This supplement to any standard communication systems text is one of the first books to successfully integrate the use of MATLAB® in the study of communication systems concepts and problems. It has been developed for instructors and students who wish to make use of MATLAB® as an integral part of their study. The former will find the means by which to use MATLAB® as a powerful tool to motivate students and illustrate essential theory without having to customize the applications themselves; the latter will find relevant problems quickly and easily. The book includes numerous MATLAB®-based simulations and examples of communication systems, while providing a good balance of theory and hands-on computer experience. This Updated Printing revises the book and MATLAB® files (available for downloading from the Brooks/Cole Bookware Companion Resource Center Web Site) to MATLAB® V5.
Serving as a communications systems textbook supplement, this volume provides exercises that may be solved on the computer using the student edition of MATLAB. Assuming some familiarity with basic MATLAB, this volume is for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students in electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science.
