A very good reference for self study of CDMA
on March 16, 2001
I have used this book for self study of the topics of multiuser detection and CDMA. The book is written very clearly and the level of math is quiet resonable. One of the advantages of this book stems from the fact that it includes a lot of problems, which part of them are solved in the home page of the author (although there is no responsibility for the solutions, as these problems were solved by some students of the author, I found the quality of the solutions very good). The reference list of the book is rich, and includes a lot of relevant and interesting papers from the last decade. Most of the typos which appear in the book are reported in the home page of Sergio Verdu. The required background needed for studying the book is an undergraduate course on digital communications. However, there is no need for a backgound on information theory, as coding aspects (which are fundamental in multi-access communications) are not discussed in the book. To conclude, I found that book of Sergio Verdu very good and would recommend it for every one who wish to learn CDMA.
