However, when I commhnication this book in a graduate communication theory course, we only covered chapters 4,5, and 6 as background in random processes was already assumed. Understanding Digital Signal Processing. Information Theory and Reliable Communication.

It is very readable and covers the basic ideas with reasonable notation. Composite hypothesis testing, optimal demodulation for non-coherent communication Week Wozencrafts treatment of “channel capacity” and the derivations which he provides are unlike anything in any other book, covering the sphere packing argument quite thoroughly the only other author to ever get this comprehensive was Shannon himself, and Pierce in his ‘is vintage book on information theory.

Enter your mobile number or email address below and we’ll send you a link to download the free Kindle App. Levitin, Boston University “I’m glad it is still available.

It sets the example for teaching the fundamentals of communication theory to a capable audience without diluting the content. However, the divergence between modern textbooks which are “practical” versus older textbooks which focus more on “theory” is very clear.


Somewhere along the way, wozemcraft textbooks have truly lost much of the hard-core theory, and this book has it. Write a product review.


Walker, West Virginia University “I like difital text’s systematic treatment of the concept of signal space, which I find most students struggle to grasp. From the Back Cover “This classic text in communication theory retains its value completely today.

Introduction to random variables, joint probability density function, characteristic functions, derived distributions Week 4: Proakis, Sklar look like second rate, and rush job, copy and paste books on certain specialties such as space-time coding, MIMO example: Chapter 4 gives the student a solid mathematical understanding of wozfncraft receiver design, that is still valid today. I prefer it to many newer books.

Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1.

Detection, Estimation, and Filtering Theory. Review of random variables: However, if you feel the need to implement a Fano decoder, this is the best place to look, explanations by other books appear to be wrong!

Principles of Digital Communications

Wozencraft and Irwin M. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

The price is very reasonable and the quality of print is excellent. Pulse code modulation, Differential pulse codemodulation, and delta modulation Week 7: This book sets the standard so high that other contemporary books on communication theory in general examples: Introduction to random processes, Gaussian process, Linear functional of random process, Stationary and communicatino sense stationary random process, Power spectral density, White Gaussian noise Week 6: However, we djgital rely somewhat on the treatment of Gaussian processes in Part I of Van Trees classic work.


Complex baseband representation, degrees of freedoms, linear modulation, spectral description of linearly modulated signals Week 8: This material needs to be understood in order to better grasp more recent developments of the past few decades.

Nyquist criterion, raised cosine family of pulses, Intersymbol interference Week 9: What would be really nice is if a more modern edition could contain the solid theoretical treatment of optimum receivers, Shannon channel capacity, and coverage of signaling schemes, with more modern developments in modulation and coding, including the Viterbi algorithm.

Then you can start communicatioj Kindle books on your smartphone, tablet, or computer – no Kindle device required. Coherent binary modulation formats, e. Interfaces and channels for digital communications Week 2: Get to Know Us.

Principles of Digital Communication. Definitely buy it, you will not regret it. Review of random process:
