Quick,reliable,simple to apply-that describes the mathematicalmethods given in this book for analyzing digital transmission system performance. Written by a leading authority,this book shows you step by step how to quantify the performance capabilities of systems,from cutting-edge cellular and PCS networks to traditional radio and wireline communications. Refined and tested at the renowned AT&T Bell Laboratories,these mathematical methods permit effective performance modeling of design-stage projects,comparisons of proposed changes to existing systems,and precise analysis of the performance of operating systems. Methods developed in the book have broad applications in queuing theory,speech and image recognition,automation control theory,artificial intelligence,and finance. Digital Transmission Systems will show you how to: apply hidden Markov Models (HMMs) to model and analyze transmission performance; approximate with HMMs various statistical processes such as channels with bursts of errors,fading channels,speech,handwriting,message queues,and stock market data; analyze the performance of error correction and detection codes in channels with memory; use HMMs to evaluate communication protocol performance parameters,such as probabilities or receiving error messages,duplicate messages,not receiving a message,and throughput efficiency. With a rich assortment of chapter-ending problems and detailed illustrations,this exceptional book is perfect for teaching yourself HMM methods or for use as a classroom text
