From the Back Cover
A new edition that takes students to the cutting edge and back!
Extensively revised and updated, this new fourth edition of COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS is the most complete undergraduate textbook on the theories and principles behind today's most advanced communications systems.
New features include:
- MATLAB computer experiments that demonstrate important aspects of communication theory
- Expanded coverage of emerging digital technologies, such as digital subscriber line (DSL), carrierless amplitude modulation/phase modulation (CAP), and discrete multi-tone (DMT)
- Dozens of examples that relate theory to real-world communication systems
Superbly organized, the text skillfully guides students through topics ranging from pulse modulation to passband digital transmission, and from random processes to error-control coding. Throughout, Haykin presents difficult concepts in language that students can easily understand.

Topic and explanations: The topic is very complicated and so it is expected that the author will try to make it easier and appealing. But nothing of that happens.
Examples: the examples given are insufficient and those given most of the time complicate more what you thought you understood about the topic.
Problems. There is not even a small possibility to resolve any of the problems given at the end of each chapter with what you had read previously on them.
Sub topics. Most of them do not have an explanation about their specific application.
It seems this book was written for 1950’s student generation, not for millennials.
Obviously the authors are scholars and they know everything about communication systems. But they need to improve their ability to write books considerably.
