This book develops the concepts for the transmission of digital information sequences through analog, band limited channels, including the topics of pulse shaping, channels with amplitude and delay distortion, eye patterns, zero forcing and mean squared error equalization, and data scrambling.
The text considers the effects of noise in digital communications, developing the fundamental ideas of signal space, optimum symbol-by-symbol detection, and modulation system design, with particular emphasis on maximum likelihood and maximum a posteriori detection and system performance comparisons based on energy per bit to noise ratio and average error probability. The key technique of maximum likelihood sequence estimation is also developed.
Tutorial coverage provides an introduction to block and convolutional codes for error control coding, including coding and decoding methods for error detection and correction, tree and trellis representations, and Viterbi decoding. Some performance comparisons for selected codes in terms of energy per bit to noise ratio versus bit error probability are presented.
This book examines joint coding and modulation methods such as constant envelope modulation and trellis coded modulation, including examples such as minimum shift keying and offset quadrature phase shift keying.
Jerry D. Gibson is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is co-author of the books Digital Compression for Multimedia (Morgan-Kaufmann, 1998) and Introduction to Nonparametric Detection with Applications (Academic Press, 1975 and IEEE Press, 1995) and author of the textbook, Principles of Digital and Analog Communications (Prentice-Hall, second ed., 1993). He is Editor-in-Chief of The Mobile Communications Handbook (CRC Press, 3rd ed., 2012), Editor-in-Chief of The Communications Handbook (CRC Press, 2nd ed., 2002), and Editor of the book, Multimedia Communications: Directions and Innovations (Academic Press, 2000). His most recent books are Rate Distortion Bounds for Voice and Video (Coauthor with Jing Hu, NOW Publishers, 2014), and Information Theory and Rate Distortion Theory for Communications and Compression (Morgan-Claypool, 2014).
Dr. Gibson was Associate Editor for Speech Processing for the IEEE Transactions on Communications from 1981 to 1985 and Associate Editor for Communications for the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory from 1988-1991. He was an IEEE Communications Society Distinguished Lecturer for 2007-2008.
In 1990, Dr. Gibson received The Fredrick Emmons Terman Award from the American Society for Engineering Education, and in 1992, he was elected Fellow of the IEEE. He was the recipient of the 1993 IEEE Signal Processing Society Senior Paper Award for the Speech Processing area. He received the IEEE Transactions on Multimedia Best Paper Award in 2010 and the IEEE Technical Committee on Wireless Communications Recognition Award for contributions in the area of Wireless Communications Systems and Networks in 2009.
