This is one of the first books on the emerging research topic of digital compensation of RF imperfections. The book presents a new multidisciplinary vision on the design of wireless communication systems. In this approach the imperfections of the RF front-ends are accepted and digital signal processing algorithms are designed to suppress their impact on system performance. The book focuses on multiple-antenna orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO OFDM).
