|Wireless channels are becoming more and more important,
with the future development of wireless ad-hoc networks and the integration of
mobile and satellite communications. To this end, algorithmic detection
aspects (involved in the physical layer) will become fundamental in the design
of a communication system.
This book proposes a unified approach to detection for stochastic channels, with particular attention to wireless channels. The core idea is to show that the three main criteria of sequence detection, symbol detection and graph-based detection, can all be described within a general framework. This implies that adetection algorithm based on one criterion can be extended to the other criteria in a systematic manner.
Detection Algorithms for WirelessCommunications represents a novel
contribution with respect to the current literature, with a unique focus on
detection algorithms, as such it will prove invaluable to researchers working in
academia and industry and in the field of wireless communications, as well as
postgraduate students attending advanced courses on mobile communications.
* Includes a companion website featuring a solutions manual, electronic versions of the figures and a sample chapter *
By featuring detection algorithms which can be applied to wireless communications, as well as wired and storage systems such as those relative to transmissions over inter-symbol interference channels, this book will have far reaching appeal. Researchers and practitioners working in wireless and storage system design, both in academia and in industry, will all find it extremely useful.
