A unified framework for using today's most advanced signal processing techniques

Driven by the rapidly escalating capacity demands of emerging wireless systems, researchers havedeveloped a wide array of novel signal processing techniques for use in such systems. Now, twoleading researchers synthesize the field's vast new literature, giving working engineers practicalguidance for designing advanced wireless receivers.

Drs. Xiaodong Wang and H. Vincent Poor offer a complete framework for developing, analyzing, andunderstanding the explicit algorithms needed for advanced processing in emerging wireless systems.They address a full range of physical-layer issues, including multipath, dispersion, interference,dynamism, and multiple-antenna systems. In many cases, the authors themselves developed the methodsthey present. Coverage includes:

  • An overview of contemporary wireless signaling environments and basic receiver signal processing techniques
  • Blind, group-blind, space-time, and turbo multiuser detection
  • Robust multiuser detection in non-Gaussian channels
  • Narrowband interference suppression: linear and non-linear predictive techniques, performance comparisons, and more
  • Monte Carlo Bayesian signal processing
  • Signal processing for fast fading channels
  • Advanced signal processing for coded OFDM systems
