Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

  • Channel identification and equalization for single-user point-to-point links
  • Bandwidth-saving blind and semi-blind algorithms and performance analysis
  • Linear precoding techniques that utilize transmit redundancy
  • For every engineering professional involved with signal processing for advanced communications

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.
