OFDM Wireless LANs: A Theoretical and Practical Guide explores OFDM WLAN basics, including components of OFDM and multi-carrier WLAN standards. This book also provides a practical approach to OFDM by including software and hardware examples and detailed implementation explanations. And it defines and explains the mathematical concepts behind OFDM necessary for successful OFDM WLAN implementations.
