About the Authors
  • Covering fundamental principles through to practical applications, this self-contained guide describes indispensable mathematical tools for the analysis and design of advanced wireless transmission and reception techniques in MIMO and OFDM systems. The analysis-oriented approach develops a thorough understanding of core concepts and discussion of various example schemes shows how to apply these concepts in practice. The book focuses on techniques for advanced diversity combining, channel adaptive transmission and multiuser scheduling, the foundations of future wireless systems for the delivery of highly spectrum-efficient wireless multimedia services. Bringing together conventional and novel results from a wide variety of sources, it will teach you to accurately quantify trade-offs between performance and complexity for different design options so that you can determine the most suitable design choice based on your specific practical implementation constraints.

    • Detailed mathematical derivations are included to provide a thorough understanding of the theoretical basics
    • Focuses on design and performance analysis of techniques for advanced diversity combining, channel adaptive transmission and multiuser scheduling
    • Demonstrates how to accurately quantify trade-offs between performance and complexity of different design options in the context of emerging wireless systems, such as those based on MIMO and OFDM techniques
