Brings together theories, tradeoffs and implications for system design for digital communications by satellites, with emphasis on modulation, multiple access and coding techniques. The book includes tables and worked examples with emphasis on practical design parameters; also over 130 problems. Presents much new material, including over-all digital satellite system design equations; carrier and clock recovery of burst moderns; an introduction to integrated coding and modulation techniques; a complete survey of TDMA satellite systems with emphasis on synchronization problems; an introduction to packet satellite networks; ARQ for satellite channel; detailed treatment of Viterbi and sequential decoding; and a unified treatment of threshold decoding for both block and convolutional codes.
Energy Storage not only plays an important role in conservinq the energy but also improves the performance and reliability of a wide range of energy systems. Energy storagp. leads to saving of premium fuels and makes the system morA cost effective by reducing the wastage of energy. In most systems there is a mismatch between the energy supply and energy demand. The energy storage can even out this imbalance and thereby help in savings of capital costs. Enerqy storage is all the more important where the enerqy source is intermittent such as Solar Energy. The use of jntermittent energy sources is likely to grow. If more and more solar energy is to be used for domestic and industrial applicatio...
Electrical Engineering/Communications/Information Theory "The Berlekamp article alone will make this book worth having." ––David Forney, Vice President, Motorola Codex Reed–Solomon Codes and Their Applications Edited by Stephen B. Wicker, Georgia Institute of Technology and Vijay K. Bhargava, University of Victoria On the Voyager spacecraft, they were responsible for sending clear pictures of the planets back to earth. They have also played a key role in the digital audio revolution. They are Reed–Solomon error codes: the extremely powerful codes that provide critical error control for many different types of digital communications systems. This outstanding collection of thirteen ori...
A self-contained guide to the state-of-the-art in cooperative communications and networking techniques for next generation cellular wireless systems, this comprehensive book provides a succinct understanding of the theory, fundamentals and techniques involved in achieving efficient cooperative wireless communications in cellular wireless networks. It consolidates the essential information, addressing both theoretical and practical aspects of cooperative communications and networking in the context of cellular design. This one-stop resource covers the basics of cooperative communications techniques for cellular systems, advanced transceiver design, relay-based cellular networks, and game-theoretic and micro-economic models for protocol design in cooperative cellular wireless networks. Details of ongoing standardization activities are also included. With contributions from experts in the field divided into five distinct sections, this easy-to-follow book delivers the background needed to develop and implement cooperative mechanisms for cellular wireless networks.
This book provides a unified view on the state-of-the-art of cognitive radio technology. It includes a set of research and survey articles featuring the recent advances in theory and applications of cognitive radio technology for the next generation (e.g., fourth generation) wireless communication networks. The contributed articles cover both the theoretical concepts (e.g., information-theoretic analysis) and system-level implementation issues.
Communications, Information and Network Security is an excellent reference for both professional and academic researchers in the field of communication. Those working in space-time coding, multiuser detection, and wireless networks will find the book to be of particular use. New and highly original results by leading experts in communication, information theory, and data security are presented. Communications, Information and Network Security is a tribute to the broad and profound work of Ian Blake in the field of communication. All of the contributors have individually and collectively dedicated their work to Professor Blake.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 6th International Conference on High Performance Computing, HiPC'99, held in Calcutta, India in December 1999. The 20 revised full papers and 40 short papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 112 submissions. The papers are organized in sections on architecture/compilers, cluster computing, compilers and tools, scheduling, parallel algorithms, mobile computing, parallel applications, and interconnection networks.
