Key advances in channel identification and equalization for single-user point-to-point links.
Signal Processing Advances in Communication, Volume I is the first in a two-volume set that introduces important recent advances in signal processing (SP) tools for wireless and mobile communications. it brings together contributions by leaders in the field worldwide. This two-volume set covers an exceptionally wide range of technologies and methodologies, including noise and interference cancellation, modem design, mobile Internet services, next-generation audio/video broadcasting, cellular telephony, and wireless multimedia networks.
Volume I focuses on key advances in channel identification and equalization for single-user point-to-point links. As information-bearing signals propagate through fading media, modern equalizers must account for the variability of the mobile wireless channel, mitigate inter-symbol and co-channel interference, and suppress noise at the single- or multi-sensor receivers. This book presents the latest bandwidth-saving (semi-) blind algorithms and performance analysis, as well as linear precoding techniques that capitalize on transmit-redundancy to offer distinct improvements over training-based systems. Coverage includes:
- Subspace methods for blind identification and deconvolution
- Blind identification and equalization of channels driven by colored signals
- Optimum subspace methods; linear prediction algorithms for multichannel equalization
- Semi-blind methods for FIR multichannel estimation
- Blind decision-feedback equalization, and more
This book brings together research previously scattered across multiple journals worldwide, delivering an unprecedented collection of advanced SP techniques for optimizing single-user point-to-point links. It will be an invaluable resource for practicing engineers, researchers, managers, and any professional involved with designing or building state-of-the-art communications systems.
