About the Authors
  • Wireless networks are under constant pressure to provide ever-higher data rates to increasing numbers of users with greater reliability. This book is an accessible introduction to every fundamental aspect of space-time wireless communications. Space-time processing technology is a powerful tool for improving system performance that already features in the UMTS and CDMA2000 mobile standards. The ideal volume for graduate students and professionals, it features homework problems and other supporting material on a companion website.

    • Provides broad coverage that is simple without sacrificing any accuracy
    • Focuses on MIMO technology, but single input-multiple output (SIMO) and multiple input-single output (MISO) models are also developed
    • Homework exercises and other support material are available on a companion website
