
- Chapter summaries that reinforce concepts covered in
- Coverage of a wide array of topics in wireless systems
ranging from new propagation models to 3G systems and Bluetooth®.
