Principles of Modern Communication Systems
- Samuel O. Agbo, California Polytechnic State University
- Matthew N. O. Sadiku, Prairie View A & M University, Texas
Written specifically for a one-semester course, this textbook introduces the physical and engineering principles of communication systems using an accessible, yet mathematically rigorous, approach. Beginning with valuable background material on signals and systems, and random processes, the text then guides students through the core topics, including amplitude modulation, pulse modulation, and noise. Key terms and formulae are highlighted throughout to help students identify essential points easily. Worked examples, practice problems, and review questions reinforce concepts and enable students to develop confidence in solving problems on their own. To help visualize the concepts discussed, MATLAB-based exercises and examples are provided throughout, supported by an introductory appendix for students who are new to MATLAB. Each chapter ends with a practical applications section, showing students how concepts are used in real-life communication scenarios and devices. Figures from the book and a solutions manual, password-protected for instructors, are available online.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
'Agbo and Sadiku have done it: they have written the most impressive textbook in the field of communications! Not only have they achieved the difficult task of being technically accurate, they have also achieved the almost impossible task of being easy for students to understand as well as being a fantastic aid to instructors in the field of communications!' Charles K. Alexander, Cleveland State UniversitySee more reviews
'Most classic textbooks on communication systems have too much material for a single semester and a lot is left unread. This simplified version gives a quick rundown of the essentials that every electrical and computer engineering student should know and it is easy to read.' Sudarshan Nelatury, Penn State University, Behrend
