Present-day mobile communications systems can be classified as fixed-to-mobile because they allow mobility on only one end (e.g. the mobile phone to a fixed mobile operator's cell tower). In answer to the consumer demand for better coverage and quality of service, emerging mobile-to-mobile (M-to-M) communications systems allow mobile users or vehicles to directly communicate with each other.
• Provides a detailed introduction to state-of-the-art M-to-M wireless propagation.
• Includes a DVD with time-saving MATLAB code for the models discussed in the book.

Are you a practitioner, researcher and student at a graduate and post-graduate level? If you are, then this book is for you. Author Alenka Zajic, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that provides a detailed introduction into the state of the art M-to-M wireless propagation and models for such propagation. Author Zajic, begins with a brief introduction, review of radio propagation, and statistical characteristics that are used to describe wireless communication channels. Next, the author reviews statistical characterization, modeling, and simulation of fixed-to-mobile radio channels. In addition, he details statistical characterization, modeling and simulation of vehicle-to-vehicle radio channels. The author also presents the propagation principles that govern signal propagation in air-to-ground channels and describes large-scale and small-scale fading effects. Finally, he concludes by detailing statistical characterization, modeling, and simulation of underwater vehicle-to-underwater vehicle acoustic channels. This most excellent book covers typical mobile-to-mobile communication scenarios. In addition, this great book also includes a CD with MATLAB implantations of key channel models.
